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

this is the most disappointing book from dragonlance series I have read so far, the character was such a whimp, a far cry from the heroes I have come across so far!! no wonder he is called the weasel! must admit the scorpion was the only interesting character in the book but for sure the pathfinder boys were awful!! hope I do not come across any of them again in any future reads!!

I cannot tell you how much I loved this book back in the day. I adored the Dragonlance world, and had been feeling the let-down of book after book not written by Weis and Hickman that seemed to sort of only half-exist in the world they'd created.

Weasel's Luck changed that - it's wonderful, the character was so darn witty and funny, and the story itself was captivating. My teen self was head-over-heels crushed out on the guy, and to this day I can remember the omen dice, that awesome one-liner a

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

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.

I am a bit undecided about this book. Though it was very well-written, the main character (as he is written in this novel) just rubs me the wrong way.

Once again, Michael Williams has wow'ed me with his amazing descriptions. It's like I am running around with the characters, and that makes any story more real for me and more enjoyable.

But this time around, I found myself wanting to smack Galen at times. I think (if I remember correctly) that he is seventeen or eighteen in this story, but most of
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

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
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

Volver al Krynn, el mundo de la Dragonlance siempre es un placer. Esta historia es entretenida y tiene unos personajes muy bien definidos. El principio es un poco lento y le sobran unas páginas, pero está muy bien narrada y no se hace pesada. El final me ha gustado mucho y si le quito una estrella es porque te lo venden en la sinopsis como un libro divertido y humorístico y a mí, al menos, no me ha hecho mucha gracia.
Bernard Campbell
Not as good as the others in the Heroes trilogy it is still a decent read and provides a good simple story that tells us more about the real world of Krynn.
Not a favourite it still is a good read.

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.

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.

I was never a reader of epic fantasy... and then I discovered the Dragonlance books and never looked back.
