THE GODS ARE BASTARDS

From a political opponent

By Minichirops, member

Feb 28, 2019: Excessively well written.

I can’t speak highly enough of his world-building—he merges pop culture and deeply classical fantasy, and mixes in enough humor to annoy anyone sitting next to me while I read his work.

I disagree strongly with the author on some of his political views, which are made quite clear in his comment sections, and in some of the ideologies of his characters. The opposition is lightly touched upon at best, and demonized at worst. But I still have to like him, because his characters show integrity and ethic and are generally too compelling to find fault with.

It isn’t common to find someone who can fail to portray both sides fairly, on the side opposite your own views, that can also keep you coming back for more. This is a good writer, and probably a good person, whose basic intelligence and decency shine through his work.

On the off chance you ever read this, D. D. Webb, you’re an excellent writer, and I hope your career continues even after this serial comes to its inevitable, majestic, conclusion.

THE GODS ARE BASTARDS

Story with potential but i didn’t like the characters

By robertotest26, member

Feb 16, 2019: I wil say this, the author has talent, the world has some interisting concepts that i like. The aproach that the problems can be solve with a diferent solution besides violence is always welcome plus decisions have ramifications. Also that the characters have their flaws so they can grow throught out the tale is good too.

Having said that, I didn’t quite actually like it, the only character that i loved was the thieve priest. The moments were i truly enjoyed the story was when he was the mc. I stoped, lets say, in the resolution of an arc that ends with the paladin making mandatory to her order to offer refuge to all women (i don’t want to give spoilers).

I didn’t like the story because the way of thinking of most characters was to much teenager. There were a few hipocrite statements that no one seems to point out.

I understand also that the author has this flaws or lies in the main cast way of thinking so we can emphatize with them and see them overcome their shortcomings in the story, but god i can’t read 15 volumes so then i can start liking the main cast!!. He is so good in that, that i can hardly like any character.

The paladin is to narrow thinking, the priest is to passive (to many times he was more like an extra), the half demon was decent but i don’t know why the author makes him act dumb so repetidly, there is also a few instances where he could point out flaws in others arguments and perspectives but for some reason he didn’t. In his group he is the more likely character to do it besides the pirate. The bard and the drow to engrossed in their own fiction of reality respectively. The pirate interesting but less time in the reflector than paladin. etc

The only character that i truly like was the thieve priest but he appears to little to make me push through till the good part
