(no subject)

I finished Steven Erikson's Toll the Hounds yesterday.  It was, in many respects, a difficult read.  But I'm not entirely sure why I had such a rough time with it.  Like all of his novels, it's big and sprawling and complex, with lots of POV shifts, but that hasn't slowed me down in the past as it did with this one.

Since no one else who reads this is a fan of the series (to my knowledge), there's not much else I can say about it, except that even with the rough going, it's still the best ongoing fantasy series published today.  I know that's not much in the way of a review or a substantial endorsement, but there ya have it.
