What do you people make of the Forgotten Realms books and others such as the Dragon Lance series?
I like some of them... The Ice Wind Dale books by Salvadore where good, but I never really enjoyed the Dark Elf books as much.
Otherwise I find alot of them to be quite poorly written, I did like the idea of them all taking place within a pre-existing world... but other than that their are not many that are really outstanding or particually readable.
I used to read quite a lot of them when I was younger (coz it was all the fantasy my local libary used to stock) and I did try to re-read the Pool of Radiance because I had it in game version but could not do it...
So what is the forums opinion on books within the Forgotten Realms world and also others like the Dragon Lance books and even the worse (in my humble view) the WarHammer books?
