Love it or Hate it.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Knight's Dawn: The Red Pavilions: Book One (Paperback)
This is obviously one of those books (the whole trilogy in fact) which you either love or hate. I love it. I love its inventiveness, its quirkiness and its sheer sense of wonder. It may not be Lord of the Rings high fantasy but I don't think it's supposed to be. There are those who hate it and give it one line reviews in which they say the writing style is appalling and the content bad, but they seem unaware that this is merely their opinion and that books are a matter of taste, not fact. What they found awful many more of us (see all the reviews) found terrific and the haters are in the minority. This is a tale you have to read to the end to get any sense of where the plot is leading: a problem with trilogies when one has to wait for the second and third books.
