Yes. It is a very particular type of book that, I think, would only appeal to fans of the genre but, saying that, it is an excellent representation of that genre.
It would have to be Burton himself. Complex, intelligent and unusual for his "time".
Gerard Doyle is excellent as a narrator. His performance is always exceptional.
The only reaction to this book was complete submergence in it. The story and story telling put you deep within the unfolding narrative
An excellent book. (To be read, of course, in sequence with the others from the series) :)
I would recommend any of the Disk World novels. I wouldn't necessarily begin with this one though.
Vimes. Having read all the novels the voice I imagined was different. Now it will be the voice by Stephen Briggs
Pratchett always makes me laugh
I read a lot of Michael Moorcock a good few years ago. Returning now and seeing the same themes but developed to such a degree was a delight
The point at which you realise that, from an apparently straightforward story, a great deal more is involved.
What is the highest stake you would gamble
At least a little familiarity with Moorcock would greatly enhance the enjoyment of this book
