It's the first part of the first Zork game. And, as Shifty said:

this was one i really enjoyed. the only thing that let it down in my humble opinion is as previously mentioned by others the boys just seemed a little too young..

I did like this one, though it scared me a few times, I must re-read it again soon. I particularly liked the drunk guy.

Did I dream it or was there a scene with a blacksmith that was rather risque?

Haha, it's been ages since I said I would, and I still haven't read Faerie Tale.

I honestly could not be bothered.

That's a pretty nice cover, Coe. Personally, I prefer the UK cover version that my copy has. ;)

Read it, you. I felt the book was well summarised here. Gives you a nice, concise idea of the novel.

I've read the book and... WOW

I'd easily put this down as one of Feist's best works.  I think the cover noted that it gave a sense of forboding and thats exactly what I felt through about 80% of the novel, all the way from the very beginning.  It had a bit of an information dump at the end to tie up alot of things but beyond that it's purely awesome work.  I could almost feel the fear and terror of the characters and found myself almost trying to will them to save themselves in many circumstances, so gripped was I by the moments.

This book, more than any other, showed me that there's certainly a unique style behind Feist's work which makes it easily recognizable.  Even if I hadn't seen the Author's name on the cover I'd have probably picked it as his, mostly because of the character Mark who's thoughts and actions matched closely to many of the investigators from Feist's Midkemia work.

I think one of the big reasons I loved this book is because it was a fresh new world and system.  Suddenly I wasn't reading about the world of Midkemia and characters there who'd been described multiple times through multiple books, nor was I getting repeats on the magick/supernatural systems but a whole new one in a new setting.  If this is an example of what Feist can do outside the world of Midkemia then I'm certainly looking forward to him finishing the series and letting his imagination stretch beyond the confines of that old universe.

I've always wondered who wrote Faerie Tale, it is so difference from everything else of REF's. The idiocies in the plotting are absent, there are no continuity problems, etc.

Why do i think of the old movie Leprechaun everytime i think of Faerie Tale?
That probably means it's time for a reread.   :elf_gloop:
