Cheesy as it sounds, these books changed my life. I picked up a copy of Dragons of Autumn Twilight at school and was hooked. Ten years on, I'm a fantasy writer myself. Yes, the writing style is unexceptional, but who cares when the characters sweep you up and take you away with them. Alright, Laurana and Goldmoon are entirely too beautiful, and Sturm a bit too perfect, but Tika,Tas, Fizban and Flint are great. As for my favourite, Raistlin, I defy anyone to read the books and not be rooting for him. Some people say the story is too simplistic, the issues too black-and-white, but to me they're missing the point. It's the charm of the characters, the youth and humour and innocence, the sense that you're traveling right along with them, that makes the book.

After having my original 3 book edition of the Chronicles covered in soup at the dinner table after it was "borrowed" (thanks, Dad!) I put into the back of my mind to buy another copy sooner or later. Then rumours started to float about of a new animated DragonLance movie that should put the likes of the last movies Dungeons and Dragons (pants) and Eragon (also pants) to shame, with Kiefer Sutherland headlining as Raistlin and the entire working crew receiving full support from the authors. So I looked up the website and lo and behold a picture of a shiny new book in hardcover and gilted edges. Since that meant "it's got shiny bits" (I am essentially a magpie) I proceeded to the checkout at Amazon and quite happily paid the thirty odd quid...

... which brings us to this review of self-justification via a guilty conscience to part with that amount of money for a book. This was the first novel in my pre-teens that ever encountered something called a "development arc", so in reading it again it took me straight back to those days where I followed Tanis et al with a sense of enjoyment I had not encountered with a book before. The characters all carry a sense of torment and have their own issues to deal with but what got me hooked was the group interaction between strong personalities that resonated throughout the series. That type of conflict between main characters was then highlighted for myself again in the short-lived sci-fi series Firefly - where the crew are all adults, trust each other implicitly and know they're good, but actually working with each other can produce awkward situations. For the Companions in DragonLance, their whole journey is not just to restore the Balance in the world, but also to change the sense of perspective in themselves at how they see that world.

I read these when they were first released in the 80's, I found them very riveting, couldn't put the books down, due to some misfortune whilst moving a few eyars ago, my whole collection was stolen. So I boguht the Chronicle collectors edition a few eyars ago and it still had the same impact.

Once you really get to know and undersatnd what drives the characters, you begin to feel for them, know their pain, like any good story really, but this was so different, I had the lumps in my throat when certain character met an untimely end, you feel the sadness and sorrow that thye other characters feel.

I am a professional film director and writer and find these books so inspirational for my own work. these are not as heavy going as ther Lord of the Rings, not that LOTR is bad, on the contrary, but they can be a bit overwhelming when so many chapters focus on a specific plot and it seems to take forever to read it, but that is not the case with Chronicles or Legends.

A lovely book that brought back very happy memories of my days playing D&D. Luckily I couldn't remember everything that happened anyway so it was great to read it and then for the memory of it to hit me again a few moments later. Being gently reminded of epic fun evenings playing Dungeons & Dragons with epically good friends, battling monsters with magic and swords.

It has great characters and anyone familiar with Dungeons and Dragons will love it and recognise everything immediately. I don't think it's on par with Lord of the Rings probably but it's getting there in terms of depth of characters, breadth and detail of the world in which its based etc. And praise doesn't come much higher that that.

The book itself is well made, if of course a little on the large size. Personally I like that and I did buy the combined books 1 to 3 but you can get them individually if you wish.

All in all a classic and I am loving it as much if not more so this second time around. If either you played D&D, love Lord of the Rings or indeed any similar fantasy then I don't think you will be disappointed.

The Dragonlance series is one of my favourites when I was a teen - and Chronicles is what made me an avid reader.

The story is set in a high fantasy world were the long forgotten gods are re-emerging. The evil gods are gathering their armies to take over, the good gods are finding champions to re-establish a balance. The main story arc follows a band of adventurers who inadvertently get caught up in the whole affair, and are tasked with helping a woman find a lost relic of the old good gods to. So it essentially begins with the old overused Quest storyline, but from there it evolves as the characters go forth on their own, splinter into groups, meeting up again, go off in new groups etc and partake in various roles within the overall war. Basically you never really know where the story is going, and it has many turns and twists.

The characters are interesting and each is different, although they are fantasy archetypes and so most never truly break away from some of clichés (e.g. the gruff dwarf, the honour bound knight etc). Tas offers humour and the trials of other characters offers tragedy and heartbreak. Raistlin is without doubt one of the greatest characters of all time. The imagination in bringing him to life and his story arc alone is genius, and he deserves to be listed with Gandalf as an icon fantasy character - except he's nothing like Gandalf; Gandalf defined the archetype mould for wizards, Raistlin looked at the mould, laughed at it, blew it up and decided to become the single most epic depiction of a wizard put to paper.

The book's relatively short compared to some other fantasies (Wheel or Time, Game of Thrones etc), and not as difficult to read as say Lord of the Rings. Therefore its an easy, enjoyable read.
