This really goes over five stars if there was a choice!

Yes, it is sort of slow at first, but there is something in the book that makes you keep reading, and when you get to page 75 or so you cannot put it down! By page 200 it was straight to my top 10 list(maybe even 5). There is a little bit of love, extreme action, supens...
Yes, it is sort of slow at first, but there is something in the book that makes you keep reading, and when you get to page 75 or so you cannot put it down! By page 200 it was straight to my top 10 list(maybe even 5). There is a little bit of love, extreme action, supense, danger, and twists and turns here and there. That silly kender Tasslehoff tips it off with humor. Slowly it builds up from some friends meeting to them fighting a Dragon Highlord! If you like swords, magic, love, humor, action, adventure, dragons and walking warrior skeletons, BUY THIS BOOK(at the very least read it)! I CAN GARANTEE YOU WILL NOT REGRET YOUR CHOICE!!!!! But all in all this book is undescribably one of the best books ever written.

There's been so much hoo-haw about Dragonlance recently, that I figured I'd finally grab a copy and see what the fuss is about.

Now, granted, the very first book written was probably not the *best* choice, seeing as the authors were just getting themselves wrapped around the novelization of a D&D adventure, but it was the start of the saga, so it did seem like the right place to begin.

But the book has trouble. It's got way too many characters in it to be anything more than a plot-driven story, and the themes of the characters in the story never get explored as fully as they ought. There are sections describing underground exploration where lots of words are wasted describing the length of corridors. It feels like it's struggling with the question of whether its audience is adult or not.

The end result is a book that probably really appealed to 13-year-olds back in the early 80s. Today? There are many many more well-written books for 13-year-olds, and it's not all that great a journey for adults in any era. I did want to see how the book ended, so it was better than something needing only to be tossed out, but its companions will suffer at the bottom of my book pile for quite a while, as I pursue other, better written books.

    A good start to what may prove to be a good series!

    This story has a lot of characters to explain in the begining, which makes it drag just a bit. As the adventures start and each character develops, you begin to warm to the Quest. By the end of the book, you may well find your self looking forward to the next book. I know I did.

    Very long, very slow, and very funny

    Those three things are what I can only describe of this book. The book was long, but I liked how the chapters were only a few pages long. It was slow in some parts and could have been avoided. Fizban, the old wizard, was a very very very very funny character with his dimwit humor. I enjoyed the ending, and am reading the second installment of Chronicles. By the way...RAISTLIN RULES!!!!!

    EXCELLENT!

    I'm 11 and I am just starting to read the series. I used to watch mum laughing & crying about the books and I would wonder when I would get to read them. I'm just getting to the fun bit, it's already really good

    One of the Best

    This book was one of the best I have ever read. I recommend it to anyone who loves fantasy. It's not the best DragonLance book i have ever read but it is close to the top of my list. The plot is great and the characters are better. Plus it doesn't leave you hanging as much as some of the other books.
