Win a copy of the paperback edition of R. Scott Bakker's THE JUDGING EYE

I have three copies of the paperback version of R. Scott Bakker's excellent The Judging Eye up for grabs, compliments of the cool folks at The Overlook Press. For more info about this title: Canada, USA, Europe.

I feel that The Judging Eye is Bakker's best book thus far, so do give it a shot!

Here's the blurb:

The Darkness That Comes Before, The Warrior Prophet, and The Thousandfold Thought --collectively the Prince of Nothing Saga--were R. Scott Bakker's magnificent debut into the upper echelon of epic fantasy. In those three books, Bakker created a world that was at once a triumph of the fantastic and an historical epic as real as any that came before.

Widely praised by reviewers and a growing body of fans, Bakker has already established the reputation as one of the smartest writers in the fantasy genre--a writer in the line stretching from Homer to Peake to Tolkein. Now he returns to The Prince of Nothing with the long awaited The Judging Eye, the first book in an all-new series. Set twenty years after the end of The Thousandfold Thought, Bakker reintroduces us to a world that is at once familiar but also very different than the one readers thought they knew. Delving even further into his richly imagined universe of myth, violence, and sorcery, and fully remolding the fantasy genre to broaden the scope of intricacy and meaning, R. Scott Bakker has once again written a fantasy novel that defies all expectations and rewards the reader with an experience unlike any to be had in the canon of today's literature.

The rules are the same as usual. You need to send an email at reviews@(no-spam) with the header "EYE." Remember to remove the "no spam" thingy.

Second, your email must contain your full mailing address (that's snail mail!), otherwise your message will be deleted.

Lastly, multiple entries will disqualify whoever sends them. And please include your screen name and the message boards that you frequent using it, if you do hang out on a particular MB.

Good luck to all the participants!

this is my personal opinion as someone who has read the first 3 books :
this is one of the worst books out there (the original series), stay away from it.

Also having read the three first books I can say: I enjoyed it and am looking forward to this next trilogy.

As someone who has also read the first three books AND this one: machinery, you have terrible taste. Just sayin'.

The above posters should give Jo Walton's post 'Why reviewers don't often say “This sucks”.' on the site a read. It has good comments on book reviews and opinions about why people say what they do in reviews. Good read.

I agree with machinery. I was highly disappointed by this book. While good and some times great, it wasn't on the level of the Prince of Nothing.

I read the first 3 back to back, and I loved them all.

Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

@Machinery, that's not what a 'pissing match' usually refers to, but it's whatever.
