i heard amazing things about this book and the series as a whole. So I purchased the book for 7.99 at barnes and nobles and was excited about starting it.

I read through the first 3 chapters and Everything came to a screeching hault. The book slowed down so much i literally fell asleep while reading it, sitting up, twice.

This is one of the very few books that i gave up on. . .I read over half of it and by then i wanted to kick Thomas in the A$$. He is so negative and so non-chelant about his actions i wanted to choke him. And if a character makes me mad thats a good thing, that means they are getting to me and not boring me, but Thomas Covenant was boring and whining and just plain idiotic.

I know some of you out there are thinking, that the other books are better blah blah, but i have a firm philosophy, if the first book isnt any good as far as im concerned than im not going to waist my money or time on any other books in the series. Period.

I give this book 1 star out of 5
