I've read many books, from many varied genres. Mr Salvatore has to me become the standard by which all other writers should be measured (unknowingly until now). With this piece of work, Salvatore has outdone even himself. At first I was surprised by the lack of action and then pleasantly surprised by the depth and portrayl of a confused society looking for guidance. I understand from what I have read that a lot of this came from Salvatore's own experiences and I have to say that he has done an outstanding job of being able to write a wonderful work whilst going through probably one of the most difficult periods in his life. I wish fantasy would be looked on as a more acceptable genre, because the quality of Salvatore's writing in this book deserves to be rewarded by more than just earning his living.
If you enjoy reading for more than just entertainment I recommend this book to you, for Salvatore I believe this is much more than just a book.
Thanks for writing it! :o)
