The Knowledge Smith

 

Latest book by Hal Robinson, author of The Journey of Wolfgang Apprentice, and the last book to be released before The Brotherhood Octology.

 

Brief Synopsis

 

Aardnarsh has died, and his eighteenth wife Marika is rummaging through his notes left after his Aardnarsh's Compendium. She stumbles upon strange documents showing secrets of his longevity and cleanliness.

She undertakes a journey to Affenlichtbaum, where he bought cheese, and by following his footsteps she learns the true meaning of marriage.

 

Discussion and Spoilers

 

Do not buy it

 

Most of the book is rubbish. No, seriously - it is. Apparently Hal Robinson is going through divorce, but this is not a reason to make Marika a perfect wife, compared to other twenty two (no, that's not a mistake). Chapters from 12 to 55 are nothing more than a grim opinion on 'the bints' that manipulate men to their own gains, take their cars away and kick dogs.

One of the former wives of Aardnarsh is Camille, the Ice queen. Har har. In fact, name of the mr. Robinson's wife is used four more times: Quamila the Dog-Woman; Cmila, the village fooless who was strangely infatuated with Aarnarsh; the girl that fallen from a cliff had a name beginning with 'cam-', and the prostitute Marika encounters is named Kamilla.

 

Sons of Aardnash, despite the former advertisement do not appear in the novel.

 

For Hierarchs's sake, don't buy this book!

Are you familiar with the phrase 'product defamation'?

Most cases of product defamation require a finding of "malice" in the alleged libel. There is no such element present in our wiki, and we can all take care to make sure our opinions are put in the "Discussion" elements of a page rather in the main body. However, thank you for your concern, Tyge.
