Fool's Assassin - Robin Hobb Privatjokr http://www.privatjokr.com http://www.privatjokr.com/index.php/books/fool-s-assassin-robin-hobb 2014-07-11T00:40:00Z 2014-07-11T00:40:55Z Deprecated: Function create_function() is deprecated in /home/privatj/public_html/inc/_core/_url.funcs.php on line 761

FitzChivalry -- royal bastard and former king's assassin -- has left his life of intrigue behind. As far as the rest of the world knows, FitzChivalry Farseer is dead and buried. Masquerading as Tom Badgerlock and married to his childhood sweetheart, Molly, Fitz now leads the quiet life of a country squire.

Still, he remains haunted by the disappearance of the Fool, who did so much to shape Fitz into the man he has become. But such private hurts are put aside in the business of daily life -- until the appearance of menacing, pale-skinned strangers casts a sinister shadow over Fitz's past...and his future.

Now, to protect his new life, the former assassin must once again take up his old one...

Robin Hobb introduced us to FitzChivalry Farseer and the Fool nearly 20 years ago and they've been through a lot since then. If you haven't read the Farseer trilogy, where we first meet Fitz and the Fool, or the Tawny Man trilogy where their journey continues, you MAY start with this book; there is enough recap to bring you up to speed. If you have read any or all of the earlier 6 books, you are nostalgic for books read long ago and maybe a little grateful for the review since it has been so long.

I read the Farseer trilogy years ago and enjoyed the story and its characters. I have not yet read the Tawny Man trilogy, though I own it and plan to read it. Of another Hobb series, I made it through two books of her Rainwilds Chronicles. I neither enjoyed the story nor the characters. I commented after book 2 of that series that Robin Hobb is capable of so much more than this. And now she has proved me right.

Unabashedly, I loved this book. In nearly 700 pages, not much happens here, but I savored every word Ms. Hobb wrote. The details were subtle and deliberate and the book was beautifully written.

The elephant in the room is how obvious the book's big plot twist was to the readers, yet Fitz, uncharacteristically, was blind to it. It earned an emphatic, "Well, duh!" from me, but did not disrupt my overall enjoyment of the book.

Patrick Rothfuss - A Wise Man's FearNo man is brave that has never walked a hundred miles. If you want to know the truth of who you are, walk until not a person knows your name. Travel is the great leveler, the great teacher, bitter as medicine, crueler than mirror-glass. A long stretch of road will teach you more about yourself than a hundred years of quiet introspection.

300: Rise of an Empire Privatjokr http://www.privatjokr.com http://www.privatjokr.com/index.php/movies/2014/03/18/300-rise-of-an-empire 2014-03-18T12:00:00Z 2014-03-17T01:52:44Z Deprecated: Function create_function() is deprecated in /home/privatj/public_html/inc/_core/_url.funcs.php on line 761

I was happy to learn that this movie takes place during the story made famous in the previous movie, not after -- 300 didn't leave much room for a sequel. While Sparta's King Leonidas leads his brave 300 to the Battle of Thermopylae, Athenian Themistocles engages Xerxes' warships. The vast Persian Navy is lead by the ruthless and beautiful Artemisia (Eva Green) and Themistocles must do everything he can to outsmart this dangerous foe and save Greece from Godking Xerxes.

Maybe this is the signal that I have officially gotten too old (sad that I'm only 33), but I found almost everything in this movie to be gratuitous: the defined musculature, the IMAX touches, the violence, the sex, the wannabe-Braveheart motivational speeches and my goodness the blood. So much blood. There isn't much story and this is a simple exploitation of the popularity of the first movie and an exaggeration of each of its successful elements.

I am sure that this movie will still entertain a lot of people, but if I was ever in that demographic (and I loved the first 300 movie), I'm clearly not in it anymore.

The Kill Room by Jeffery Deaver

The Kill Room by Jeffery DeaverRobert Moreno, an American citizen living in South America, is shot in the Bahamas by a sniper. The killing was commissioned by the U.S. government, who received a tip-off that Moreno was planning a terrorist attack on a U.S. oil company headquarters. But this intelligence was fatally incorrect: anti-American Moreno ordered a protest at the oil company, not an attack.

Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are drafted in to investigate. While Sachs traces Moreno’s steps in New York, Rhyme travels to the scene of the crime in Nassau, where he finds himself on a dangerous path trailed by the sniper himself. As details of the case start to emerge, the pair discover that not all is what it seemed. Can they achieve justice and escape with their lives intact?

This book will be available on June 4, 2013.
