GGK Book Club: THE SUMMER TREE, ch 9-12

The Summer Tree, Guy Gavriel Kay

You know how you have those days where you’re sure that you’ll manage to have time to do that thing so you don’t let people know that you’re not doing it that day because you’re going to have time even if it’s at the last minute, and then it’s three days later and you haven’t done it because you kept being sure you’d have time and

Yes, I thought you were familiar with that. This is why the post for chapters 9-12 is so late. I’ve caught up on the reading, but I’ve been suffering from the conviction that despite ear infections and head colds and so on and so forth that I would get my commentary *written up*.

Since it appears I’m not yet in a position to write something particularly brilliant, I will at least, once more, make a post, and let other people get to chatting, and maybe tonight I’ll be able to catch up. ;)

I'm definitely starting to hit the "It's really hard to stop reading" at this point as well.

I knew Paul's story started pretty early but I had really forgotten that Jennifer got kidnapped so early in the story. Which, admittedly needs to happen pretty early for reasons as well but it still surprised me.

I can see why the other commenter said the characters aren't deep at this point though it amuses me all the same because I was thinking when I was catching up this weekend that the reason I like the Fionvarr Tapestry better than Tolkien is that he has deeper characters than most of the ones in Lord of the Rings.

It's definitely interesting, having read so many of GGK's books to see the evolution of his writing style though.

The Dave parts of the first part have always been my least favorite section so I'll be glad when we shift focus again.

No worries! The only reason I'm good at keeping up with this sort of thing is that I have a train commute I can read on. ;-)
