Nice! DG is pretty great. Let me know what you think as you continue!

Finished it yesterday. Much better than Gardens as I remember. The chain of dogs storyline may be one of the greatest I've ever read. I loved the pessimism of Duiker the whole way through. And Coltaine, so much mystery about him unanswered.

The thing I found the most annoying was that there were constantly things unresolved.

For example:
the talking chain of armour in the Azath House and the giant dragon appearing out of nowhere.

I think it drags the individual book down by having so many of these but it'll probably make the series as a whole spectacular. Assuming they are answered.

I loved Kulp's death. I love when books do that. Almost needlessly killing a character.

Furthermore, the revelations about Laseen were really great. The cross referencing with what I assume to be the MoI storyline is very special when done right.
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
