One of the best series I've ever read. But ~ it's dark, so don't expect 'light hearted'. If you like the first trilogy, there is also a second trilogy. In my opinion, "must" reading for fantasy lovers.

An absolutely amazing novel (and series), with a main character is who utterly flawed and unbearably human. Whether you love or hate Thomas Covenant as a person, his journey is wonderful and this book is a must for all fantasy fans.

This is a story with an ultimate anti-hero. I tell you, I could not stand this guy -- he has leporasy and is the ultimate weakling --

Through a series of events, he is transported to a world which he thinks is a dream. He is utterly unprepared for the goings on and completely inept at protecting himself but somehow, through other people's sacrifice, he seems to rescue the entire "make believe" world.
