The Well at the World’s End Volume II

The Well at the World’s End Volume II

Considering The Well at the World's End was split into two volumes arbitrarily, it's not worth reiterating what I said in my post on Volume I.  No time passes between the volumes, and the quest for the Well picks up right where it left off.  What is worth mentioning, however, is how great the book continues to be.

Without the surprise of the language, or the need to grow accustomed to it, I had a great time reading Volume II.  Unfortunately, there's really no good way for me to explain what exactly I liked so much without spoiling specific moments.  Of course the experience of reading it would still be great, even if you knew everything that happens, but that's no reason to spoil such a great tale.

If, as I hope is the case, I've convinced you that you should read this book, but you don't have a friend or family member you can borrow it from, I have some great news.  You can actually download The Well at the World's End for free thanks to Project Gutenberg.  You can even put it onto your iPhone, iPad, Kindle or any other eReader that will accept ePub files.  You officially have no excuse not to read this book.

Just in case there is any doubt, allow me to state my opinion clearly: I recommend this book.  It's a great adventure and the medieval language helps make it feel like an ancient story from a long lost age.  I honestly have no complaints.  Considering you can grab a copy for free online, there's no reason to not at least give this one a try.

I tested out previously unused functions on my Kindle and downloaded this FOR FREE!!! from Gutenberg. I am excited, not only for the book, but also for the discovery of a new capability! Free books, here I come.

I hope you enjoy this, but even if you don't, at least it didn't cost anything!

It's unbelievable how much stuff is available on Gutenberg, including a lot of classics.
