Great Epic Fantasy Story. Good Character development.
reviewed To Green Angel Tower, Part 1 (Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn) on
Really great series! Very detailed, so if you want a fast paced fantasy series this is not the one. The writing is great, the editing is good to until the last book. It got kind of shabby, but it didn't take away from the story at all.

The story is deeply rooted and so there are a lot of parts that get really slow through all three books, but it still was exciting to read. The world building is incredible, I don't know if I have read a fantasy yet that matches the world building in this series.

A couple of things I didn't like: The main character is quite whiny and it really gets boring reading that over and over again. He is a boy growing so it fits, it's just hard to stay interested, but I guess all people are whiny in their ways. The ending was ver long. It felt to drawn out. I kind of wanted the end to happen faster than it did, and get to the part where they are rebuilding around them. The author spent so much time with the evil going down and did not reserve enough of the book to finish it off. You know those books, where the world is destroyed and then at the end the guy gets the girl and it's the end? For the amount of story telling going on here and building I just don't get the end being that simple.

Otherwise great series worth the read!

This is the first book (of two) of part three of the story of a lush and dense fantasy world where an epic battle of good versus evil takes place. The story, which started in parts one and two is continued in part three book 2, so the trilogy contains 4 books.
If you enjoy epic fantasies, Tad Williams' series is bound to be enjoyable.

This series is amazing, highly recommended for fans of epic fantasy with detailed, involved plots and complex characters.

Can't review this one yet as I haven't read it. Somehow I ended up with two copies. I have enjoyed other books by this author, though. For now, I'll give it a medium rating.
