    " haven't finished it and may never. It wasn't horrible (the parts I read) just not good enough to hold my interest. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Samuel Medina | 2/17/2014

    " I really, really, really hate Linden Avery. "

    " Dammit, this isn't a trilogy, its a quadrilogy! Now I have to wait another damn year ... "

    " Putting aside the fact that the book is 743 pages without appendix and prologue, when the first page contains the words illimitable, orogeny and frangible you know you are in for a long read. I was disappointed, perhaps this is one series too far, almost everyone is brought back from the dead in some shape or form. The book is very repititive as if the prologue needs repeating, again and again - NO !! Raed the prologue read the previous books no need to re-read. So I am re-reading this now ??????? Only to skim and look at all the words I am less familiar with. The story ... was there one ? Good aspects the world is coming to an end - now overdue. Some of the quest characters die - not all the evil characters die. Some turn from good to evil and vice versa since the earlier books. I am a stubborn reader so will pursue the series to the end. At least I might improve my diction. "

    " This, the ninth book of the ten book collected Thomas Covenant Chronicles, is obviously only for fans of the earlier works, and even some of those may very well dislike it. Much of it describes (in sometimes exhausting detail) the psychological torments of Linden Avery and, to a lesser extent, Covenant. That being said, Stephen Donaldson's imagined Land is so rich with characters, history, myth, and lore that I still find it the most compelling fantasy series I've ever read, after Tolkein. I am eagerly awaiting the finale, "The Last Dark", to be released in October, 2013. "

    " Whew! I tried to read this a while back and after 50 pages where nothing happened I gave up for the time being. I decided to check the audio book out of the library and came home with 27 CDs and started to plough through. Donaldson has become self-indulgent, spinning out elaborate details and explanations of the relationships among an expansive cast of characters and repeating himself incessantly. Not much action for a 550 page book with extremely fine print. But since I had read all his previous stuff there is no path but forward to keep up. He has been brilliant at times, but not now. I will, of course, complete the series when the "last" book comes out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Archie | 1/16/2014

    " I would have ended this series with this book, instead of drawing it out to a 4th book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 1/16/2014

    " a bit long winded at the start but very good once it got going "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peterwilliam | 12/21/2013

    " Review to come when book is released. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert Calder | 12/10/2013

    " Disappointing and depressing - even for what is, overall, a rather dark series of books. I was determined to finish it, and I'm glad I did. But it left me unsatisfied. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rick | 9/5/2013

    " Great book, so lush and engaging. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending) this is NOT actually the last book. It turns out to be the penultimate chapter leading us to The Last Dark. Not due until 2013? Ack! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerry | 2/17/2013

    " Beyond awesome. The sheer scale and grandeur of Stephen Donaldson's Thomas Cvenant series is unmatchable. I feel bereft! Bring on book four! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lesley | 2/12/2013

    " Dense, obtuse and obfuscated. *sigh* "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brian Ronan | 11/21/2012

    " I'm not going back to the Land again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonathan Warner | 3/23/2012

    " One of Donaldson's most beautifully written books. He is clearly at the top of his game here. LOVED IT. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ratonline | 5/10/2011

    " I love Stephen R. Donaldson's epic novels but this one seemed a little long drawn out, as though the author had to reach a certain number of pages irrespective of the fact that the rhythm of the story lost its pace.
    Still, I look forward to the next and last book of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rex | 3/7/2011

    " Excellent continuation of a compelling story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Evan | 3/4/2011

    " So far, the better of the last three books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn | 2/17/2011

    " Great to get back into the Thomas Covenant novels again. This book was as enjoyable as ever. Only problem was that I felt it pace slowed considerably in the middle leaving me wondering if the book could have been shorter, thus keeping more interest.
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Archie | 2/8/2011

    " I would have ended this series with this book, instead of drawing it out to a 4th book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/7/2011

    " This book delivers on all the promises of the series so far. I just can't say much more than that without giving away spoilers for this or previous books.

    This is definitely a series to read in order. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gaetan | 1/28/2011

    " I've really enjoyed this series. After going back to re-read the previous Coventant books, I realize that the latest incarnation of the Covenant story is the best. Can't wait for the conclusion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Harry | 1/21/2011

    " Lengthy, but a compelling and rich story. Donaldson has a gift for painting scenes of unrivalled clarity. His depictions of wild magic are as awe-inspiring as ever. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonathan | 1/19/2011

    so sad the series is almost over :( "
