Read from September 25 to November 10, 2011

It was... alright, I guess. Nothing stellar, nothing very much enjoyable, actually I'm somewhat disappointed. After hearing a lot about this being a must-read for fantasy fans, part of the classics and so forth, I was expecting something better.

The characters are alright, but the plots tend to be somewhat muddled and rather uninspired perhaps. Can't exactly put my finger on it, but there weren't many times when I said "that is cool" or "Ok, this is interesting". I had to force myself through the book more than not, though it is an enjoyable read, only "meh".

Recommended only for fans of the genre.

The first chapter was something of a challenge to get through, but the last one was quite enjoyable."

Piotr Żygadło co to jest?

Krzysztof Ponoć klasyka Amerykańskiego Sword & Sorcery, widziałem wymienionego autora i cykl w dwóch niezależnych źródłach jako coś co każdy fantasta powinien znać. Zapowiada się na bardziej humorystycznego i swobodnego Conana, ale nie skończyłem jeszcze nawet pierwszego wątku, więc ciężko wyrokować.
