OK - it doesn't suit everyone,
This review is from: The Runes Of The Earth (The Last Chronicles of Thomas Covenant) (GOLLANCZ S.F.) (Mass Market Paperback)
Having just read through the book for the first time - and I will come back to it to read it again soon, I am amazed that some reviewers give it a low rating. I can only surmise that the book (and probably the series) is not for them, just as I wouldn't enjoy a Western Cowboy book.
In my estimation Donaldson has excelled himself with this one. Yes, it's repetitious at times; yes, it's wordy; yes, it's thesaurus-demanding. But it is a fantastic tale (as a fantasy novel should be), full of facts about the Land and its occupants with a captivating story-line.
If you are a true 'Covenant' fan don't hesitate to go and get this one.
