5.0 out of 5 stars Heroes Die, 31 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Heroes Die (Mass Market Paperback)
I can say, without a trace of doubt, that Matthew Woodring Stover is the best writer I've ever had the pleasure to read, being Heroes Die (and the whole Acts of Caine series) his absolute masterpiece.
Since the very first line, until the last word, this book will take your breath away. Its characters are so charismatic and complex, so full of flaws, you'll sometimes laugh at the fact that in a way this fantasy novel is way more realistic than any other book. As for Caine, the main character, one can't help "loving all of him, even when he has to hate some of him", as Faulkner would say.
Besides, its full of humor as well as philosophy. The author knows how to deal with both tragedy and comedy, at the same time he raises questions that make you think.
To those who love reading adventure books, and to those who simply like reading good books, this is the one. You won't be dissappointed.
