Martin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A world in which you can live! I had long been a fan of R.zelaznys work. I had, at one time or another, read pieces of his Amber stories but I never managed to find all the books until I found them in one book "the great book of amber" . After reading it, so may gaps were filled in and characters fleshed out that the story literally had that feel of living vibrancy that i love and yet find in so few books. If you ever wanted to read a book that was at once scifi and fantasy, murder mystery and politics, with a touch of the philosophical then i would highly recommend this book! If you never wanted to read that sort of thing then i suppose sticking to how to do your taxes will have to do ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Getting lost in a good way... This book sings to the reader- certainly not the type of book where one skips ahead searching out the dialogue:-) Intricacies galore with richly embellished characters having stunning adventures full of intrigue and deception within phantasmagorical settings! One does not put this book down with ease; rather one steps away for a moment to catch a deep breath before diving back into the fray! That all ten books are included here allows for a smooth transition from one to the next- perfect:-) This book must be read more than one time- the first dip is only that, a quick study where many of the convoluted relationships and endeavours may be difficult to keep straight. Then, the second read... lovelier than before.... All in all, a must read for all of those individuals with a thirst for the unique. For those wishing to give their minds a rest from the usual and enter a new state of being- step out of Shadow and into the reality of Amber!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Great Book Of Amber In my opinion, The Great Book of Amber, is the most amazing saga I have ever witnessed in a book. The chracters are unforgettable, the fantasy world that the novel portrays is astounding, and the foul language, trust and deception, makes the whole story seem life like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zelazny Shines The finest work of one of the finest writers in the F/SF field. Zelazny's Amber is the root of all worlds, and all others (including our own) are mere shadows. But it ain't paradise. In the first series of five books, our prince Corwin tells the tale of the royal struggle for the throne, where all the resaources of the dimensions are available. The second series follows Merlin as he searches for his missing father Corwin - and what is unusual about the sequel series is that is neither sentimental or maudlin, but rather a unique series in its own right. Don't miss them.

Editorial Reviews

“Lord of Light is funny, wise, and infused with a sense of wonder and knowledge. It tells of people who become gods but still remain, for all that, people.It is tricky and brilliant and heartfelt and dangerous. It’s the kind of book that makes you want to be a writer. Nobody else made myths real and valuable in the way Roger Zelazny could. I’m delighted that Lord of Light is being reissued in trade paperback for a new generation.” (Neil Gaiman)
