    One thought on “The Mad Ship”

    1. A wonderful sequel filled with spectacular characters development but unfortunately, it had a few pacing issues.Plot wise, I honestly don t have a lot of things to say about The Mad Ship Same as the first book and pretty much all Hobb s books that I ve read so far, character developments and relationships took the utmost priority here There is nothing wrong with it, in fact, I loved it most often than not However, there are a few pacing issues with this book that made me deduct my rating Let it [...]

    2. I m really starting to like Captain Kennit he s such a rogue in a most fortuitous situation He now has control of the ship Vivacia Who would have though it He just seemed to be full of false confidence with a heightened sense of unjustified arrogance But, it turns out, he is actually quite skilful He reminds me a little of Jack Sparrow in his deceptive uselessness And now he finds himself competing with his young prot g e, Wintrow, for the love and esteem of the vessel What did you just say, the [...]

    3. Another 5 stars for a book by Robin Hobb Shocker I know The Mad Ship is the sequel to Ship of Magic The Vestrit family liveship, Vivacia has been taken by the self proclaimed pirate King, Kennit When Althea discovers that the ship that she should have inherited has been captured, she sets out with Brashen Trell and the Paragon, a ship who has lost 2 crews previously and been beached ever since.There are so many story lines running through this book I m not sure how Robin Hobb keeps them straight [...]

    4. Honestly, this is one of the best books I have ever read and certainly will be one of the top books of this year so far for me I am so happy that after disliking the final Farseer book I continued on with Hobb s work because this book has sealed her as a fabulous and key writer in the Fantasy genre for me She s a fantastic writer, and I think that the progression between the first trilogy and this one is utterly incredible in the difference This is once the continuation of the Vestrit Family an [...]

    5. Phenomenal One of the best books I ve read this year I m dying to start Ship of Destiny but I know I can t yet.

    6. I ve put off writing this review for a while just cos it seemed almost impossible to write something coherent and basically befitting for the 2nd book of this marvellous series While i don t have many negative views on this book because awesome i did feel it was long winded at times especially when it came to the serpents Like i m so eager to know what happened but lawd have mercy can we speed it up with all the secrecy or when someone was thinking about something, like a long ass never ending d [...]

    7. Oh my goodness, SO GOOD Despite taking me almost a full two months to read, I still found this book absolutely compelling Plotted so well Characters so, so strong Robin Hobb s bread and butter is of course her characters This series continues to blow Farseer out of the water and I liked Farseer, but recognize its many weaknesses.

    8. Excellent character development, evenly paced plot, interesting world building and some jaw dropping revelations As a storyteller, Robin Hobb really knows how to engage the reader and make them care deeply for her characters.This book continues straight on from the previous without missing a beat Its the second book of a unified trilogy so in that regard it does suffer a little from being the middle book in that it doesn t have the same novelty as the first nor the resolution of the last Having [...]

    9. This is the second book in the Liveship Trader s trilogy and I thought it was brilliant As I read of Robin Hobb s work I am slowly falling and in love This trilogy follows many characters and spans not only land but the ocean as well We primarily follow a young lady called Althea as she attempts to save her families liveship a liveship is a ship that has a living figurehead Not only do we sail the sea with Althea, we also hear of pirates, dragons and magical tree top cities This trilogy hones [...]

    10. Wait what that s it Ah ok well, amazing.ot.aracter development, interactions and relationships growth feelings feelings heart stopping eventstives that messes with your mind Is he good Is he bad intrigueahh the feelings BADASSERY, did I get everything Probably not even close.There you go, you just have to create full sentences with these words and you ll get the picture Now excuse me while I run to start Ship of Destiny

    11. 4.5 stars Can t get over how much I care about these characters, and how intricate and fascinating the politics of this world are Hobb was the enemy of her own momentum towards the end, dragging scenes out that should ve been breathtaking But still, this series continues to be everything I want in fantasy, and .

    12. 4.5 stars, still epic, I just thought it has some second book pacing issues Hobb s character development is literal magic though.

    13. Hay un par de cositas que no puedo dejar de mencionar y que no me gustaron del libro La edici n La traducci n No hubo chape intenso Que ahora necesito s o s leer el tercero.Todo lo dem s, fue tan perfecto y mucho mejor de lo que esperaba, que ahora para superarlo solo puedo cantar Bed of Roses y llorar en el proceso Bye Bueno, termin Bed of Roses, yo termin de aullarle a la pantalla cantando a los cuatro vientos y lleg el momento de enfriarme y hacer una rese a Por qu las personas no pueden amar [...]

    14. This is the most original take on dragons that I ve ever read in fantasy, and I LOVE it Apparently all it takes is 800 pages of setup for Hobb to get into her stride All of the setup that she did in the first book pays off here, especially since the characters are coming together and there are fewer narrative threads to follow I m really glad I stuck with this series, because it s really original and full of interesting, nuanced female characters The one exception to that rule is Amber, who I m [...]

