Has anyone read The Gypsy by Steven Brust and Meghan Lindholm? And were you as impressed as I am?

Okay, so the story was pretty confusing and I never fully understood it. But the writing? Amazing.

There were several passages that I just had to read over and over again to satistfy my senses. All the descriptions were textured and flavorful, it was invigorating to read them.

I don't know, but there was just something about the way that book was written that just impressed me so much, and that's strange because I barely understood the story. :roll:

To make a long story short, I would recommend this book to people who (a) read a LOT of books (If you only read two fantasy novels a year, I wouldn't risk reading this one and not liking it) or (b) write a lot (I'm sure all of us could learn a few things from Mr. Brust and Ms. Lindholm :oops: ).


PS: If anyone has read Robin Hobb's Farseer, Liveship Traders, or Tawny Man trilogies, well. . . Meghan Lindholm is another of Hobb's pennames.
