Book Review: Empire of Ivory

Damn, but that is a good book. A different style than most of the other ones, with a lot more investment in characters than in actions, but very good nonetheless. Highly recommended.

Finished it in one sitting, and already want more, but that would be out in 2008 :-(

Does it make sense to read book 4 without reading the first three?

You are not human. :)

How many pages is that? You only read for 7 hours and you're done?

About 400 or so, and yes that was about the right amount of time.

I do much better in Hebrew, though.

I dunno--I think this book isn't as good as the last three--it could have been edited better. The first three books have great dialog and and an engaging plot--in this book, the british dialog is forced, there are paragraphs that only describe landscapes, and I'm sorry, the whole mushroom thing just doesn't make for a classic heroic tale.

JR,

No, but I think that it is a great setup for what comes next.
