Behold The Man: Your Own Personal Jesus — 4 years ago
Michael Moorcock is one of the best-loved British fantasy writers, and I think if you like the genre you should read some of his work, but this is probably not the best place to start. Behold The Man is a re-imagining of the Christ legend involving time travel, existentialism, and sexual frustration, not exactly tried-and-true fantasy stuff. But even though I was taken aback by the book at first, I really enjoyed Moorcock’s writing style; he’s definitely a talented user of the English language. By the end of the book, I was expecting a little bit more – the book unravels with very few twists and turns – but it was still a great piece of writing, and I would like to try out another one of his books to see what he can do with a more “traditional” fantasy story.
