About the Author: Robin Hobb

I am shocked to find that some people think a 2 star I liked it rating is a bad rating What I liked it I LIKED it That means I read the whole thing, to the last page, in spite of my life raining comets on me It s a good book that survives the reading process with me If a book is so so, it ends up under the bed somewhere, or maybe under a stinky judo bag in the back of the van So a 2 st I am shocked to find that some people think a 2 star I liked it rating is a bad rating What I liked it I LIKED it That means I read the whole thing, to the last page, in spite of my life raining comets on me It s a good book that survives the reading process with me If a book is so so, it ends up under the bed somewhere, or maybe under a stinky judo bag in the back of the van So a 2 star from me means,yes, I liked the book, and I d loan it to a friend and it went everywhere in my jacket pocket or purse until I finished it A 3 star means that I ve ignored friends to finish it and my sink is full of dirty dishes A 4 star means I m probably in trouble with my editor for missing a deadline because I was reading this book But I want you to knowI don t finish books I don t like There s too many good ones out there waiting to be found.Robin Hobb is the author of three well received fantasy trilogies The Farseer Trilogy Assassin s Apprentice, Royal Assassin, and Assassin s Quest , The Liveship Traders Trilogy Ship of Magic, Mad Ship and Ship of Destiny and the Tawny Man Trilogy Fool s Errand, Golden Fool, and Fool s Fate Her current work in progress is entitled Shaman s Crossing Robin Hobb lives and works in Tacoma, Washington, and has been a professional writer for over 30 years.In addition to writing, her interests include gardening, mushrooming, and beachcombing She and her husband Fred have three grown children and one teenager, and three grand children.She also writes as Megan Lindholm, and works under that name have been finalists for the Hugo award, the Nebula Award, and the Endeavor award She has twice won an Isaac Asimov s Science Fiction Readers Award

    4.5 5 starsColor me impressed, just the first book in the Liveship Traders trilogy alone is already better than the entire Farseer trilogy.Don t get me wrong, the Farseer trilogy certainly has its charm but the third book of the trilogy, Ass Quest, was a massive disappointment for me Fortunately, that didn t stop me from giving Hobb another try because this was just utterly fantastic.Ship of Magic, the first book in the Liveship Traders trilogy which is also the second out five subseries within 4.5 5 starsColor me impressed, just the first book in the Liveship Traders trilogy alone is already better than the entire Farseer trilogy.Don t get me wrong, the Farseer trilogy certainly has its charm but the third book of the trilogy, Ass Quest, was a massive disappointment for me Fortunately, that didn t stop me from giving Hobb another try because this was just utterly fanta...

    This was good, but it wasn t as good as Robin Hobb s Farseer books Fitz is an excellent narrator, and an excellent focal point for a series, though this uses several point of view characters Some are great and some are, unfortunately, as dry as dust Wintrow was by far my favourite character in this series He is torn between two lives As a young boy he was sent away from home and raised as a priest it s a life he has gotten used to, but circumstances demands that he returns to his former li This was good, but it wasn t as good as Robin Hobb s Farseer books Fitz is an excellent narrator, and an excellent focal point for a series, though this uses several point of view characters Some are great and some are, unfortunately, as dry as dust Wintrow was by far my favourite character in this series He is torn between two ...

    Final verdict a great antidote to A Game of Thrones, with brilliant, complicated characters.My friend introduced to me to Ship of Magic because I d been complaining about annoying stupid characters She recommended Robin Hobb in general, but Ship of Magic especially, primarily for Althea Vestrit, our primary protagonist One thing I want to point out is that I would have never picked this up on my own Not for the title, not the cover yes, I m disproportionately attracted to pretty covers the Final verdict a great antidote to A Game of Thrones, with brilliant, complicated characters.My friend introduced to me to Ship of Magic because I d been complaining about annoying stupid characters She recommended Robin Hobb in general, but Ship of Magic especially, primarily for Althea Vestrit, our primary protagonist One thing I want to point out is that I would have never picked this up on my own Not for the title, not the cover yes, I m disproportionately attracted to pretty covers there s a blog post in there somehow , and not even the cover copy Although Althea is my middle name But normally not even that Thank goodness for my friend, because this book seems to have marked a change in the books I m reading after a streak of at best mediocre reading, I m enjoying it again That can t be attributed entirely to this book, but did contribute to the exhilaration of my reading experience Althea Vestrit is the younger da...

    I was a huge fan of Robin Hobb ever since I read her story Homecoming in Epic And while I loved her Farseer series, this has surpassed those as my favorite books.Vivacia is a liveship, a boat made of wizardwood, that after three deaths of family members on board comes to life Liveships are the only ships that can make the journey up the river to the Rain Wilds in order to do trade, and are extremely valuable.This book follows several points of view, including a pirate named Kennit, Althea the I was a huge fan of Robin Hobb ever since I read her story Homecoming in Epic And while I loved her Farseer series, this has surpassed those as my favorite books.Vivacia is a liveship, a boat made of wizardwood, that after three deaths of family members on board comes to life Liveships are the only ships that can make the journey up the river to the Rain Wilds in order to do trade, and are extremely valuable.This book follows several points of view, including a pirate named Kennit, Althea the daughter of the last sailor to die aboard Vivacia, her sister Keffria, her nephew Winthrow, and various others Some I loved, some I hated.I also really enjoyed the addition to the world she has created in Farseer While some of the places in the Fa...

    It started slow for me until I realized that nothing much was going to happen until the extended family all had their say That being said, the plot started weaving and the world started blooming So many bad things started happening to everyone so slowly that I wondered if I, too, was slowly being boiled alive.That s the effect this novel had on me It s very long, and its very detailed If you like immersive fantasy and especially nautical fantasy, then you ll love this.Edit 7 5 16Looking back It started slow for me until I realized that nothing much was going to happen until the extended family all had their say That being said, the plot started weaving and the world started blooming So many bad things started happening to everyone so slowly that I wondered if I, too, was slowly being boiled alive.That s the effect this novel had on me It s very long, and its very detailed If you like immersive fantasy and especially na...
