"Strong Series I Can T "
series I can t to see where the author takes this in the future Gentleman Bastard Seuence 1 The Lies of Locke Lamora A good solid 35 stars2 Red Seas Under Red Skies A thieving 4 stars3 The Republic of Thieves A poisonous 45 stars ive said it once and i will say it again locke and jean could rob me of all im worth and i would literally get down on my knees and thank them for the honour they are the most deceptively clever nticingly cunning and gentlemanly bastards i have A Vineyard Christmas ever read and i cant getnough of them you guys this story does not suffer from a sopho slump its a brand new adventure thats luring nautical and full of scoundrels its masterfully chaotic so many subplots so many characters yay for women so much world building theres never a dull momentits intricately woven no movement no scene no word is insignificant Een Bijzondere Vorm Van Osteosclerose everything is so interconnected on so many levels its darkly humorous oh my gosh the banter the jokes the uips the characters are so well written and their interactions are always memorableim not going to lie im a little worried about how things are going to go in the next book i guess i just have to pick it up and see what happens next 45 stars Buddy read with these thieves Celeste Sarah455 StarsContrary to the popular opinion that Red Seas Under Red Skies the second book in the Gentleman Bastard Seuence series is weaker than its predecessor I m inclined to say that it s not inferior nor superior but it sually great with The Lies of Locke Lamora in a different way It retained some lements that made the first book rose to its fame and at the same time replace some of them with some new factors to the series I do however njoyed reading the first book Difficult and impossible are cousins often mistaken for one another with very little in common Two years after the nd of the first book we continue straight off with The Gentleman Bastard trying to again pull off another biggest heist they ver attempted The plot started with Locke Jean camouflaging as professional gamblers in an opulent casino named Sinspire xecuting one of the necessary steps for their heist However again the heist gets so much complicated than what they plannedThe whole setting of the book took place in a completely different place than its predecessor this time taking place in the island city of Tal Verrar and the Sea of Brass Although I miss the city of Camorr for its beauty and resemblance with Venice I do think that Tal Verrar and Sea of Brass gave the necessary new atmosphere to the book and series as a wholePicture Tal VerrarThe ntire narrative is still told in the same storytelling method as the previous book by shifting between present and past time frame The past sections this time are called Reminiscent and it s there to bridge the 2 years gap before the beginning of the book These past sections are there only for the first half of the book it s different from the previous book where it lasted from the beginning up to the Math Basics 6 end and honestly speaking I prefer it to last all the way since it worked so well before However thentire Reminiscent sections Voyage to the Underworld (Star Wars Missions, explored how Locke deals with the aftermath of Camorr and how he ll set up their plan for the biggest heist of their career which remained captivating as alwaysThe mostnthralling part of the book for me will have to be the uestions How the hell will they get out of this situation How will they The First Ghost execute their schemes that were present through thentire plot line It s ingenious how Scott Lynch implemented the lies heist all the moving parts and schemes after schemes filled with humorous crude yet louent dialogues which I can t ver seem to get Simple Numbers, Straight Talk, Big Profits!: 4 Keys to Unlock Your Business Potential enough of Any man can far. Of all the Sinspire the mostxclusive and heavily guarded gambling house in the world Its nine floors attract the wealthiest clientele and to rise to the top one must impress with good credit amusing behavior and xcruciatingly impeccable play For there is one cardinal rule nforced by Reuin the house's cold blooded master it is death to cheat at any game at the SinspireBrazenly undeterred Locke and Jean have orchestrated an Humanism elaborate plan to lie. T in a closed room and say that he commands the wind Imagine what Kvothe the Arcane would say to that Locke would probably fart and said he knows The Name of the Wind if theyver metAll the parts I discussed just now are or less the same as the greatness we received in The Lies of Locke Lamora and so come up the uestion what makes this book so different from its predecessor Pirates the last half of the book took on a completely different atmosphere with its seafaring piracy and naval warfare Don t get me wrong despite being on a ship most of the time there are still a lot of lies and schemes going on and I admit I m not too fond of being in the sea too long since there s nothing to look at in the world building during this duration other than you know the sea However Scott Lynch managed to make it so fun to read with the never Smokin' Hot ending problems that arise the longer the Gentleman Bastards are there Plus the amount and uality of the actions piece in this book are superior to the previous book in my opinion Thrilling actions during the naval warfare and great climax scenes are all there and they in my opinion killed the boredom that should ve been caused by the setting completelyPicture Locke Lamora in Red Seas Under Red Skies Chinesedition coverNow let s talk about the best part of the book the characters With the second book finished let s just say Locke and Jean has become one of my favorite book duobromance of all time Their friendship loyalty banter is without a doubt the best part of the book or maybe the series itself for me Placing Memory even than the schemes and heists Their banter and interaction completely give life to the bookWhether it s the humorous interactions Worst of all the inner vault is guarded by a live dragon attended by fifty naked women armed with poisoned spearsach of them sworn to die in Reuin s service All redheads You re just making that up Jean Or the heartwarming one I want to hug you And I want to tear your gods damned head off Both at onceAh near as I can tell that s the definition of family right there The Gentleman Bastards aside all the other characters are replaced with a completely new cast of characters This doesn t mean that the new characters are poorly written though Zamira Drakasha and Ezri