      Book 1 Review 2starsIt just hit me that i should have picked the single edition and not omnibus one, now i m reading three books for one ugh pot of beans life That aside, I DID NOT ENJOY THIS BOOK yeah there were some parts which were sort of enjoyable, where i had a glimmer of what was going on but for the most part you re just going in blind Imagine someone opens up a door and slams it shut before you get your bearings, that s how you get to view this book You get a rough understanding of what [...]

      This is a copy paste of my BookLikes review geneoklikes post 734878There are no good guys, just a band of mercenaries always trying to make a choice between a bad side and a very bad side they work with a lesser evil to prevent the comeback of a greater one The people they work with only consider them a useful tool to be discarded when they outlive their usefulness, so expect a lot of backstabbing and double crossings always present in Glen Cook s writings The mercenaries are definitely not nice [...]

    6. Adrienne on said:

      Any book that makes me want to drop my relatively comfortable life to join a mercenary company with at best a fluid sense of morality is doing something right I d be signing up for long marches through snow and mud, for following orders no questions asked , and for the occasional massacre, and frankly, that s not normally me Huh.I did not expect to like this book as much as I did I was pleasantly surprised I accidentally began reading the second compilation of books in this series The Books of t [...]

      I read about the first 75 pages of the first book, The Black Company, and I just can t get over the feeling that something is fundamentally missing from the story I can t get a handle on who exactly the Black Company is, how many of them their are, their history, or any specifics on the individuals who make it up, past vague generalizations More time is spent detailing the one new addition to the group, Raven, than on the narrator, Croaker, the few important magicians, or the seldom mentioned ch [...]

    8. Zachary on said:

      I love and hate this trilogy Glen Cook drew me in, led me to fall in love with characters, and then let me down This was a common theme as I read The story would hook and reel me in, then suddenly I would lose interest or feel like the story was incomplete at parts and stop reading for a week or two I had to push myself to get through this book.I love the characters Croaker, One Eye, Goblin, Raven, The Lady, Darling, Silent, and Tracker They are all unforgettable Very complex, very detailed One [...]

      Ok, since I don t have Mr Greg s reviewing skills I ma keep it short and simple This is like somebody gave the guy who wrote this book a fucking Minigun and loaded with bullets of awesomeness and told him to aim directly in to my brainand then the mother fucker went trigger happy This is good shit I read it twice in a fucking row It got it all Awesome wizards, kick ass villains, drama, action, action and drama And the hottest villain ever EVER I have a crush with The Lady now I love this mothe [...]

      G.Cook s writing style takes some time getting used to He often drops you in a middle of things without much explanation and it feels like you ve missed something Don t worry all gets explained as you go along.But if you like grim darks, grey cynical characters, sly humour if you like your fantasy full of action and character interaction with none of the boring food, scenery and clothes descriptions it s totally worth it DThe Black Company 3.5 reviewShadows Linger 4 The White Rose 5

    11. Kevin Xu on said:

      He is one of the first if not first one to write dark fantasy and bring it on a personal level that is now all the rage like the works of the George R.R Martin, Joe Abercrombie and Steven Erikson, where fantasy during his time were still Tolkien copycats with a band of heroes going on a quest Basically he wanted to write fantasy based on his experience during the Vietnam War.

      Our orders were to report to Nightcrawler at Lords Soulcatcher thought Lords would be the target of the next Rebel thrust Tired as we were, we expected to see bitter fighting before winter slowed the war s pace Croaker Lookee here Whitey came charging toward where I sat with the Captain and Silent and one or two others He had a naked woman draped over his shoulder She might have been attractive had she not been so thoroughly abused Not bad, Whitey Not bad, I said, and went back to my journal Be [...]

      Couldn t keep readingThis book got such good reviews in the places I checked and I had had my eye on it for some time, so I was looking forward to enjoying a great fantasy story Maybe the story will get better, but it s the writing style that I can t get past It s so choppy and lacks detail or smooth transitions from scene to scene I felt like I was reading something my grade 6 s would write I could get NO feeling for any of the characters so far, not even the narrator they all felt flat and con [...]

    14. Jack on said:

      I drifted away from fantasy fiction in the 1980s when these books came out and addressed many of the misgivings I had about the state of affairs of fantasy fiction I was weary of the overly descriptive high fantasy It s a weariness that has lasted decades Fantasy books that make it so easy for the reader to identify the good and see the bad as nothing but true evil Dragons and happy wizards and charming little creatures of the forest and some low born lad or lass who has the power to save us all [...]

