Elric of Melniboné

Eternal Champion: Elric #1

Michael Moorcock

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

Dark, melancholic, but just enough hope to keep things from spiraling into hopeless horror.

Man, I ate this stuff up when I was a teen and young 20 something, reveling in hopeless despair.

Reading it now, it is just good writing. Very lyrical, sparse yet telling a wonderfully tragic tale. Sometimes sad can be ok.
