Unbelievably disappointed. The main problem I had with this book is that I got extremely bored. It has bad plot, miserable storytelling. It's epically dull, very predictable, slightly cheesy, tedious and there's no real character development (I absolutely did not care about any of the main characters). Trying to finish this book was an excruciating struggle. Its title should've been: "Don't Bother". I simply don't understand why this book has been praised. I would have given it 0 stars if that was possible: it's just so badly written....Continua
Tigana is a book that I've read several times. Though it's not my favourite of Kay's books, it still ranks very highly in general. The plot is so intriguing and intense with twists and turns that it really is hard not to appreciate it.
What a great novel. While Tigana does not move at a quick pace, it is still a wonderful read. The characters are very detailed leading to many emotional moments. I actually found myself yelling at one of them due to a seemingly stupid decision made at one point.
While this is a fantasy novel, I would still recommend it to any lover of epic literature. It is an excellent book which one can really sink their teeth into....Continua
Beautiful story of a land cursed to oblivion - whose conquered denizens have been scattered and magically forbidden to ever repeat the name of their homeland.
This is a magnificent story of the struggle for identity - both personal and political. It's amazing, what Mr. Kay does with the subject. His characters are, as always, well-rounded and real in their actions and reactions. A sweeping adventure story, a love story, a hero-story. This is one of the most beautiful novels I've ever read. Highly, highly recommended....Continua
