Man, did I ever love these books. Seriously. I still pick them up from time to time, and they are just perfect for that high-fantasy, D&D-style good time type of read. Nice to have all the books together in this edition, as well.

The best adaption from DnD roleplaying to the written format. Captures the pace and excitment very well, particularly in the early parts, you can almost feel the saving throws being made against Raistlin's spells. Spawned a huge world of spin off writings and games. Still nothing beats the original. A group of friends, reunite after a few years exploring the world and tracing their histories. Disturbing portents abound, a stranger appears with miraculous claims and the friends offer to help. One thing leads to another and the group splits up, eventually the survivors re-unite in time to battle with an ancient god's minions to save the world - but for which side? A well crafted world with characters you can love for all their faults. Truly a gripping read.

More enjoyable for a younger reader...though a cracking good read the first time around.
Review by imyril
I loved this as a D&D-playing teen, but it hasn't aged well. While there is some entertainment to be gleaned from watching somebody else's campaign play out, the prose is horrible and the characters fall flat in the face of so much tell not show. This may be a pulp classic of sorts, but sadly it is no longer one I can enjoy.
