Quando sono venuta a conoscenza che "Taron e la Pentola Magica", che a suo tempo era il mio cartone animato preferito (ok, lo ammetto, è tutt'ora il mio cartone animato preferito), era stato tratto da una serie di romanzi, non ho potuto fare altro che acquistarli immediatamente.In tutto sono 6 romanzi (di cui solo 5 tradotti in italiano), suddivisi in due raccolte:I primi tre (Il Libro dei Tre, Il Calderone Nero e Il Castello di Lyrr) furono pubblicati nel 1986 sotto il nome de "La saga di Pryda...
Read these a long, long time ago when I was prowling the school library when I got into fantasy from historical fiction. I don't remember much about them, other than that I liked them. Wales is always a good land to draw inspiration from.
The Book of ThreeThe pacing is messy and a lot of characters and plot points come off as underwhelming and anticlimactic, but all in all it’s a fun little fantasy adventure with nonstop action and a bit of slapstick humor. I didn’t like Taran and his companions at first, but I think they have a lot of potential to grow on me in future installments. The books are short and easy to read so I’m willing to go through them. Hoping for a fun ride.***The Black CauldronBetter than the first book in ever...
A few pages into the first book of the three, I thought I wasn't going to like it, as it introduced all the chief actors in the story very quickly. But once past that, the story moved at a good pace, and the style of the writing was very engaging and enjoyable. I quickly came to appreciate the main characters, and identify with the flawed would-be-hero of the tales. The stories are a reminder of more innocent times, and all the nicer for it.
Tra le molte e molte storie e i troppi autori dimenticati o lasciati naufragare nell’oblio dall’editoria italiana, una continua a tenere, nel mio cuore e nel mio immaginario personale, un posto d’onore. Si tratta della pentalogia scritta da Lloyd Alexander tra gli anni Sessanta e Settanta, La saga di Prydain. L’autore, Lloyd Alexander, ha saputo in essa sfruttare la doppia lezione de Il Signore degli Anelli di J.R.R. Tolkien e dell’altrettando monumentale Once and Future King di T.H. Whyte. Pryd...
Read these several times in grade school, and when I ran across the collection of all 5, thought that I should re-read and see if they stood up to my memories. Overall, they did. I hadn't realized how much they owed to Lord of the Rings - as a child I hadn't made it there yet. I hadn't noticed the repetition so much as a child either, for instance the phrase "assistant pig keeper" is used in reference to the main character way, way, too many times (though reading them all at once certainly didn'...
The audio book was good and acted well. The story was good, but predictable. Some of the characters needed to use their powers more. For instance it was built up that Eilonwy was an enchantresses and princes, however she never used her powers, or if she did it was very minor. Over all this book was relaxing and what I was hoping for during the time I needed something soothing. I gave it 3 stars because it was average, but I recommend for something light or for children.
Re-read knihy kterou jsem četl když mi bylo asi 13-14 let. Přesto velice příjemná kniha se skvělým humorem. Je pravda že většina děje je snadno předvídatelná, přesto velioce příjemné čtení. Srovnal bych to asi s Hraničářovým učněm :-)
Ah, i bei fantasy di una volta... tutto va come ci si aspetta, i personaggi sono azzeccati e, perdonando qualche ingenuità, ci si diverte dall'inizio alla fine. Le avventure del giovane Taran non saranno certo sorprendenti, ma racconti di questa qualità narrativa ormai latitano sulla scena.
After seeing The Black Cauldron I became totally obsessed with this series of books. This collects the first three.
The chronicles do illuminate good traits to have but I'm still not sold.
These are very good books!
Read this in Junior High. Pretty good. So was the cartoon.
i think it's more interesting that Lord of the RIngs. Check out the entire series.
This fantasy series is heavily induced by the Celtic / Irish folklore and myths.Also his other ooks are great to read
I love this series. It's based on Welsh folklore. I love the characters, and the world. This set includes the first three books. Looking forward to reading the last.
