Read full description of the books:
This is one of my all-time favorite series and I reread it almost every year. That being said, I can understand why many people have given it negative reviews. There are two things that are cited most often 1) the slow start and 2)that there is nothing new (no new magic system, cultures are copies of Earth cultures, main character follows scullion to hero story, etc.), and I want to briefly address both those concerns before giving my final recommendation.
Whenever I recommend this series to someone, I always say that if they can make it through the first 150 pages, they will love it. That inevitably elicits a groan and a question of why they should waste their time on something that starts off so slowly. The answer is that Williams needs that much time to introduce most his characters and to establish the history and mythology necessary to easily follow the rest of the story. He goes on to reveal more about the history of Osten Ard (the world of MS&T) and he introduces more characters, but the basis is found in this first 150 pages, and it helps to form a deep and beautiful world.
As I said before, the second main concern I've heard is that there is nothing new in the series, and by and large that's true. So why did I give this series 5 stars? Because Tad Williams understands something that escapes many authors: GREAT CHARACTERS MAKE A STORY, NOT NEW ELEMENTS! A good story comes not from the things that happen, but from how those occurences change the people in the story. For instance, over the course of the series, the main protagonist, Simon, changes from a whiny, lazy kid that I just can't stand (each time I read it, I want to smack him in the head!), to a sort of philosopher-soldier. The gradual change in his view of the world and his responibility toward others is a beautiful thing to see!
I first read these books when I was 16 years old, and over the last 15 years I've read them again and again. When I was younger I was most enthralled with the heroic aspects (The magic, the fighting, and the quest), but now that I'm a bit older, I find the bits of philosophy that are intermingled with the story to be the most fascinating (although I do still enjoy the other parts).
I can't recommend this story enough!
