I consider this trilogy one of the best fantasy stories I've ever read. I love fantasy, and for me, a good book is one where the characters feel real - not cut out caricatures that speak or act at someone's whim, even if that someone is the author; this book delivers that, for me. I started reading this series when each story was published individually; many moves later, my books were gone, and I was devastated at the thought of losing this wonderful story. Needless to say, I grabbed up the trilogy as soon as I saw it on the bookshelves!

I'm usually skeptic about reading a fantasy. So often have I picked up a fantasy looking for a book of sophistication that would still entertain, and so often have I been dissapointed. Kay's Fionavar Tapestry, however, is simply a brilliant work of modern fantasy. Well developed characters and a simple yet engrossing plot make this one of the best fantasies out there. However, Kay introduces an Arthurian sub plot about half way through the tapestry. Some may enjoy such a thing, but I found it tacky and contrived. Putting this aside, though, I would highly reccomend this book.

Nothing is truly original, especially in the realm of fantasy; there will always be magic, mystical beasts, powerful beings and epic battles. But then that is why we like this stuff, and so Guy Gavriel Kay's The Fionavar Tapestry, is indeed a wonderous and exciting story to experience. In fact I have no qualms with placing this right with Tolkien's Lord of the Rings in the category of great writing and storytelling. I wouldn't say that Kay copies Tolkien's style of poetic writing but rather derives hisown techniques of description that are reminiscent of LOTR. There are profoundly developed characters and adventurous plot twists that kept me interested and glued to the pages. If you're someone who really enjoys good fantasy, I recommend this. And despite the fact that the book isn't 100% original, almost immediately within the first few pages, it's obviously and undeniably unique from other fantasy novels. You will not be disappointed.

This book was one of the best fantasy trilogies ever written. Associating with the characters becomes extremely easy due to the fact they are from the same world as we are. Well worth the read.+

Format: Paperback
Kay has a wonderfully smooth, poetic writing style that lends itself perfectly to weaving the rich mythology of this tale. The reader becomes utterly immersed in the land of Fionavar through its peoples, its history and its magic. Unforgettable characters and unending adventure make this an epic fantasy that easily rivals The Lord of The Rings! This is a MUST READ for any fantasy lover!
