    “He who is certain he knows the ending of things when he is only beginning them is either extremely wise or extremely foolish; no matter which is true he is certainly an unhappy man for he has put a knife in the heart of wonder” anuc Proverb The Dragonbone Chair is chock and block full of wonder If you have the patience to master this piece of work it is incredibly dense and filled with first class world building and heaps of lore you'll find it an extremely rewarding experience It is a slow burner especially the first third of the novel titled Simon Mooncalf but once the simmer turns into a boil there's no stopping the storyRecommended for everybody who likes their fantasy served with a hefty dose of EPIC

    A classic in the fantasy field this is best suited for readers looking for the traditional orphan identity uest While I enjoyed it overall I was able to set the book down and walk away coming and going from the story until Simon reached the woods I consider it a bad sign when I'm able to set a book down my favorites have me locked into reading position until I reach the end page Eventually it picked up and reeled me in but there was skimming involved A combination coming of age and castlekingdom political novel I felt like the book would have benefited from focusing on one or the other As it was the politics were mostly the side story and I largely skimmed over those sections of the book without any real decrease in enjoyment of Simon's story It's classic high fantasy with full landscapes and world building starting from the castle to underground tunnels to a deep forest to a deserted Sithi read elven city a highlands castle and a mountain When the book ends with Simon and other adventurers sent on a journey for a missing sword it's almost shocking that it's not a ring I like that Williams' world contains non human races There is the most interesting take on trolls that I've read yet Binobik and his wolf uickly became my favorite characters The white hounds and the Bakken bring nicely frightening elements to the storyOne frustration is that Simon's development seemed very uneven and unlikely to me that parts of his political and intellectual consciousness seemed so limited even when being taught by the doctor He does indeed behave like a fourteen year old boy at the beginning of the story and credit to Williams for capturing that well enough to be annoying Every time you turn around he's complaining about reading and his refrain lasts for some time even into his forest journey However view spoiler rescuing the Prince should have been the beginning of a political awakening hide spoiler

    Okay so I almost dnf’d this book BUT I read a friends review that said the same thing but they pushed on and loved it Soooo I did the same thing with some skimming and decided I’m just here for the wolf and the troll Okay so I like some others but still 😉I love you antaa 🐺🐾 Even though she was a white babe turned grey I have to use my black beauty Wolfen 😘🐺Mel 🖤🐶🐺🐾

    The opening to what is easily the best fantasy series I've ever read Williams' Memory Sorrow and Thorn remains IMHO one of the most underread and underappreciated series out there I suspect that the length of the novels scares some people off; Dragonbone Chair is the shortest and it's still around 700 pages The series as a whole incorporates most classical fantasy elements an epic uest dark sorcery an unlikely hero etc but what makes it unforgettable for me is one main thing Williams nailed the world building While he retains a lot of traditional fantasy elements they all show up in new ways and forms I can't think of a single time where I thought This has been done before and that's rare considering the amount of fantasy literature I've read The land of Osten Ard remains one of the most vivid locales in literature I've read and its inhabitants are incredibly memorable as well

    I came into this book a little forewarned by the good readers here at Goodreads that this book is a SLOW buildup 0 20% slow 20 30% something could happen are we leaving yet? 30 35% is this it? No false start 35 45% OK we left the castle something has to happen right? 45% end Bam Fires dragons magic swords trolls elves demons mountains crossing the map wolves good and bad bad dreamsgood dreams death sieges magical storms shipsThe slow build up eventually drops you off the cliff into a sea of epic fantasy and it is worth it Looking forward to picking up where the 1st book left off and would recommend this book with the warning it is indeed a slow build up to what ultimately looks to be some good epic fantasy


  6. Anthony Ryan Anthony Ryan says:

    One of the seminal works of epic fantasy which along with the works of Robert Jordan and David Eddings made the genre what it is today Williams makes a virtue of starting small as we follow orphaned kitchen boy Simeon through his childhood in the castle of King Prester John However the king's death heralds an age of discord and Simeon finds himself drawn into valiant Prince Josua's rebellion against his increasingly despotic and magically deranged brother The scope of the story expands with every succeeding chapter escapes and battles abound as the conflict escalates all expertly woven into a complex but satisfying whole by Williams' flawless prose and plotting If you're a fantasy fan and you haven't read this you're really not trying


  7. Nick Borrelli Nick Borrelli says:

    Truly a masterpiece and probably my favorite Fantasy book of all time The rest of the series is pretty awesome as well Also the most evil villain bar none of any Fantasy series I've ever read in Pryrates the evil priest If you haven't read Memory Sorrow and Thorn in its entirety you really must This is what made me a Tad Williams fan for life

