Stephen Donaldson is very good at telling a story about a truly wretched man, a half-crazed female captive and a would-be hero and Scott Brick's narration provides an excellent voice in which to explore the demons and passions that each character are both tortured by and benefited from.
Regrettably, the cruelty and perversity explored in the novel was not something I found any inspiration in.
Note: I did find the author's honest discussion on the haphazardness of tuning in his muse. In addition, his telling of Richard Wagner's music dramas was likably appealing.
I'll not continue on with the series,

I couldn't finish this. I enjoy a lot of sci fi and loved his series that started withLord Fouls Bane when I read it in college but I have no time for this kind of extreme violence against women which was all the first few chapters were about. I guess I should have found out more about the story.
