I have also just finished The Thief and will shortly be ordering The Queen
of Attolia on interlibrary loan. I thought The Thief was not bad, but I
only started really liking it at the end when everything fell into place.
Part of the lack of enthusiasm might have been because I finished The Curse
of Chalion just before I started The Thief, and I loved it. I have been
reading some very mediocre fantasies lately (I won't name names but some of
them are a couple of inches thick) and The Curse of Chalion was everything
they weren't. I also liked it a lot better than most of the Miles/Cordelia
OB DWJ - after reading the first of the fantasy bricks I had to go and
reread The Year of the Griffin to remind myself how good fantasy can be.
And now I think I am going to go and have a total break from fantasy and go
and read some Dick Francis.
