I'm still struggling through The Lions of Al-Rassan. I don't particularly care for any of the characters to be honest. Also, this is more of an alternative history, rather than a fantasy as such. I don't know, it's just not what I had expected. I like it just as much as A Song for Arbonne, which is unfortunate, because I almost did not finish that book. Maybe Tigana spoiled me a bit on the GGK books. Is Tigana the best one by far? Or am I just missing something? If this continues on like this The Lions of al-Rassan will be my first DNF in a long, long time.
