The disaster prone duo

Lieber is among the god fathers of modern sword and sorcery right up there with Howard. Both where indirectly connected through
Being part of the Lovecraft circle. This is the story of how mouser a swashbuckling fencer and thief meets the bardic barbarian fafhrd who forges lifelong bond in a night of revelry that soon turns to raging revenge.

Good classic fantasy

Is there anything you would change about this book?

No.

What did you like best about this story?

Classic fantasy story, but not your typical heroes.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator could have done a better job of making each character distinctive.

Could you see Ill Met in Lankhmar being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Jerome Flynn (Bronn from GoT) as the Gray Mouser and Liam Neeson as Fafhrd because he's tall?

Any additional comments?

Interesing, may read/listen to more.

Missed a thrill

I remembered the Fafhrd & Gray Mouser stories from my teenage years and I loved them then, so I thought I'd try it as an audiobook now. But I guess the 35 years in between have changed a lot: not only have I changed, but also the way in which action and fantasy stories are built up nowadays. So with this story I didn't find a hoped-for fun and thrilling adventure, but a rather dull story, with two-dimensional characters having stilted conversations interspersed by Errol Flynn-like action scenes.

Oh well, I'm glad I tried it anyway. But I won't be back for any sequel parts.
