Bu kitap kalbin zayıflığı için değil ve iyi bir arka hikayenin tüm küçük somunlarını ve cıvatalarını bilmeyi gerçekten sevmelisiniz. Hobbit'i ve Yüzüklerin Efendisi'ni seviyor ve bu hikayelerdeki karakterlerin bu kitaplarda bulundukları yere nasıl geldiklerini öğrenmek istiyorsanız, okuyun. İlk bölümü ANCAK iterek geçmek zordur ve Bilbo, Gandalf, Aragorn ve bu masallardaki diğer tüm karakterlere daha da zenginlik getiren bir hikaye bulacaksınız.
I loved Borderliners and The Woman and the Ape. Hoeg's style is still there but I got a little exhausted, and also misled, by every. single. moment. being super suspenseful and high-octane. I know to expect that Hoeg protagonists will have practically superhuman abilities, to stay awake not eating for a week, to get shot and act like it's nothing, etc. But the reader doesn't have that kind of stamina. The reader wants to be able to figure out how close we are to the climax. You can't in this book because it's all climax. Oh, also I kind of have a beef with authors (I'm looking at like half the winners of the Booker prize here. For some reason the Booker committee is super into this.) who have long descriptions of musical pieces. I can really dig the acoustic and musical stuff in this book but at a certain point I can only read so much description of something that I can't hear. Even if it's about a particular piece of music and I know that piece, there's no way to match up the description with which part of the piece they may be talking about. If music plays such a huge role in your story, maybe you should consider screen writing. I wasn't dismayed when my boyfriend, not a big reader, borrowed this book because he found the writing really interesting (he was totally thrown off by the shaky plot and weird timeline and will probably never borrow another book from me), but I would strongly urge people to try a different one of the author's books.
