This book is one of my favorites from Roger Zelazny. The 2 Amber Chronicles are my all time favorite from him though, but this book Isle of the Dead I have read almost as many times as the Chronicles.

Then again how many fantasy or sci-fi pieces truly get reviewed for what they are. People see them as worthless wastes of time.
