I do like it, though.
But I also think his characters are wonderful and the worlds he creates for them. His novels are never related but I always find myself wondering if these group of people or that country weren't also mentioned in a another of his books. I love how there are these tenuous weavings between his works. The term Wordsmith comes to mind when I think of Kay's works. I never heard of the word before the GD but Kay came to mind when I did.
OTOH, my brother doesn't like his books, can't get into the way Kay writes, and my MIL thinks there is too much violence in them. Neither of them have been able to finish any of his books.
Me, on the other hand, loves most of his books and tolerates the not so god stuff, too (for me that's the celtic stuff, as in Last light of the Sun & Ysabel, and, to some extent, Fionavar. But Fionavar has some other qualities, like the internal discourse on the high fantasy genre as such...).
*partially posting to bump thread back up* Clam, I'll also be starting the book (relatively) late. I have two I (feel I) should finish before starting something else and then the book I've been waiting for for months and months finally arrived and I want to pounce on it right now and I can't because I have those two other books left and then I can pounce on it and love it (I hope) and then I can get to A Song for Arbonne at last. But first I have to read those two books!
BTW this is my first group read so if this crossed the line into the spoiler thread please let me know.
I don't think she's read many other fantasy/scifi. I seem to remember she tried Tigana because my husband and I were raving about it so much. But for someone averse to violence, she sure does like her murder mysteries :oD
PS - It doesn't sound like you've crossed any lines there, but then again I've already read the book several times :o)
You do have a lot on your plate right now!
I've been watching this thread but most of my conversation has been on the spoiler one. There have been several interesting conversations but our pace has slowed...so, hurry up and finish...we need some fresh imput!
Sorry for the confusion!
p.s Trying for humour in thread (doesn't read that way to me though)