    15. Lightreads on said:

      Well, that was testicular Military fantasy about a company of mercenaries, with one of those completely flat, non ideological conflicts where we re told X and Y persons are evil, but we have no context for any of it So what you have left is a bunch of battle summaries boring and some local color all men, don t ask about the women Just don t.I think my real problem is that this is told by the company doctor writing the history He freely admits that he is eliding and prettying things up Fine, tha [...]

    16. Michael Everest on said:

      Full review to be submitted at a later date but it s safe to say that as a reader, and as an ex soldier, this is one of my favourites.

    17. Anson Mount on said:

      The Black Company is quite simply the best fantasy series I have ever read For too long, the genre was caught between the kind of adolescent irony propagated by authors such as Piers Anthony for whom I still carry a teenage love and the romanticized sword sorcery worlds of authors such as Robert Jordan Fortunately, Mr Cook arrived in time to provide a much needed dose of realism, internal conflict and morally questionable heroes and villains alike When asked for the elevator pitch for The Black [...]

    18. Matthew on said:

      A great read Cook is arguably the father of all the gritty fantasy that has followed Can t wait to read in the series.

    20. Heather on said:

      I really liked these books.Thinking back on it, I can t remember much of the first book but I do remember that I wasn t really that interested in the story until the Second book What really got me interested was the parts that included the Lady When reading this book I went into it thinking that it was going to be like most books I ve read Maybe one character s point of view in a sort of memoir style about what happened in their life with detailed accounts This wasn t it The books are written fr [...]

      A masterpiece my all time favorite seriesThis series is a masterpiece, perfectly written In fact, my all time very favorite series I identify so much with The Black Company characters that I actually start to miss them, and end up re reading the entire series again every few years Must be on my fourth or fifth time through now Every time, I somehow feel as though I m coming home.I absolutely love Glen Cook s writing style I see that several reviewers complain about it being overly choppy and abr [...]

    22. Melina on said:

      I really enjoyed this classic grimdark series First, I really liked the Black Company as a group of people In my opinion, some of the best moments in the books were the scenes where people were playing cards and doing nothing much It was where the relationships and bonding of the mercenaries shone through and it was some of my favorite parts And of course, the bickering of One Eye and Goblin I also liked the Croaker as a narrator He was flawed, but smart and quick on his feet, dependable, and bo [...]

    23. Shane Davenport on said:

      This was a good read I would recommend it to any Science Fiction Fantasy reader It is a bit different than other Fantasy books I have read in that it is or less in journal form as per the Croaker, the company s physician, historian, also the narrator of the novels.I really like how Glen Cook does not portray the characters as too strong or powerful and grounds the novel in a human perspective.Also, you have to really think about what you are reading as his style changes a bit as it moves along [...]

    24. Simon Raistrick on said:

      this book contains the first three volumes of an absolutely amazing fantasy series introduced to me by my friend jesse the black company books offer bloody minded and gripping military fiction, with cleverly done concepts of sorcery and its practitioners interwoven at the time I was reading this I thought, this might be the best goddamned fantasy I ve read since Tolkien rather, scratch the since Tolkien part since reading this series, I have discovered a couple of other ones in the same league, [...]

      Wow Flabbergasted and awe struck This book, to be blunt, is f king incredible What a ride I know many of you have already read it, but I wanted to share my review to contribute, and because I cannot heap enough effusive and grandiloquent praise upon this book, and gratitude upon the Best Fantasy Books Forum Site for guiding me to it.A masterpiece of Fantasy, this collection of Glen Cook s first three Black Company novels has swiftly become one of my favourites, to the extent I ll be buying liter [...]

    26. Jason on said:

      This book was just absolutely phenomenal The thing that was craziest about it was when I was about a quarter into the first book of this three book collection, I was ready to put it down It read like a war story set in a fantasy world Which is apt because that s exactly what it is However, I wasn t interested in a war story I like to read about characters and their development and interactions with other characters However this was a gift from a friend who gave it with high praise and we normall [...]

    27. Michelle McGuinness on said:

      I gave this book a five because it does exactly what it sets out to do It is gritty, dark and fantastic from start to finish Nothing is sugar coated You follow the lives and adventures of a band of mercenaries Their work is not pretty, and they re not always fighting for that good guys This limbo Cook places his characters and readers in a limbo in which there is no clear good and evil works really well throughout all three books It is unsettling and challenging, which is rare for fantasy There [...]

    28. Gary on said:

      I ploughed through all 3 books one after the other and did not get tired of the characters or the story line world Mr Cook writes well He has style and a good eye for dialogue We are not talking Joe Abercrombie but not far off Highly recommended.

    29. Glen on said:

      A fairly good collection fantasy novel trilogy about a company of soldiers that fight for, then against a tyrannical magic user Not a bad example of the genre, but to be honest, it got a little tiresome at the end Maybe read a different book between each novel.
