A masterpiece. Recommended.,

This review is from: The Great Book of Amber: The Complete Amber Chronicles, 1-10 (Chronicles of Amber) (Paperback)
I read the first 5 books about 10 years ago, however, I didn't like them.
A few month ago, I gave it another try and I just could not put the book down. I guess I was not ready for the The Great Book of Amber 10 years ago. Some of my friends kept on telling me that only the first 5 are interesting and then only the first 2 books, the rest are boring, especially the 5 last books. I must totally disagree with them. I enjoyed equally throughout all 10 books with a slight disappointment in a book 9 (I had a feeling like I am reading a book written after a PC quest game). Otherwise the series are great. I wish Roger Zelazny was still with us and could write a sequence, because even when you are done with 10th book, there is a feeling that there are a lot more to tell us...this is a reason why I would give it 9 of 10 stars and not all 10.
Who knows, maybe one day some genius will accomplish such an feat.
