I'll never forget this beautiful,magical tale,
This review is from: Forest of Hours (Paperback)
This is one of the most absorbing books I have ever read. I would recommend it to anyone. The tale of Skord the troll/man's life, his immersion into human society throughout the Middle Ages (the book is set around our acutal history with references to the Thiry Year War and Descartes) and his thoughts on society, religion and nature is beautifully and strongly written to provoke thought as well as emotion. Although written in the third person, when the story ended I felt as though I had lost a friend.
