Admittedly, Weasel’s Luck is very funny at times, and written surprisingly well. It certainly reads quickly enough, but the superfluous humour and the childishness of the protagonist eventually annoyed me. I disliked Weasel/Galen, which is a problem (he is after all the narrator of this story). He is a despicable, selfish, snivelling, cowardly and ridiculous boy. This is exactly what the author was going for, no doubt. He is seventeen but acts like he’s four. By the time that the book takes a tu...more

One of the better Dragonlance books out there -- in fact, I tend to think of Chronicles, Legends, Heroes, and Tales as the only really worthy sets of Dragonlance books that were written.
Galen Pathwarder, not so affectionately referred to as Weasel, is the third son of a noble family of Solomnic Knights (think uber honorable and a bit uptight). He isn't the son his father always wanted. Instead he lies, cheats, and occasionally sets something on fire. His older brothers aren't much better. The oldest is rather stupid and is always up to no good, while the middle brother seems to be some sort of a priest or monkish type, always meditating and trying to live among the animals.

Ok. First I want to say it was really nice to be back in Krynn again. William's captured a lot of the atmosphere that is characteristic of a world that have had many enjoyable adventures in.

After saying that, I have to say did not particularly enjoy this story. It starts out a solid enough "coming of age" tale for a Solamnic boy no one expects much of. Has a nice "solve the curse" plot. But, I just can't find myself liking Galen. He's really a. . . weasel and kind of unpleasant and even if the s...more
This story was pretty fun. I enjoyed it. =) Fantasy lovers will like this book. =)
Niente di innovativo. Non è scritto male, però non riesce a caratterizzare i personaggi o per meglio dire il personaggio, perché vuole cercare di caratterizzare un stonfo il protagonista, vuole farlo sembrare un furbone, codardo. Passa tutto il tempo a dire che si rintana ovunque, che cerca ogni scappatoia e poi all'ultimo c'è il cambio di frontiera, diventa un paladino che non ha paura di nulla? Caratterizza un po', spiega un attimo l'evoluzione che c'è stata nella sua testa no? Tant'è che lo r...more

I loved Weasel's Luck from the start. The characters were adorably dorky, full of life and, what I liked most, never perfect. Weasel is a coward of the worst part but he knows it and he doesn't mind it and it made me love him. I laughed my way through the book, but I mourned the deaths too and ate my way through the book like it was chocolate.

The plot wasn't realistic at all, but it doesn't pretend to be either - crazy things happened and that was simply the way of it. Williams has a type of hum...more
One word: Daring. This book is very different from the lot of D&D books, not just Dragonlance books. If you like a fresh perspective, then this might be just the thing for you. I found it not too bad. It's told from the point of view of the titular character - a weasel. And this protagonist is a selfish, self-serving, and manipulative coward. This story is about his adventure as a squire - or rather, his misadventure. I kept thinking he'll grow up and change, but on hindsight, that would've...more

Pleasant enough, although the recurring skirmishes between the three brothers wears thin after a while.

Also tiresome is the final part of the book, which comes across a bit too stilted, feeling more like a Dungeons & Dragons game - each paragraph seeming to correspond to a roll of the dice - and less like an actual story with flow or dynamic.

A delightful read. An adventurous romp. Sir Brightblade is determined to make a hero out of Galen Pathwarden AKA Weasel, even if it kills him.
This is the first Dragonlace novel I ever read and the book that hooked me into the Dungeon and Dragons universe.
I love this book so much, which is why I belive this is the 3rd or 4th time I have read it. Weasel is such a cool chacter. I love the way he changes by the end of the book.
Andrew Uys
Initially not a fan of these characters, cause the storyline didn't feature any of the "main group" of characters, I really enjoyed this book in the end.
A cowardly character finds himself in the midst of a fantastical adventure. Lame wink-wink genre tropes abound.
Carl Mann
bord the crap out of me ,in the end it got good.
This is the one book in the world I might actually hate.
