    Amber is the one real world, of which all others including our own Earth are but Shadows. Amber burns in Corwin's blood. Exiled on Shadow Earth for centuries, the prince is about to return to Amber to make a mad and desperate rush upon the throne.

    What disappointed you about Nine Princes in Amber?

    The language used is very jarring. He mixes extremely formal ways of saying things with american slang and it grates horribly. You can't get lost in the story because of the way the language clashes. I can't believe there are ten books in the series!


    Has Nine Princes in Amber turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Definately not, I love sci fi and fantasy.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Alessandro Juliani?

    I don't know but I think his reading style may have added to the issues with the writing.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was a good story, just horribly written. Sad...
