ALWAYS compelling. The verse is a joy to hear. In addition, Chaucer's crude, vulgar passages are uproarious! I WILL admit, however, that the Parson's tale, tho interesting, is a pain-in-the-ass to listen to (and I'm sure his fellow pilgrims probably agreed!). Overall, quite a treat!
I could not finish this.
Or, more properly, I didn???t WANT to finish this.
It seemed just a bunch of vague, faceless, undeveloped, unknown wooden characters engaged in fantasy-style battles, all going nowhere in particular. In all fairness, I probably should have started with the first book of the series. On the other hand, this author is obviously a Tolkien wannabe, but fails to come even close to that master's achievement. Besides, his attempts at imitation reveal his weakness. Oh, I guess I may eventually start again with the first book, but I doubt it.
...AND... I'm sick and tired hearing about "Beta-type males". Why doesn't the author just take his crappy bourgeois labeling and go for a long walk off a short pier?!
