Fabulously Gripping work
For strong readers. Readers must be able to withstand long stretches of description, a life-like story arch (sometimes astray and dissapointing), and the understanding that this book in itself one chapter in a voluminous work. Still and all, the very lifelike charachers make you ache to know what they are doing (thinking, feeling) next. There is real action and adventure and characters with whom you do not only sympathise, but empathise, because it is so easy to take their struggles as your own.
