Orchi (I guardiani dei lampi - Le legioni del tuono - I guerrieri della tempesta) un mondo primordiale e violento, popolato da creature fantastiche, razze antiche e mitologiche, esseri dai poteri magici, gnomi, elfi, e naturalmente orchi, quello creato da Stan Nicholls nella sua celebre trilogia storie di pura azione, piene di rabbia, che hanno segnato l avvento del fantasy barbarico, genere in cui il consueto cast di eleganti cavalieri vagamente disneyano e politicamente corretto non esiste pi e in cui vengono completamente ribaltati i piani del rapporto tra le creature mostruose e gli uomini questi ultimi feroci, spietati, decisi a tutto pur di annientare le altre razze Un universo dominato dalla crudele brama di potere, lontano dal nostro, eppure sorprendentemente credibile.

  1. I finally finish the daunting masochistic task of reading the 745 pages of crap that this book contains now as promised my review Look I ve read crap in my life but this was just ridiculous if you ever played one of those random RPG games for the Game Boy back in the early 90 s you know what talking about here you get your generic main character an Orc named Stryke, you also get the traditional cookie cutter motley crew of retards Haskeer who is stubborn and stupid and is supposed to be the I finally finish the daunting masochistic task of reading the 745 pages of crap that this book contains now as promised my review Look I ve read crap in my life but this was just ridiculous if you ever played one of those random RPG games for the Game Boy back in the early 90 s you know what talking about here you get your generic main character an Orc named Stryke, you also get the traditional coo...

  2. I was tricked into reading this my copy had a quote on the cover by Tad Williams I adore Tad Williams work and the premise sounded neat Orcs as you ve never seen them or something to that effect , so I bought the book.First problem The writing style drove me up the wall It felt juvenile, with lots of telling rather than showing, and generally the writing seemed clunky and lacked polish Oddly enough, the writing for the dream sequences were an exception they were well written, conveyed I was tricked into reading this my copy had a quote on the cover by Tad Williams I adore Tad Williams work and the premise sounded neat Orcs as you ve never seen them or something to that effect , so I bought the book.First problem The writing style drove me up the wall It felt juvenile, with lots of telling rather than showing, and generally the writing seemed clunky and lacked polish Oddly en...

  3. SPOILERS AND BAD LANGUAGE BELOW I picked up Orcs by Stan Nicholls again, having bought it a couple of years ago, gotten about a third of tthe way through it and then abandoned to leave it languishing on my shelves And for the life of me, I couldn t remember why.Then I started reading, and by the time I hit the third chapter, I remembered.The good guys in this book are reasonable interesting characters, for all they aren t particularly orc like even if I find the narrative a bit monotonou SPOILERS AND BAD LANGUAGE BELOW I picked up Orcs by Stan Nicholls again, having bought it a couple of years ago, gotten about a third of tthe way through it and then abandoned to leave it languishing on my s...

  4. I sure would have liked this when I was 14 I should have put it back on the shelf when I saw the lead character s name was Stryke It would have saved me the descriptions of how exotically sexy the half orc sorceress is NOTE TO AUTHORS if you are describing any of your characters pubic hair,...

  5. I am almost embarrassed to put this on my list I did start reading it I got almost halfway through by sheer perseverance Then, I found myself flipping to the end of the tedious fight scenes to see what happened next Then I realized that about every second or third page, the characters did something so profoundly and inexplicably stupid as to completely distract me from enjoying the story Finally, I threw the book against the wall and moved on to something else If I can ever remember the na I am almost embarrassed to put this on my list I did start reading it I got almost halfway through by sheer perseverance Then, I found myself flipping to the end of the tedious fight scenes to see what happened next Then I realized that about every second or third page, the characters did something so profoundly and inexplicably stupid as to completely distract me from enjoying the story Finally, I threw the book against ...

  6. I read this book for the first time many years ago, so nostalgia probably colours my review Orcs is a great book, and the first of its kind that I read that told the story from the orcs pov I loved all the relentless action and gore, as well as the dark humour laced throughout Yes, the plot isn t all too complex, but the world building was very well done and the fight scenes were the highlight The beginning and the middle of the series were definitely superior to the last third, but the endi I read this book for the first time many years ago, so nostalgia probably colours my review Orcs is a great book, and the first of its kind that I read that told the story from the orcs pov I loved all the relentless action and gore, as well as the dark humour laced throughout Yes, the plot isn t all too complex, but the world building was very well done and the fight scenes were the highlight The beginning and the middle of the series we...

  8. Just don t No matter how good the back sounds, just don t.

  9. This book has a bit of a cookie cutter story to it in terms of typical fantasy , but I like the idea of telling the story from the Orcs perspective If your into fantasy you will know that Orcs are a much maligned race and are cast as a wicked warrior race controlled by others most famously by Tolkien in the Lord of the Rings The author here goes out...

  10. I got a kick out of this novel It wasn t the best written nor was the topic all that deep, but when it came to amusing me, I enjoyed the heck out of it My biggest issue was the writing the battle scenes were repetitive lots of hacking and slashing starting from one main character and then following the circuit to show the others in their battles And he did this for every skirmish and major altercation it just grew a little dull to me I enjoyed the subject the orcs reminded me of the o I got a kick out of this novel It wasn t the best wri...
