5.0 out of 5 stars An epic tale, complex and desirable yet terrifying., 22 Nov. 2002
This review is from: The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, the Unbeliever: "Lord Foul's Bane", "Illearth War" and "Power That Preserves" (Paperback)
I love fantasy, to such an extent that I read at least 3 books a week. This series though...was one of those books that blew me away. The story has a similar feel to Tolkiens world, though could not be more different. It is one of the most powerful books I have ever read, but more than that it is not a classic tale. This is a tale that you will never believe yet will always think possible.
If you're looking for the usual hero fantasy look for books written by Eddings, Gemmell or Jordan. If you want something that is so complex and new that it will blow you away...this book will still surprise you. Have no expectations when you read this book, as they will be wrong.
The language is incredible, and it is one of the most mature books I have read. Even Tolkien had that sense of story that is read to children, this isn't. This is one the adults and parents will keep for themselves.
Thomas Covenant is a wonderful character, he is believable.
If you read any books this year, this is the only one that will stay in your minds for the rest of your life.

I don't think I would describe a rapist as wonderful.

Neither did I, I said he was a wonderful character, not a wonderful person. I'm talking in terms of literary prose and expression and I find your comment very insulting to myself.
