The many different supporting characters all add to the quality of the story in their way, and Croaker's descriptions of them are usually both fascinating and beautiful. Among the soldiers of the company there is the Captain, calm and experienced; Goblin and One-Eye, the constantly quarreling wizards; the loyal and honourable Elmo and the Lieutenant; and the enigmatic Raven, who is a mystery to his fellow mercenaries.
That is what I am.
Chronicles of The Black Company
What became of the old fire, drive, ambition? There were dreams once upon a time, dreams now all but forgotten.
On sad days I dust them off and fondle them nostalgically, with a patronizing wonder at the naivete of the youth who dreamed them. The Chronicles of the Black Company, the tale of their many years of wars and struggles, of victories and defeats, is an amazingly beautiful one.
It's filled with amazing descriptions of places and people, of journeys to the end of the world and of battles against the darkness. Glen Cook really manages to shape the legend of the Black Company into a great work that any fantasy fan should find the time to read.
Through the experiences and musings of Croaker, the reader experiences a haunting story of war and death, love and loss, and even regrets and nostalgia, as the annalist recounts memories from earlier, happier days. Reading his stuff was like reading Vietnam War fiction on peyote.
But mostly it's a collection of war stories.
Of completely normal men fighting a war to earn their pay. This was unlike any other work of fantasy I've ever read, not in a positive or negative way; just different. In the end though, this was in my eyes a great trilogy and a wonderful reading experience. Both the writing and the story especially the story had their faults from time to time. But while this is not normally the kind of fantasy I normally read, I thoroughly enjoyed the time spent reading it and I would not hesitate to recommend it to everyone.
And not only fantasy fans, but everyone who loves fiction in general.
