Anyone else read Robin Hobb?

Halfway through the third book of Tawny Man trilogy. Read both the Farseer and Liveship Trader trilogies before this. Really had a slow start but now I'm fully involved and lament the number of books left to read is beginning to shrink. I don't want the stories to end.

I read the Farseer trilogy.. A royal bastard trained from prepubescence to be an assassin, spends much of his time in the stables tending to animals without killing anyone.. Found it boring.

[@622125,Thevy29] for being an assassin he does spend fairly little time assassinating

Long Long Long time ago... I had the opportunity to start reading the dutch translations of Robin Hobb who were all being released in hardcover OR the Shannara series by Terry Brooks. And I took Brooks. It was pretty good, but by now, I sometimes wonder if I didn't make the bad choise, considerings that Hobbs' books ussually get more praise from the fantasy community. I never read them.

[@421865,Kwek00] so far, some of the best dragon mythos I've read. I really like how they've done those. Does anything stop you from checking at a library or getting pdf versions?

[@657984,ViciDraco] Of course not... but you can only read so much man. Time is limited. And I'm not sure if you ever looked up how many books Terry Brooks wrote, but there are a lot that all deal with Shannara. I've read pretty much all of what was translated till my early 20s.

Shannara is beneath the "Song of Ice and Fire" and Harry Potter shelf at the bottom.

I've read all of Robin Hobb. Now I'm almost through book 10 of the Wheel of Time...
