Just finished Book 1.
Well, what can I say? It's a good book. True there's a little confusion in the start, but after that it gets better and in the end it was not a major problem.
I disliked A LOT the lots of super powered chars. Damn, that sucked. I don't mind some mages casting lightining strikes, fireballs here or there, killing some people and etc. But there's a limit and SE traspassed it..
Bout the chars, spoilers here watch out:
The moment Kruppe was introduce I thought 'I bet he is a extremely important and powerful man who is hiding under this aura of idiocy'... What a cliche! But an interesting char, anyway.
I liked Rake too, despite the fact of his super powers. A really tough god, isnt he? Hard as rock in delivering justice, but can show compassion when needed. Well, he was another cliche, but the type every good book must have.
From those Darujhistan guys I liked Nom and Murillio. The drunk noble and Crokus where really superficial, hope they never appear again. Nom I guess has yet a major role in the plot, and I'm looking forward to see what happens next with him.
From the Bridgeburners I liked Kalam and Quick Ben. I was not able to like Whiskeyjack. Dont know what, but something about him is really really boring. Maybe is his stupidity. 'Ah, they sent us to dig a tunnel under tons of snow and planned triggering a major magical battle just above our heads. But that doesnt mean they 're trying to get us killed'
Oh, c'mon! That was really stupid and made me hate Whiskeyjack!
Phew, that's it. Now I'll wait for my Deadhouse Gates to arrive. I ordered it with GotM and MoI at Amazon. The others two arrived together in the beggining of the month. But they keep postponing the delivery date of Deadhouse Gates. With some luck it will be delivered by the end of the year. :lol:
