    One thought on “Roger Zelazny's Chaos and Amber

    1. Thomas on said:

      I discovered Zelazny's Amber series in my teens and devoured it. The cosmology was interesting, the characters were well-drawn (although sometimes a little lacking in depth), and the plot was engaging. I enjoyed the later Merlin novels, although perhaps not quite as much as the original Corwin series.I was interested in seeing what Betancourt had done with the franchise after Zelazny's death. Overall, I'm pretty disappointed. The characters don't have much depth; where Zelazny may have done that [...]

      Доста по-добра е от предишната, но пак страда от липсата на достатъчно талант в Бетънкорт. Героите претърпяват нулево развитие и сюжетът е брутално еднопластов.Действието се развива основно в Хаос, където нашите принцове ги заместват в дворни интриги, докато нещо продължа [...]

    3. Terelyn Marks on said:

      Must find the third book! This trilogy is the prelude to The Great Book of Amber and details how Amber began and how it is both separate from and a part of The Courts of Chaos. Betancourt did an excellent job of writing in Zelazny's style. If I didn't know that he died in 1995 :( I'd think he'd written these books too.

    4. Tim Hicks on said:

      Adequate. I'm prepared to make allowances for an author writing in another author's world. You have to have faith with this one, because it starts slowly and gets slower, before finally picking up some momentum and becoming worthwhile. They do eventually stop telling Horace to be sure to stay awake all night, even though for a while it seemed to come up about every third page. In this volume Oberon moves from weak and reactive to proactive and coming-into-strength. That's what Betancourt had to [...]

      Mundane. The obvious villain continues to be the obvious villain but his machinations are somehow never noticed by the protagonist. Dworkin's constant disappearances and refusal to deal with what would appear to be pressing matters are never explained and if this was because he was attending to far more important issues, those never seem to impinge upon the characters.Freda, as a sister talented in the arcane is clearly a copy of Fiona from the original series. The motives of the characters make [...]

    6. Daniel on said:

      As I wrote regarding the previous Betancourt foray into the Zelazny Amber world this isn't Zelazny.Of course it isn't Zelazny, it's Betancourt, but what's the point of having such a fantastic, well-developed series mauled by another writer?The book is a quick read. Too quick. And while it's seems that there's lots of action, in fact, very little gets done. I'm fairly certain that the characters are no better off or even knowledgeable at the end of the book than they are at the beginning. (Okaya [...]

      Betancourt did a fair job of staying true to Zelazny's original version. I understand they worked together briefly before Roger Zelazny died, and Betancourt incorporated a lot of Zelazny's notes in crafting the prequels. The writing style is of course slightly different, but the overall feel of the books remains the same.

    8. Dave on said:

      MUCH better than the first. This one reminded me more of the originals. It's still somewhat simplistic and his priorities seem a bit off (spending more pages on less consequential things and fewer on more pivotal moments, etc.). Oberon also finally starts coming into his own in this book as well, which helps make it much more interesting than the first.

    9. Rebecca on said:

      With this volume, I can see where Betancourt was trying to keep within Zelazny's world, but I can also see how this series drove Amber fans up the wall. It's kind of like reading Donnerjack, really. You can see the potential of the ideas, but they just don't make it.

    10. Oliver on said:

      The middle part is very tedious. Picks up considerably at the end though. Have hopes for the third part.
