Stone of Farewell by Tad Williams

Memory, Sorrow and Thorn, Vol 2: Stone of Farewell Memory, Sorrow and Thorn, Vol 2: Stone of Farewell by Tad Williams

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is part of a great series that I am happily revisting after many years. It was one of those books that years after I read it, I could remember bits and pieces of the story, but didn't remember which book they came from. Reading it again I am running into those bits and pieces that are fondly familiary. It is like running into a friend that you haven't seen in years, and you instantly rediscover all of your common interests, so you walk away wondering why you didn't keep in touch.

Unfortunately, I did notice that this book seems to get bogged down at times. To put it simply, Williams sometimes takes 10 words/paragraphs/pages to accomplish what could have been done in 2 words/paragraphs/pages. Still, it is just below the four-star level, and I am looking forward to the book 3... ok, book 3, volume 1. (Williams went yard with the third book.)
