Note: the following is a special guest review courtesy of my lovely wife, Margaret. Margaret is an extremely fast and voracious reader who devours books in a weekend that would take me months to finish. After she polished off the highly-regarded Farseer Trilogy, I politely requested (and begged and pleaded) for her to write up her thoughts for my blog. So, please enjoy.
The Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb is an enjoyable trip into a fantasy realm which will likely keep you slogging along dutifully for all of its 1900 or so pages. While the pacing of the story is sometimes questionably slow, it is impactful and may have you continuing to think about the characters even after the series has ended.
