For the daydreamers but still pretty good,

This review is from: To Green Angel Tower Part 1 (Memory, Sorrow, & Thorn 3) (Mass Market Paperback)
I read this book and I had absolutely no criticism of it. Now reading other people's comments I realise that you either love or hate this book. If you liked Tolkien but with some variety and an interesting plot, then read on. The storyline is complex and quite clever, and his realistic view of his world is true to form. This is essentially more of a love story than a true fantasy epic as there's a lot in relationships and emotions involved than the usual powerful honour and courage than you would find in most other fantasy books. This is where Williams's strength lies. His accurate telling of events is sublime if you can concentrate on storyline only, but his concentration towards the main character, Simon, might make you turn pages where other characters are involved to read more about him. Slightly dubious in his character, Tiamak, as his role is small, but chapters are devoted to him. But overall, he's made a classic fantasy tale that's different and more realistic than most. Seriously good.
