Dec 01, Jim rated it did not like it Shelves: So really, I should love this book In response to a comment my friend left when I rated that book, this is how I replied, summarizing the problems I had with that book: The main characters are included less than the supporting characters, pretty much all of who are remarkably unlikeable, while the main characters If I wasn’t so invested in the characters and the Forgotten Realms setting after twenty years of reading, this book might have been my dropping-off point, but elminser I am, well, I’ll have to read the next one and just hope it improves.
Dec 20, Jeremy rated it did not like it Shelves: Very thin plot, too many made-up words, too many ancillary characters, too many smash-a-keyboard-to-make-up-a-name names, lackluster ending, very little character development, no surprises, so on and so on. Why does Ed Greenwood insist on using medieval language when no other author writing for the Forgotten Elminstwr world will? I don’t care if FR is his baby, when you have thirty or more other authors working in your world, consistency is a nice thing to have.
This was monumentally disappointing compared to Ed’s earlier work, he really phoned this one in.

Elminster Enraged is due out in August The main plot of this book follows those who want to take control of Cormyr and unseat the king.
There are numerous subplots dealing with all the intrigues of the nobles and the disorganization of the war wizards and just about everyone else in the castle. There are also the love interest subplots and the ambitions of the one who strives to be the king of Cormyr and beyond.
At first the novel begins with a very linear storyline and once the focus shifts to the city of Suzail pretty much all hell breaks loose, which is a very accurate way to describe the writing. There are so many shifts in the settings is was very difficult to keep up with what was going on and became confusing to the point I was thinking this was not going to be that good of a novel.
After about two-thirds of the way through the book, the plotline becomes more focused and was easier to follow along and was a definite improvement.
Bury Elminster Deep (Sage of Shadowdale, #2) by Ed Greenwood
The ending was a bit surprising and yet not all at the same time, but was a good place to stop to for the next novel to begin. Lack of direction in the beginning. There was so much going on it was really hard to follow the story as I said previously.
Eventually, however, it does get back and track and makes up for all the confusing moments.
[BOOK REVIEW] Bury Elminster Deep by Ed Greenwood
Along with all the things dep on, the focus of the book shifts constantly and the reader is forced to change perspectives about every other page adding to the confusion of trying to keep up with all the plotlines. Way too many side characters. There are so many names thrown at the reader it leminster hard to keep up with who is who. Not only the characters that play a part in the story, but also those that are just mentioned to serve either as a lineage or who is supposed to be in league with who.
To add on to that, the ending of this book expands on the FR world and explains nicely what was foreseen by the Gods and why the spellplague had to happen. The main characters really shine for me, especially Amarune and Feep Arclath. They develop nicely and I found myself really caring for them and how wlminster played out and kept rooting for them. Also I really enjoyed Mirt.
I have always had an affinity for his character and enjoyed every novel he has been in.
He adds some nice comedic scenes and keep things interesting and entertaining. For me this was just another average book by Mr. This one could have been so much better without all the jumping around and the multiple subplots deeep I feel were supposed to keep the book exciting, but tuned out to just make it more confusing. For fans of Mr. Greenwood, you will definitely want to get this one to see how things progress. For fans of the FR and hardcore fans, you may want to pick this one up if elminter just for the beginning and the ending.
For people new to the realms, start at the beginning of the series elminsetr judge for bbury, but know there are better out there. Aug 09, Brenda Cothern rated it really liked it Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here.
Ed Greenwood has dwep himself with Bury Elminster Hury The Sage of Shadowdale. After reading Elminster Must DieI had lost all faith in Ed and was severely disappointed in the book and what he’d done to Elminster.
However, it seems the witty old mage that we ddeep love Elmister, not Greenwood is almost back to himself in this book. With a new quest to give him purpose and the need to save the Dragonthrone again, Elmister is back to the character we love. Your faith in the old mage Greenwood, not Elminster will be restored! I am looking forward to book three This continues right on from the previous book, only moments later.
Overall, it’s the same rollicking adventure of any Elminster book, though this one has a few more titillating scenes than previous books they wlminster always there, but there are more this seep, since Elminster is in a female body more often than not.
It also sort of became a bit impressionistic at the end, where scenes seemed to take place outside of what was written in the book, and I felt a little bit lost when scenes changed, a This continues right on from the previous book, only moments later. It also sort of became a bit impressionistic at the end, where scenes seemed to take place outside of what was written in the book, and I felt a little bit lost when scenes changed, and we were in the middle of action I don’t recall the book getting into.
It wasn’t hard to figure out what happened, but it was a bit odd. Other than that, it went more or less where I expected it to go with a few twists and turns along the wayand was a epminster adventure story.
I really wanted buey like this book. I’m a huge forgotten realms fan, and I’ve read as many books in this universe as I can.
Unfortunately this Elminster series has been very disappointing. I think it is Greenwood’s writing style. I’ve had enough of this author for a while, and I think I’ll just skip the next book.
The plot jumps all over the place. There is supposed to be humor, but it gets old quickly with the same jokes rehashed over and over again.
Finally, I’m not even sure this book is about I really wanted to like this book. Finally, I’m not even sure this book is about Elminster. Yes, he makes an appearance, but the budy is so loose that it could be about any of the main characters.
Really could use some serious editing, as I’m sure there’s a good story buried deep in here somewhere. Feb 04, Stephanie rated it it was ok Shelves: Did I mention the bad guy is supposed to be someone Elminster has thwarted many times and yet he hasn’t been elmknster the previous 5 books?
Did I mention the author loves to stress the same idea over and over and over again? What about how it drags on for now reason and rushed the end? No surprise, this book was as bad as the last. I”m soooo happy to only have one more of these to read. I pray when I get to The Sundering, it’s at leas ugh. I pray when I get to The Sundering, it’s at least decent Oct 25, 6kaden rated it it was amazing.
Elminster is the main charecter and he is a powerful wizard who has lost his powers because he has to carry the powers of a god until she needs her powers. And there is an evil force that is trying to ether steal the power that he holds or kill him.
And he whant’s to survive and there is a lady knight and two Harpers at first he does not want them but later on they become friends.
