I brought this as I am looking forward to playing the online game Age Of Conan and wanted to know more of the back story.
The books is beautiful, its very thick and alot bigger than I thought it would be with fantastic illustrations here and there.
The stories are just breath taking, I have gone through many emotions whilst reading and I have never experienced this with any other book before.
REH manages to convey the surroundings fantasticly in just a few lines not pages and pages of description like many other authors require, feelings and emotion of the characters are portraid equally well.
And the most important part, how are the stories? Well they are simply magnificent Conan is brought accross fantastically, the battles are described better than anything I have read before and really do get you going in a way which you would whilst watching a good movie.
This book is just awe inspiring I have never read anything so fantastic and highly, highly reccomend it!
