A while ago I read an article about the best fantasy novels that had yet to be made into films. The Blade Itself was up there behind Game of Thrones. Well Thrones went quite well and if anyone applies the right amount of funds and skill to put this on the big or small screen they might well have a winner.

I say might because the real appeal of the book is the characters and not a one of them has much in the way of positive virtues. Whether a man or woman they are often dark violent cruel unhinged stupid driven and indifferent. Sometimes all of the above. Joe Abercrombie's skill is to make them compelling, and by wrapping them in the folds of dark humour that pervade the story you cannot fail to love them. Maybe.

This is an epic that twists and turns, rushes up on you, twists you around and leaves you breathless. It's smart, horrific, endlessly inventive and cinematic in its vision. I absolutely loved it.

Joe Abercrombie is a stone cold genius.

Usually I go for books that focus on one character. This book tells the story's of many but i felt connected to all of them.
The ending has me glued when you finally see the bloody nine unleashed

The authors clear cut, no nonsense style of writing is refreshing. The plot is developing well and I am glad I have come to the trilogy after it has been completed so I can read the last two parts immediately.

Worth the read and very addictive. Joe created a vibrant and elegant world with new and innovative ideas on how to write a fantasy book.

Enjoyed the layout of the first hook, you feel invested in the characters and it lays out enough hints at a bigger over arching storyline
