Magician Apprentice

review Magician Apprentice Magician Apprentice review Ì 3 review Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB Ð Raymond E. Feist An alternate cover edition of this ISBN can be found hereTo the forest on the shore of the Kingdom of the Isles the orphan Pug came to study. Earlier this year I got back into the fantasy genre by reading Patrick Rothfuss The Name of the Wind Since then I ve been reading backwards finding the authors Rothfuss was favorably compared to and reading their books I was very taken with the author I read next George R R Martin and would happily have continued the Song of Fire and Ice series but apparently the next book in that series has been postponed till 2013 So I chose Raymond Feist who was next on my list To a total fantasy virgin it may hold some appeal but even the books I read at the peak of my dorkiness at a time when I read almost nothing except books by RA Salvatore and others published by Forgotten Realms are significantly better than this book Simply put Magician Apprentice lacks the subtlety beauty and complexity of the other works of fantasy or even plain old fiction I ve read this year Overall I d say it reads like the collected notes of what were probably very engaging DD styled scenarios and RPG adventures The characters are perhaps over loved by the author All are sort of generic nice guys thrown into tough situations They lack flaws they have no weaknesses and so they don t broaden as characters They re chivalrous and handsome When they fail rarely it s through no fault of their own All personal conflicts are resolved with a good cry some laughter and then drinks The most major change in a character is enacted not by learning from experience or harsh reality or personal introspection but instead by donning mysterious magical armor None of the characters face than brief moral or ethical dilemmas Because these men are only faced with deus ex machina type problems their growth is never shown we re merely told it s happened after random narrative leaps Four months has passed and generic male hero 1 wishes to return home or 2 years have passed and generic male 2 is now battle hardened Okay I guess if you say so The females are even one dimensional All those given than one line of dialog are beautiful playful strong willed and eager to find a partner Even the elven ueen is essentially the same she just has a title Leaving aside for a moment the other worldly opposition the only villains are mentioned in passing None are full characters just useful tools to create minor shifts in the action The opposition from another world are the most interesting but unfortunately much of the consideration and description of them is repetitious They have different notions of honor they re fearless they speak a tonal language they come from a world without metal and employ a magic beyond the understanding Midkemians Those basic points are hammered home over and over again Over and over again is one of the main problems of this book So much feels like repetition of the same fight the same history and the same description I read the author s preferred text or edition or some such nonsense Having not read the original I can t be sure but I m sure that with 20 40 pages trimmed while many of my complaints about the characters would be the same at the very least the plot would move that much fasterI also read Magician Master which I won t bother reviewing but is a slight improvement I d probably give it two stars The description and consideration of the Kelewan world its people and their customs is far interesting than anything in the first book but the writing and characters still feel tired and one dimensional

review Magician Apprentice Magician Apprentice review Ì 3 review Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB Ð Raymond E. Feist Wizardry Yet his strange magic may save two worlds from dark beings who opened spacetime to renew the age old battle between Order and Chaos. I wanted to like this book I really did First a major caveat The Magician Apprentice is only one part of a two volume novel The second volume The Magician Master completes the tale Given this it isn t really fair to judge the first volume on many points so keep in mind that my review applies almost exclusively to this first volumeThe Magician Apprentice is a story centered on you guessed it a magician s apprentice named Pug who finds himself an unlikely hero when the world of Midkemia is invaded by the Tsurani from another dimension Unfortunately the whole thing sounds exciting than it really is First of all I found myself perpetually annoyed that our hero was named Pug It kept conjuring images of a dog faced boy with bug eyes The name is cute in a way that distracted me from believing that he could ever become anything than a pubescent putz Further Pug s character is thin and cliche Fiest provides plenty of narration but Pug performs so few character defining actions and has so few lines of dialogue that he remains a mystery Rather than being a participant I often felt as though the story were happening to himSadly Kulgan the magician to whom Pug is apprenticed is your stereotypical fantasy magician he is tempermental wears long robes and a funny hat sports a long white beard and puffs away on a pipe That isn t to say that a fantasy magician shouldn t appear this way it s just that this is all I know of Kulgan He too is flat and boringI really liked the concept of the apprentice magician It reminds me of Luke Skywalker apprenticing with Obi Wan and Yoda But we never really see Pug do any apprenticing He becomes an apprentice reads a lot and that s pretty much it In fact we don t see him doing much other than being conflicted over the Duke s daughter which frankly I thought was lame I picked up a book called The Magician not An Average Awkward Fourteen Year Old Boy Discovers GirlsWe also never get to see a scene like the one in which Skywalker observes the master at work such as Obi Wan s Jedi mind tricks These aren t the droids you re looking for or Yoda lifting the X Wing from the swamp on Dagobah We never see Kulgan do anything interesting with magic so we really don t have any idea what Pug is shooting forThere are also problems with the plot itself First I have read some of it before in a little tale called The Lord of the Rings You may have heard of it Feist s world is so Tolkienesue that it gives me heartburn Take for example the trek through the mines You know the mines dug out by the dwarves who dared to delve deeper than was safe So deep in fact that there are unnamed evils lurking there No I m not talking about the mines of Moria I m talking about the mines of Mac Mordian Cadal Yeah even the name is somewhat familiar This is a setting too associated with the The Lord of the Rings to work well anywhere else Moria is a place that truly scared me but the mines of Mac Mordian Cadal make me feel like an adult walking through a Disneyland version of Moria To be fair the first three uarters of The Magician Apprentice are almost an unnecessary part of the story These chapters serve to introduce a variety of characters and place them in position for the inevitable Tsurani invasion After the invasion however the story finally loses its Tolkiensue flavor and begins to take on a life of its ownFeist fails to consistently pace his story we jump from We have been invaded to The war has been going on now for a year and now we re tired You re telling me that all the excitement surrounding an invasion from another dimension is going to be frittered away like Adam Sandler s life was fast forwarded in Click WTF I want to be where the fighting is not in some drawing room talking about strategy a whole year after the war has startedFeist also has trouble with perspective At first we think we re in third person limited but Feist freuently hops into third person omniscient On than one occasion he switches perspective mid scene with no line breaks or visual cues This drives me up the wall There is nothing annoying than being in Pug s head one moment and then hopping over to Kulgan and then back to Pug It is enough to make a reader go cross eyed Further when we re supposed to be in Pug s perspective Feist insists on telling us things that he can t possibly know The narrator s voice creeps into the story and I find myself wanting to slam the door in his face and tell him to get the hell outOverall I found myself trudging through this book Although I think the concept of the rift is genius Feist failed to bring it to fruition I can t help but think that Feist s editor should have rapped him on the knuckles with this manuscript It never should have left the editor s desk looking like this Once I hit a point when I realized that the story had jumped two years ahead in time I nearly gave up Massive temporal shifts like that are tough to pull off but they are made even difficult when the reader doesn t give a damn about the charactersHaving started reading the second volume I can say that much is improved Feist has finally managed to bring Pug into focus and despite its flaws I am honestly looking forward to continuing the story
