Too long? What have you people been reading....,
This review is from: Otherland: City of Golden Shadow Bk. 1 (Paperback)
I am a newbie to Tad Williams work, but am now hooked!
He starts magnificently with a twisting tale in the prologue, and continued to keep me guessing and changing my opinion throughout the whole book. The way the type of writing changed was done excellently, and I loved the whole book.
Some people have said that the book was too long, and the writing largely un-needed, but i think that you must have read a different book! The descriptions where magnificent, from WWI to mars, and as for too long? The book is, granted, substantial, and you could say the same for Tolkien, but it is heeded as the greatest book of all time! Honestly, read longer books and get used to it!
