The Atlas Six and The Wise man’s Fear
I am a true book-hoarder. So whenever I get the chance, I pay a visit to my favourite bookstore. There they know me well by now. I wonder if that is a good or a bad thing?
The last time I visited the store, I found two books that I found interesting. The girl who worked there looked at the books and shook her head: “You are not going to like them.”
About an hour later, I left with two other books instead:
The Atlas Six by Olivie Blake has received the nickname of being “a dark fantasy sensation”. I have read reviews as well as seen short films, where this book has been shown or mentioned.
I suspect that the book could be labeled as young/adult fantasy. And could be what I need after reading the book I am reading right now (more about that one later).
Short about the book: Six magicians compete for a place within the Alexandrian Society (Library). Where knowledge is being held, to incredible power. Everyone who has been allowed to study it has moved on on a successful journey afterwards.
Now the question is: who will survive this journey?
Why I picked up this book?
- The hype going around the book.
- The reviews: I will either Love it or Hate it. Interesting.
- I am so curious about this book, that I am going to read it right after I have finished the book I am reading now.
Which brings me to the next book: The wise man’s fear by Patrick Rothfuss.
The reason why I bought this book is:
- That this is the second book in a trilogy and I am now reading the first book: The name of the wind.
- I love the writing style of Patrick Rothfuss. He adds a lot of details, that makes even the slow moments interesting. Normally this is not something that I would appreciate, but so far I enjoy it.
I bought The name of the wind, because the book seemed a little “out of the box” for me.
I was suprisingly very soon into the story and now I can not wait to read more of Patrick Rothfuss.
