    In the conclusion of Guy Gavriel Kay's critically acclaimed fantasy trilogy, The Fionavar Tapestry, five university students from our world prepare to sacrifice themselves - as they enter into final battle against a power of unimaginable proportions.

    C. Telfair says: "Just Too ManyThreads!"
    "Not only the Darkest but also the most Tedious"
    Overall

    After listening to and enjoying the first two books in this series, I was looking forward to hearing the conclusion of the story. Unfortunately the author seems to have become tangled in all the intricate plots and sub-plots to the point where almost nothing happens but the characters just stand around while he explains what they are thinking and why they are thinking it and what they might do if they thought that they were thinking about something other than what they were thinking, etc., etc. It's too bad because the story has plenty of potential for action and I suppose that if I were more patient I would be rewarded by finishing the book, but I can't bring myself to listening for another five hours in hope of that. It's not easy to write a critical review, but you would be better to forget this book and enjoy some of his others.
