Day 2 of First Read through of Magician By Raymond E Feist
A read through , why is a read through on a tech blog your asking .. well , people keep telling me to write things down when i am reading books to fully enjoy them and whats better then wiriting down so the whole world can enjoy and troll 🙂
First and foremost … A DRAGON .. A Dragon !!!. Just as i thought this book was going to slow down a little bit , Mr Feist throws a huge fire breathing spanner in the works .. Sure, The part is only small and well, From what i have read so far, not that important.. It caught me completely off guard. What’s up with the gold Armour and sword .. are they spoused to be the equivalent of the Armour frodo gets from the elves or is it just a throw away plot piece that we will not hear about , honestly , i am always happy to read about the history of ancient Armour with special qualities.
Other then the Dragon, we also had a nice encounter with a wraith and some dark brotherhood.
My only pet peeve is that the lore is very very similar to the usual High fantasy setting where elves are majestic beings that live in forest and live to a million and dwarfs are short, fat, live in caves and live to 1/2 million while the “humans” are the plague of the world and live to a ripe age of 60 (if they don’t get eating by a dragon or some goblins before hand) . Hopefully the whole other dimensions section of the story will break apart that stereotypes.
Anyway , back to Uni work … bah who am i kidding, back to Reading 🙂
