**Addition to the article, the Fitz and Fool Trilogy they mention is complete now.



In the World of the Elderlings books (that's the world Fitz is in), there are the three Fitz trilogies (chronological order: Farseer, Tawny Man, Fitz and Fool) and the Liveship Traders trilogy (same world, different culture and "magic" elements) which are must reads, IMO. There are some minor overlaps in events and timelines, and at least one major linkage [Amber, tee hee--I'm not sure at what point you find how she fits into all of the Fitz books]

And also the Rain Wild Chronicle, which I didn't think was quite as good as those 4 trilogies, though I read it enjoyably enough, and it does fill in some empty spots and ties in with some of the stuff in her last series.


My daughter, disagrees with the article and says to read them in the order Hobb wrote them. (Which is the order I read them in, because I read them as they came out, and waited eagerly for the next.) So the next trilogy you would read is the Liveship Traders, which will take you away from Fitz for a bit, but is worth it in its own right. I think one of the main characters in that trilogy was the most intriguingly developed one in all of her books...he's a fairly nasty self-absorbed sort who does things totally for his own benefit which turn out to be good for other people--they adore him and assign to him the best motives in the world. It's debatable whether he has a kind heart underneath and has been twisted by life, or whether he's just an out and out rotter.

So if you go with my daughter's recommendation, it would be:
Farseer, Liveship Traders, Tawny Man, Rain Wild Chronicles, and finally the Fitz and Fool series.

That may be it...at least the last book in the Fitz and Fool books (Assasin's Fate) seems to tie up loose ends from all of those series. And its ending made me cry, but not just because it was the end of the series.



Soldier Son is a different world...I wasn't that much in sympathy with the main character, but it had some good "magical" world development in it. Worth reading.
I may have to re-read all the books - have all of them. Hmm although the Rain Wild Chronicles may not(looking at the years - I may have slowed down reading by then)...will have to look through the boxes.

If able to without spoiling the book for TN - why no sympathy with main character. I do not recall how it ended anymore....but not sure he had choice?

When I looked at the years of these books can't believe it has been 25 years since the books....

melbrod Unsettled weather--Possible rain tomorrow changing to snow on through Thursday night. But not much chance and not much snow.

But see, SP, your day has to be better than ours (Except I like snow )

StrykersPerson Alright,

Got to hit the sack.

Night All!

Work is sucking the life out of me. Need to get recharged.

Everyone have a quality day tomorrow.

I am revisiting this because, it was MY idea! Where is my T-shirt? I think I specifically asked for a tank top.

Ma?

Sic him.

TN?

Better send me a Christmas present. Or else, I will file a patent lawsuit.

Can you all tell I have nothing better to do tonight?

StrykersPerson Okay, here is another get up challenge video.

That Dad is raising his girls right. And, he's got the beat! Which Mister doesn't. He wanted to know what the new CD that was mailed to me was about and I told him. He turned around and walked out of the room. He will be okay, though. He calls me a wackadoodle all the time.

I am serious about this challenge.

Kenny! Step up to the plate! You've already admitted on social media that you are a wackadoodle too!

Mister and I went to Walmart, whatever day it was. We were walking into the store and I told him about what you did to your wife. He told me he will just tell everyone that I am off my meds!

LMAO

Our Walmart doesn't play music like you described. I couldn't hear any music.

StrykersPerson Good Evening Peeps!

You all sure have doing a lot of talking about Chlamydia this evening...




Cuz!

Has anyone sent in their videos for your dance movie? Like a good Cuz I ordered and received my CD so I can practice my moves. Now, I've got to dig up a CD player. I know I have one around here somewhere, probably covered in dust and muddobber nests. Guess I could crank the stereo up in Guz and do it that way.

I will not be the only one doing this! If that is the case then you can't post my video!

Funny but not so funny story.

Are you going to have to shave her?

We haven't seen pics of your fish crew lately. Got time for that?

Good choice Kenny!

I like that song.

One question, though. Do you get down on one knee and hold your wife's hand and sing that song to her in Walmart?

Apparently browning clematis is common