    “Books are a form of magic because they span time and distance surely than any spell and charm” The Dragonbone Chair is the first book in Tad Williams’ Memory Sorrow and Thorn series and an amazing coming of age story which probably had big enough impact to shape and influence many of today’s popular writers of this genre For that alone it is my opinion that it should be visited at least once in a lifetime no matter of someone’s preference in their genresA truly magnificent worldbuilding written with astonishingly beautiful proseSadly my own infatuation ends there since Tad was focused on worldbuilding so much that he made character development feel almost secondary And if that is combined with the poor story we have already devoured on multiple iterations over decades with Tolkien Feist and numerous others – finishing result is that this book seems only as a half measure of its actual worth 291 Story and Characters The main story follows our main protagonist Simon a fourteen year old kitchen boy serving in the ancient castle Hayholt His story is divided into three parts Simon Mooncalf Simon Pilgrim and Simon Snowlock It’s the first part I want to focus on here because it’s the one I actually enjoyed the most while reading Simon Mooncalf story carefully sets the groundwork to introduce readers with the world its history magic set of characters and political currents surrounding themIt’s a story about a boy living uite secure and boring life in a castle all while his head is filled with wants and needs of becoming someone else A common childlike desire that comes from listening all those legends of old and ‘stories about past’ – but not history mind you – which preferably excluded those boring parts from them such as names and years Stories which were left with nothing but exiting heroic battlesThere is nothing that can persuade this boy from lazing around the castle not a broomstick nor a bucket not even apprenticeship with castle’s main doctorwizard Morgenes to educate him to actually become something than a kitchen boy Like any fourteen year old he is unable to recognize someone’s effort to help him and steer him into a right direction because soldering and becoming a hero is all that preoccupies him without having slightest notice what that actually meansAnd in it there’s this beautiful relationship between Master and Apprentice which reminded me of that one of Merlin’s with Arthur’s in The Sword in the Stone where one tries to teach the other of ways of life but other keeps struggling with incomprehension and stays uite ignorant Until he is forced to learn the hard way And this is a repetition Tad will use uite regularly throughout the 800 pages of this book and other two stories which is why this first one is a dearest one for me because I couldn’t shake away the feeling how someone’s robing that special bond from them whenever someone new would come into Simon’s life and tried to speak some sense and knowledge into that thick head of hisRest of the stories and the book I’m leaving for you to find out Worldbuilding and Prose I have seen that the most common complaint was actually this first story Troubles were either its pacing or how slow it was or endless info dumps I don’t agree with those complaints but I understand why they are thereI actually liked how history of this world was told through classes Simon had with Morgenes; how stories he would told him were filled with names and years; how he would describe some minor thing in details and the moment your head starts falling and you start dozing off Morgenes would stop himself and ask if he was boring you so that both Simon and you yourself would feel slightly embarrassed for being caught wanting to hear about those magnificent heroic battles I came here for battles not boring facts old manBut that’s part of Tad’s worlbuilding and his preparation of you to later distinguish why character A is doing something while character B is opposingWas it really necessary for world to be so vivid and described with so many details? Of course it wasBut was it necessary to describe stains of papyrus which sits on a scratched cobwebbed bookcase that faces darker western corner of the room impractically occupying enough space for front door to be opened completely – all of which is obviously mason’s mistake for making inner walls not just uneven but thin enough in the first place – while the only natural source of light comes from the southern window too high to brighten the entire room? Oh yes Yes it was absolutely necessary That’s wordbuilding Sure there’s no need to describe in so many details especially if author’s prose is slightly better than that of middle grader but when an author has an ability to express what’s inside his mind so colorfully that should be revered not something to complain aboutWhich reminds me – something to complain about Well I won’t do that much As I said story is seen through many books since and characters even though many of them are present only one seemed developed enough main one But this is a book published in 1988 My complaints aren’t actually complaints about the book itself I’m just to a degree saddened that epic fantasy as a genre made big progress since But also at the same time in many things that this book excels genre today still lacksSomething to think about

    Dear Tad WilliamsI cannot thank you enough for writing a bookwell set of booksthat I can read as a full on grown up and still enjoy as much as I did when I was an angsty teenagerIt has been hurtful to find so many of my favorite when I was young reads looking at you Shannara and DragonLance aren't actually good at all and that I must adore them from afar with only sentimentality stoking the fires of young loveThank you for not adding to that hurt I appreciate the effort you put into this story allowing it to be readable throughout different cycles of lifeYour fanErica
