The book I am reading at the moment...


'A mix of Lord of the Rings and Buffy the Vampire Slayer', Kevin J Anderson proclaims from the back of this book. Sounds exciting, doesn't it? Well, it's not. Not so far anyway. Long winded, rather boring prose. Hasn't grabbed my attention so far.

I just cant see JRR being too pleased that anyone would think of aligning Buffy with LOR. I can imagine his comments on the vampires and their lack of genelogy, consistancy, logic etc not to mention the where whys and hows of the slayer and I think he would wax quite loqucious (and not very favourably) on Buffy. Still I bet that line sold loads of the books and its a pity (after forking out the money) that it doesn't deliver.

I agree, I don't think JRR would have approved of Buffy, but I guess the line sold the book to me. Pity it doesn't live up to it.
