Soldier’s Son Trilogy – The Discerning Writer
They remember believing him guilty of unspeakable crimes, condemning him, and then watc We've found that while readers like to know what we think of a book they find additional reader reviews a massive help in deciding if it is the right book for them. So if you have a spare moment, please tell us your thoughts by writing a reader's review.
I will agree that the information in the first two novels was a lot, and sometimes maybe even boring. BUT - reading the third book made me realise that I would not understand Nevare's deep conflict without the first two books. For me the third book is a tour de force about human consciousness and I just loved it. I was glad I did not give up reading all three. What made me go on reading, was the fact that I have read Hobb's other trilogies and have just learned to trust her writing and portrayal of secondary world's in her fantasy novels. I therefore wish to not rate the first book without considering the whole trilogy.
This is a Robin Hobb book. And that means it is well written, well-researched and well-thought out. The story itself will appeal to adults both young and not quite so young, and the use a young lead character going away to schooling, meeting new friends, making new enemies and the joys and hardships they endure have long been appealing to fantasy readers A Wizard of Earthsea and Harry Potter being examples, although in Shaman's Crossing the school is of the military type. It is a very good book but I do also understand the criticism it receives, there is little cheer and Navare seems to jump from frying pan to fire with regularity.
And I found the dream sequences a little hard to follow. Thankfully the ending provided a little uplift in mood and so I will not hesitate to read the second book, Forest Mage, although I am told poor Navare will not find life easy Recommended, but keep in mind that its bleakness can be a little overwhelming at times. Oh, and there is a strong environmental message running through that will appeal to many readers. I liked this book, however at times when Hobb expands on certain subjects like the old wars fought etc. One good and the other not so good. Firstly it gives validity to the world, a history which adds to the realism.
On the downside it takes the reader away from what is going on with the character at that time. This makes whatever is going on seem like forever till something happens. But maybe that's just me.
I don't know if I would read the second one. I really enjoyed this book, I'm doing it for a school project. But what would be the theme to the book? I loved this trilogy. I thought that he was mistreated and that i wish he would have done other stuff, and it was confusing sometimes about who I wanted to win and what should happen.
But I don't think I would read twice either. Still, I love the ending of the last book, although didn't look to good at first. I really enjoyed Hobb's other trilogies but this was not her finest moment. This is the best book of the series and I rate this a two if that tells you anything. I agree with Firus, the book isn't actually bad, it's just so Everything goes wrong for Nevare, everyone blames him, everyone hates him, he's confused, indecisive for a reason, which you know if you read the book. It's just so much misery and unfairness, a bit too much for my taste. Wasn't that bad, still finished the trilogy, but it's not something I would read twice.
A bonanza of boring. Anyway, this series seems best skipped frankly. Sorry Robin - still like your other work. This was brutal to get through.
