Man, this is probably my favorite series of all time. This is my third time reading it (maybe fourth) and I think I enjoyed it more this time. There are several scenes that are just amazing, like when Covenant meets Foamfollower and the giant asks him to talk about himself, or when Bannor assesses the Ramen methods after the killing of the kresh. (I'm trying to be non-spoiler about it.)

I find Bannor to be one of my favorite characters, and the Bloodguard in general are so rich. As are the Ramen, and Saltheart Foamfollower is not only one of the great characters, but one of the greatest names ever.

I've often heard people say that this book is slow because it needs to provide the background for everything and suffers from "origin story syndrome" but I just find the world-building to be so imaginative and solid and rich. I've used that word twice now, but that is the best word for it. Going from our world to The Land must be like going from watching an old grainy black and white television to seeing a hi-def 3-D television. I do favor the second and third books in the series over this one, but I truly enjoyed this rereading. ( )

DNF - the desire to be Tolkein hangs over it like a wet cloud. the premise interesting and I can power through a bit of pretentiousness with the best of them but the rape of the sixteen year old just had me tapping out. There are better books on my TBR than suffering through all of this. ( )

MEH. I am happy that Frodo and the gang are going to Mt. Doom to get rid of the one ring. Oh, wait. That is another book. This book is really like that book but with more jerks and raping. There is a really cool giant named Foam Follower. That is who the book should have been about. Because of him I am giving it three stars instead of one. ( )

So, as a high fantasy novel, this one was up there. It had a rich world with interesting characters and unique creatures. They had their own customs and belief. There was a small, but not overwhelming presence of magic and the fantastical that made the world feel so real and down to earth. Even the MC's lack of belief that the world he was in really gave this book a nice atmosphere and made it so immersive. And the leprosy was a unique aspect.

But, that same quality about Covenant was also what made me give this book three stars. In his constant disbelief that the world around him was real, he became more of the anti-hero as he did not believe there would be any consequence for his actions. He even raped a sixteen-year-old girl who had done nothing but try and help him since he arrived in the world, then figured it was okay because no one came after him. Sure, he felt guilty and it stayed with him throughout the book, but after that, I can't see Thomas in a good light anymore. Nor can I give this book a better rating, even ifI did start to enjoy myself later on, after I pushed the event to the back of my mind. ( )

A man finds out that he has leprosy and then proceeds to act completely selfishly and horridly self-centeredly across two worlds and throughout the remainder of the novel. The main character has absolutely no redeeming qualities at all, and the story reads like bad D&D fic gone completely off the rails. The only way this book could hold any interest at all to me is if it's read as happening wholly in the MC's mind, and even then I don't think I can muster up enough bother to care. How this is considered a keystone of fantasy lit, I have absolutely no idea. ( )

She came out of the store just in time to see her young son playing on the sidewalk directly in the path of the gray, gaunt man who strode down the center of the walk like a mechanical derelict.

A real man - real in all the ways that we recognise as real - finds himself suddenly abstracted from the world and deposited in a physical situation which could not possibly exist~: sounds have aroma, smells have colour and depth, sights have texture, touches have pitch and timbre. There he is informed by a disembodied voice that he has been brought to that place as a champion for his world. He must fight to the death in single combat against a champion from another world. If he is defeated, he will die, and his world – the real world – will be destroyed because it lacks the inner strength to survive.
The man refuses to believe that what he is told is true. He asserts that he is either dreaming or hallucinating, and declines to be put in the false position of fighting to the death where no ‘real’ danger exists. He is implacable in his determination to disbelieve his apparent situation, and does not defend himself when he is attacked by the champion of the other world.
Question: Is the man’s behaviour courageous or cowardly? This is the fundamental question of ethics.

He could not bear the alternative. If he were dreaming, he might still be able to save his sanity, survive, endure. But if the Land were real, actual – ah, then the long anguish of his leprosy was a dream, and he was mad already, beyond hope
