This series has had an odd draw on me. I don't recall how I got on to the books, but I started with Assassin's Apprentice almost when it came out, read on with Liveship Traders and the Tawny Man and then it slumbered.
About a year ago I learned that Fitz and the Fool was done, read the trilogy, realised that I'd missed Rain Wild Chronicles and read that and now I'm working my way backwards again through Liveship Traders. I'll have to touch Tawny Man and Farseer again eventually, I think, just for completeness, but the prospect fills me with joy. Re-reading the books with the foreknowledge of what happens and where it goes is a joy in itself, but comparing what I got out of the story when I was basically a teenlad versus what I now realise is going on. I'm gushing, and hence I'm reluctant to touch the confined Tawny and Farseer trilogy again, but outside of Pratchett this is the first time I'm genuinely enjoying re-reading books.
Do you have books you read before, thought done, then touched again and learned something new?
