Welcome to our Robin Hobb podcast series. In these three episodes, we discuss the Farseer trilogy, Hobb’s first books in the Realm of the Elderlings. These podcasts were surprising in that while we could see the authorial skill on display, it was the first book series that just wasn’t quite our cup of tea. Also interesting, though, was watching our opinions temper somewhat as the trilogy progressed, so that by the end we could say we were invested in the story and the characters.
We’re commonly asked whether we’ll continue with the Realm of the Elderlings books. The answer is … probably. Listener emails have frequently stated that future books in the series improve upon these, and we’ll be interested to put that assertion to the test.
