A good read, but make sure you are starting from the beginning of the series.

I have really enjoyed the 'Malazan book of the Fallen' series by Steven Erikson, and am currently on my second read of it.

I find he has a tendency to throw in things that, at the time, make no sense, and will only later reveal what it means much later in the, or possibly even the next book. This can throw some readers off, if you expect to understand everything as you read it, this may not be the series for you, but if you can read a chapter where an event happens, then is ignored for some time before it comes up again, then you won't be bothered.

This is a 10 book series (with some offshoots by Erikson himself and another author) and all 10 books are worth reading, in order.

Although the style is a little... simple, I find the world and the portrayal of the characters to be intensely engaging. It is no Wheel of Time but I just cannot put this down, definitely a great read and well worth recommending.

The writing style of this book caused me to skip certain paragraphs, the same way many ppl likely started doing in wheel of time when Jordan's characters would start on their repetitive internal dialogues. Other than that a fine book with an incredible ending.

The character development and story lines in this series are second to none. I have no patience for soliloquizing (probably not a real word). I enjoy the occasional soap box but don't try to make that into art. These stories are such rich, deep, interesting tales I am just amazed as I continue to read through this series!

This is the 8th book in Steven Erikson's 'Malazan Book of the Fallen" series.

Of all the books in the Malazan series, this is, without a doubt, my least favorite...I will explain

First, the pros;

Overall, this series is epic fantasy at its best; in fact 829 pages in this book alone. There is intrigue, magic, unexpected enemies and friends and even some erotic moments; not to mention the usually backstabbing and clandestine plotting. In this book we are reacquainted with some old friends from previous tales, e.g. Cutter, Druiker, Karso Orlong (Toblakai warrior), Anomander Rake and last but not least, the ever loquacious, forever famished, mound of round, Kruppe.

Erikson's strength is his use of prose to describe people and their surrounding, all the while weaving a tale his characters come alive in; this latest installment is no exception. In fact, this may be the first in all the books that may be somewhat overwritten because of some of these perceived strengths. Which leads me into commenting on...

The cons;

1.)As with previous Erikson works, the book starts off by given brief glimpses of several different developing stories. The problem here, in my opinion, is that unlike previous books, most of these story lines do not really develop into something resembling a plot until well after the first 200+ pages.

2.)In addition to the slow development, the writing seems heavy and difficult to follow; I had to almost 'study' sections to try to figure out what Erikson had his characters doing and saying.

3.)I found I became 'weary' of trying to interpret the vague, unclear conversations and happenings that occurred through out most of the entire novel.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By D. T. S. W. on Oct. 5 2008
Format: Paperback
Like the other reviewers here, I found this book quite difficult to get into. It does seem like Erikson has taken a different approach to writing this novel and it is an approach, quite frankly, that does not work. There are passages where Erikson squeezes in his views on religion, theology, economics, etc. but in an overly verbose and unenjoyable way. Interspersed in the novel are the meat and potatoes of the book where the plot is driven forward and the characters developed. I too found myself skipping over the former parts to get to the more interesting paragraphs. I don't even bother reading the poems that start off each paragraph anymore. I don't see the point.

I love Erikson's other works and recommend those to all my friends looking for a great fantasy read. Sadly, I can't say the same for this book. I will finish it just so I know what is going on for the next book. Hopefully Erikson (or his editor) gets this series back to what made it popular in the first place.

Anyone to have made it through the previous 7 books in this series should know Erickson very well by now. He takes his time telling these stories and makes no apologies about it. We spend many hundreds of pages getting to know characters and their circumstances before the big events start to unfold, and in doing so - those events weigh heavy when they finally do arrive. Each character we are introduced to is flushed out through many dimensions, giving us a glimpse of all of their humanities and inhumanities. Gods, men, and demons are all rendered with this fine-detail brush and the reader often comes away from these written encounters deeply touched and profoundly moved.

Without fail, Erikson's writing improves with each new volume. He is able to convey comedy, combat, drama, and wit with equal quality - important skills that keep the ready engaged through the nearly 1000 pages of "Toll the Hounds".

While every book ultimately portrays epic events in the fantastical world Erikson has created, "Toll the Hounds" - miraculously - manages to raise the bar yet again and before the last page is turned, many large and gasp-worthy changes will have been wrought.
With only two more books to read in the series ("The Dust of Dreams" is already available and the final volume, "The Crippled God", is shortly forthcoming), I can only hold my breath and plunge forward with trust that while in Erikson's capable hands, I will not be disappointed.
