Dragons of Autumn Twilight: Dragonlance: Chronicles, Book 1 | [Margaret Weis, Tracy Hickman]

Dragons of Autumn Twilight: Dragonlance: Chronicles, Book 1

Lifelong friends, they went their separate ways. Now they are together again, though each holds secrets from the others in his heart. They speak of a world shadowed with rumors of war. They speak of tales of strange monsters, creatures of myth, creatures of legend. They do not speak of their secrets. Not then. Not until a chance encounter with a beautiful, sorrowful woman, who bears a magical crystal staff, draws the companions deeper into the shadows, forever changing their lives and shaping the fate of the world.

They speak of tales of strange monsters, creatures of myth, creatures of legend. They do not speak of their secrets. Not then.

No one expected them to be heroes.

Least of all, them.

    "Greatest fantasy trilogy ever written"

    In my opinion, one of the greatest trilogies ever written. Hopefully one day a movie can be made. If you are into fantasy, this is a must read.

    "Great Narration"

    Wonder story! The narrator really brought the story to life more so than my feeble mind could by reading.

    Story
    "Probably not the way to experience this classic."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book is like a patchwork quilt where many of the squares (certain characters, Raistlyn in particular) are beautiful, intriguing, and appear to have been sewn with great talent and attention to detail. They are held together by mediocre stitching and interspersed with squares that are flat and unimaginative.


    Would you recommend Dragons of Autumn Twilight to your friends? Why or why not?

    As an aspiring fantasy author I'm glad I'm reading this series to see and digest the good parts and draw some cautionary lessons from the bad parts. As a straight reader, this may not be worth your time.


    What didn’t you like about Paul Boehmer’s performance?

    His emphases are in all the wrong places; that's the primary thing. He is perpetually slowing down and weighting some pointless word in, say, a descriptive introduction to a scene, like this (taken from Winter Night, but typical of both books): "...in the *grip*...of winter." I don't think he knows what cliches are. Also up there is his use of annoying accents for various characters, coupled with a fairly poor degree of consistency in their use.


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

    I'm glad I'm finally reading it after all these years. There are very interesting characters and character relationships to digest in this series: Raistlyn-Carigwen [I have no idea how these are actually spelled], Riverwind-Goldmoon in this book. There are some ways in which this series handles verisimilitude of people with divergent outlooks and goals trying to cooperate very well.

    "It's about time!"
    Would you listen to Dragons of Autumn Twilight again? Why?

    Up until now, there have only been two versions of the Dragonlance classics. One was an abridged version I had back in the late 80's on cassette. The other was a little known version only available to services to the blind, which had all the emotion of a phone book recital. This is an audiobook worthy of this Classic.


    Any additional comments?

    Even though I love it, I think that I am slightly offended on behalf of my culture. Why did he have to give all the gully dwarves Southern accents?!?

    Just as I remembered it as a child reading it in school. The narrator did an awesome job.
