Ian Irvine has done it again. He’s written another very long book about a fantasy world that at first seems interesting. However, the plot is very unsatisfying, the names of things were dry, and the descriptions very unimaginative. Whatever cache his readable style of writing had has faded since the Geomancer days. The plot gets more and more disappointing, and the character development in this book is much worse than in the previous books. The names for the fictional towns and objects in this world are so booooring that even on a bad day I wonder at how he could have come up with these dry names “wisp watcher” “reaper” “gatherer” . Do not read. It will only disappoint. I wasn’t angry, just blah at the end. Everyone cool is worse off, as usual, especially the reader.
I read the Jacob Jensen Design Book, published by the Danske Kunstindustrimuseum
It was terrific.
Easy read. Nice philosophy.
