No me ha llenado del todo el final de esta trilogía. El final ha sido muy simplón, por no decir pésimo. La muerte de un personaje se toma como motivo para que todo quede atado y parece no importar mucho que muera. Después de su muerte, todo se soluciona de una forma rápida y que para mí, echa para atrás todo lo que se ha ido tejiendo durante los dos libros anteriores. De repente, los personajes maduran y todo por lo que han estado luchando durante tres libros y medio de repente parece no importarles y deciden apostar por nuevos objetivos.
Hay personajes que en un capítulo maduran lo que no han madurado en más de 1600 páginas.
Y no hablemos de la traducción de la novela... más erratas no puede haber, por no hablar del cambio de nombres en personajes importantes (lo de Dechado-Paragon ha sido de traca. Al leerlo, no sabía de quien estaban hablando hasta que busqué la traducción del nombre y me salió que significaba "dechado")
En fin, odio las series que terminan fastidiándose en los últimos capítulos del último libro.
L'ultimo libro della saga deiMercanti di Borgomago.
Tutti gli inrtecci si riannodano per una conclusione davvero sfavillante.
Bellissime le ultime due pagine perchè aprono un mondo di possibilità!!
"Take comfort in this, Amber. You are only one small, short-lived creature. You'd have to be a fool to think you could change the course of the whole world." She was silent until she broke out in a shaky laugh. "Oh, Paragon, in that you are more right than you know, my friend."...Continua
what an adventure!
the plot is complex, full of threads, the characters are so real! i was moved at their misfortune, i was deceived with them, i was able to both love and hate through them, i shared their dreams and was disappointed at their failures, i could enjoy their victories and felt that i was starting to build a new life together with them!
this is not the story of some blessed/chosen character who can achieve everything without effort: it is a story of creatures, both human and not, who struggle to find their own place in the world, who need to sacrifice a lot, to give up a lot, to face difficulties and failures, to persevere following their hearts and their convictions about what is right.
"right" has different faces: everybody in this book behaves as they think it's right; there's always a reason behind a bad action (the story of pirate Kennit, for example)
i found a lot of myself in Althea, the way she struggles to see that she gets what's hers by right and at the same time tries to be useful to the ones she loves. what she understands only in the end, is that it is not true that she is the only one to know exactly what the others need to do to be happy and fulfilled, and left on themselves they can become amazing people, with no more need of herself at all.
this was without any doubt one of the best reading i've done.
I did enjoy this series as a whole but the combination of the talking liveships plus the very obvious feministic writing style makes this a series I really can't highly recommend. Hobb is a great writer with superb story-telling skills. However, her characters in this series change so often in their decisions and even their speaking styles that I found parts of it totally bogus. It's still a fun read but better fantasy series are definitely out there including her Farseer Trilogy....Continua
