    Not worth the money

    Obsessed with weird sex, unsympathetic characters, no resolution.

    Great book

    I thought this book was great. There was a few times i had to look words up for their meaning. Its grand in its scale. People use magic sparingly, even though its immensely powerful. Characters are killed or maimed at the drop of a hat. Its vaguely Christains vs Muslims or east vs west - anyway gotta go

    Poetically Philosophical

    If you have ever idulged an opem soul, or tasted the fruits of the occult's passionate truth, then you'll feel for these books. Thousands of praises to R. Scott Bakker!

    Good, but a little drawn out

    Somewhat repetative at times but otherwise another good effort by Bakker. Character and plot development continues to be strong. It's Bakker's writing style however, that makes this book extremely enjoyable. Read on, as the best is yet to come in book three...

    Great Fantasy Mired In the Telling

    I'll start by saying that the telling of The Warrior-Prophet is far from an impossible read and is sometimes as good as book one, but never better. It's never unintelligent but sometimes isn't very smart. I found the first novel compelling throughout. This behemoth was sometimes more of a burden. The language is verbose, convoluted and sometimes redundant. I found myself often skipping narrative but never lost site of the tale. At times, characters fell into cliché caricatures. Bakker hasn't written women as well here as in book one either. Other fantasy material is recycled in this story to distracting similarities. Clearly parallels with today's religious quarrels are present in the series but the namesake character, the Warrior-Prophet himself, mirrors the Christ myth to comical proportions. It's unnecessary. I think we could have understood those parallels without that. I also winced through unoriginal concepts and sometimes lost site of the narrator. In the first novel, narration and perspective would change from character to character, effectively. Here narration would switch and sometimes appear to have switched but didn't to frustrating effect. In this book two, Mr. Bakker didn't loose vision and direction for the story and it remains interesting. It's simply mired down with the effort of telling. I have to say I still, overall, enjoyed this second book in The Prince of Nothing Series and I am quite compelled to finish his epic story in book 3. I certainly hope Mr. Bakker regained his footing in book 3 and either makes his overt similarities to the Christ story relevant or eloquently distances himself from it. I certainly hope book 3 has lost the verbose narrative present here.

    against familiar grain...a thought pool for reflection

    A great, challenging read ... full of philospophical introspection and poignant relevance to every human being's passage, existence. Often it's said that an author's 'bent' can be found within his work-- I await a conclusion on my considerations of Bakker -although I think I've pegged it already. I like his ideas of the complexities of faith, how humility and compassion are a key consideration. Who will his protagonists be, in the end? Will there be room for some of the (now) 'darker' characters to aid the 'cause' for life? I hope so --then there's hope for us all, right? Any author whose (apparent) protagonists are not perfect -at least by this world's standards- grants hope to anyone out there who, as Akka, (or Esmi) has already been -by their world's measure- discounted; branded, by some means, 'dammned.'

    WOW

    The first book was really good. This one is better. There is more action than the first book, and a continuation of amazing dialogue. The standout character is Kellhus. Before I picked up this series I couldn¿t have imagined a character like him. The way Bakker writes him never ceases to amaze me. He puts him on an intellectual plain that is fun to look through. Overall, this book is great because it does what so few fantasy writers Ive read have been able to do: create a detailed, complex world that is easy grasped AND write in a sophisticated, epic tone. Erikson comes close, but personally I get lost in his stuff (his world is SO complex), and Jordan and Martin have created great worlds but their actual writing can get a little boring. Bakker has none of these problems. His world is understood as it is explained through the course of the book, and the 'epicness' of the story gives me goose bumps, especially during the last battle of Warrior Prophet. So yes, I liked the book. Read the first one first though. And a warning: if you like fantasy with powerful and strong females, this may not be the book for you, as Bakker takes a medieval view on their role in his world (i.e. the two main female characters are a concubine and a harlot). I'll shut up now so you can start reading.

    A classic.

    As good as Steven Eriksons work. Make sure you read the first book. Complicated, yet it will draw you in quickly and hold you till its over. Waiting for the next.
