    About "Robin Hobb"

    1. Robin Hobb

      I am shocked to find that some people think a 2 star I liked it rating is a bad rating What I liked it I LIKED it That means I read the whole thing, to the last page, in spite of my life raining comets on me It s a good book that survives the reading process with me If a book is so so, it ends up under the bed somewhere, or maybe under a stinky judo bag in the back of the van So a 2 star from me means,yes, I liked the book, and I d loan it to a friend and it went everywhere in my jacket pocket or purse until I finished it A 3 star means that I ve ignored friends to finish it and my sink is full of dirty dishes A 4 star means I m probably in trouble with my editor for missing a deadline because I was reading this book But I want you to know I don t finish books I don t like There s too many good ones out there waiting to be found.Robin Hobb is the author of three well received fantasy trilogies The Farseer Trilogy Assassin s Apprentice, Royal Assassin, and Assassin s Quest , The Liveship Traders Trilogy Ship of Magic, Mad Ship and Ship of Destiny and the Tawny Man Trilogy Fool s Errand, Golden Fool, and Fool s Fate Her current work in progress is entitled Shaman s Crossing Robin Hobb lives and works in Tacoma, Washington, and has been a professional writer for over 30 years.In addition to writing, her interests include gardening, mushrooming, and beachcombing She and her husband Fred have three grown children and one teenager, and three grand children.She also writes as Megan Lindholm, and works under that name have been finalists for the Hugo award, the Nebula Award, and the Endeavor award She has twice won an Isaac Asimov s Science Fiction Readers Award.

    1. 4.5/5 starsA satisfying conclusion to the Liveship Traders trilogy and at the same time, it also made me super excited to start Tawny Man trilogy.Ship of Destiny marks the conclusion to the Liveship Traders trilogy, the second out of five subseries in Hobb’s Realm of the Elderlings series, and this was overall a satisfying conclusion. I really have to give this praise to Robin Hobb. Having read six books and one novella so far, whether I love it or not (mostly love), I found all her stories to [...]


    2. I loved the ending of this because everything was resolved perfectly, and at the same time the events have far, far, reaching consequences. These will no doubt affect the Six Duchies. This made the ending so strong for me because I couldn’t wait to read more. I couldn’t wait to see how far Amber has (and will) shape the world in accordance with her prophecies.It’s all about the dragons!'The magic behind all this slowly began to reveal itself across the trilogy and, finally, in this book it [...]


    3. Another stunning trilogy by Robin Hobb. How I loved the characters! They are so vivid and real. Althea and Brashen are to fall in love with. Im no big fan of pirate tales, but Robin Hobb just enthralls me. I just had the best start of the morning by finishing this book. Woke up before 8 am ( on a day off ) Decided to read the last few pages ( fell asleep last night on the couch ) and there were cookies next to me.healthy start of the day!Im still convinced everyone should just read Robin Hobb. T [...]


    4. This one is going down as one of my favourite fantasy trilogies. Without a doubt! (This review contains some spoilers of book 1 and 2)Part of it is very typical Robin Hobb (after 6 books I’m allowed to say that right?) she makes characters so incredible real they become existing people. I’ve said it before, but it’s just really true: they become people for you to love or loathe. But it’s also remarkable how mean she is to them all: she sends them through hell, leaves them there without f [...]


    5. No intentes alcanzar las estrellas cuando estés rodeada del ancho mar.Reseña general sin "spoilers":Con una trama que partía de una idea sencilla, esta autora me llevó por las corrientes de un mar agresivo y caprichoso hacia el surgimiento de un relato sinfónico. Un relato largo, que se toma su tiempo para golpear, pero que, cuando lo hace, el derramamiento de sangre es seguro. Y la sangre recuerda. La sangre es identidad, y una parte de mi identidad se fue a bordo de las naves que vuelan e [...]


