This week’s book recommendation is Robin Hobb’s : Assassin’s Apprentice!
It’s got everything: fantasy, intrigue, wolves, fools and assassins! If one of those words doesn’t make you want to run out and go read the book- don’t worry, I understand. Trying a new author is always a bit of a mission but if you have any sort of regard for fantasy novels then you need to read this book. It was the first book of Robins that I read and she is now one of my absolute FAVOURITE authors. She is a brilliant author and completely original in her ideas.
I must warn you that most of her books are quite thick and they will challenge you to continue reading past the first page but the language she uses is not at all pretentious and once you’re hooked- there is NO going back. If you like big stone castles and the conspiracies of court, magic, and epic adventures.. this is the book for you! If you’re still sitting there and you’re still not won over by my feeble attempt to convince you to read this book then you’re a lost cause. To all the fantasy lovers out there: this book will CHANGE YOUR LIFE! Ok, maybe that’s a little bit over the top- but it is just THAT GOOD!
Happy reading people, oh and if any of you have read the book in question feel free to post your opinions! All comments are welcome!
