I am not sure if there is a thread about this book, but anyway here goes. I started reading this book and I must say I am quite enjoying Fitz's character and the style of Hobb's writing. I have one query though, from reviews a lot of people mention that there isn't much of a story/plot but more focus on the characters only. Is this true? I also heard that Hobb balances action, adventure and pace very well. I gave up on The Curse of the Mistwraith because I could not connect to the 2 characters. How is this book compared to say GRRM and Janny Wurts or Feist?
