The final book of the Chronicles of Dragon Lance. The Final battles of Good and Evil. It will end here, for good or ill, for at least most of the companions of our D&D tale. The War of the Lance completes. Magic, sneaking, spying, War, interpersonal conflicts, conflicts of morality and of the soul all in this book. It is still a great story even after all these years.
The narration however seemed to weaken. Characters and statements that should have been said with strength almost seem whiny. The narration itself is decent, but it feels as if the narrator did not take the time to consider the situation and the emotions behind the situation and instead just read the book. The characters even didn't have as much distinction between them as they did in the first and second books.
I liked the fact that at first, the story begin to pick up speed again.
I didn't like the fact that after what seemed to be an upswing in the storyline, the writer once again bores us to death with the seedy intrigues between Tanis and Kitara!
The hero characters became so idiotic at some points, you are left to wonder if they really aren't a bigger threat to the world than the pathetic villains.
The injection of feminism, Taoism, and absurd theories of good & evil, which if allowed to influence others will lead one to believe that being evil is just as valid a contribution to the "balance" of the world order as being good! ABSURD nonsense!
His female voicings are eerily husky, reminescent of some drag queen trying to sound femine! Creepy...
No, don't waste the money. You'd need "carrot top" to play Tanis, and a host of other clowns to represent the general comedic dysfunction in these "heroes".
What a waste of good money.
