    Description

    The gripping finale to Robin Hobb’s classic Farseer trilogy.

    Keystone. Gate. Crossroads. Catalyst.

    Fitz is about to discover the truth about the Fool's prophecy. Having been resurrected from his fatal tortures in Regal's dungeons, Fitz has once more foiled Regal's attempts to be rid of him. Now, back in his own body, and after months of rehabilitation, Fitz begins the painful and slow process of learning the ways of a man again.

    Under the watchful eye of Burrich, old King Shrewd's Stablemaster, Fitz must learn to cast off the wild but carefree ways of the wolf and enter once more the human world: a world beset ever more viciously by the relentless Red Ship Raiders who are now left free to plunder any coastal town they please. But more immediately, a world in which he finds he is utterly alone.

    Regal has stripped the kingdom of its riches and retired to the inland city of Tradeford. Of Verity, on his quest to find the legendary Elderings, there has been no word; Molly, Kettricken, and the Fool have all vanished. Unless Fitz can find Verity and help him in his quest, the Six Duchies will perish and there will be no safe place to live.

    Commentaires

    “Hobb is one of the great modern fantasy writers … what makes her novels as addictive as morphine is not just their imaginative brilliance but the way her characters are compromised and manipulated by politics.” ( The Times)
    “In today’s crowded fantasy market Robin Hobb’s books are like diamonds in a sea of zircons” (George R. R. Martin)

    Great long story, slightly weak ending

    I loved every minute of it, right up until near the end. It then seemed like the author just wanted to be done with it, like some things just magically happen or things that the lead character has been struggling with always he just sort of suddenly succeeds with, the cavalry files in from overhead and saves the day etc. A little bit too easy it feels like, when comparing to the otherwise very long and detailed book about every minute of this guy's life.

    Good characters, poor reveal

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    yes, if he or she were a fan of fantasy

    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I hate it when you know the plot twists before the protagonist. I was just thinking he must be an idiot if he can't see it.

    What does Paul Boehmer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Distinct, appropriate voices.

    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No

    Any additional comments?

    I cared about the character, but I was annoyed his development was slow in parts, and that he always reacted emotionally. Considering what he'd been through you'd think he would have got a handle on his emotions and never seemed to develop. He was also thick, you can see plot twists coming a mile away, but the hero never seems to which had me yelling at my car stereo "you idiot!" more than once. But I did like the characters, I liked the overall story and I liked the world building.

    I think if this book had been written today it would be returned to the author for a rewrite. For example detailed supporting characters that you never see again. But in spite of all its flaws, I'm glad I listened to it and there was more to enjoy than to dislike.

    I didn't like this book at all.

    I really enjoyed the other two books in this series. Which in a way makes this book even worse.
    Everything I liked about Fits is removed, and all that is left is a stumbling selfish idiot.
    He has become a slave to his emotions (mainly fear) with no resolve. Several times after deciding something he would just turn right around with the excuse "I could not stop myself" or "I just had to do it". At one point I got so angry over one of these I had to stop the audiobook and go hit my kitchen table.

    In fact if I think about it, I don't like the way any of the characters have developed, except for perhaps Nighteyes.

    After every chapter there is a section where the narrator just gives reader information about the world. These are often repetitive and we get told a lot of things we already know.
    At at least two points the narrator pauses from the story and provides spoilers of whats gonna happen.

    I just started with part 5 and i honestly don't want to continue.
    I think I'll just pretend book 2 ended with Fits living happily ever after as a wolf.

    wonderful book and geniusly narrated

    When I started the first book of the trilogy I wasn't very happy with either the story nor narrating but still I knew I would like it.
    I'm not sure when it happened but I absolutely fell in love with the series.
    Now I fear starting the next trilogy. Apparently it's not a story directly about Fitz and the wolf and narrated by another. The reviews for that narrator are also terrible compared to Boehmer's excellent feedback. I looked for other books narrated by him in the end. I will try the next trilogy though. Hopefully I will like it.

    Breathtaking series

    The farseer trilogy is really amazing and the audiobooks definitely don't disappoint.
    the narrator sometimes switch voices when it doesn't fits and that can be a little confusing. But it doesn't happen a lot to really bother the experience.
    An amazing end to this trilogy and a really great introduction to this magnificent world that Robin has created. A fantasy masterpiece definitely.

    Sorrowfully sweet ending for trilogy

    Much sadness and mishap is packed into this book. Nevertheless enjoyable listen. Paul narrates so wonderfully well.

    Unbelievable but true: even better than pt. 1 & 2

    This third part brings us to a truly climactic close of the first Farseer trilogy. It has everything you want from this kind of story: thriller, adventure, fantasy, mystery, magic, character growth through excruciating trials. Fan-tas-tic.

    Narration, as it was with the other two parts, is great. I have now started with the second Fitz trilogy, the Tawny Man trilogy (which starts with Fool's Errand), because I couldn't get enough of the story of Fitz and his Nighteyes. Fortunately, I discovered there's even a third trilogy, Fitz and the Fool. So 9 fat parts about these characters, yea!

    Recommend!
    But you do need to listen to (or read) parts 1 and 2 first, this is a continuing story.

    In spite of other reviewers I thought the narrator did a good job. The story was good and involving.

    Hated the ending

    I enjoyed most of the book. At times it was really slow and I almost felt like stopping, but most of the time it was enjoyable. The first two books were better in my opinion.

    Gute Trilogie, aber man erwartet mehr.

    Eine insgesamt schöne Geschichte, aber das Ende lässt einen leicht unbefriedigt zurück. Vielleicht ist das beabsichtigt, da es ja noch viele andere Bände zu Robin Hobbs Welt gibt. Kann man sich gönnen. Der Sprecher ist gewöhnungsbedürftig.

    Bester Teil von allen drei.
    Der Schlussteil ist okay. Wurde meiner Meinung nach etwas schnell abgefertigt.

    Very Disappointing

    I found the story was dull, the characters 1 dimensional. The narrator destroys what's left.

    In die Länge gezogen

    Die Verlängerung der Geschichte, die bereits nach dem ersten Teil in ihren grundlegenden Zügen hinreichend ausgetreten war, geht in die nächste Runde. Der Autor kommt nicht zum Punkt und die sideplots sind gekünstelt und ziehen die Geschichte ohne Not in die Länge. Dabei liegt der Ausgang der jeweiligen Nebengeschichte nach den ersten Zeilen schon auf der Hand. Für alle die es noch nicht gelesen haben: Lebenszeit ist begrenzt.
