characters Nine Princes in Amber ë PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Read Nine Princes in Amber 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 Yet his savage path is blocked and guarded by eerie structures beyond imagining; impossible realities forged by demonic assassins and staggering ho. All roads lead to AmberNine brothers fight for the inheritance left behind by the disappearance of their father The ultimate prize is the throne of Amber the one real world of which all other worlds are mere shadows and reflections Nine Princes of the Amber is an interesting fantasy introduction with an intriguing concept I really enjoyed reading the early parts where the prince Corwin wakes up in a hospital on Earth with no memory of his past I expected a traditional fantasy when picking up this book but instead got a story of Corwin and his companions travelling between worlds and attempting to reach Amber while also struggling to regain his memory and understanding of what s going onThis combination of science fiction and fantasy was pretty interesting and made even so by the fact that the protagonist himself as a result of his amnesia holds as little information as the reader to begin with about the world of Amber and how it works Thus the reader is able to follow Corwin s journey and learn with himUnfortunately Zelazny s writing is not very good at least not at this early stage It seems to blend many different styles of writing which often ruins the atmosphere of the story and the setting and also contains a number of mistakes throughout the book Additionally the simplicity of the plot and the shallowness of characterisation made the uality suffer slightly However these are all negatives that can be easily corrected in seuels and I m ready to give dear Roger the benefit of doubt because of how intriguing the concept isOverall this is a very short and enjoyable introduction to one of the great fantasy series of the previous century

What a weird weird bookNine princes in Amber begins with the protagonist Corwin waking up in an hospital room with no memories of himself or his past Soon after that he realizes he s been drugged for days and flees the building meanwhile collecting bits of informations about his former lifeWithin a few chapters he learns he s one of the nine living princes of Amber the only true world of which every other world is but a Shadow Literally and that this makes him basically a godThese princes can in fact modify Shadow worlds with just a minor effort of willbut not Amber itself travel freely between universes and do a number of other nifty thingsThe rest of the book covers or less his struggles to regain his memories and win the throne of Amber itself now held by Eric one of his brothersToo bad that while having a great premise and being full of good ideas the book fails uite badly to deliverIts first and most obvious fault is that it s so very hasty Corwin goes from I wake up without knowing who I am to I single handedly wage war to decide the fate of all the universes in about 30 pages It never takes time to build pathos or put some meat on the characters and the result is that after a flying start the narration falls flatThe whole second half of the book is made almost entirely of battles resolved in one line sentencesJust imagine a few dozen pages full of something like We went there to fight A Three hundred died Then we fought B Then C came and we fled Then we fought C and a two thousand diedAnother big point is that this book does a lousy job of explaining things Don t get me wrong I love books where you have to figure out things yourself but here there s just a lot of random stuff thrown at you that you re supposed to take as a givenWhy are the princes so powerful What allows them to change reality Why can they change some things and not others Why on Earth do they all want Amber s throne since they could create an infinite number of worlds perfectly identical to it by simply wishing it Why doesn t gunpowder burn in Amber while matches work perfectly instead The list could go on and on and on At times you are given pathetic explanations on the lines of Princes of Amber can change reality because they can Why thank you very much Mr ZelaznyPlot resolutions are often plain ridiculous and lack any logic At some point in the book there s a battle on this loooong and narrow staircase climbing a mountain These stairs are so narrow that only the two soldiers on the front can fight and everyone else we re talking a few thousands on each side just stands there watchingNo one takes a bow nor throws a fucking rock for that matterI d write about such plot holes but I don t want to make spoilers and I think I made my point already anyway Last but not least the language is a mix of archaic English and 70s slang If ever there were any doubts that the two are not meant to go together Nine princes in Amber wiped them awayApart from being very VERY annoying this uaint for want of a better and non offensive word linguistc mix makes absolutely no senseJust think about it our Earth is but one of an infinite number of Shadow world of which most characters which remember are immortal gods barely suspect the existence why the hell would they use American Idioms A couple times is mentioned how they are actually speaking Amber s language and I must say I m really really curious as to how does I dig thy stuff brother translate in Amberiancan t remeber the actual nameThe language is not the only part pervaded with random elements of American culture the princes for examplejust can t help smoking about 20 packs of branded cigarettes per page Where do they get them No ideaI was constantly reminded of an uber cheesy sci fi movie from the 70sIt s not an entirely terrible book and it holds some very cool concepts but I hardly find it deserving all the praise it gets Grumpy Old Women you have to figure out things Trap Origin #5 yourself but here there s just a lot of random stuff thrown at The Angel and the Prince you re supposed to take as a givenWhy are the princes so powerful What allows them to change reality Why can they change some things and not others Why on Earth do they all want Amber s throne since they could create an infinite number of worlds perfectly identical to it by simply wishing it Why doesn t gunpowder burn in Amber while matches work perfectly instead The list could go on and on and on At times Cuckolded by the Futa Motorcycle Club you are given pathetic explanations on the lines of Princes of Amber can change reality because they can Why thank

RogerNo it would be no problem at all I d be happy to respond to the first draft of your new fantasy novel Lets start with the good I enjoyed your method of immersing the reader in your fantasy world The protagonist s case of amnesia makes it so he must learn all the same things the reader needs to know Protagonist Corwin regains his memory gradually creating a sense of mystery throughout the first hundred pages that is uite entertaining Then well you lost me I mean it s so esoteric SHADOW REALMS one for every combination of things that could be Nine princes who can travel at will between these Shadow Realms But there s really only ONE REAL WORLD the world of Amber of which all the other worlds are shadows All of these princes want to be the king of Amber and they struggle against each other for the throne Well one issue I have is that I m not sure why I should side with Corwin I m not entirely convinced he s the good guy It s sort of like voting for Zeus instead of Hera They re all egomaniacal wackjobs And then you tell us most of the way through the novel each one of these brothers could technically make their own perfect reproduction of the original world of Amber and ALL be kings of identical territories AND COMPLETELY BYPASS ALL OF THIS FIGHTING TO THE DEATH So WHY The FUCK Should your reader care As Tim Gunn would say This part has me worried Before attempting to get this published I HIGHLY recommend reconsidering how omnipotent this set up will make your protagonist At the very least don t point out to your reader how ludicrous this whole war is Another big issue I had was with your voice in this novel I mean sometimes you re all If thou will help me to smote down ye evyl brother Eric your noble brother Corwin shall be beholden to you Then a scene later you re all I snuck out of the prison because I m just that good Dig Solid Are we casual Are we not casual Let s just decide Either could work but both don t Also you should know my interest tapered off drastically at the exact moment when things should ve started getting exciting The actual battle over Amber seemed well dull First off it s narrated kind of like an eight year old would narrate an action figure battle seven of the big furry red guys were killed Three of their soldiers died Seventy of the goodguys got blown off the snowy mountain I stabbed some guy in the neck You start a hell of a lot of sentences with I did this I was distracted by this I could not visualize much of anything I was tempted to skimI m sure this is your rough draft despite the artificially yellowed pages and cool imitation 70 s cover mostly because of the excessive typos My personal favorite the doors of good food Did you mean Odors I think so I would fix that and also doublecheck your punctuation Commas seem like an unpredictable force in this book happening sporadically and without logic So as I tell all my writing students allways proofread By the way I loved the ironic uip on the front about Hugo and Nebula Winning After a few drafts that may become a reality but remember my mantra revise revise revise
