Logen Ninefingers and the rest (spoiler alert)
Did anyone else feel that The First Law Trilogy by Joe Abercrombie felt as though it left many questions unanswered and very much open to other ways of following up on the main characters? Even slightly disappointed?
Inquistor Glokta, Jezal dan Luthar, Logen Ninefingers, The Dogman, and Ferro Maljinn all feel as though they have more to give - I think this shows the strength of Abercrombie's writing and how he draws you into the characters. Nevertheless I still felt as though the ending was maybe a bit rushed and left me wondering about what was going to happen next rather than really tying things up.
How the book ends with Logen jumping in the river is how the first book began which was quite cool but is he alive or dead?
Slightly dissapointed that Abercrombie didn't delve into Logen's split personality - was there a reasoning behind how The Bloody Nine came into being? I was hoping for an explanation but didn't really pick up on one.
I have Best Served Cold waiting on the book shelf but from the back cover it seems entirely new characters so not sure if there's any mention of the old ones?
