On the other hand going into such complete development probably would have at least doubled the length of the novel and I would have probably been now complaining about its length and slow going.
I certainly would have been complaining if that was included. Tedious detail and world building is one of the the reasons I stay away from this genre.

This book is one of my favorites and I'm also not much of a fantasy reader. Maybe it's just me but this book seemed to have a faster pace compared to his others.
Not explaining everything allowed for the faster pace, I'm happy with that tradeoff. It also opened up the opportunity for my own imagination to fill in the gaps. Mind the Gap!
