Another Fine Myth
Why this book?
This is one of the most enjoyable series I have ever read. It takes you into a world so different from traditional fantasy stereotypes. The characters are flawed and imperfect and because of that they are so easy to sympathize with when things go wrong (and they will...repeatedly). The style the author used for the headers in each chapter was so entertaining to me that I still find myself quoting them to people, 20+ years after first reading them.