    15. Superb middle book of an amazing series Excellent development of some of the major characters, particularly Malta from bitch to fave, sea battles, romance, political intrigue, revelations about where the River Wild Traders obtain wizardwood, betrayal and some sad losses A brilliant series right up there with the best I have read.

    16. The adventures of the Vestrits, the liveships and Kennit continue The Rain Wild Traders came into focus and the mystery behind the sea snakes quest and liveships is revealed And what a mystery The characters personalities shift some became bold, some likable, some despiteful but they all grow one way or the other The ending is apotheotic and I m left dreaming of all the wonders

    17. Oh Kennit, you magnificent bastard You never cease to amaze me with your ingenious cunning, charismatic leadership, and downright selfishness You are absolutely horrible, yet I can t help but cheer you on.

    18. Nos hemos pasado mucho demasiado tiempo discutiendo que si la renovaci n de la fantas a, pero dif cilmente en tal debate o tales afirmaciones hallamos mencionada a Hobb No s si sea por el recuerdo de la trilog a del Vat dico, que es cuadradamente medieval, pero pocos voltean a ver a lo que pasa al sur de los Seis Ducados como un ejemplo de innovaciones estil sticas en el g nero No he le do nada de Tim Powers el nico ejemplo similar en el que puedo pensar ahora para contrastarlo, pero me sigue pa [...]

    19. When you read a 900 page book like The Mad Ship, writing a review like this seems so inadequate in capturing the essence of the book If you love rich high fantasy novels, I highly suggest adding Robin Hobb s books to your to be read pile It may be daunting because they re so long, but they are well worth it.The Mad Ship is the second book in the Liveship Traders Trilogy It s a direct continuation of the first book, Ship of Magic, and it provides us with answers to questions we were left with the [...]

    20. If I could give this 10 stars, I would I love everything about this book The writing is superb The characters are vibrant The world is fully realized I ve fallen head over heels in love with this story.Mad Ship picks up shortly after the events of Ship of Magic I adored Ship of Magic so jumping into Mad Ship was like curling up in a warm blanket It felt so good to be back in this world I missed Althea, Brashen, Wintrow, Ronica, Amber, and yes, even Malta and Kennit.Robin Hobb s writing is one of [...]

    21. Let s rescue the poor bugs That seems to be a recurring theme in this book with the identity of those bugs varying immensely There are plenty of people and other creatues at the edge of their existence, or just at the edge of life as they knew it.Second books in trilogies are always a bit weird They don t have the big rush to the finish the last book has, but neither do they have the excitement of a new world Once in a while there is an exception though, and this is one of them this book brings [...]

    22. Robin Hobb is an author that I savor Her writing style is engaging Her imagination is big time The quality of her stories is always consistent most have said The Soldier s Son Trilogy has been her weakest series to date I d probably agree, but to date I have only read the first of it So far, The Liveship Trader s series has wowed me.Mad ship picks up where Ship of Magic had left off The stories of Althea, Brashen, Wintrow, Malta, etc continue forward towards a point that we can t yet see, but ju [...]

    23. This review is really for the whole trilogy, which I read back to back, and so think of as one longer story than three individual books.So so at best In the Farseer and Tawny Man trilogies, Hobb had created not only a great, realistic world, but a fantastic narrator in the protagonist In this new series, she went from first person to third, which I have no problem with, but also shifted from having just on point of view, to having far, far, far too many There were AT LEAST SEVEN different regula [...]

    24. The second book in Liveship traders continues where the first book left of, and tells an engrossing tale of coming of age for many characters, the trend which I found in the first book was change, while this book has the trend of resistance, which manifests itself in all the characters Hobb continues to be a master story teller, and the way she shifts the primary characters to the backstage and brings the secondary characters from the first book to the stage, tells you that she is in full comman [...]

    25. It s ridiculous that as a sedate middle aged woman I find myself in the role of a twirling and fluttering fangirl, yet, here I am, ensorcelled by Robin Hobb s imagination to the point of wanting to shout out my adoration in forms that belong to readers far younger than I am gifs, OMGs and WTFs, and I just can t , and lots emoticons If I believed it would make anyone read these books assuming I ever figured out how to find and insert a gif into a review I would do it Just pretend they re here if [...]

    26. As posted on Zezee with Books.I d forgotten how much had occurred in this installment until I went through my highlighted portions of the book When I think back to events that occurred at the beginning of this novel, I think of them as having taken place in the first book, Ship of Magic I guess this is due to a combination of the novel s length and the time it took for me to complete it.Because I m finding it hard to make the structure of this review coherent, I ll just do it in sections and foc [...]
