Another from NPR's Ultimate Backseat Bookshelf. The rating is entirely indicative of my enjoyment of the book and does not reflect the quality of the writing/story.
I do not like this type of fantasy, and it was kind of a slog for me to finish this book. Very similar to when I had to read The Wizard of Earthsea. High(ish) fantasy just doesn't do it for me. Unfortunately that means there's a lot of it that I'm reading to finish this list. While I didn't love the book, I did find parts very funny.
