In Volume 3 of the classic Gormenghast Trilogy, a doomed lord, an emergent hero, and an array of bizarre creatures haunt the world of Gormenghast Castle. This trilogy, along with Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, reigns as one of the undisputed fantasy classics of all time. At the center of everything is the 77th Earl, Titus Groan, who stands to inherit the miles of rambling stone and mortar that form Gormenghast Castle and its kingdom.

In this third volume, Titus turns against the iron discipline of Gormenghast's ritual and sets forth on an uncertain quest - to find himself. His pilgrimage leads to encounters with mysteriously omnipotent, ruthless police, and a battle to the death with Veil, a gaunt ogre with a body like whips and a face that moves like the shiftings of the gray slime of the pit. Titus, in his quest for independence from his legacy, despite the fantastical trappings of his odyssey, captures successfully the humanistic conception of contemporary man.

    " Gormenghast #3 - waiting to read in sequence "

    " The last completed Titus Groan book was a little less coherent and polished as the first two. The fantastic language and imagination are still there and it is a pleasure to read - just not quite complete. "

    " I'm not too sure what to make of this. The book rips Titus out of his medieval world and puts him in the realm of mad scientists. But Juno and Muzzlehatch are great characters, even if Titus himself needs a good beating. "

    " Book 3 of the Gormenghast Trilogy. A very odd series of books about the biggest castle in the world and it's crazy inhabitants. "
