I've read it twice, and I love this book, so I should be in for this month. Not sure how often we're supposed to post or anything, but I'd love to join the discussion.

No limits on posting here. :)  The thread to start talking about the book will go live Apirl 1st. :)  Here's a link to the book club rules to get an idea of how this all works. :)

This is much better - not quite a hooded man, but certainly a mysterious hatted man. Plus a George RR Martin recommendation on the front cover.  That sold it to me!

This is my favorite cover.

I am in; must get my hands on the book though.  Question, should I go with an e-book, or print book?  I am going back and forth.

I like this cover too, I have the ebook.  Which version you get depends on how much space you have on your bookshelves, maybe??   ;D

So true, so true!  With that in mind, then I think I ought to go with an e-book.   :D

I am very much excited about this book. I have been wanting to read it for a while and this looks like the best excuse to buy it!  ^_^  Thank you!

I think you have Pornokitsch to thank for our Lies of Locke Lamora love... He his Scott Lynch's first disciple and sees it as his duty to spread the word of Lynch far and wide. :D

He is doing a top job!maybe all the regular should become spokesmen for one writer. Pornokitsch for Lynch, overlord for Lawrence and Rothfuss, I guess I would be Martin (though could also do it for Gaiman, Pratchett or Abercrombie).

I'm still playing catch up with The Name of the Wind (loving it so far!) but will be reading this alongside in real time.

I think I'm going to sit this one out. I'm only just now finishing up The Blade Itself (2 chapters left), and I think I'm going to spend April reading the next 2 books in the series after it. I only have so much time to read, so I have to choose, and I want to know what happens after The Blade Itself. ^_^

That is an acceptable excuse! (Before They Are Hanged is my favorite of the series, too)
