The first five are narrated by Corwin, a Prince of Amber; the second five are narrated by Merlin, Corwin's son. I could already hear his mind clicking: Corwin brought me here to betray me, he was saying to himself. I remember, like it was yesterday, the moment I picked up this book in a library. It is now! But I couldn’t not check it out. A few of the minor plot points/expositions, in the ways in which details were added, broke the immersion for me. It goes under a few different names, but seeing as how I read the Omnibus edition titled The Great Book of Amber, I figured I would discuss that here. But then some of the choices just seem weird, like a giant belt. It wasn’t as great as I expected it to be, even though the writing style is one I very much like. Contact Jeremy at bolthy@gmail.com. I still play a little bit daily and have had generally good luck, though I suspect that they give infrequent players good luck in order to encourage them to play more (and spend more). That’s how far we could trust one another. We’d love your help. Since I was not what one would consider an avid reader at the time, I was surprised by how quickly I was consumed by this book. If you’re just morbidly curious, then maybe keep walking. The banter was witty and quick and full of laughs. We’d love your help. It is very interesting to read them this way, with no warning that what seems to be a mysterious but mundane situation is going to transmute into a world-bending fantasy. 2.5 stars rounded up erring on the side of the notion that the battle part was meant as parody. In a few spots there was too much exposition that didn’t move the plot along. I remember, like it was yesterday, the moment I picked up this book in a library. A pioneer among the novels involving the "multiverse," this story portrarys multiple dimensions (or multiuple realities) in fantasy rather than science fiction terms.

It is very interesting to read them this way, with no warning that what seems to be a mysterious but mundane situation is going to transmute into a world-bending fantasy. Only it wasn't yesterday, it was about 15 years ago, but what is time when you're in love. ( Log Out /  Since I was not what one would consider an avid reader at the time, I was surprised by how quickly I was consumed by this book. I first read it as a teenager. The writing style and plot of The Chronicles of Amber was just great. I recall being 13 at my grandmothers for Thanksgiving with this edition fresh from the Science Fiction Book Club. That was kind of a fun-ish romp. Thus was I introduced to the writings of Roger Zelazny. The first book of the two collected in this volume. I will make it brief. There’s a big red jewel that I’m assuming is the Jewel of Judgment and Corwin’s silver gloves. From Arden to the blood-slippery Stairway into the Sea, the air is electrified with the powers of Eric, Random, Bleys, Caine, and all the princes of Amber whom Corwin must overcome. Amber burns in Corwin's blood. Zelazny has the oddest writing styles I've ever seen. He has no memories but knows he must bluff his way into freedom. A few audacious con-man moves later, he is travelling between alternate worlds, alternately fleeing, fighting and helping his numerous siblings. You start off in “Shadow.” In other games, you play for coins for the chance to win more coins. This series is the first of the two reasons 75% of the books I read are fantasy. I must admit the idea of traveling through shadow challenges my mind and I don't really grasp what kind of beings the princes are, nor why Amber is such a treasured land, nor why they are essentially immortal. The Amber Chronicles is 10 books in total. So far I have finished the first two novels; the Nine Princes in Amber and the Guns of Avalon. We've got you covered with the buzziest new releases of the day. I found the books as interesting and stylish as I remembered. And yet he has some of the most beautiful single lines I've ever read and a story/world that you can just fall into. The first of a series - (eventually) Ten books! Alternate cover edition can be found here Roger Zelazny's chronicles of Amber have earned their place as all-time classics of imaginative literature. I did fall in love with this series. The Chronicles of Amber stands as my favorite all time series. Interesting, but not my favorite from this author. Need another excuse to treat yourself to a new book this week? Is this game for you? Be the first to ask a question about The Chronicles of Amber. Having read this book for the first time all that time ago, my initial reaction was a very favourable one. And I have no clue what the overlap is between fans of slot machine games and fans of fantasy fiction by an author that’s been dead for 25 years. Once you get into the app, you don’t get access to The Chronicles of Amber slot machine game right away. They’re pretty much the same, in all honesty I can say that my original impression never really changed. The five volumes of The Chronicles of Amber were published between 1970 and 1978 and became Zelazny’s most popular and commercially successful work, spawning spin-off computer and role-playing games, conventions, compendiums, artwork, costumes, fanzines, and fan fiction.
