If you like fantasy, if you like literature, this book is for you. If you want something with a lot of characters and places, this book is for you. I highly enjoyed The Glorious Path.
Talathastro is a man that does not fit in. This sounds like a lot of other stories. Until, you learn why, and it has a lot to do with man and the gods. As a character, he really lives up to the saying "live dangerously," because, even when enemies are destroying everything he's worked for, he just laughs at how adventurous it all is.
The world of Oerstra is rich in detail, especially the landscape (I had to look up the word "tors"). The characters were unusually complex, but passionate and real.
TGP really pushed me. It made me learn new words, old words, and some from other languages. It made me learn about life, and about myself. I'm going to be thinking about it for a long time. Truly an unforgettable, moving story. It rings with all the best elements of classic fantasy and literature.
