Lord Foul's Bane was an excellent read because it introduces the reader to one of the most frustrating and yet endearing protagonists in all of fantasy. Donaldson created a richly detailed world in The Land and an array of characters from the loveable Saltheart Foamfollower to the repulsive Drool Rockworm to the hated Lord Foul who stirs the pot from beginning to end. The author combines a strong plot and serious writing ability to have the reader on an emotional roller coaster and begging for more.

When Covenant first drops into "The Land" from our real world I thought I could predict the rest of the plot in its entirety. He would be raised from his depression by the new, noble purpose of saving this beautiful alternate universe, and he would kick a lot of butt along the way.

This book is an awesome novel. I really liked how the rape of Lena fits into how Atarian ends up to want to stab Covenant. I really liked how the author keeps his story interesting throughout the entire novel, and does not start to lose my interest. Others' opinion may differ from mine, but I found it really interesting.