    6. Robin Hobb delivers a highly satisfying finale to an enjoyable fantasy series. If you have read The Farseer Trilogy and are debating whether to read this trilogy next or skip ahead to the Tawny Man trilogy – I can’t recommend The Liveships Trilogy enough. I think there are little tidbits throughout to reward those who choose to continue in publication order.One thing Hobb does well, is produce interesting, well thought out, multidimensional characters. Many of the characters who are arguably [...]


    7. I did it! I finished it! My reading of these three 900-page-books has been quite a journey, but in the end I'm glad I stuck to the end and got a great reading experience out of it. This is the last book in the trilogy, so obviously I can't tell you too much about the story. However, I can tell you that this last installment was quite breathtaking and intense. With this novel, I finally felt a deep connection to all of the characters, maybe because I've been following their journeys for so many p [...]


    8. I'm just so grateful that this series exists. It is phenomenal. I enjoyed every hour of my life that I spent on these three books. That is all.



    9. I give this book 5 pirates 5 dragons no, wait 5 stars! One of the most emotionally charged fantasy books I have read coming from the master at making fantasy feel real, The Magician, Robin Hobb! Ship of Destiny (2001) is the third book in the Liveship Traders series by Robin Hobb. An absolute amazing finale! This comes from someone who gave two stars for it's first book, Ship of Magic. This book/trilogy is perfect for anyone who likes the fantasy genre with less action, more deep emotions an [...]


    10. This whole series has been perfection. It's not often that after reading a 2* book by an author I will continue on with their work but with Hobb I am so thrilled that I did go on to the Liveship books after the Farseer ones because truly she's a miracle writer and her ability to craft convincing, beautiful and stunning characters, worlds and ideas is unparalleled. This is book 3 in the Liveship books and so naturally I cannot give away the plot of the story but suffice to say we're once more fol [...]


    11. There are some beautiful ideas in there -- about dragons, and the life cycle of a dragon -- and there are references to the Farseers trilogy that complete that story, that explain things. Yet it's also, for quite a few people I've spoken to, quite tedious to read. This time as I was going through, I tried to put into words why it's broken for me. Comparisons to the Farseers trilogy abound, as well as spoilers for both trilogies and probably for the Tawny Man trilogy as well. Some of this, I've a [...]


    12. 4.5 en realidad.Creo que es hora de colocar esta imagen que hace años que conservo como uno de mis tantos fondos de pantalla en mi computadora (sí, tengo una serie de fondos que se van deslizando DÉJENME SER) y que resulta que, sin saberlo, es la portada de uno de los libros de esta saga cuya autora me cautivó desde el principio. Oh, Hobb, te amaba desde antes sin saberloNo me voy a extender mucho con este libro. Tiene medio punto menos que el anterior pero es solo una cuestión formal. No m [...]


    13. Reading Ship of Destiny fulfilled the majority of my expectations. Being the third and final book of the Liveship Traders trilogy, I was hoping it would do just that. Actually, Ship of Destiny exceeded some of my hopes with an open-ended finish. Matching the standards of the first two books can be no easy task for Robin Hobb, but it’s something I’ve learned not to fear. She always comes through. Somehow the tension provided in these three books only managed to increase as the story continued [...]



    14. Guys and Gals. I'm finally going to write a quick review. This fantasy trilogy is SO GOOD. A perfect blend of intricate world building, a rich plot, and most importantly fleshed out characters.One of the things I love about fantasy is that it is able to take true to life problems and injustices and put a fresh face to them. It allows the reader to step into these injustices and look at them more baldly because they are happening outside of our own world. It makes me think hard about my own preco [...]


    15. Signs of an excellent book: Keeps you up at night. Makes you forget your body's basic needs. Makes your vision blurry from reading it constantly. Relationships suffer because you ignore other people to read said book. All of this happened to me in the course of reading Ship of Destiny. I could not put this book down. For days, I was completely entranced by Robin Hobb's world. And I would not have it any other way.Ms. Hobb played my emotions like a fiddle. I felt like a marionette and she was hol [...]


