Publisher's Summary

An intricately woven fable filled with magical creatures—and astonishing surprises.

In this wonderful fantasy, John Gardner weaves tales within tales to bring a magical world to vivid life. When three travelers on their way to the Suicide Mountains meet an enigmatic man, the Abbot of the Ancient Monastery, they begin a series of wild adventures in which they must confront mystical creatures—and come to terms with the roles fate has determined for each of them.

Superbly imagined and brimming with philosophical insight, In the Suicide Mountains is a tribute to Gardner’s passion for medieval storytelling, and an unforgettable novel in its own right.

VERY GOOD

A fun adult fairy tale written by a very talented author. Probably requires to be read/listened to more than one time to fully understand a lot of the underlying messages and symbolism. However, very enjoyable on any level. Good narration.
