  1. In Topic: Abyss is WILLING very very WILLING

    Back in from the cold now a new book is out Posted Image

    Honestly I really think The God is not Willing is SE at the absolute height of his powers - a real treat. I see this as one of his finest books, using all his skills from all his previous writing. While the Kharkanas books are going for a VERY different style, that may not be for everyone (if sales figures are to be believed), this is more in the style of the main ten. He effortlessly includes all the things that make his writing so unique, and fascinating:
    • Revealing enough background to colour the world, but also leaving enough for your imagination, and wanting more
    • Extreme empathy generator - pleas for compassion
    • Deep characterization with passages where every word is well chosen, characters that are complex, and make you care about in all sorts of ways
    • The driest of wit, with laugh out loud moments
    • Visceral action on small and large scales, that has real consequences to the characters that we care about
    • A stunning convergence that makes you want to read the whole final quarter of the book in one sitting

    I haven't read any Malazan for a few years, but I kept up with some of the (more frequent) interviews SE has given, and stuff like the TVBB podcast. But my big take away is how much the books stand up to a more literary analysis, and how much they give the reader on re-reads etc. This one is a real treat for all Malaz fans...
