  • Armies march on philosophy, not their stomachs

    The penultimate book in the Malazan Book of the Fallen series is a long read, without a surfeit of action, but if you've come this far, you're probably pretty good with that. There's a lot of pain and suffering in this story, and a lot of philosophy. The worn-down world the series is set in seems more worn down than ever before, and a strong sense of exhausted despair suffuses the narrative. But running through that is a golden gleam of determination to do what's right, no matter what the cost. More than ever, this book brought out the military nature of the series. A large part of the story was the story of armies, their leaders and their members. Much of it is about armies on the march. Battles, when they occur, are increasingly futile, but no less brutal. Slowly the major characters of the series are coming together for the climax. The gritty realism of the story, despite ancient zombies, dragons, hi-tech dinosaurs with their space ships, and undead seductresses, and so on, drags you into the world and keeps you thinking about it. That's not an easy thing, given the woes and suffering of almost all of the characters, so I've had to space out my reading of the books, not as a measure of their worthlessness, but rather as a measure of their potent impact. An effective lead-up to the climax of the series. I don't regret the many hours spent with the Bonehunters. I'm looking forward to the climax of this series.

    Significantly better than the travesty which was toll the hounds. Read it. Well worth suffering his lesser books to get to this point.
