... a bit like reading a primary school story competition entry.,
This review is from: The Edge Of The World: Book 1 of Terra Incognita (Paperback)
This book is simply awful. I am staggered that Mr Anderson is an "International Bestseller" as the quality of writing is not very good at all. I spent several tedious hours trawling through this pointless and entirely uninspiring book in the futile hope that it would get better in a few chapters. It didn't.
The story is a mixture of the overtly ridiculous and the tediously inconsequential. I implore you not to buy this book.
It is a shame that you cannot give a rating of zero stars. If ever a book deserved such a rating it would be this.
If you are after excellent Fantasy then may i humbly suggest you spend your hard earned cash on authors with a talent in this genre. I would heartily recommend Steven Erikson (Malazan Book(s) of the fallen), George RR Martin (Song of Ice and Fire) and the tremendous Joe Abercrombie (The First Law), all of which are profoundly satisfying, exciting and entertaining.
