I first read this book when I was 16 years old.  I worked at The Mall (back when it was called Canwest... if you grew up in Langford you know what I'm talking about) 
I will never refer to it as West Shore Town Center!  NEVER!

Ahem, anyway.
I worked at the Mall and there was this really cool older girl who worked at the book store and basically  shaped my taste in books by recommending practically Every Single Book I have EVER loved.  (I exaggerate, but not much)
I discovered Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Laurell K Hamilton and Guy Gavriel Kay through her suggestions.
There are more, because I was basically DEVOURING books then, easily finishing a book or two a week.

And Fionavar, oh Fionavar, How I love you!  I have passed this book on to pretty much anyone who asks me about finding a new book to read.

And I have managed a coup!  My bookclub is now reading it as our summer book!

So I just plowed through the first book (The Fionavar Tapestry is actually three books in one compendium, The Summer Tree, The Wandering Fire, and The Darkest Road) and have happily skipped into the second book, easily and (with some serious guilt) ignoring all of my extra child-ular activities, you know, anything that doesn't involve The Kid.  LIKE MY JOB. Jobs I should say.  As I have a couple.

I recognize that this is a bad idea, BUT I CAN'T STOP READING IT!

Yes I am forever pegged as a Sci-Fi/Fantasy nerd, andIdon'tcare!
I revel in it.

I would l.a.r.p.

Yeah I would.

Get a copy of this book and read it.
It's so wonderful.
