Read it to finish off the series, but to me this series really went off the rails with Toll the hounds onward. Lot of unresolved storylines, characters being killed in narratively unsatisfying ways, and many of the "rules" of the world being changed arbitrarily.

Its a massive tome and gets bogged down in the middle. The conclusion is worth the long march through the desert.

I started reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen almost 10 years ago when I first moved to St. Albert. The one thing that really struck me from the series was the fact that Erikson was not afraid of really attaching you to characters and events...and then utterly destroying them. Everything was for keeps. But all of that being said, I can't help but feel that in the end, the series suffered from the "Lost" syndrome. He brought in so many storylines and characters but many of them just seemed to drift away. Perhaps that's by design as much of the background of Malazan world is hazy at best, but I was hoping for more closure.

And now the page before us blurs.
An age is done. The book must close.
We are abandoned to history.
Raise high one more time the tattered standard of the Fallen. See through the drifting smoke to the dark stains upon the fabric.
This is the blood of our lives, this is the payment of our deeds, all soon to be forgotten.
We were never what people could be.
We were only what we were.
