    After the Great War that divided the peoples, the kingdoms of men plunged into a Dark Age that lasted 500 years. To heal the lands and restore the light, the great kings decreed that magic and all that is magical, be it creature, man, or device, shall be cleansed to dust. The cleansing raged for so long that no human could recall a time without it and it is in this time that the Dark Lord Sathar returned from the dark beyond.

    Overall

    We thoroughly enjoyed this book. The rich details, the sweeping story, the terrific characters -- it's all great. The narrator is very good. I was so sorry it ended that I got the 2nd right away. The 2nd is definitely amazing as well, a better story in many ways.

    In late 2003, in his column in Entertainment Weekly, Stephen King called The Memory of Running "the best novel you won't read this year." This glowing endorsement of the audiobook resulted in Ron McLarty receiving a $2 million two-book deal from Viking Penguin. Also, Warner Brothers has shelled out big bucks for the movie rights to The Memory of Running, for which McLarty will write the script.

    "A surprise and a good one"
    Overall

    I got this on a whim. I had never heard of this author, and I don't get entertainment weekly so I didn't read Stephen King's article about it either. I don't even remember reading the synopsis that mentions King. But when I recommended this to a friend like it was a miracle find, she told me. Long story short, it's a pretty good book. Read it.
