Review - Best Served Cold, Joe Abercrombie

Best Served ColdBest Served Cold by Joe Abercrombie

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I'm only going to give this book 2 stars because it was so gruesome. I don't usually mind gruesome if it advances the storyline, but in this book "gruesome" seemed to be the star. I absolutely loved Joe's "First Law" trilogy and that had gruesome parts as well, but the characters were the center stage. In this book, I think he could have curtailed a bit on the gory details and still got his point across. In the end I really didn't care who survived or who died.  I put this book down too many times and only because of my stubbornness to read most books I start that this book was finished.