    16. My brain is too fried to think, and a picture is worth a thousand words soLet me open up by showing an accurate depiction of Robin Hobb and her charactersYep looks accurate enough to me and I thought she was mean to my babies in Farseer :') This series was borderline sadist towards those precious children Shall we continue?When we finally learned the full extent of the flashbacks despite all the previous not-so-subtle hintswhen THAT scene happenedAll the other near-hitsThen there is the light at [...]


    17. What a great read. I need to sit and dwell on the series then I will review. I'm actually a little sad, not because of how it ended, but because I was so engrossed in the story that I don't want to come back to reality. I want to stay aboard the ship. ***********************************************************Updated Review - Review of all three books in the Robin Hobb The Liveship Traders Trilogy 3 Books Collection Set.I've read the The Farseer Trilogy and throughout the years since I read it p [...]


    18. Finally there is a Hobb book with a thoroughly satisfying end! Ship of Destiny, the final piece of a very complex puzzle which reveals so many secrets. The story continues Althea's quest for her Liveship while the other story line follows the newly awoken dragon. While some parts of the story were predictable, there were so many well placed twists and revelations that leave you stunned and a few times even sickened. The narration is excellent as always. However the length of the novel could have [...]


    19. 5 amazing stars. This has without a doubt become my favorite trilogy of all time. I loved everything about these books; the characters, the setting, the story. Robin Hobb is simply a master at what she does and I can't wait to continue on with the other trilogies set in this world.


    20. A fine, although a bit rushed finish to a remarkable fantasy trilogy.The character development is still strong. I was especially pleased to see well-written female protagonists of all ages. However, because their world is very patriarchal, women do not have it easy and this book in particular goes to some dark places.It includes a brutal rape of my favourite character by another major character. What made it even more heartbreaking is that no one believed her. From that point on in the book I ha [...]


    21. I loved how inventive this series was, but - blasphemously - I think it could have been at least 500 pages shorter. And while the climax doesn't disappoint, with every character converging in the same place in a satisfying way, I found Althea's arc to be so underwhelming and unnecessary that it took out some of the joy of the conclusion. Ultimately, I'd recommend these books to fantasy readers who aren't afraid of a 2500+ page commitment, but with some reservations that I didn't expect after fin [...]


    22. Hobb is a genius, and I'm so going to miss these characters. Bingtown society was fascinating, and the exploration of tradition and human nature was phenomenal. Trigger warning for rape.


    23. Absolute joy to read this series. Any plot points would spoil the earlier books but there are pirates, dragons, sea serpents, love stories, heartbreaking losses, a beautiful twist to tie in the Fitz series and a breathtaking number of amazing characters. All of them have long journeys, good guys go bad, horrible characters change and the strong women in the Vesterit family knit everything together. Loved this so much - without question one of my favourite series of all time and gutted I will nev [...]


    24. A great conclusion to a wonderful trilogy.I loved the development of the characters, especially that of Malta; I loved the liveships and the wonderful description of their journey towards self-discovery, especially that of Paragon. I loved the dragon and the rain wilders and I'm looking forward to more of their adventures.I was greatly surprised to discover here another facet of the Fool. Or maybe this was his true image after all. Hobb's writing is so brilliant that I only managed to put all of [...]


    25. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. My favourite of the three Hobb trilogies I've read to date and even better the second time through them all. Simply fantastic.


    26. Coming to an end of my first Hobb trilogy, I saved this book for a time I knew I'd need it. I hoped it was going to follow the first two, and be an epic immersion into a rich and vibrant world of magic, of adventure, and of humanity. So, sure enough, coming out the other end of what was one of the hardest weeks of my adulthood, I picked up "Ship of Destiny" and I disappeared. Was it everything I'd hoped? Oh yes.Such a satisfying conclusion. Characters, instead of following the path I assumed wou [...]


    27. It was pretty damn epic. These three books were very long and had the entire family become heroes in their own right. The wrap-up was long and satisfying, and while the the main action wasn't necessarily a single or even ten different events, the resolution had an inevitable and happy feel to it that wasn't diminished by one main character's death. You'll know who I mean, and you probably won't even mind his passing. After all, he passes on a heritage that perhaps won't be tainted by his past. P [...]
