5.0 out of 5 stars Epic fantasy, 31 Aug 2009
It seems this book tends to divide people. I happen to love it. Like Mythago wood, its an epic blend of fantasy, psychology, and myth. There are romantic themes that are touching without being sentimental or overwrought. Characters are likeable and complex. A stunning and original book, highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars A tad bland, 6 May 2008
I honestly don't get the hype for this guy, what little there may be. His writing is compenent in a workmanlike way, but just that.

The way they go about this is by interviewing people. One after another. Most have nothing useful to say. Then one of them does. How to follow up on the new lead? Interview more people. Again, most have nothing to say. Progress is made incrementally and the whole thing feels like the author's joyous attempt at "running us through our paces" before getting to the real… Read more
