    Can't believe this one comes under Never Read - there are plenty of copies in the bookstores and it is obvious every modern fantasy writer knows the stories off by heart - and the good ones put in neat tributes easily spotted by those who are reasonably well read. Though come to think of it I haven't seen a tribute yet in Jim Butcher. Loved his Tao of Pratchett aside in the latest. Not great books but inventive, very funny, and the fastest pace of any sword and sorcery

    i don't understand why you speak so well of this saga.
    the narrator was a turn down from the beginning but at least the first book was somewhat decent.
    at the moment i'm stuck halfway with the second book.
    two insipid characters going around doing random stuff without a plot gets boring really fast in my opinion.
    the author even had to kill fafhrd backstory at the beginning of the second book (gnomes, really?) because what character is better than a clean slate?

    going to drop this saga.

    Fafhrd reminds me a lot of "The Witcher" (the books, not the role playing game based on the books). These books have a large fan base but I did not like them, too much random stuff stringed together.There are some good bits in between. I liked the golden jug. But I gave up when it turned all greek.Some people may like this series. If you liked The Witcher - well, there you are.

    Howard Chaykin? Why are you crediting a comic book writer who adapted the stories for the work of one of the finest writers of all time? Fritz Leiber is the author of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser. Can you correct this error?

    Dunno if I'd put this on a "25 best" list. I read this a long, long time ago, when it was pretty much new, and found it very slow. My advice to anyone reading it fresh is to skip a few paragraphs when the narration disappears into vaguely philosophical but irrelevant reflections on life, the universe, and everything. You won't miss anything important and it makes the text a lot more tolerable. (Actually that may apply to Leiber's other works as well.) And NB ... the gray mouser is a (metaphorical) cat. (Obviously.)
