Most of its occupants were taken there as boys and for years have endured the brutal regime of the Lord Redeemers whose cruelty and violence have one singular purpose—to serve in the name of the One True Faith. In one of the Sanctuary's vast and twisting maze of corridors stands a fourteen-year-old boy. He has long-forgotten his real name, but is now called Thomas Cale. He is strange and secretive, witty and charming, violent and profoundly bloody-minded. He is so used to the cruelty that he seems immune, but soon he will open the wrong door at the wrong time and witness an act so terrible that he will have to leave this place, or die. His only hope of survival is to escape across the arid Scablands to Memphis, a city the opposite of the Sanctuary in every way: breathtakingly beautiful, infinitely Godless, and deeply corrupt. But the Redeemers want Cale back at any price.

I just finished it and I thought it was extremely good. Although it dragged at some parts overall it was very intriguing and ended way before i wanted it to. I am greatly anticipating the release of the sequels. Does anyone know what the first sequel will be titled, so that i may keep an eye out for it.
There is a map in the book I've got but if it somehow misses from other editions it's here http: I've just started the book and so far I'm enjoying it very much. It's enticing and different, plus it already has me online snooping around for information.
Most reviews I have read have usually picked on this book for it's "lack of identity" or how it defies 'classification'. My question is, is this really a liability? Maybe the fact that it's type is so unusual and surprising should be something to be commended. After all, if it was book easy to define and classify, then there's nothing new and exciting about that is there? I like the idea of reading something that doesn't smoothly fit in to our predefined ideas of what books should be.
Then again, I've only read the first part of the book. Time will tell? I find this very interesting to read. Just as the majority here, I found myself puzzled with the paradoxicalities within the novel.
I won't be discussing the intended audience for this novel. At first glance, one could be confused by the anachronistic nature of The Left Hand.
Yet, if one digs deeper and incorporates the influences that have led to this book see the Acknowledgements, but also movies such as 'The Gladiator', etc , the oppositions could be clarified. Firstly, the anachronisms. One could also argue that this landscape is a recovered post-apocalyptic one, where the redeemers have held a purgatorial cleansing and where all was swept off the face of the earth.
Then the smoking, the ruling of the government, the diplomatic nature and the variety of independent institutes have survived, but some things had to be re-invented or re-gained. Such as medical knowledge, gesture language, etc… In this view the hanged-believer a paradox on this Christian belief could be seen as a new saviour.
Secondly, the notion religion. This notion is a rather ambivalent one. On the one hand, it renders all arguments useless. On the other hand, it is the core around which the story revolves. I have to dig into the novel a bit more to find out what is really intended.
Is he making a new religion like Yoda in the UK? Is he making fun of the Christian belief in his protestant background? Is he predicting a religious apocalypse? Is he not making fun of the Christian religion, but of the Islam — in the sense of the new atheists? Then again, this novel does not show us any proud atheist belief?
I just finished it and i was really bored during the last battle becasue it was a total copy of Bernard Cornwell's book "Azincourt" that describes a battle in the 15th century between the English bowmen and the Frankish armored men-at-arms.
The book was average with only a small amount of adventure and bloody battles. I liked the rimes used by IddrisPukke but still Actually the copying has been done by everyone who wrote about Azincourt including Mr. Cornwell - Mr.
Hoffman indicates some of his sources in The Last Four Things and he used a lot of references but I am pretty sure they are mostly classics. Hi Lydia! The second book is called "The Last Four Things". The US version comes out on August 4, This book is an excellent piece of fantasy art! I really do not understand your complains about the world Hoffman invented.
Why does it matter if the things are "mixed"?! I mean why should it follow a strict line when dealing with history? The book does not have even one boring part, it does not slow down even for a moment, while it stays completely unpredictable.
With the described kind of knife, he was killing prisoners in a death camp. I was so disappointed when I turned the last page! Was hoping it's 'to be continued' So hopefully by the time I finish reading the 2nd one, the last book will be available! So looking forward to it. Timeframe and my train of thoughts might not make sense, but I bought The Left Hand of God late last year i. Ive read all these comments but I must taking crazy pills!
The map makes absolutely no sense when taking with the directions in the book. Like the redeemer's eastern front. According to the map that would be with memphis but clearly its indicated that its not. ON the map its south. Why even include a map if your going to simply ignore it. Anyway the map still is one of the best art-drawn ive seen in fantasy novels in quite some time.
The recognizable place names and references like in religion also confused me. Is this the distant past of earth, the distant future or even earth at all? That was a good confusion though. But please Mr. Hoffman your compass is broken! I thought the first book was excellent, and hard to put down. Sure it's full of maddening idiosyncrasies, like the place names which he pulls from all over the place.
As a fellow Brit though, I can totally see the Author's wry sense of humour coming through in the absolute randomness of the place name selection. I recognized a lot of the more minor place names as coming from small English towns and villages that I know.
The more interesting aspect of this book for me though, was in the sub-text of the influence it derived from the Author's schooling in a strict Catholic environment. I also attended a positively medieval private school in England, and was exposed to many of the privations and terrors that provided the inspiration for this book. I am also of the same generation of the author, so found that the book worked on a very personal level for me. The second book in the trilogy was, however, a big disappointment, with little of the thrilling cliff-hanger scenes or quirkiness of the first book.
It seemed like it had been rushed out in order to cash in on the hubris of the first book's success.
