I picked up Nine Princes in Amber, the first book in the 10-book Chronicles of Amber, on the advice of a Flavorwire . Over the course of the series’ first five books, Zelazny unravels each sibling’s plot to take the throne of Amber, and their varying degrees of success.

I picked up Nine Princes in Amber, the first book in the 10-book Chronicles of Amber, on the advice of a Flavorwire list of great sci-fi books. It met my strict criteria for books I will read: The library had it, and. It had a cool title. The author’s name, Zelazny, is cool in itself. Corwin’s nature, of course, leads him to want the throne even before he regains his full memories (spoiler: he does regain them), and thu. onflict.

The Chronicles of Amber is a series of fantasy novels by American writer Roger Zelazny. The main series consists of two story arcs, each five novels in length. Additionally, there are a number of Amber short stories and other works. Four additional prequel books, authorized by the Zelazny estate following his death, were authored by John Gregory Betancourt.

Danger overshadows Corwin as he engages in a desperate battle of wits to regain his sovereignty over the ethereal city of Amber. Reissue. Book available.

This is a review of the Speaking Volumes CD presentation of _Nine Princes in Amber_. There are other "audiobook" versions of this book out there, but Speaking Volumes' presentation is special: it is narrated by Roger Zelazny himself. These recordings, according to the publisher, were made shortly before Roger's death, and were initially thought to be lost. Once found, they were digitally remastered and packaged into this set of 5 CDs. The audio/production quality is quite good.

It is always interesting to hear an author read his (or her) work. You get to hear the story as the author truly meant it, at the rhythms and speed originally intended, even if the author is not a professional "narrator." Roger has a somewhat raspy voice. For me, it is worth the price just to "put a voice" to one of my favorite authors, reading one of my favorite works.

This tale is in the "fantasy" genre. If you are unfamiliar with this book, it is the start of what eventually became 10 novels and a handful of short stories. The "Amber" novels are probably Zelazny's most famous and popular works -- and that is saying something, given his productivity and penchant for garnering awards and nominations.

This book - and the next four novels - follow the adventures of a character who wakes up in a hospital bed, realizing he's been over-drugged for no good reason, and discovering he has no clear recollection of how he got there..... The hero is off on a wild adventure told in the unique Zelazny fashion: a cynical, wisecracking, and flawed hero; intrigues and plot twists; vivid imagination; and lively, engrossing tale-telling. (Note: at this writing, Amazon has an incorrect "Editorial Review" for this book - what is written in that review pertains to the seventh Amber novel, _Blood of Amber_.) I don't want to provide any more spoilers, but if you have to know more, you can do a web search for Zelazny + Amber, and you'll find plenty of fan sites.

But this production is certainly the only one I'm aware of that provides the Amber novels in Zelazny's own voice. And Speaking Volumes has produced all 10 novels in the series, read by Zelazny. For true fans of Zelazny, I think this is a "must have."

I read the Amber series by Zelazny many years ago and have been slowly buying up all of the books again to re-read. Even years later the series, and this book in particular, doesn't disappoint.
