We Won't Get Fooled Again

Advantages: It's got the Witches in it
Disadvantages: It's the last one.

Having committed to re-read the whole collection in honour of the author there is an argument for saying I should have held off this one, saved it until the end… especially as it had leaked that one of the ends in the book is that of my favourite characte ...

Disadvantages: The mystic stuff which annoyed me

I have long been obsessed with Robin Hobb, even to the point where the boyfriend has come to the conclusion that he is fighting a bedroom war with her. This is a slight overstatement I have to make clear! But when word of a new trilogy hit me an awful lot ...