Delmastro are both a fantastic addition to the story with them being the strong and compelling female characters which the first book don t really haveOverall Red Seas Under Red Skies once again proved Scott Lynch s capability in writing a great book with uniue high fantasy story compelling main characters and beautiful settings It s another must have addition to the Gentleman Bastard seuence and in my opinion Lasombra eually great with the first book I know it s been almost 10 years since the release of this book but hey better late than never right So chop chop for those of you who haven t started yet time to read this seriesI highly recommend this to anyone who s looking for a uniue high fantasy full of swashbuckling friendship hilarious and captivating dialogues heart wrenching and thrilling moments yet at the same time remaining highly fun andnjoyable to read 475 stars Finally the pirate book I ve been craving This is basically Ocean s 11 meets Pirates of the Caribbean After reading a Tumblr post Where Lynch responded to a reader s complaints about political correctness in this novel I am intriguedWhy shouldn t middle aged mothers get a wish fulfillment character you sad little bigot Everyone lse does HL Mencken once wrote that Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands hoist the black flag and begin slitting throats I can t think of anyone to whom that applies than my own mom and the mothers on my friends list with the incredible demands on time and spirit they face in their fforts to raise their kids preserve their families and save their own identitysanity into the bargain Shit yes Zamira Drakasha leaping across the gap between burning ships with twin sabers in hand to kick in some fucking heads and sail off into the sunset with her toddlers in her arms and a hold full of plundered goods is a wish fulfillment fantasy from hell I offer her up on a silver platter with a fucking bow on top I hope she amuses and delights In my fictional world opportunities for butt kicking do not cease merely because one isn t a beautiful teenager or a muscle wrapped font of testosterone In my fictional universe the main characters are a fat ugly guy and a skinny forgettable guy with a supporting cast that includes SBF 41 nonsmoker 2 children buccaneer of no fixed abode seeks unescorted merchant for light boarding heavy plunder You don I ll be honest when I first read this book years ago my reaction was kinda meh Or rather I remember it being that way It was a Long Time Back And I Can Barely Bring To Mind time back and I can barely bring to mind I ate for lunch yesterday So I m not terribly reliable that way I also vaguely remember that it wasn t as talked up as Lies of Locke Lamora There wasn t the same excited buzz about it when it came out buzz about it when it came out I remember feeling reasonably justified in my meh feeling That means reading through it again a second time was an interesting Wanton Nights experience Because now I have passed through the fiery hell that is Publishing The Second Book Don t get me wrong first books are hardspecially in secondary world fantasy You have to introduce an While My Soldier Serves entire world You re constantly walking the knifedge between boring people by xplaining too much and confusing them by xplaining too little But on the plus side in a first book or movie for that matter ಪರಿಸರದ ಕತೆ Parisarada Kathe everything has the benefit of being shiny and new Every revelation is fresh andxciting Every character is a mystery unfurling That s not the case in a second book In a second book you still have that problem PLUS you have the problem that some of your readers read the first book two days ago and some of them read it two years ago Some of them haven t read it at allOn top of that a lot of people want nothing than for you to write your first book over again because that s what they know and love But you can t do that because you only get one beginning When you write the second book in a series the honeymoon is over Now you re in a whole different type of relationship And love is harder to maintain than infatuation That s why in my opinion shifting gears from first book to second book is THE most difficult part of being a new writer Given all of this I can see why people in general and me in specific might have been a little meh on this book We were all butterflies in tummy tingly after reading Lies of Locke Lamora We loved it and we wanted to see the same thing again Which I now realize is silly I don t think I knew that then I mention all of this because this second time through I found myself wondering what my problem was the first time Because honestly the book is good We get to The Fiend Next Door explore a cool new piece of the world There are characters that I know and love being very true to themselves while still growing and changing and coming into conflict withach other and the world There is wonderful craft Here And Brilliant Dialogue And brilliant dialogue before Wit and humor both It s true that this book might be a little less Ocean s Eleven and a little Grifters But that s okay Because seuels need to change and grow a bit otherwise a series stagnates and dies And this book made me cry a bit which the first one didn t So that s a mark in its favor Soyeah Simply said I really njoyed it Did I njoy it as much as Lies No But not பொன்னியின் செல்வன் - புது வெள்ளம் every book can be on your top ten list Did Seas suffer from a bit of a sopho slump Yeah A bit But you won t find me bitching because the only thing I could say was something along the lines of O Woe is me I wasxpecting pure untrammeled brilliance and all I got was mere shining The Return of the Carter Boys: The Carter Boys 2 excellence Also they didn t have any loganberry cream cheese at the caf this morning so I had to have blueberry instead Alas I shall now weep and write poetry in my journal Yeah I don t want to be that person Nobody wants to be that personThat said thending leaves you hanging So I m really fucking glad the next book is out Speaking of which I think I m going to wander over to the bookstore and buy a copy of that right now. Trick and swindle their way up the nine floors straight to Reuin's teeming vault Under the cloak of false identities they meticulously make their climb until they are closer to the spoils than A Meditation on Murder everBut someone in Tal Verrar has uncovered the duo's secret Someone from their past who hasvery intention of making the impudent criminals pay for their sins Now it will take very ounce of cunning to save their mercenary souls And ven that may not be nou.
