incredible description of the music
on January 3, 2014
The one thing that most stands out to me about this novel was the amazing job Martin did describing the music. I have never read something that made me want so badly to listen to the music. I very much wish the Nazgul were a real band because their music sounds incredible. The novel also did an excellent job of weaving in the tale of the 60's counter-culture movement. I learned a great deal from it and I consider myself reasonably well educated.
The story itself is an engaging tale of a man coming to grips with his past and who he has become interwoven with the story of good people doing great evil. It has a bit of magic/fantasy elements but is primarily a modern character based story that is well worth the read.
