    1. Soul saddened SIGH Damn, damn, DAMNfe can really be full of suck This book really torched my hopes and dreams NOT because it was nightmarishly horrible which it wasn t but because I wanted it to be so brimming with steaming chunks of mouth watering awesome that I could write a stinging, snark filled anti anti Thomas Covenant review rant against the ranters.I suspected I had a excellent chance of really liking this story because most of the criticism of the series revolves around how douchy and u [...]

    2. I ve often lamented that five star rating systems, such as the one used by GoodReads, don t allow for ratings lower than one star Were it possible, I d give this book negative stars I think it actually sucks the quality away from books shelved near it, and generally makes the world a less joyful, less intelligent place to be.You might assume from the previous statements that I dislike this book Given that dislike is a pretty mild, milquetoast term on the sliding scale of affection, you would be [...]

    3. I read Lord Foul s Bane once in grade seven the same year I first read Macbeth and Lady Chatterly s Lover, and The Lord of the Rings for a second time It was a good year for me and reading And an important year for who I would become But I didn t know until now how important Lord Foul s Bane was to all of that.This story has stuck with me in the most amazing ways After nearly three decades, I recalled an amazing amount of detail in the pages I reread I remembered minute details about Thomas Cove [...]

    4. Wow I really didn t like this book.I think it was in large part due to the fact that I found the main character so utterly unlikable Heck, he s even despicable.Some people can read and enjoy a book despite not being able to empathize with the characters I m not one of those people I actually like to care about my fictional characters It s pretty hard to give a flying fickle about some cranky jerk who rapes a woman in the first book I didn t bother reading to find out if things improved from the [...]

    5. This isn t so much a review of the book as a response to other reviews I have read by people who hated it, and hated it specifically because they see the protagonist, Thomas Covenant, as unlikeable weak, whiny, and self pitying and or because of the rape scene included in it My position is essentially this You can hate a character for many good reasons, but having no clue who he really is, is not one of them.Some readers seem to want to excuse Covenant to some extent as an anti hero, but I think [...]

    6. OMG that was a rather difficult book to get into I mean, most of the time I had keep re shifting the gears in my head to see what might be valuable and good about this book, and for a great 200 pages I was wondering if I had stumbled into another Eddings slogfest full of completely predictable situations and heroes, with only the main character being a bit out of the ordinary.And then I had to remind myself that this came out in 1977 and the cult fantasy favourite as opposed to the mainstream fa [...]

    7. Thomas Covenant had it all a good family, his first book was a New York Times bestseller, his second book was in the progress Suddenly he developed leprosy, his wife left him taking his son with her, people avoid any kind of contact with him turning him into a self loathing bitter whining person He is a leper outcast unclean.Some high powers brought him to magic land where he is destined to either help fight Great Evil, or destroy everything the choice is his The problem is he does not really be [...]

    8. I am albeit slowly removing my reviews from since it has become For on why that bothers me and should bother you, please go to my profile and also here review show What I learned from this book.Don t agree to read the book Robert tells you is the best book in the whole world ever just because he invited you over to watch the best film in the whole world ever Close Encounters and you slept through all but the first ten minutes.You know you are going to hate this book before you ve even opened it [...]

    9. I live in a smallish room with roughly a couple of thousand books They are everywhere I love the books, but I also hate the books I d have space if it wasn t for them, when I moved it would be easy if it didn t involve carrying what feels like an endless amount of heavy boxes packed with them They are everywhere The bookshelves are all double stacked There are books on top of the normally shelved books There are piles of them everywhere They fall over They are in the way Mooncheese likes to knoc [...]

    10. Two years after my run in with the fallen nun and the c word, I had a near run in with our new vice principal not the man, thankfully, who d given me the strap , Mr G Our school was trying to teach us study skills before we reached high school, so we wouldn t waste our spare periods playing video games or flirting with girls or role playing or whatever else kids did to waste time in the eighties They gave us a course called Study Hall and put our VP in charge It was a nightmare.And I was going t [...]

    11. When you dream, are you responsible for your actions You might as well admit it you d probably do it, too When Thomas Covenant a writer who contracts leprosy and is abandoned by his wife, his friends, and society falls into a comatose state, he arrives at a land where his nerves are regenerated, his impotency reversed, his status legendary as White Gold Wielder He s the Unbeliever for a simple reason he thinks this is all delusion, all a dream So, yes, he rapes the young woman it s all a dream, [...]

    12. So many people love this series Not sure why The hero is a leperous no, not lecherous rapist and incredibly whiny The bad guy is named Lord Foul, ferchissakes I hated everything about the first few chapters of this book Once the main character forced himself on a girl, and then the author tried to make it a sympathetic moment for the perpetrator , I hurled it at the wall in disgust and never finished reading it Right around the same level of arrogant sexist manhood as Piers Anthony.

    13. It s not so much the story in itself, this is a well crafted fantasy world, complete with noble horse riding peoples, stern giants, and delicate elven folk on a quest of profound importance against an enemy of world shattering magnitude as much as Donaldson s overwrought prose that makes this series something of a drag to read Donaldson wants his tale to carry all the mythic import of Tolkien, but he doesn t quite have the poetic flair that makes Tolkien s characters live and breathe for us Inst [...]

    14. The Thomas Covenant books have always held a special place in my heart I freely admit that the series is not for everyone the singular nature of the protagonist turns a lot of readers away before the first book this one is halfway finished.Compared to other heroic fantasy, I find the Covenant books to be somehow believable, and to have emotional impact The theme of redemption, present throughout the series, resonated with me when I first read the books twenty years ago, and continues to resona [...]

