5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books ever!, August 25, 1999
This review is from: The throne of bones (Hardcover)
I bought THE THRONE OF BONES through a book club. I had never heard of it or Brian McNaughton before. I guess the cover art first attracted me. When I started reading, I couldn't put it down, and I found myself thinking about the book and the characters when I wasn't reading it. Brian McNaughton's writing is style is like nothing I have read before. His mix of fantasy, sex and humor is so very entertaining and unique. As I read, I realized the stories were self-referential, mentioning places and theologies that are expanded on in later stories, which makes the world, Seelura, seem deeper and more alive. After reading it I had to go back and read it again so I could see how the characters, cities and religions all fit together within his work. I was very excited when I read on the dust jacket that he has a whole chronology, history and map of his world. I hope these get published one day, along with more of his work, by a mass market publishing house so that everyone can go to their local bookstore and pick up his work. Until then, I will continue recommending this book to everyone I can.
