    1. James LafayetteTivendale on said:

      We should forgive our enemies, but not before they are hanged Heinrich Heine Before They Are Hanged is Abercrombie s second entry into the twisted and grim world of The First Law It follows on from the three story arcs that The Blade itself stylishly led towards Bayaz, the first of the Magi is venturing to the end of the Earth with his bizarre collection of distinctive personnel for reasons unbeknown to all apart from the Mage himself Superior Glokta has traveled South to infiltrate the politics [...]

      Glokta is an excellent torturer Some would even say the best, but somewhere down his crooked path he made some rather nasty enemies Such is lifeSo, as a polite death sentence, he gets sent on a mission that is suicidal and near impossible to complete Anybody else would fail However, this is Sand Dan Glockta the most ingenious torturer and manipulator to ever wear the Union s colours You can t simply get rid of him His enemies have made a terrible mistake in underestimating him Physically, he is [...]

      okay enough with the reviews and comments from folks saying that there aren t any likeable characters in this series what we have here are 1 a barbarian with a heart of gold sure, he can turn into a mass murdering psychopath when pressed, but my gosh, that doesn t happen too often 2 an ex slave who lives to destroy her former abusers yes, she s grouchy savage suspicious of everyone, particularly white people do you blame her she was a former slave, abused and raped repeatedly come on 3 a centuri [...]

      While Superior Glokta holds Dagoska against the Gurkish, Collum West endures untold hardship in the north in the companion of the Prince and Logen s six barbarian friends Meanwhile, Bayaz, Logen, Luthar, and Nessa head toward the edge of the world for something that should best be left buriedAs Elizabeth said in her review of The Two Towers, middle books in a trilogy are tricky business While you occasionally get one the literary equivalent of The Empire Strike Back, most of them are like Templ [...]

    5. Dirk Grobbelaar on said:

      Don t write off the fantasy tropes just yet, all you unbelievers This trilogy shows that there is still an enormous amount of life left in some of them This dark sequel to The Blade Itself is everything I hoped it would be I would be hard pressed to select a favourite out of the multiple plot threads featured in Before They Are Hanged, but I m probably partial to the sequences featuring the Named Men Again, there is an old school sense of wonder to this novel, despite the modern fantasy grittine [...]

      4.5 With Characters Like These Who Worries About the Plot Stars Buddy read with Athena, Alexa,Ashley, Eon, Anasylvia and MichelleThe Blade Itself was a complete character study without a lot of plot, Before They Are Hanged has a little plotting involved but for me it was still all about the characters I travelled with them, I worried for them, I hoped for the best even in the midst of the worst and at the end I m left wondering how they will ever get out of the complete mess they are all in.Glo [...]

      The fun continues I give a high rating due to its page turning storytelling, dark humour, fight battle scenes, and characters Especially characters There are new interesting characters made first appearance on this book view spoiler For example Nicomo Cosca and Caul Shivers They will have important roles on Best Served Cold You ll love Cosca although he is an unreliable drunkard hide spoiler But as book two of a trilogy serial, the plots are still far from finish At least some questions mysteri [...]

      Having waited nearly two years to delve back into this series, I was a bit concerned about picking up the thread of the storyline without becoming overly confused Surprisingly, that never proved to be much of an issue at all a true sign of a well written tale Another surprising revelation was that I enjoyed most all the characters this time around, which was one of my big complaints from book one I basically hated two of the points of view in that one Jezal was such an insufferable snob, but not [...]

    10. Joshua on said:

      Say one thing for Joe Abercrombie, say that he s a hell of a writer With this, he proves that he earned his status as a Named Man of fantasy This picks up where TBI left off, and carries the characters and plot away in new and unpredictable directions There s political intrigue, betrayal, torture, fights galore, broken hearts and twisted limbs, love, sex, laughs, and going back to the mud I don t want to give anything away, so I ll refrain from talking about the travails of Collem West in Anglan [...]

      Joe really shines when it comes to his characters, his writing and his style His characters are what makes the book so enjoyable, with lots of funny cynical moments A few times while reading the book I just felt like saying haha, I like this character, he she is super awesome Joe s style is unique, and that s what I like in his books, he can write a great book without pulling off lots of sophisticated tricks plot wise.There s plot here in comparison to the first book the first 30% was another e [...]

    13. Evgeny on said:

      This book picks up right where the previous one left In fact, the only reason to split this tale between two books I see was the length There are three major plot lines in here.The first one is a defense by Union forces of its northern territory against an invasion by barbarians united by a ruthless and cunning leader The Union has an advantage in numbers, but the majority of its soldiers are ill equipped peasants who never wielded any weapons in their lives The high command of Union consists of [...]

      Guys This book is so awesomely non clich I can t even Ok, first let s put some context into why I loved this so much So I m working like crazy and barely have time to read than 1 hour each day, so reading these in slow doses over 1 month has been such a treat I would come back every day eager to jump into my pajamas and spend some time with Glokta, Logen and Jezal and see what those bastards are up to today.Can we take a second to applaud character development done at its finest and when I say [...]

      4.85 starsI like reading fantasies well enough but was never too keen on those being termed as High Epic Fantasies considering them not my cuppa or so I thought I am glad to be wrong in this instance This series is well into my favourites re reads shelf My only regret is that I took so many months to finish this one off, no fault of the book just my capricious infidelities towards books O.OP.S Glokta No words needed

    17. ChopinFC on said:

      Full review 5 Stars Abercrombie does it again Before They Are Hanged is a superb follow up series with fantastic characters devious plots and schemes and volatile action that does not stop until the very end This book is an incredible achievement for a sopho series Picture you live in a world much like the medieval times, with large castles and rustic brick roads and villages, where magic both pure and innocent as well as dark and omnipotent are found in the deep confines of the world Imagine th [...]

