Good read, could do with some more explanations,
This review is from: Lord Of Light (S.F. MASTERWORKS) (Paperback)
I read the Amber books by Roger Zelazny first and though they were amazing so decided to try this one. If anyone else is deciding to do the same, first of all be warned they are very different in the style of storytelling, but the character writing is pretty similar.
I thought this book was full of intriguing ideas and interesting characters. My only criticism is that it could have done with some more explanations as to what time period was being referred to in a particular chapter, and why certain characters were behaving the way they were. Although in the end it all comes together, it sometimes made it a struggle to read. There were also passages where I skimmed, generally battles, but thats probably just me.
Overall, very good, and I wish he'd written more books in the Amber series.
