.This is definitely a worthwhile, fantasy, adventure that I enjoyed very much. Would considering rereading the entire series because it was that great! Sure wish I could afford to buy them on the Kindle.Would recommend 8)
Un bel libro, la cui collocazione è di molto antecedente alla guerra delle lance. Nonostante questo, tutte le quattro (5) storie che costituiscono questa raccolta sono legate alla guerra delle lance, per via di numerosi riferimenti o personaggi noti che compaiono sullo sfondo. Quattro tasselli indispensabili nella lettura delle storie ambientate su Krynn... (anche se l'ultima, il Migliore, mi ha lasciato l'amaro in bocca...)
Some good stories. Some boring stories. An excellent finishing story by Weis and Hickman that reminded me what sets the Dragonlance books apart from most other fantasy books: a sense of humor.
Per chi non lo sapesse (sei appena arrivato da Marte, amico?) "Dragonlance" è un'ampia raccolta di romanzi fantasy, i principali dei quali scritti da Margaret Weis e Tracy Hickman ed editi dalla TSR, a cui è affiancata l'omonima ambientazione del gioco di ruolo Dungeons & Dragons.L'immaginario mondo di Dragonlance ha nome di Krynn e contiene una variegata serie di razze tipicamente ispirata al modello fantastico di molte altre ambientazioni fantasy, tra le quali prima fra tutte quella del Signor...
There are a handful of talented authors contributing to this collection of short stories but, sadly, none of them are at their finest here. The ten tales presented in this volume (the 11th is a poem and I am neither qualified nor interested enough to comment on that) are your standard fantasy fare and stereotypical of the genre. I am not going to review this story by story; while there were some that I enjoyed more than others, and a handful that were rather cute, there were none that really sto...
And the final Tales novel is finished. Finally. Reading all the Tales novels (6) in a row feels like I've read several novels. As a result, I need some time off regarding Dragonlance. :PIn any case, The War Of The Lance seems to be, in my opinion, the best of the pack. It's got the most stories that appealed to me. An overview:Good:2) Raistlin And The Knight Of Solamnia3) Dead On Target5) The Promised Place6) Clockwork Hero9) The Hand That Feeds10) The Vingaard CampaignNot so good:1) Lorac4) War...
This is actually a collection of ten short stories and one poem written by different contributing authors, but Weis gets the main credit as author.That being said, this collection is, for the most part, completely forgettable. I finished re-reading this book night before last, and I already cannot point out anything specific about the book that comes to mind without having to open the book and refresh my memory. A book should not be that way.The collection cannot stand on its own, and if you cho...
Una piccola antologia di racconti brevi e avvincenti che hanno per protagonisti il mago Raistlin e il fratello gemello di quest’ultimo, Caramon. Determinato, sotto l’aspetto gracile e malaticcio, il primo, forte e pragmatico, il secondo. I due, apparentemente così diversi, uniscono le loro forze, le tenebrose arti magiche di Raistlin e il valore guerriero di Caramon per combattere i loro nemici.
Wow. I have even less memories of these stories than I do for "The Cataclysm". Interestingly enough, both of the ones I remember in detail, and liked, were gnome stories, another race that doesn't seem to bother me nearly as much as it does everyone else: "War Machines" is one of those stories that I kept thinking would work really well as a comic book, or at least an illustrated story. And "Clockwork Hero" had a happily-ever-after ending that I wasn't expecting, which is always nice.The rest? H...
I loved reading once again about the heroes of the war of the lance, they seem like old friends by now and the beautiful golden, silver and bronze dragons for good are so awesome!! and the story that was never to be told by tas my very favourite character was of course told and had me in stitches at times, such a lovable character, miss him when he is not figuring in the later books!!
I was not impressed by this series of short stories from the world of Dragonlance, although their might be one redeeming tale the rest make it not worth the value to buy. If you want to read them try your local library.
There's a single short story in this collection that was so good I read the ending out loud to my parents when I went through it (umpteen years ago). Like all anthologies, some hit and miss, but if I can take away one gem then it's a successful anthology in my opinion.
One of those books that it completly slip my mind. I can't remember the stories but I remember adding nothing to my knowledge of the world.
Very good; great stories.

Some good tie in short stories of the Dragonlance world. Not a must read, but a decent read.
This book has been great fun exactly what I had hoped for. Entertaining stories some heroic and some hilarious. It kept my mind off the exercise on many a morning run
