This review is from: The Great Book of Amber: The Complete Amber Chronicles, 1-10 (Chronicles of Amber) (Paperback)
This is an Omnibus collection of a 10 volume series of novels. I had all ten paperbacks and am now better off for shelf space. There is/was another collected edition of the Amber series, but I didn't feel the design was good enough to want to read it - or have it in the house. This one is clean looking with decent sized type. The novels themselves are a lot of fun. Zelazny was very bright and it's a pleasure to be in his head. Fair to say that he is stronger on wit and ideas than on emotional exploration, but if you like wit and ideas... As with many series, the latter volumes aren't perhaps as strong as the first ones, though by the time one has read that far, the pleasure of theme and variation suffices. Recommended.
