Christopher Paolini talks about Tad

Deborah Beale here (Tad partner & wife): we recently received this rave review from Christopher Paolini, and I thought I would take the liberty of posting it here.

Deborah Beale here (Tad partner & wife): we recently received this rave review from Christopher Paolini, and I thought I would take the liberty of posting it here.


"Tad Williams is a huge inspiration for me. He's one of the main reasons I started writing fantasy. His books are epic, exciting, and filled with fascinating characters. When it comes to inventing imaginary worlds, he's as skilled as J.R.R. Tolkien and Frank Herbert.

"Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn is one of the great fantasy epics of all time. I can't even remember how many times I've read it. It kept me so enthralled, I plowed through the last book in just one sitting! Here be magic, dragons, sprawling battles, thrilling feats of derring-do, ancient mysteries, hidden secrets-all the things a good story needs. These are the books, along with a few others, that led me to write Eragon.

"Otherland is an awesome sci-fi story. The scale of Tad Williams' ambition and accomplishments as a storyteller in this series is amazing. He weaves together so many characters, locations, and unique worlds, you can't help but be impressed! Also, with Otherland Tad predicted the rise of the internet and online gaming long before it was invented.

"Tad Williams' work is an essential part of any science fiction and fantasy library. I look forward to each new book he writes. If you like exciting, thought-provoking fiction, you owe it to yourself to give Tad a try.

"His books are thick enough to stop a bullet! I know!" - Christopher Paolini

Awful

I am a fan of Robin Hobb and George R.R. Martin. This series was recommended. I should have stopped with the first book. The twins are not likeable characters, so it is hard to care about what happens to them. The first book was boring. The second and third pull you...
I am a fan of Robin Hobb and George R.R. Martin. This series was recommended. I should have stopped with the first book. The twins are not likeable characters, so it is hard to care about what happens to them. The first book was boring. The second and third pull you in. The fourth is a terrible, boring disappointment.

P.S. Ferras Vansen deserves better.
