I was wondering whether to post here or on the other full trilogy thread, but then I saw that one wasn't supposed to have spoilers, so here I am.
I finished it last night, I had to, my hands wouldn't let go of the book. I feel angry and bereft, similar to when you're simply left alone. My brain hasn't returned to normal yet, it's still full of random thoughts (I could never write a proper book review that others feel useful, hehe).
I hate to write this, but I'm not sure about the end, I'm not sure if that last bit should have been left out. Then again, the Builders bit was always lower in my books' appreciation. I also didn't exactly like Jorg's transformation with his son (the 'stick for the world to beat him') - I sort of got it in a theoretical way, but I think only parents will understand.
That's it for my 'less positive' - the rest, oh the rest... Big spotlights shining over my life and making me think of stuff I'd rather not, drawing me into the light, back into all the crossroad moments. Quotes that will remain with me for a long long time everywhere. Life, and life again, every step of the way. Simply perfect.
And beautiful language - I've said this for Mark's every single book, and I say it again. Writing as art.
It will be a while until I read 'Prince of Fools', though. At the moment I feel he's occupying Jorg's space. Using Jorg's title (couldn't you have chosen a different title?). And being very very different from Jorg, from the bits and pieces I've read about it.
So no, not yet. I'll live with Jorg for a while longer.(and I'll probably regret the mushy/hand in my heart comments after a while )