      Here we go Welcome to round two of The First Law Trilogy My lovely chocolate asortie of anti heroes or as I m starting to think of it The Sand dan Glokta or how I still spell it in my head one out of ten timesGlotka Saga I love this guy He s the epitome of all anti heroes, and a delight to read.In the first book, almost all roads save for Logen s badass ex crew of Named Men led us to Adua In the second novel the characters scatter towards different sides of the world.Logen You have to be realist [...]

      Joe Abercrombie has given me what I enjoy most in a novel character growth and development.It has me on the edge of my seat to see those jerks from THE BLADE ITSELF learn and grow a brain, a spine and a heart.Superior Glokta, the heartless cripple who tortures others and has no mercy or remorse, is growing a heart He is starting to care about whether the confessions he tortures out of people are true or not He is sparing certain people s lives when before he wouldn t have hesitated to kill them [...]

      Oh sir, Mr.Abercrombie Good to have you back The Blade Itself was fantastic You re right, of course But now we have to decide on the sequel Naturally, may I suggest looking into plots this time I suppose, having cool characters isn t enough It certainly is great, but having them do cool stuff with a purpose would be even better Well, if you say so So what kind of story is popular Hm, CSI or NCIS What s that Sounds like learning to spell in Sesamestreet No, they re tv shows about crime and murder [...]

    21. ~Dani~ LazyTurtle's Books on said:

      Read this review and listen to the podcast discussion at Book Geeks Uncompromised.I liked this book better than the first.Where The Blade Itself seemed fairly directionless to me, this one seemed to have actually going on Looking back, it seems like The Blade Itself was almost entirely just setting the stage for the story to actually begin And I appreciate the time taken to get everything just right to be able to tell the story I have to say though that this one actually having bigger conflicts [...]

      Pa da se vratimo malo recenzijamaDa li postoje savrsene knjige Naravno da postoje.Da li je ovo jedna od takvih I te kako.Abercrombie je uspeo da nadmasi sebe i napise jos bolji nastavak.Ako smo u prvom delu imali malo manje fantastike, ovde je i to ispravljeno Carobnjaci, drevni gradovi, put na kraj sveta, natprirodna bica, svega ovde ima Svega Humora, jos vise Jos boljeg U pojedinim trenucima sam se toliko smejao da vise nisam znao da li citam ep fantastiku ili komediju.Scene izmedju Logena i F [...]

    23. Phrynne on said:

      Middle books in trilogies are often pretty average Not so this one This one is brilliant Several separate story lines run parallel throughout the book and each one features strong characters so I never minded switching back from one to another Having said that Superior Glokta has to be one of the best characters ever written Despite the fact that he is deformed, merciless and totally evil he makes some of the most entertaining comments and you just have to like him I should comment here that I l [...]

    24. Dragan Medić on said:

      Well none of our heroes have been hung yet That s the first out of many good things in this book I can t get away from the comparison with SOIAF once again Not delving into similarities and differences too much, in my humble opinion and only having read two of Abercrombies books so far, these two are the best epic fantasy series ever Sorry Wheel of Time fans There is one massive difference though, while Martin creates this beautiful, enormous, diverse world through his wast amount of characters [...]

    25. Carol. on said:

      Anyone can face ease and success with confidence It is the way we face trouble and misfortune that defines us I thoroughly enjoyed this book BTAH continues to follow the troop of reluctant heroes, including Ninefingers, Jezel, Bayaz and Ferro Inquisitor Glokta, defending a besieged city and hunting for a traitor and Colonel West working to defend Angland against the Northman, along with a small band of Northmen with grudges of their own In that sense, it s very much the second book in a trilogy, [...]

      Usually it s such a drag to review a middle of the trilogy book Yeah, the characters that were introduced in the first book did some things, developed some shit, made progress on whatever journey, yadda yadda yadda, we ll see what happens in the next one That is so NOT the case with this book series, that perhaps the case itself should be overturned.Man, but J Aber best nickname ever, thank you makes characters you LOVE Even the ones you don t like very much And boy oh boy, is there some charact [...]

    27. Helen on said:

      Joe Abercrombie is fast becoming my new fantasy god After loving The Blade Itself, I immediately started reading this one, and was a little worried that I would be disappointed Turns out I was wrong I was very, very wrong This book is even better than the first book, something I would not have thought possible I want this book to have my babies However, I m going to hold off on sleeping with it, in case book 3 is better still On second thought, screw it, if book 3 is even better than book 2, I l [...]

    28. Jim on said:

      Everything I wrote about the first book holds true in this one except it s better Even the horses are better done, a pleasant surprise The characters politics were even better developed There are now better hints at what all the fuss is about I m definitely going to listen to the third book soon The narration is good, if a bit slow, but that s easily solved The voices of the characters are very well done The only thing that annoys me is that Abercrombie is very fond of using he grimaced the narr [...]

    29. Nate on said:

      The exposition, setup, and introductions are long past and we re left with 500 pages of brutal, cynical and witty fun This book hit the ground running and never looked back for me All the characters are deep into the shit and there s absolutely no light at the end of the tunnel, which is how Abercrombie fans want it Whatever you liked about The Blade Itself is gonna be here in spades Even the quest storyline I wasn t particularly into at the start turned out awesomely One of the things I love ab [...]
