I feel like the writing and grammar is too clunky and not very fluid. I'll agree with that, and add to it that it's more like if the bits before Rivendell, bloated as they were in LotR, would be further bloated by getting character portrayals - thoughts and feelings and bits of background - of Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli and Boromir before we meet them. Instead of gritty, it felt kind of like a teenager who swears a lot to try and sound like an adult: really forced and usually out of context.

If interested in the “why”, you can read my reviews of Naturally, my friends were aghast at my heretical dislike of Lord Grimdark. It's also not clear who the good guys and bad guys are -- kind of like real life. In early 2008 Joe Abercrombie was one of the contributors to the BBC Worlds of Fantasy series, alongside other contributors such as Michael Moorcock, Terry Pratchett and China Mieville.

I started reading Joe Abercrombie's debut novel immediately after finishing a very popular old 1970s classic post-Tolkien fantasy that had left me -- quite frankly -- bored. Jokoloyo wrote: "Just want to know your opinion, what is the role of the tournament for Jezal? " I really wasn't sure what it's significance would be apart from making a name for Jezal. In all honesty, it took me a while to get used to Abercrombie's writing style. Ninefingers, as ever, is in a fight for his life, but it is clear that this is neither his first fight nor his last.

    These two are such great characters; they make the series what it is. Yes, we see he has become what he is because of what has been done to him, even if to tell the truth we don't know that he was a good person before. During a break between jobs he began writing The Blade Itself in 2002, completing it in 2004.

    Sadly, what had to happen finally happened : I grew tired of them, and spent years avoiding them, until came along in February, and then I thought : FUCK YEAH. The sheer number of reviews on this will let me squeak on by with no synopsis of plot, or detailing of characters. But Bayaz has been in self imposed exile for centuries, and the Union finds itself under threat from the Warlord of the Northmen, as well as a new Emperor in Gurkhul to the south.

    So, while this book ends up pretty low in my rating, I probably will read the next one at some point. I love this series and think it is in the read again and again like Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones. Well, I can say this for it - it's not bleak and disheartening, unless you count being disheartned by being so underwhelmed by a book so lauded by so many people. Right along side by Patrick Rothfuss as the best debut Fantasy novels of the last few years.
