Paks Vs. Dragonlance

Wow, this was close! I counted 5 Dragonlance votes and 6 for Paks (including one person who voted for both). I was leaning toward Dragonlance, so now we have a tie. And looky here:

That’s right, pristine and unread omnibus copies of both novels. How the heck did that happen? Well, I wore out my original Dragonlance omnibus, plus a set secondhand individual paperbacks, which I replaced with this omnibus, and which I have yet to read.  As for Paks, I originally had another copy of this omnibus, but the plastic started peeling off the paper almost since day 1. After a whole bunch of readings, the curl of plastic started driving me to distraction. When I saw this omnibus reappear in the bookstore, I grabbed a copy.

So what am I going to read? I’m going to read the first chapter of both and see which one I’m most in the mood for. Dragonlance is more fun, but I’ve always wanted to review Paks. So we’ll see!

6 Thoughts to “Paks Vs. Dragonlance”

    I love Paks. I just reread that omnibus again, for the umpteenth time last month.

  3. That’s one way to choose. I hope one of them helps you get back into the mood for more fantasy. {Smile}

  4. Paks wins hands down,lol. Did you know a 4th book in the Deed of Paksinarrion is out in hb now: Oath of Fealty?

    I still have my original paperbacks from the first issue of that series. Don’t know how they’ve held up, given that I’ve read them all at least dozen times.

    Now that everyone’s wanting Paks, I’m leaning toward Dragonlance. Why? Because it makes me laugh and is packed with wonder. Although I love Paks, it doesn’t do much of either and in fact, it always makes me cry.

    1. Choose what you want. You’re the one who will be reading, after all. {Smile}

      My “vote” just mentioned which review I’d find more useful, not which book would be more likely to get you into the mood for more fantasy. That’s really what you’re looking for. {Smile}
