Have you read it? I've wanted to but haven't, you know?
Yes, and no.
Zelazny is a great writer but LoL just didn't work for me.
Perhaps I was too young when I read it and never appreciated how original the story is, or it just went way over my head at the time. It's probably a book I should rediscover when I get the time.
Review copied into post rather than just a link of "Here's My Review" which is against our policy and has been stated in the past
Could you have maybe put an even more misleading title? I've read it. The book is pure genius. Here's my review:, which appears on the SFF Masterworks blog: Moving on now...
I agree, this book is genius. Taking on the guise of Bhudda to fight against "gods" from Indian mythology is an amazing idea. And yes, Christianity sneaks in as well.
The same here, although I was not young when I read it, 30+.
I loved The Great Book of Amber. Some of the best fantasy series I have read.
On the other hand I disliked Lord of Light. Boring, old-fashioned, confusing.
