My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Abercrombie’s prose is truly elegant. Though, ironically, the content is quite coarse, with regard to language and situations. The plot is decent, but its Abercrombie’s authorial voice that has me sucked in. Each character feels entirely unique, and he has quite a talent for metaphor and painting vivid word-images. Im only about 15% in, but really enjoying the experience.
