I like making quote icons ^^ If there's a quote from The First Law you want me to iconize, just ask away.

I finished reading Abercrombie's Last Argument of Kings last week, and been mulling over it a bit since then.

Overall a good book, and a great conclusion to the series, definitly on par with the quality of Before They Are Hanged. There were a few details on which the book was less strong, or which disapointed me, but he reading itself was delightful, and the series is definitly thought inducing.

First flaw is that compared to the shiny-prettiness of the previous covers (seriously, the things are gorgeous) LAoK was kinda ugly, and I really disliked the font, very overdone. Also, can't look at the title without chuckling remembering the lame pun from Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash, "they will hear Reason" ;p

Finished reading Before They Are Hanged, second book of The First Law trilogy by Joe Abercrombie. If I thought the first one was pretty good but wasn't entirely sold on the brillance of it, then picture me sold. This series is bloody awesome.

long review of the book )

It's 11 to 15. I still haven't finished what I had to. I'm just so tired.

On the plus side, look! I have new icons. Ain't they pretty? [ profile] iconsbycurtana made plenty of ASOIAF icons and they be great.

I finished reading The Blade Itself by Abercrombie. It is indeed very good. Great storytelling and character writing, cynical and wryly funny in the way I like. I reads strangely fresh given that it does have an awful lot of clichés. Must find tome 2 soon.