    15. SPOILERS BELOWThis book was in it s own way well written or at least fairly well written It s well written in that it dragged me in, sort of Often I wished it hadn t Thomas Covenant is one of the universe s great whiners You see, Thomas is a leperd while I can t imagine how awful this would be wife leaves and takes child, loses fingers before realizing condition, etcetc etc he manages to drive any sympathy out of the readers, or he did me Upon being healed in THE LAND he s afraid to believe as i [...]

    16. A Swedish friend told me I just had to read this series it was like Tolkien but better I borrowed the first three, and dutifully read them, waiting for the point to dawn It never did Tolkien, to me, is all about the language and the names, and Donaldson s names ranged between uninspired and downright moronic Berek Halfhand Bleah It just grated.To add insult to injury, I managed to drop one volume into the bath while reading it, so I had to buy a new copy to return to him I ve not looked at Donal [...]

    17. The first thing you have to know about this series, and this is the real pivotal point in whether you want to read them or not, is that Thomas Coveenant is NOT A HERO Like, in any sense There are a couple really fantastic heroes in this book, but all of the chapters in the 1st book, and the majority thereafter all center around covenant, the unbeliever The story of the book is honestly a little trite An evil lord threatening a beautiful land Covenenant has an important ring But Thomas, oh thomas [...]

    18. Hated it 1.5 stars Terrible characters, info dumping, purple prose, gratuitous rape, and a frequently offputting word choice I couldn t connect to any of the characters and I at no moment felt concern or anxiety for anyone s well being I would have loved for Covenant to die but he s the crux of the series and no other character had an iota of personality so I didn t care about them I couldn t make myself care about the quest Donaldson is a pale and pathetic shade of Tolkien and I ll never consid [...]

    19. At first I wasn t sure that I liked this novel I had a hard time with the idea that Thomas Covenant is the ultimate anti hero, with none of the redeeming qualities of an average anti hero He is a sniveling, irritating, coward who has to be prodded every step of the way The only thing that makes him likable is that he is acting in a very human way in a very inhuman circumstance I had to let go of wanting Covenant to shape and act like a hero I am looking forward to the rest of the series.

    20. I feel kind of bad because my fellow author, Michael Suttkus who helped write I WAS A TEENAGE WEREDEER and LUCIFER S STAR swears by this series I knew getting into them that they were either love or hate but I feel like the big problem for me was I didn t think they were very good There s a lot to unpack here about the books but the majority of negative reviewers seem to focus on the INFAMOUS incident spoilers ahead versus the cliche setting, cardboard characters, and the fact Thomas is a person [...]

    21. I don t know what it is about Donaldson and rape It s getting kind of creepy actually His science fiction series included a major rape scene in book 1 and here we go again with another in Lord Foul s Bane In addition to the awful rape scene this book is also filled with characters that you have a really hard time liking or rooting for The writing itself is old style fantasy language which I don t prefer either I just didn t like it very much There are a ton of people who swear by this series but [...]

    22. Well that started off a lot better than I thought it might And it ended a lot worse than I hoped it might.My full and this one is very full review can be found over on my blog.However, the brief summary version would be this is a fascinating Calvinist though the author left the faith of his parents reimagining of Tolkienian neo Romantic fantasy, with a rich but in my opinion not yet absurd use of language, dozens of fantastic lines, and a deep and calculated ideological theological symbolism It [...]

    23. DNFI m sure there is a beautiful story arc where Tomas Covenant becomes a good person but I didn t want to needlessly subject myself to this story at this point.

    24. Another series I did in one long weekend, this was probably one of the most influential series I read during high school For some reason I absolutely hated the main character Thomas Conevenant probably because he was an ass and my one driving passion was to keep reading until he was killed off Until of course the last book in the second series where I got over it and decided he should live and then he was killed off As an interesting aside, this series made it remarkably less likely that I would [...]

    25. Warning Readers should not expect the main character to show up, draw a magic scimitar or lightsaber, and slice through the enemy In this series, the bad guys are just part of Thomas Covenant s problem He is also fighting enemies within himself Be prepared to feel troubled over his plight and occasionally frustrated by his unwillingness to accept his situation and to fight There s still plenty of excitement and all the elements of well crafted fantasy But there s so much .

    26. This book is one of my earlier fantasy novel books that I attempted to read this depressing novel I ve tried twice, but never finished it I cannot recall much it is a good thing actually I am forgetting some bad moments of my life but I like to share my opinion here the main character is not likable based on his POV People in the story respect him because the prophecy and he has distinctive physical traits that can prove he is The One The depressing inner thought of character hardly entertained [...]

    27. this is my dad s all time favourite series and he is bugging me to read his comfort book , so I m making good on my reluctant promise lol

    28. I will leave this at the 5 stars I gave it This was a re read for me I was first introduced to Thomas Covenant over 20 years ago I did not like him them, but The Land and the People held me captive and I read all 6 books I know there are They have a special place in my heart After finally re reading this, I can say that I dislike Thomas Covenant even than I remember I almost quit reading because I could not get past my dislike I have decided that sometimes some books series are best left read [...]

    29. I read this book when I was in 5th or 6th grade I had just read lord of the rings, and I was searching through my dad s books for something else to read and I found this I remember thinking at the time that for as much as I liked the LOTR, the bad guys just weren t bad enough The good guys were a little too good For as much as I loved middle earth, I felt like the world Tolkien built was much grander and complex than the characters that inhabited it Lord Foul s Bane answered those issues and the [...]
