the only problem i had with the book was the curse words uttered by gillam and stephen during a fight scene. i found it odd that the author would use contemporary 1990 curse words in a fantasy novel set in imaginary time. it didnt ring true and broke my concentration as i read.
this is truly a book that i could recommend to my children to read as it lacks the sex and x-rated language so prevelent today. i appreciate the fact that the author proves a good book can be written without those elements deemed "necessary" by so many today.
it was a good book and i recommend it highly.
I was unable to reach any rapport with the characters except possibly for Evayne, and her role mostly raises questions. All of the other characters are two-dimensional and indecipherable.
The book raises lots of questions it doesn't answer, particularly with regard to the Hunter/Huntbrother relationship and the customs and conventions of their homeland. Another major question mark is Evayne and her role. She promises to bring interest and empathy into the novel, but doesn't live up to that promise.
I do not recommend this book unless you want to fail to enjoy empathy with under-developed characters in a circular plot that goes nowhere and ends in a cliffhanger.
As I was reading the back of the book, I was thinking to myself, what a stupid idea. Who the hell cares about a bunch of dogs hunting!
I did however, still read the book and was suprised with what I found. I really like the the book! I even read it again, right after the first time I read it. The reason that I read it again was because of all the unanswered questions that I had from the first time. I was able to find some of the answers but hopefully the series is able to clear up a couple more.
