My first real introduction to Sci Fantasy, 14 Jan 2013
I was introduced to the Amber series at in 1979 (age 9)when I read the whole, original series without sleep, or pause and was then hooked for life. I appreciate it is not the best, or most sophisticated but, the books have a great plot and are page-turners. I introduced it to my oldest daughter at age 9 and she did not come out her room until she finished the whole series...like father, like daughter. I enjoy the premis of the shadows and the intermix between Sci-fi and fantasy, in a genre which has become mainstream and adapted since RZ wrote this series. Being a serious scifi and fantasy reader, I still look back on this series with fondness. If you are looking for well written imagary, intelligence, an ability to appreciate subtlety. and style you could do a lot worse.
