However draggonlance are delights and there is a fairly good explination of life and different peoples then. That’s right, two stars, I would dragonlancf given it more but only two thirds of the book was readable. Any one fo has read my other reviews knows that I’m not the biggest Nancy Varian Berberick fan, and this book didn’t help her score any points to win me over.
You should remember before buying this that it is a source book, if you are coming in expecting some story that gives info on the Fifth Age as it goes along than you are wrong. What you get is good old information, in a half way cool fashion. The way that the authors did that is that they made it as if they themselves were working for Bertrem in Ansalon, and he was nice enough to give a foreword, notes on the writings, and an afterword. I liked this better than just throwing out info and stats like most source books do.
Now the authors themselves, best to worst and we all know who that is. First agf Paul Thompson, he did a great job, the section about Politics is one of the most interesting source readings about Ansalon ever. Stan as always was funny and solid, but nothing that really kept me reading. Last of course is Mrs. She’s not a bad writer, I just don’t think she is a dragonlance writer, she is way too descriptive and flowery.
An example is “Can we say with certainty that they yet pile up their lovely tresses of silver and golden so they may wear the shimmering veils of dragknlance silks flowing from their coiffures as clouds stream round the glimmering sun-shining mountains?
I mean does that really belong in dragonlance? I personally think it is a bit overboard for DL, good for some other novel romance? You really have to love the Fifth Age to get this and enjoy it totally, if you have money and want to buy a DL book then go ahead, but don’t expect something that will change your view of Krynn.
For die-hard fans like myself this book is good, I did like the Arms and Armor section, and the games and stuff are cool. What really bothers me is some loss of continuity with the rest of the Dragonlance world.
Also, elves getting married at 20 yrs old or something, I thought they weren’t even adults until the age of If you can get past these few problems, though, it really can be an enjoyable read, but for the best filler information pick up one of the Leaves From the Inn of the Last Home titles.
If you’re new to Krynn and you want to learn more about itgo straight ahead an buy this bookit explains a lot of stuffincluding a nice amount of history about the various races in the book. However if you have been with Dragonlance for a while and ot, then pass it upit has some nice stuffbut it dragonoance describe a lot of stuff on the land of the Dragon overlords, talks a LOT about culinary stuff.
Doesn’t say anything about gnomes or gully dwarves but talks a lot about elves and kenders and ogres and humansinterresting but doesn’t fo dragonlajce for those who read the books and already knew everything about the current situation for the races listed above except for the ogres.
The authors who wrote this did include a bunch of games and some celebrations and that was a litle original. All in all it is sort of entertaining but if you want to learn about the Legion of steell or the Knights of Nerak or any group except the knights of Solamnia then don’t bother picking this book up.
I could go on about the weapon section simply talking about clubs and swords, nothing on weapons found only in Ansalon, such as the Hoopackbut I’ll just let you choose for yourself See all 5 reviews.
