From the death of Ingolf the last of the Frost Giants of the elder age to the fall of Valhalla the story buzzes with the brilliance of well planned plots racing towards a shatterring conclusion that leaves a warm feeling in the hearts of the readers.
Don't be put off by this review, read it yourselves and come to yoour own conclusions.
Although I know nothing of Opera, I appreciated the characters and situations were based on existing myths, and this seemed to add to the whole book.
Some of Tom Holt's work is a bit too Fantastic for me, but you get the feeling that this story could actually happen, well I suppose it couldn't really - or could it!?
If you like Tom Holt and you haven't read this one, get it now!
The basic concept is: What would happen if someone nice got control of the ring? The embellishments on Wagner would leave him envious. I have given more copies of this than I can remember to all my opera-going friends and to singers of these roles; it's that extraordinary.
I've read it again several times including once recently when I was quite ill. It's a comfort read for me.
However having aged a bit, perhaps become a bit more cynical and read more recent Tom Holt (which I did not enjoy) I'm aware that perhaps if I read it for the first time now I wouldn't enjoy it as much.
Hey ho - we're not pretending these reviews are objective are we?
