  1. This is one of the sickest things i have ever read And just to avoid misunderstandings, i mean sick in a best possible way Its not so much the language, there is no excessive swearing here And its not the gore all dough there is quite a bit of that here, too Its a strong feeling of unease that comes from every single thing here being twisted in some weird unpredictable some way There is Emancipor Reese.He is probably the only half decent person in this book He may be half decent, but i wouldn t [...]


  2. If you ve read Steven Erikson s third volume in his Malazan Book of the Fallen series, Memories of Ice, you may remember encountering three very eccentric characters among the Caravanserai the two necromancers, Bauchelain and Korbal Broach, and their manservant, Emancipor Reese Later in the novel, you might also recall that the Malazan Bridgeburner mage, Quick Ben, has a most interesting and intense meeting with Bauchelain and Korbal Broach at their house in Capustan, and oh what a scene it is W [...]


  3. Extensively Morbid and unashamedly violent yet deliciously comic Written by someone who s clearly loving every moment, a feeling that goes across to the reader and Erikson is surely at the top of his craft here The Healthy Dead and the Lees of Laughter s end well there s nothing to compare them to they are singular achievements They are pure genius They very much appear to be the machinations of a drunken, uninhibited quite insane mind And I quite loved them.


  4. Blood Follows We re introduced to Reece and his backstory Dark and okay.It was hilarious and pathetic at how he couldn t see that his wife was cheating on him The Lees of Laughter s End Greed can make people do stupid things and when all those stupid people are trapped on a ship in waters teeming with Dhenrabiyou get the idea The Healthy Dead A city where all and any vices are outlawedwhere children might be being eaten or are they


  5. So, here it is If you have read Memories of Ice or cough Orb, Sceptre, Throne, you would have all ready run into the titular characters of this collection of three novellas as well as their manservant, Emancipor Reese the Unlucky Perhaps you have wondered about these characters, perhaps not, but here are these novellas, any way The tone of these novellas are considerably lighter than that of the books in the main series Nothing, not the various threats, atrocities, crimes, etc are really taken s [...]


  6. My take on the three novellas in this collection.Blood FollowsThis is the first novella in the A Tale of Bauchelain and Korbal Broach series This is a secondary series to the Malazan Book of the Fallen , whereas The Malazan books are huge and epic, this book is a little murder mystery that shares the same world as The Malazan books Currently two of the books are available, but it s been three years since the second book I hope Steven continues this series as it s a nice departure from his epic w [...]



  7. Am scazut o stea din maximul de cinci din pricina numelor absolut aiuritoare ale personajelor din a treia povestire Alegerile onomastice ale lui Steven Erikson sunt in acest caz nefericite.


  8. Bauchelain, Korbal Broach and Emancipor Reese make cameo appearances during the siege of Capustan in Memories of Ice Malazan Book of the Fallen 3 There Quick Ben and Bauchelain cross sorcerous swords, and Quick unleashes half of his Warrens to escape the demonologist s trap As narrative goes, it s a spandrel, a meaningless episode made possible by the convergence of Erikson s Malazan story arc and the path of three favorite characters The scene in the book reminded me of an incident from my own [...]


  9. Here s a extract from my review, full link afantasyreader 2010 01 bauchelain and korbal broach reviewmlFor unknown reasons, the novellas are not in their release order in the omnibus I was really looking forward to reading these books novellas and since the individual editions were kind of hard to find at a reasonable price, this book came just at the right time Funny and impressive would be the words I choose to express my feeling after this wonderful read and here s why.To sums things up, Bloo [...]


  10. Umorismo negromanticoTre romanzi brevi Nel terzo, The Healthy Dead, il mondo fantastico e l umorismo negromantico presente anche nei due precedenti, sono piegati ai fini di una satira anacronistica del fanatismo salutista e dell intolleranza benintenzonata e bigotta Il pedale del paradossale e del grottesco rimane sempre premuto e il racconto diventa una vera e propria danse macabre.


  11. I enjoyed this collection of short stories and would recommend them to fans who have all ready read a few of his Malazan books To me these stories didn t really feel like they were set in the same world, but they did offer a nice change of pace to Erikson s usual massive volumes The humor was nice, if a bit morbid The hardest thing to get used to was the small chapeters Some were only 1 2 a page long I remember one chapter in The Crippled God that was 120 pages


  12. 7.5 10During the writing of the 10 volume epic series Malazan Book of the Fallen in a world where he and Ian C Esslemont made together Steven Erikson started writing some stories of shorter form, and, with his imagination being uncontrollable at the beginning of his literary career, what he created was something wholeheartedly both strange and special three unusual characters who managed to stand out with their own, very unique personalities as they showed and in their very brief appearance in M [...]


  13. I would give this 4 or even 5 starts, but the first tale wasnt as great as the second, and especially the third tale still great buy and another good book by Erikson, dont feel discouraged by three stars here


  14. Neskute n poveden t i na sebe navazuj c pov dky N co podobn ho bych si cht l p e st i o Pali ch most To by bylo super Ale nekromanti byli taky skv l I se sluhou.


  15. Three short stories that feature one of the most enduring and memorable duos in the series A Tale of the Malazan Book of the Fallen Bauchelain and Korbal Broach Necromancers with a taste for knowledge well really, what Necromancer isn t searching for knowledge It just isn t done in the normal fashion but rather in a manner that takes them down dark and quiet roads and ones that usually leave bodies behind With parts missing Because well, knowledge.Completely fun and delightfully dark, these wee [...]


