(this edition is out of print) ---------------- Reader Remarks: In Swords of Lankhmar, Fritz Lieber combines action with drama and suspense with excitement. He tells the story from a third person point of view. In the book he does not just tell you the description he shows it to you in your mind. He lets you imagine the characters and leaves room for you to make the features of them. He does all this without leaving out any details that are necessary to the story. It is a fantasy book that will appeal to all ages. The two main characters, Fafhrd and the Mouser, are rebels and do what they want when they want. They are an unbeatable force that adventures through different provinces, continents and worlds. They meet new and different people or creatures wherever the journey. They learn form past experiences some easier than others. The two are funny many times but at the action scenes it is like you can see them fighting right in front of you. They persevere through the hardest times while making friends and enemies along the way. In this book they fight human rats, dead warriors and Mongolians. To fully understand some of the conversations you need to read the earlier books in the series. With almost all of their adventures you can recognize what they are talking about without reading the other books. The worlds and provinces are easy to relate to and can be compared to many places on earth. But for some of the places it is an entirely new concept that takes an imagination to realize. The books are a must-read that teach people many things about human personalities.
