The Malazan Re-read of the Fallen: House of Chains, Ch 10,11,12


Here are chapters 10, 11, and 12 of Amanda and Bill's re-read of House of Chains:
And then the discussion between Fiddler and Gesler is something else entirely — sharp, with much more going on than is actually said. The philosophy and ideas are perfectly balanced here, talking about the faith and truth required by soldiers. Faith in the soldier by your side, and faith that you cannot die. I particularly appreciate what Gesler brings to the discussion; the fact that faith in your commander is essentially what will give soldiers the other two faiths. There is a real difference then between someone like Tavore and someone like Whiskeyjack.

I am still involved with Martin's A Dance With Dragons, and author Douglas Hulick very kindly sent me a copy of his novel, Among Thieves, which I am anxious to read, so it looks like it will be a while longer before I return to my own Malazan re-read.  I still have yet to read The Crippled God, and I think a part of me just doesn't want to read it; doesn't want this remarkable series to be concluded.
