Re: slow starts? I remember being bored for the beginnings of the Hobbit, Fellowship of the Ring, and the Two Towers, and then equally as bored at the end of Return of the King, to the point that I never actually finished reading it.  I may pick it up again, since I have a lot more patience, and would like to analyze the books in a more writerly sense.

It's been a while, but I think the first Ian Irvine book that I read started really slow, too, but I kept reading in hopes it got better.  The pace picked up, but I honestly could not care about any of the characters or plot arcs, so I never finished the series.

For me, The Name of the Wind did not start slow, at least not a bad kind of slow.  I may be biased because I enjoy his writing style a lot, all the more since when I picked it up, I noticed that our sentence structures and prose were similar.  Heh.  Definitely biased.  I need to finish reading that.
