really liked it
bookshelves: for-pleasure

The few things in this book I couldn't compare directly to Tolkien could be compared directly to Paolini (who has, himself, borrowed a lot), Lewis, Rowling, and even Star Wars. Nonetheless, it was a fun read. Once I got over the distraction of the parallels, I enjoyed it - I actually made a game of making sure I could make all of the proper connections. :P I recommend this if you've no problem with a little lack of originality - it's like hearing all the great fantasy stories reborn and combined, with subtle differences.
