    My opinion about all the books writen by Scott Bakker :

    1) the books are dificult to read. the english is not outstanding, but the sentense construction is unnecessarilly made complex. Most of the sentenses are broken with innumerous commas and punctuations.
    2) World building is too vague. A reader needs to have exemplary imagination to understand the topography.
    3) war scenes are too brief. A reader loses interest, instead of having that "edge of the seat" excitement feeling while reading the book.
    4)Resemblance to previous context is missing. for example: - Even though scarlet spires is the most powerful school in the three seas, they were wiped off like a bunch of rabbits. what a laugh. LOL

    In all a very disappointing experience. Thank god, I didnt buy the books but read the books online for free.

    Cheated

    I really enjoyed the first two books of this series. The third book left me feeling cheated at the end. Bakker left many questions unanswered and the last 100 pages of the book was a glossary. The Thousand Fold Thought was glossed over and almost never mentioned. There was plenty of material to write a four book, but Bakker decided to end it by completely leaving out what will happen with the Consult or the Dunyan. The conclusion of the series left me wishing I had never picked up one of his books.

    Decent ending to the Prince of Nothing Series

    While continuing to drag in parts like the rest of this series, the Thousandfold Thought provides some interesting plot twists involving the major players in the Holy War. My only major grievance was with the ending, which seemed a bit contrived. However, if you enjoyed the other books in this series, this is a must read.

    I Also Recommend:

    Better than most

    I liked the book (and the series), but felt that for all the characterization that the characters actually were/became flat. A great beginning, then he peaked and just rode it out; truthfully it got dull and I am anxious for it to end. I'm 100 pgs away and I'm bored with it.

    Too much sex for me also - hey a little smut is great, but enough is enough. If the abuse and rape is so pivital to the story, then I'll read something else. Besides that, all this humping is happening on the march for the most part, so you know everyone stinks of butt, armpits and snatch. It's overdone and every bad guy popping a woody every time they smell blood gets lame.

    Last complaint - to me it was a cross of The Lord of the Rings and Dune. Both the originals were done better. The names and the history just scream LOTR, and I expected any minute for someone to slip and call Kellus "Maud'dib". On second thought, what a great pair to splice!

    Whatever, it's still a good set of books and 100x's better than the vast majority of the crap we have to read. Buy it, it's worth it.

    Last thought - Paul would kick Kellus's butt (I keep picturing David Carradine playing Kung Fu while I read this - yea, I'm old)

    Greatend to a fantastic trilogy

    Culmination of a great first series. Bakker's first effort is comparable to Stephen R Donaldson's first chronicles of Thomas Covenant. Like Donaldson's chronicles there is a little redundancy at times, with certain themes revisited too many times (as if to beat the point home). That said, the characters are very engaging and the world they live in is fascinating. The appendix alone is worth the price of the book (left me drooling for his next series). Bakker's philosophical studies are evident in his complex and thoughtful writing style. This is not your run of the mill fantasy series full of good/bad knights and all powerful magicians who never use their powers. This is the kind of book that sets its own path along the fantasy genre (one that hopefully will inspire new writers and reinspire current, formulaic ones). I eagerly await future releases from Mr. Bakker, because if this is his introduction to writing, then the sky is his limit.

    Genius

    Simply genius. The best of the three. Not merely a fantasy, but literature. And not merely a book put together by a writer, but by an author.
