Read The Summer Tree

The need of Fionavar and all the worlds was great indeedAnd in a marvelous land of men and dwarves of wizards and gods and of the Unraveller and his minions of Darkness Kimberly Dave Jennifer Kevin and Paul discovered who they were truly meant Five Canadian college students are transported to a magical kingdom and all of them are pretty blas about it Their lack of reaction cued me in pretty early on that I wasn t going to like this book None of these characters felt like real people to me the students are pretty interchangeable one s a bit crankier one has guilt two possess vaginas and they all completely lack one of the most important things in my opinion for a successful fantasy novel a sense of wonder Nothing about this other magical realm felt wondrous so when it was threatened I couldn t bring myself to care Which is a pity because I felt there were some interesting ideas buried in here Paul s story of redemption and self sacrifice is the type of thing that s usually right up my alley But it was stuck under a mountain of overwrought prose and I m not willing to wade through thatPlus FUN BONUS there was a brutal rape scene right at the end makes cranky face
