Satan is a great literary character. Could be epic.

The book grew out of his study of philosophy while creating The Good Place, so it makes perfect sense to me.Seems like he'd lead with being a creator of The Office and his legendary portrayal of Mose Schrute.

I’m glad you liked it. Reasonably criticism.Finished Lions of Al-Rassan couple days ago. Thanks for the reco!
I'm not sure I would classify this as "Fantasy" even, even if the world isn't Earth. This is not a complaint. I liked the book quite a lot.
Regarding comparison to Rothfuss. I'm going to read some more Kay before I decide, and he is a lovely writer, but I still think Rothfuss' prose is superior. Honestly the first chapter (weirdly) of Lions was a bit staccato and I was almost put off. It got much better. Very poignant towards the end.
My one complaint about Lions is that I think in the end there are just a few too many "AHA! Not who you thought!" moments.
I also felt slightly cheated from the emotional payoff of Diego's fate being suddenly reversed. I get that part of the story centers around miraculous doctors, but Jehane doesn't even perform the miracle! And then we never see Diego again?