  16. Ordinarily, I find humorous fiction difficult to get into I tend to roll my eyes than laugh, and a Terry Pratchett book holds the dubious record of being abandoned quicker than any other novel I have endeavored to enjoy That said, I was excited to read this collection of Steven Erikson s Bauchelain and Korbal Broach stories, which chronicle the darkly humorous misadventures of two murderous necromancers and their hapless elderly manservant.Having read some of the Malazan Book of the Fallen nove [...]


  17. El universo de Malaz es tan enorme y tan trabajado que da para lanzarse a g neros y experimentos como el de los relatos de Bauchelain y Korbal Broach Korbal Espita en la edici n en castellano de la saga y que salgan redondos Mientras que la mayor a de la saga principal es fantas a pica a un nivel apocal ptico y colosal en cuanto a los protagonistas implicados y su poder estas historias siguen a personajes que est n tarados en el mejor de los cosas o que en muchas ocasiones son malignos pero util [...]



  18. Apr s avoir lu Willfull Child, je devais lire plus de Erikson J ai h sit entre continuer Malazan ou commencer les aventure de Bauchelain et Korbal Boach L un est une s rie pique qui est norme et pleine de rebondissement et l autre l histoire de 2 n cromanciens qui voyage dans le monde de Malazan.Etant un recueille de petites histoires je me suis dit que a serait plus l ger et plus facile a lire, vu que je travaillais beaucoup pendant ce temps.R gle 1 de tout livre de Erikson, rien n est jamais l [...]


  19. These stories are on the dark side and are very detailed in the world I have really been enjoying the books with which I feel I should use sticky notes to help me remember who s who and who did what.The first story started out with me being confused for a little while But, once I got through it I understood what was going on In this first story you realize just how massive a world Erikson has created These stories are based in the same world as Erikson s epic series, of the Malazan Empire.There [...]


  20. Blood Follows 3 This tale gives us a little back story to how Emancipor Reese became manservant to Bauchelain Korbal Broach And we learn a little of what exactly Korbal does with his prized, collected body parts A simple straight forward tale No deeper meanings No foreshadowing Just a walk in the park w Bauchelain Korbal Broach DThe Lees of Laughter s End 3 Oh my Mostly, I m giving this tale 3 because it was well written, Erikson packed a lot into a short story But I am NOT a fan of slap stick [...]


  21. I had never read any of the books in the Malazan Empire series by Steven Erikson, but I was intrigued by the heroes anti heroes of these 3 novellas And Erikson didn t disappoint me Korbal Broach is rather Psychotic, while Bauchelain is a necromancer that I would give my life to NEVER, EVER meet But at the same time, these two thoroughly evil men along with manservant Emanciapator Reese are just so interesting to read about and besides, one is never quite sure that those whom they are fighting ag [...]


  22. First off, this is the first book I ve read by Steven Erikson It was passed on to me by a coworker of my husband Needless to say, I won t be forgetting this one The author just had so many new things to offer the reader.There were times when I felt like I was skipping over certain parts because the author uses so much detail, but then other times where I would have to stop and just reread a sentence because it was justwow I can t think of another way of saying it This was a gross, funny, interes [...]


  23. These collected tales of necromancers Bauchelain and Korbal Broach aren t so much about them as centered around them, but provide stupid amounts of entertainment nonetheless Gone is the emotional catharsis that is evident of Erikson s main series, The Malazan Book of the Fallen, and in its place is a absurdity on an epic scale, comedy in the stead of tragedy Imagine a Tehol and Bugg scene from Midnight Tides Now blow that scene up into a short novel and you have one of these tales Highly recomme [...]


  24. Set within the same world as his epic Malazan series, the Bauchelain and Korbal Broach books are the sillier, funnier, action filled cousins to the longer series The short stores build upon what is already known about these minor recurring characters two necromancers and their drug addled manservent and tend to focus on how a sequence of accidents and coincidences can combine to make a comical grand catastrophe.


  25. As several other reviewers have said, these three linked novellas are just plain fun to read The three central characters are well developed, and for Malazan fans there are a couple of intriguing additional pieces of information about the pantheon of Erikson s Malazan Book of the Fallen series I laughed out loud a number of times while reading, particularly at the travails of Gust Hobb in the second story Steven Erikson is not just a great fantasy writer, he s a great writer period.


  26. I missed you Steven Erikson After reading this, I remembered with great clarity why I loved your books, the world you created and your sense of humour.


  27. If after I finished Deadhouse Gates you were to tell me, one day, I d be holding a Steven Erikson book and laughing out loud with tears in my eyes, I would have punched you in the face That s how my mood was at the time I was tired, emotionally drained and I would probably think you were crazy And yet you would be right.This is an amazingly funny book I kid you not Written by this sadist Really, I am serious about this Of course, with Erikson nothing is ever easy This is not funny as in haha fun [...]


  28. Cred c editorii i au f cut o mare nedreptate lui Emancipor Mancy Reese c nd au numit colec ia doar dup cei doi necroman ieri sini trii, dar simpatici n felul lor Manservant ul lor e la fel de mult implicat n afacerile necurate ale acestora motiv pentru care i ajunge s consume nenum rate feluri de substan e calmante i anestezice, adic s fumeze droguri i s bea pe c t sunt i cei doi dar ce nu face omu ca s i ntre in nevasta i copiii d rui i de aceasta pe c nd el se afla de c iva ani pe mare ntre Ma [...]
