I’d be interested to get your final thoughts. The Book of the New Sun is possibly my favourite series of all time. I’ve read it twice and can say it definitely benefits from a re-read. When I picked it up the second time it was such a joy to fall back into the style of prose, and all the little mysteries started to reveal themselves a little further, bit by bit.Okay, I'm going back in - I'm starting The Citadel of the Autarch today. Comments and overall reviews will crop up here in due course.
From the first pages it seems as if there has not been a big gap between the end of Sword of the Lictor and this volume, which makes a nice change, from the perspective of becoming acquainted with what's occurring on the page.
Is URTH a valuable addition?I always think of the 5 books as one book.
