It's definitely not as good as Wizard's First Rule, but I think it shows more promise in the direction that it can go. THE LIVESHIP TRADERS and THE TAWNY MAN trilogies both tie into THE FARSEER I hear. So I can't wait to see how that works out.

So, how about we go do some Forging!?

I am absolutely enjoying this farseer trilogy. Royal Assassin is simply amazing. i have no idea where its going to go!! its so engrossing. matters of the court are just so interesting. i should have taking a class about medieval court life in college. but my minor was classical studies. snowman have u ever seen the show the tudors?? i think its really good, i especially love it because it gives some idea of what ASOIAF would look like on celluloid. did i mention that royal assassin is awesome.

No fair, I was supposed to read Hobb first! Haha, you're surpassing me with those audio books which are read faster than I can read. I've only read the prologue so far. Fitz is pretty despondent. I haven't seen The Tudors, I'll check it out on sidereel.

I still get quite a bit of reading done, at the expense of not studying enough. I hope I can take some time off after college, that would be nice. Summer time is best though, because I don't do summer school. I'll probably have a Goodkind/Hobb marathon next summer. I just wonder how many books those authors will leave me by then.

Since you are doing the audio, can you tell me how to pronounce this: Outislanders.

I can't decide between these two: 1. out islanders 2. outis landers
