Do you remember in the Eddie Murphy movie "Coming to America" there was a McDowell's burger shop? It looked like McDonald's, had "Golden Arcs", served the Big Mick with "two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions, but they use a sesame seed bun. My buns have no seeds."
This book is the McDowell's of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.
If you are okay with that, then you should read it.
Similar to the Lord of the Rings series....it was alright.
If you het the eerie feeling you have read this before, it is probably because you read Tolkien.It is practically the same book.Complete with wars,scary long lived guy in a tower,travelling through the old dwarves homeland that has been taken over by ancient evil, it just goes on.but, that said, it is still a good read.Entertaining and easy to read.Not a bad book, but if you don't like copycats or knockoffs, don't read it.
great read for fans of Tolkein; this is on the lighter side though...fast read
