Re: Favorite Character Poll
Well, I it was nice to read a book where the characters had more real characteristics. How many books have you read where the main character was almost "superhuman" and had no emotions when it came to love or death. I think that Hobb did a fantastic job, and what some people think of as whiny I think was justified. Even losing an animal he was bonded to at such a young age would have long lasting mental effects which showed through. And the loss of Molly because of his forced sense of duty.
Fitz himself almost died a number of times but that didnt stop him from caring and doing everything he could to help those he cared about. I am only one person but Hobb is one of the elite writers of the time in my opinion.
