This series is my favorite fantasy series. The main character is real, the concept is excellent and the story is well written. Book 4 just came out, so I am rereading the 1st three.
Deserving of all the awards it has won! Beautiful writing, wonderfully told story of the main character‘s life - just enough rambling and wandering from topic to topic to give you the feeling you are being told this story. This is a brilliant character study that also gives a real sense of time and place.
