First and foremost I am typically not a fan of Fantasy, I just needed to say that. I read ‘Wizard’s First Rule” on the very high recommendation of a friend.

At times I struggled with the believably in the characters in the ways they interacted with each other. There were some information that I felt was too drawn out in story line and could have been revealed with less preamble and would not have effected the story line negatively. There were a few parts that I really wanted to just skim through and get on with the rest of the story. However, despite this, I really enjoyed the book and would read it again. And most definitely plan to read the following installments of the series.

Friendships that deepen despite, and sometimes because of, tragedy. I think we all need to be reminded sometimes who are true friends are, whether our lives face tragedy or joy, […]
