    1 thought on “Conrad's Quest for Rubber

    1. This was the worst book of the series for me.Leo takes the last couple of books and retells basically the same story from the view of a peasant who was at Okoitz and then joins the army, re-hashing the highlights of the other books.Unfortunately for me, the magic was gone. I remember readign this book years ago and thinking it was just okay - but on reading it again I wasn't even able to finish it. It just got to be too boring.I will miss you Leo Frankowski. I really liked the Conrad series, and [...]

    2. This book is very little about Conrad (who, by this point in the series isn't all that likeable or interesting anyway), but does take place in the world. I was pleasantly surprised by this book and it felt the author was back in the game and enjoying writing the series again. The plot is interesting and the sense of exploration is really fun.What I didn't find as interesting was the introduction of the sexbot, and most especially how unrealistic the reactions of the characters to her. Throughout [...]

    3. I'll say I was the least disappointed by this book of the past few in the series. It's interesting and exciting in places, what with the exploration and all the adventure which that entails.The first third of the book is a review of the prior three, which one assumes was the author's attempt to familiarize us with the new narrator-character. Unfortunately his personality is essentially the exact same as that of Conrad, so it's generally just a bore. The ending of the book is utterly ridiculous, [...]

    4. I have to say, the first few books in this series was pretty good. But the longer i read this series the more the main character seams like a idiot. What got to me about this book is the main character doesn't even make a appearance until nearly 160+ pages into the book (Ebook format, 160 out of 487 pages). Another thing that really annoyed me was the fact we basically have to reread the first few books, just told from someone else s perspective. No new material for all practical purposes. This [...]

    5. the Deus ex machina aspects of this series are starting to become somewhat annoying. Like many authors of series, the first one or two are truly novel and fun, the later ones are "turn the crank and cash the paycheck". I am reminded of Piers Anthony who wrote "A Spell for Chameleon" and then wrote a series of increasingly lame pun-themed sequels.

    6. Second book in a row where Leo lets another POV retell most of the previous books with only slightly different words, it's quite annoying and I have to admit I skimmed quickly though most of it. The rest of the story was definitely weaker than the previous more repetitive and even more unbelievable, this is where I leave the series, RIP Conrad.

    7. Incredibly good series. The baisc man-out-of-time story line but very involved. Excellent characters and story. Highly recommended.

    8. A few good things, but mostly a don't bother. The new pygmy wife was kinda disturbing/strange sexually.
