    I'm currently reading Magician by Raymond Feist, and I cannot see why it's so popular. I'm finding the book to be very boring and badly written. The writting style is so simplistic that I could have written this book years ago when I was in the 8th grade. I also don't find the story to be that interesting. I'm currently on the part where Pug and Thomas have been split up on their journey, and Thomas is staying with the Dwarves. I want to know if the story gets better later on, or if it's pretty much the same thing, and I should just stop reading now?

    Uhm. Well.

    I would at least keep going untill Pug breaks out of slavery (you'll understand once you get there). I loved it, but then I'm a fantasy freak. If you prefer more action rest assured that the fighting get's more intense.

    I never was really able to warm to Feist; I read one book of his, the first Pug book. It wasn't bad, but... eh, didn't grab my attention.
