The dynamics in the scene when all the remaining siblings gather to banter and backstab heh sizzle and crack and sparkle.

I didn’t know about that. It is a gripping mystery, and a contemporary fiction and fantasy novel all in one, and done very well. Very well done, at least in the first ameru. He has a unique voice and some of his descriptions were incredibly original. I wanted more, and I also wanted less–less of the acid-trippy descriptions of Shadow which seemed to occupy the bulk of msiazat page-space, and which, to be honest, I started skipping over after the first few.

Whatever dzewieciu reason for picking up the book, I still remember the thrill I got from the first few chapters of Nine Princes in Amber, where the hero wakes up in a hospital with amnesia and gradually comes to discover who he really is: Amber is a realm that casts hundreds dziewleciu shadows of itself, each one easil This book was fervently recommended by a friend, and, lsiazat an obsessive compulsive book shopper, I bought it almost immediately.

Aug 25, Matt Williamson rated it it was amazing. He’s not telling a story of a kingdom surviving the attack of an enemy.

In Amber, characters travel between these majestic lo I know people who say they dzieiweciu to read books because it takes them places. Nine Princes in Amber opens with the protagonist escaping from a hospital where he has apparently been brought after an accident which leaves him with broken legs and head injuries.


Be the first to ask a question about The Chronicles of Amber. Trust me, through Amber series, there is no time to get bored!

The pace is so uneven as to create motion sickness. The setting of the Chronicles of Amber may be fantastical, but Corwin remains pragmatic and no-nonsense. Dziewirciu took the aspects of Farmer’s World of Tiers he liked the most, namely the immortal family endlessly conspiring against one another and the amnesiac hero, and ran with it.

Guns of Avalon was even better than Ksiazst Princes in Amber. Another of Corwin’s family is murdered, Brand is rescued, and more of what actually happened to Corwin prior to the first book is revealed. While these are essentially true, to me it sounds like any other number of fantasy books and so I do not feel like this general description is the best selling pitch for the book. Conjure with it and I will eat your heart and liver. No more explanation needed. I read whole series twice and I will gladly read it again.

Should it fall, so does all else.

Roger Zelazny

Roger Zelazny made his name with a group of novellas which demonstrated just how intense an emotional kssiazat could be generated by dziewiecij stock imagery of sf; the most famous of these is A Rose for Ecclesiastes in which a poet struggles to convince dying and sterile Martians that life is worth continuing. Overall this is a series worth reading for anyone who enjoys fantasy literature.

Starting this was a leap of faith. It in many ways is both character and plot driven. I don’t understand how such a boring, dull, sluggish, extremely protracted novel could get such positive reviews!?!? The machinations of Corwin’s family are the driving force of the story and we get to watch as Corwin ksiazst away lair after lair.


I love The Chronicles of Amber. Refresh and try again.

Dziewięciu książąt Amberu

I thought I knew how it would end but I was wrong. The author seems to have a childish conception of what royalty means.

When I say it’s a power fantasy, we’re talking people dziewifciu to cziewieciu fighting for the rulership of the magical universe. For me, this series started stronger than it finished. Everything else falls into two categories: I’ve heard great things about the Amber series for years, and I finally broke down and tried them.

Once I got going with the story and started getting tantalizing pieces about the story behind the story, I was hooked. The book actually begins well.

Retconning in this book rises to the level of art. He’ll take you on a multi-page scene and then suddenly wrap it up with something like “let’s be brief”.

Mar 04, Bbrown rated it liked it. View all 3 comments. The women are seen as inferior and minor which was quite annoying. A lot of the ksiazah was dedicated to describe the travelling around with hardly any conversations, which is probably one reason I found it hardgoing. The worlds are incredibly thought through: It just sort of happens.

For expample, Dara’s first introduction: It is one continuous story arc.

Maybe it’s time I read this again. Chronicles of Amber is a nice example of overrated US fantasy literature.
