I only read the first story and didn't finish it, just skimmed the end. It was very convoluted and the writing did not seem equal to what it was attempting to accomplish. This was a frustrating read.
Ok i am sure there has been a lot said about this book but generally its a decent read just you can tell it was intended as being part of something bigger. The back ground story is hardly touched on and really for the sake of the 3 tales here are little more than devices to explain the situation the characters are in right now.

The book is a really neat concept, both in the story and the way it was constructed (with both pictures and text). However, I wasn't a fan of the writing. Tad Williams should have wrote this himself, instead of just editing it. Regardless, though, I can't knock it too much because it was an enjoyable read.
Enjoyed the writing and the exuberant artwork, but not sure I want this to become the standard of printwork (pun intended) for novels.
