About the Author: Robin Hobb

I am shocked to find that some people think a 2 star I liked it rating is a bad rating What I liked it I LIKED it That means I read the whole thing, to the last page, in spite of my life raining comets on me It s a good book that survives the reading process with me If a book is so so, it ends up under the bed somewhere, or maybe under a stinky judo bag in the back of the van So a 2 st I am shocked to find that some people think a 2 star I liked it rating is a bad rating What I liked it I LIKED it That means I read the whole thing, to the last page, in spite of my life raining comets on me It s a good book that survives the reading process with me If a book is so so, it ends up under the bed somewhere, or maybe under a stinky judo bag in the back of the van So a 2 star from me means,yes, I liked the book, and I d loan it to a friend and it went everywhere in my jacket pocket or purse until I finished it A 3 star means that I ve ignored friends to finish it and my sink is full of dirty dishes A 4 star means I m probably in trouble with my editor for missing a deadline because I was reading this book But I want you to knowI don t finish books I don t like There s too many good ones out there waiting to be found.Robin Hobb is the author of three well received fantasy trilogies The Farseer Trilogy Assassin s Apprentice, Royal Assassin, and Assassin s Quest , The Liveship Traders Trilogy Ship of Magic, Mad Ship and Ship of Destiny and the Tawny Man Trilogy Fool s Errand, Golden Fool, and Fool s Fate Her current work in progress is entitled Shaman s Crossing Robin Hobb lives and works in Tacoma, Washington, and has been a professional writer for over 30 years.In addition to writing, her interests include gardening, mushrooming, and beachcombing She and her husband Fred have three grown children and one teenager, and three grand children.She also writes as Megan Lindholm, and works under that name have been finalists for the Hugo award, the Nebula Award, and the Endeavor award She has twice won an Isaac Asimov s Science Fiction Readers Award

    I haven t read a lot of fantasy in the last decade, so the fact I ve read 12 of Robin Hobb s books in the last 5 years says a lot about how much I enjoy reading her work The adventures of Fitz through three trilogies account for a big chunk of that reading.Robin Hobb can write a first person story with rare skill She shows you a world though Fitz s eyes and makes it matter, makes it vital Some elements of Hobb s fantasy are fairly old school, but written with a modern style and a literary ski I haven t read a lot of fantasy in the last decade, so the fact I ve read 12 of Robin Hobb s books in the last 5 years says a lot about how much I enjoy reading her work The adventures of Fitz through three trilogies account for a big chunk of that reading.Robin Hobb can write a first person story with rare skill She shows you a world though Fitz s eyes and makes it matter, makes it vital Some elements of Hobb s fantasy are fairly old school, but written with a modern style and a literary skill that one almost never used to see in fantasy and is still hard to find in the genre.What Hobb does best, quite possibly better than every other fantasy writer, is build, develop, and breathe life into relationships She writes great characters that you can be...

    I find a lot of fantasy authors are in love with the internalized conceptions of their worlds This can lead to great nuanced detail supporting imaginative storytelling but the flipside can be a creation that fails to translate that vision to the actual page, to the audience Assassin s Apprentice illustrates this point fairly well Robin Hobb has clearly lovingly created the world of the Six Duchies, and this love is echoed through the tale s device born a bastard son to the king s heir, Fit I find a lot of fantasy authors are in love with the internalized conceptions of their worlds This can lead to great nuanced detail supporting imaginative storytelling but the flipside can be a creation that fails to translate that vision to the actual page, to the audience Assassin s Apprentice illustrates this point fairly well Robin Hobb has clearly lovingly created the world of the Six Duchies, and this love is echoed through the tale s device born a bastard son to the king s heir, Fitz recalls growing up i...
