Lord of Light


I'm a very big fan of the Amber chronicles, but I couldn't get into this book.

The writing felt heavy handed, and I didn't care for the characters - much like you don't really care for characters in most myths: they feel impersonal, archetypical, cardboardlike.

I tried, but I couldn't finish it, stopped 1/3rd in. Maybe if I'd read on everything (story, characters) would have become more alive, but my intuition said 'no'.
