Sharps - K.J. Parker Despite the fact that I have been interested in reading KJ Parker’s novels for a while now, I never really got the chance to pick one up. However, now that I have read Sharps, I can safely say that I'm not sure I will be reading more from this author, if this work is anything to go by (I'll give him one more try to convince me...).

I had a few nagging issues. The plot seemed somewhat contrived. The character's behaviour looked to me a bit far-fetched, to say the least. That's enough for me to loose interest in a book...Even a fantasy book must have a certain degree of verisimilitude. Suspension of disbelief only goes so far...I had the same problem with Patrick Rothfuss' The Name of the Wind". But in Rothfuss' case it was even worst. That's why I only read the first volume, The Kingkiller Chronicle: Day One, but it was a real chore.
