Big Grin That happened to me too. I also met RH in , hm, "advanced" age 22 and cannot really explain my enthusiam to others. They simply won't understand. And I can't explain to anybody, that I for example grieved for *Tawny Man spoiler*

Properly designed fictional characters take on a life of their own. There are things they simple cannot / will not do, no matter what the author tries.
So you know why it looks a bit different, I'm just letting you know that I have added a spoiler tag for your previous post, finella, just in case someone comes in to introduce themseves here but hasn't read up to Tawny Man by that stage. Smiling Hm, I might have to do a general sift through to catch any others that I may have missed elsewhere...no doubt half of them would be mine!...if anyone comes across any at any time, please point it/them out - thanks. Flowers

I agree though, this Hobb obsession is very difficult to explain to others and still sound sane...! P

Oh, thank you, Farseer! You are totally right. Specially here it's the completely wrong place not to be careful with spoilers. I just didn't think Mad.

hey, i'm Cara Vestrit and i'm new. (obviously P ). I began reading Robin Hobb´s books because one of my closes friends is a big fan of her. I´ve read Farseer, Live Ships, Tawny Man and Dragon keeper, dragon haven and city of dragons. I´m hoping to buy blood of dragons tomorrow, when the stores are open again. I read really fast so i´ll probably finish it after one day of looking like this Book . I ran across this site while surfing the internet for the release date Smiling I´m a big fantasy fan, altough i also enjoy other stories.
Well met and welcome, welcome, welcome to thePlenty, Cara Vestrit! Slurp Feel free to jump into any discussions you find here. Dance

I am green with envy that you have already been able to read CoD and will soon have read BoD as well!!Clapping

Feel free to discuss the plot points in the relevant threads here...

City of Dragons

or

Blood of Dragons

...but, as most here on thePlenty (including me! Down ) have not yet read them or will not have read them until either February through to April, it would be best to use spoiler tags to hide all spoilers for the time being.

Enjoy!! Flowers

EDIT: Oh! In case you don't know yet, here are the instructions on how to insert the spoiler codes from the Forum FAQ thread:

If you're mentioning something that you think might spoil the plot (for example you compare Fitz and Nevare in a topic that is not in a Soldier Son-related thread) you can use the spoiler tag.

You can either write
Code:
[spoiler]Nevare's last name is Burvelle[/spoiler]
which will create
...
or you can write
Code:
[spoiler=WARNING! CONTAINS HIGH LEVELS OF ELFBARK]Keep an eye on Rosemary[/spoiler]
which will result in

Please let us know if you need further clarification on the spoiler tags. Smiling
Hello Cara Vestrit Smiling



Surrender

Blood of Dragons is already being released somewhere, too!?! City of Dragons isn't even out for English-speaking countries, yet! This is unfair!!!!! Ouch

--- But yes.. Welcome, Cara!
The Dutch hardcover of Blood of dragons (Drakenbloed) was released last week.

I initially wanted to wait for the English version, but I'm seriously tempted to just buy the Dutch versions anyway (and the English when they're released).
How how HOW can a translated copy be released before the ORIGINAL version!?

I want to cry. Crying
