Emperor of thorns
« on: November 10, 2013, 09:05:13 PM »
So i write this blog just after finishing book 3 of Marks Lawrences trilogy.. Ice never wrote a blog before but felt this book deserved it.

I have enjoyed all three books each one more than the last. Ive read a few fantasy authors like peter brett myke cole and brent weeks. They are all great writers but mark lawrence keeps me interested from the moment i open the book.

The ending of this book left me abit gutted at first until i read the after thought wrote by mark to us readers and it made me happy. The thing i have found unique about mark is he  is a normal bloke who is just as much a fan as the rest of us and the fact that he writes to the reader explaining why he chose to end the book the way he did speaks volumes. He is an author that if u havent read before you need to buy the books now amd you will see why i think so highly of him and if you are a fan already hopefully i am doing him justice.

Jorg of ancrath was a character that was neither good nor evil and i ended up really liking him and understanding why he made such decisions.

Lastly i wanted to say that i hope mark lawrence gets the recognition he deserves in the future and i hope he carries on writing books for everyone to enjoy. I didnt want to spoil the book by writing what happens and ruining it for others all i will say is get reading it asap you wont be disappointed

He's now one of my fave authors. The writing hooks me from the first page, great prose, and Jorg is a great character. Love the Brothers too. World building (or rebuilding I guess) is fantastic too.

These days I don't do rereads, as there's always too much new stuff to read, but I'm pretty sure I'll reread these. It'll be great to binge on them one after the other. Also liked the ending. It was the best ending possible, but not at all predictable (though I always knew who the last Brother standing would be). Looking forward to whatever Mark writes next.

Thanks! Re-reads are always a huge compliment.
