    1 thought on “The Wizard Knight

    1. Starting a reread. Some thoughts before I go back: I remember loving this the first time through--Wolfe mentioned somewhere that he wanted to write a book for younger readers, though I'm not sure he succeeded because this one felt as rich as anything else he'd done to me, and it actually starts out like a much more difficult text. What he did do, though, was turn all the conventions of YA novels on their head (it begins after most of those novels would have ended; and, from what I can tell, some [...]

    2. This was my first Gene Wolfe book. Before Wolfe I hadn't the slightest experience with unreliable narrators and let me tell you that this was my first window into an entirely new world of literary experiences.Perhaps its due to nostalgia more than anything else that I'm giving this book a five-star review. Last year I had the honor of meeting the man himself and he autographed this edition for me, bringing this tome yet closer to my heart.And so I jump to the text itself, perhaps a little biased [...]

    3. It's a largish book but I finished it in a day. The narrative style grated in the beginning but it either smoothes out or I got used to it about 15% of the way through. Wizard Knight has an old-school sword and sorcery feel to it. The protagonist is not a warrior that casts spells, but rather one who seems to have attracted the attention of spirits and elementals from the levels of existence that surround his own. It's a good story with a lot of character growth.I actually read it as two separat [...]

    4. I would have loved to give this book an additional star, Wolfe's writing is so much better than the average fantasy book. The problem is that his vision is so sweeping that I never felt like the action was real or that the characters were developed - there were so many of them! It felt as if I was expected to already be familiar with the mythos of this fantasy world(s) and then enjoy the ride. Instead I felt myself wanting a little more. Still, good writing in a fantasy novel is something and I [...]

    5. nwhytevejournal/1503671Compilation of two books originally published separately. The Knight and The Wizard, which rather seem to have sunk without trace since publication. I'm not wild about sword & sorcery as a sub-genre anyway, so couldn't get vastly interested in whatever it was Wolfe was trying to do to it. Then I put the book aside for a few days, and coming back to it realised that I really didn't care what happened after page 380. If I have missed something really special in the remai [...]

    6. Gene Wolfe is compelling author, who writes his characters as they might write themselves. Descriptions are not flowery or prolonged. Omissions are sometimes deliberate, and can be mysterious. The action jumps from scene to scene, without irrelevant explanations. This book will appeal to anyone interested in the fantasy genre. Its action will not disappoint. Its anachronisms need not distract. This is a good book to take on holiday. The difficulty will be in putting it down.

    7. This book is exceedingly strange, there's no real central plot, the main character stumbles from one quest to the next and infuriatingly perfect. This can make the book difficult to follow and frustratingly long winded. I came close to giving up on a number of occasions.

    8. Great book. I love the character development and multiple world depiction. Beautiful writing doesn't hurt.

    9. While still good, I didn't like this quite as much as other Gene Wolfe. I think I might have enjoyed it more if I was more familiar with British stories/legends/myths.

    10. Pretty good, but Wolfe has done amazing (and amazingly modest) heroes before, and better. I liked the mythology. Felt that some things, like Able's dealings with Baki, happened a few times too often.

    11. Proof that a master can create a work of genius even with the most boring and tired cast of plot elements, characters and tropes.
