Lord Foul’s Bane, by Stephen R. Donaldson

I had read this pair of trilogies (The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever and The Second Chronicles) a long time ago — probably when I was in middle school. In terms of themes & scope, very much like The Lord of the Rings, and focusing around a leper, Thomas Covenant, who lives in our world, but gets transported somehow into a world that’s a lot like Middle Earth. I think it’s pretty good fantasy, and worth reading if you’re looking for something that’s sort of like Tolkein. I think I’m going to read at least the first Chronicles and see how it goes. Maybe I’ll read the 2nd trilogy as well.
