You'll probably never see this comment as I'm posting it four months later, but I just found your blog through Gail Gauthier's Original Content and I have to say I agree with you here. "Shadowmancer" is truly the most awful book ever written. Awful. Awful. Did I mention it was awful?


I keep a pretty close eye on my comments!

Glad to know there are others out there that agree with me about Shadowmancer.


Have you ever tried to read Tersias?
God. I almost lost the will to live. It was really THAT BAD.


My friend gave me Shadowmancer for my birthday. That was 6 months ago. I still haven`t mustered up the courage to finish it. I dont really want to die of boredom.

In regard to friends who give you gifts like that like that, remember what Peter Schickele said about his Unbegun Symphony:

You may not know it, but symphonies aren't usually named by the composer himself - names usually come from histrians, or the composer's friends or something like that.

Well, when I played this for my friends, they decided it should be called the Pathetic Symphony.

I have new friends, now, and we're calling it the Unbegun Symphony

I dissagree i thought that this book was very good. It talked about god and showed what his power can really do. The only part I disliked was the ending and that was because it was a continuation to the next book.


Look, if you want to make evaluative claims about the significance of a literary work you have to give some reasons and criteria for the value of what your says which goes beyond personal subjectivity like "its boring' or "its the worst book ever" Why is it boring? Why is it bad?


I could not read this book. I started it, and stopped after (I think) one or two chapters. I can't make any statements about the plot, because I didn't finish it. Why didn't I finish it?

The writing. Oh, God, the writing.

When a book's prose makes me nostalgic for the drek I wrote at age 11, it's time to set the book down and walk away.
