    What do YOU want from Robin Hobb?

    When I first started reading Hobb, I was enthralled. The first three trilogies were fantastic, but I found myself sort of bemused by Soldier Son, and while I enjoyed Dragon Keeper, it wasn't what I wanted from Hobb. I recently met Robin herself and asked her if she'd ever consider doing a...

    Soldier Son Trilogy....

    I just bought these three books a few hours ago, so.... Any pointers on what they're like? I also got the last three of four of the Song of Ice and Fire series, but that's for another thread in another area.

    Magic in Soldier son trilogy

    I just finish reading the first book of the soldier son trilogy. I have one question. Why doesn't the magic act on its own in Nevare? The tree woman said the magic will usually act on its own once it claims a person. Yet, in Nevare's case, he doesn't do anything to betray his people and help...

    Renegade's Magic

    It seems like I've been reading this for a very long time. Robin Hobb is one of my favourite writers and I love all her other books, even the other two Soldier Son books. But this one? I'm just struggling with! I don't like Soldier's Boy, and Nevare's not much better just floating around doing...

    Hobb and fanfiction...

    For most hardcore fans of Hobb, her opinions of fan fiction are no secret. Namely, that she does not allow the use of her characters and their worlds to be used in that way, and has, (with the aid of a legal team I'd imagine :p) eradicated all trace of any such writing from the net. Now, many...

    cover of Assassin's Apprentice

    I just finished Assassin's Apprentice for the first time reading anything by Robin Hobb. I loved it so much that I bought the entire Farseer trilogy already. but the paperback cover that was on my good doesn't make sense at all. I tried posting a picture with this topic but it doesn't seem to...

    I'm from Belgium, so I don't have the English books, and I was wondering how the original names are. I know some things, like FitzChevalry, Verity, Regal,... But how are the other people called? The fool says Fitz a name, something like my love? Anyway, if anyone would be so friendly to say me...

    What do I read first?

    Hi, first post. I read soldier sons trilogy a few years ago on a family holiday, when I was 15 or 16 years old which was totally boring so I spent my whole time reading the first book. I was totally drawn into the book, but I still haven't got around to reading the next one, which I heard it a...

    Farseer Trilogy

    Hi, I've just finished the Farseer Trilogy. I've come on the web to talk about it, and the first thing I see is that there is another 3 books? Are they in first person as Fitz again? I'd love to read another 3, I felt that the ending was quite weak and thought more should have been...

    Dream Cast for Farseer Movie!!

    My boyfriend has just started reading the Farseer Trilogy, and hopes to go on and read all of the Hobb books (as I have). We were having some fun today and came up with what we think is a super cool cast list for the main characters from the Farseer Trilogy... I'd love to hear opinions...

    Ship of Magic

    I just have to say that I finally picked up the first book of the Liveship Traders and was blown away by it. I had read the Farseer and Tawny Man books already and the first two Soldier son books. For some reason I had been hesitant to pick up the Liveship books. I guess I have been so...

    Books similar to Hobb's Style?

    So, I have read the Farseer, Liveship and Tawnyman series. Now I am left with one question, What next? I like Hobb's perspective and detail of writing, it was probably the most enjoyable read I've ever had, but now I'm looking for a new SERIES to get hooked onto. I don't really mind the...

    Re-read Farseer and Read Soldier Son Trilogy

    I am back to the Robin Hobb forum! Its been almost exactly one year since I read the six Farseer books and posted in here. Lately I've been thinking about re-reading the Farseer books. I think I might even enjoy them more the second time around possibly. Because this time I'd know it's worth it...

    if Hobb didnt write first person

    I was just wondering what Hobb's book would be like if she didnt write them in first person. We could have followed the fool and got a sense of him other than through Fitz's eyes. I know that everyone feels that Hobb is a little unfair and cruel to her main characters. We may think this...
