Engrossing, hard to put down, that's what Assassin's Apprentice is. Picked it up on Friday and finished it Sunday night. didn't get much done but what a 'vacation' I had (so to speak) I was so entranced by the plot and the interaction of the characters, I think that's what sold me the most. I'd also suggest The Unsuspecting Mage by Brian S. Pratt, though it's not nearly the caliber of this one.
Like I said, you've 'gotta read this!!"

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The quality of the writing and characterization in this novel and the two following entries in the trilogy are absolutely superb. The way Robin Hobb manages to so throughly inhabit the skin of this developing boy on the edges of the main story is simply phenomenal. His development, screw-ups, love, and enmities are incredibly realized. The quality of the writing simply sings. One reviewer on the book describes it as a diamond in a sea of zircons and it is an apt description. This is writing of the highest quality and it towers in quality over most novels. I cannot recommend this book and its trilogy (along with the Tawny Man trilogy, also by Robin Hobb) highly enough.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
First let me say this is a good, solid fantasy story. The author creates excellent characters, a very good (though slightly predictable at times) story, and has a gift for stirring raw emotion (goosebumps, tears, frustration, exhiliration, blah blah).
So why only three stars? TO WARN YOU!!! If at times when reading this story you felt is was a bit predictable, a little too "touchy feely" with its spoon-fed, heavy-handed, black-and-white high moral delivery, but you forgave it due to the great characters and (long-awaited) plot twists, then STOP HERE - DO NOT PASS GO, DO NOT COLLECT $200 - THANK YOU ROBIN HOBB, GREAT BOOK, NOW MOVE ON TO SOMETHING ELSE. Moving on to the second book will only serve to frustrate you and demean the good memories of this book (not to mention waste you money).

There are some books that are so head and shoulders above almost everything else out there that they can only instill awe. The Fitz trilogies are one of these rare gems. I would gladly have had millions of average and sub-par novels never been written to see just one more trilogy of this quality.

The character depth and realism, and the way the plot points are tied together, it makes it a joy to read over again. It's a world brought to life in a way that you could easily imagine living in it.

I have loved Robin Hobb's books since I began reading them as a young teenager. Although I wasn't a huge fan of the Liveship Trilogy I have definitely loved the rest and I can't wait to see how she brings back Fitz in her new book!

Review: A while back I was given a recommendation by a friend to read this book. It was described as one of the best fantasy books they have read. Although Robin Hobb has created a good novel, it did not live up to the expectations that I had. The story is of a bastard son of a prince who dies early in the novel. As you may have guessed from the title, this boy becomes the apprentice of an assassin, although he has no intention to kill or harm anyone. Hobb’s story is exciting, and has many interesting parts, but it never had that ‘Wow’ factor that will usually draw a reader into the story. The book had some high points, but not enough to make up for the boring and low points throughout. Overall, if you can’t find a fantasy book to read, or you are loaning from a friend, then this is a great book to pick up. I would not suggest paying for it though, unless you have tried and liked other writings by Hobb beforehand.

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved reading this book. I had been reading non-fiction for so long (mainly philosophy) that I just wanted to dab into the world of fantasy and try something new. I picked up Assassin's Apprentice after reading positive reviews on amazon and I have to say that I was not disappointed at all!

While I absolutely love this story and I am about to read Royal Assassin, I found the ending of Assassin's Apprentice to be a bit too long...I felt a sort of ''fatigue'' from the author and I thought that the story was just dragging on for too long (yet I couldn't stop reading the book).

I also loved the author's writing style and the fact that magic is used throughout the story in a constructive way, and that the story is really about character development. I did somewhat enjoy the Harry Potter series but not that much, and I was looking for a good fantasy novel since I was getting tired of reading about philosophy (it does take its toll on ya!) and I will stick to this genre for a while.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!
