Good classic fantasy

Is there anything you would change about this book?

No.

What did you like best about this story?

Classic fantasy story, but not your typical heroes.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator could have done a better job of making each character distinctive.

Could you see Ill Met in Lankhmar being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Jerome Flynn (Bronn from GoT) as the Gray Mouser and Liam Neeson as Fafhrd because he's tall?
