Ravenloft: Tower of Doom based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Tower of Doom was not among the best Ravenlofts. In the beginning the main character, Wort, was full of pathos. You couldn¿t help liking him and getting keenly involved in his story. However, as the book progressed he grew less likable as his quest for revenge changed his personality from completely angelic to completely demonic and ultimately causes the reader to go from loving him to loathing him. Instead of being a good revenge story as I had anticipated, Wort went too far, entangling other innocent parties in his quest for vengeance . When the story ended ,I had lost all compassion for his predicament and all interest in his being avenged. Also, I felt that there was not enough focus on the other characters in the novel. For instance, Jadis, the werepanther, a Kargat spy, was an interesting character, albeit, the novel disclosed little information about her and she was rarely the focus of any of the chapters. The main reason I did not enjoy the book was due to its utter grossness. Ninety percent of the novel was peppered with so many repulsive scenes that after reading them I was unable to eat. Some scenes went so far as to nearly make me ill. I would not recommend this book to anyone with a weak stomach or anyone who does not enjoy overtly graphic horror novels.
