The Folding Knife Spoiler Free Book Club Review

Just a reminder, this is not a thread for discussion. It is meant to be a reference for people who have not yet read the book. They can come and read this to see what our book club thought of The Folding Knife by K. J. Parker without fear of spoilers. They can then see if they want to add it to their TBR list.

Surprisingly I enjoyed The Folding Knife much more then I thought I would as I've previously read Sharpes and unfortunately it wasn't for me

Really enjoyed this one. Very different from any other book I can think of. Fun, thought provoking, interesting novel. Had some great discussions on it this month. Would definitely recommend it.
