The Dragonbone Chair by Tad Williams

I really enjoyed this book. Yes the start is slow but I thought that was good, it set the scene for what life was like before it all starts changing. The language is dense and descriptive and sometimes it seems to almost get in the way but it bothered me no more than reading Tolkien does.

Considering the age of this book I think it holds up fairly well to the modern reader, ok there were no shocking twists or whatever and you can kind of see where everything is going but I more attribute that to the amount of Fantasy novels I’ve read than the fault of the novel, and the fact that this book influenced so many modern authors. I flew through this book in 4 days which isn’t bad considering it’s a big book and am very eager to start the next. I highly recommend.
