This is a classic of its time. Jack Vance's descriptions are as evocative and vivid as ever. If you enjoy the challenge of following the language and obtaining a sense of the people and places the author describes, this is for you. If you want your thinking done for you, this isn't your author - go and watch TV, or read almost any of the recent published 'fantasy'. This is an author who, when you read his books, does not give you the feeling he's writing for the money.
