Re: The Best and Worst Gemmell Character

I really liked Druss the Legend, but that's really an obvious choice.

I read the sword in the storm after midnight falcon and, surprisingly, I liked Connavar more than Bane. I thought he was kickass.

My least favourite is definitely Asta Kahn. He's a cowardly arse.

Re: The Best and Worst Gemmell Character

I liked best Jon Shannow, Tenaka Khan and the Waylander, I guess I'm not being original here Also, I think that the Legend was Gemmel's best novel, although as characters go I preferred Regnak and Virae to Druss about whom I didn't greatly care. As for his worst characters, I don't remember the names, but I didn't finish reading The Winter Warriors. It's a pretty average Drenai novel, with pretty much the same set of characters as always, but I tried to read it twice and I couldn't, the second time with only about a hundred pages remaining. Guess that was one Nadir/Drenai book too much, although maybe I'll give it another try...in time

Re: The Best and Worst Gemmell Character

As a few people have said I have to say my favorite was Druss, I mean he is like 65 and still Badass. He never gives up it is the classic indominable human spirit. But at a very close second. I would say Serbitar. Rek was quite amusing as well.
As for worst hummm. Id say...well actually I think I couldnt say worst but my least favorite would have to be the crazy woman who died with Druss and masaged him or whatever forgot her name.

Cool Re: The Best and Worst Gemmell Character

The best has got to be Connavar. He is just the greatest warrior who ever lived. End of discussion

The worst is the witch who created the swords in White wolf, cant remember he name, but she irratates me so bad!

Tenaka Khan. Purple-eyed geezer who was Ulric's decendant. He was pretty cool with the whole dual swords business.
I've mentioned it before, but my favourite character is Jon Shannow. Merciless killer with a heart o' gold.

Re: The Best and Worst Gemmell Character

yep. that's the guy! i hate not remembering details!
i never read the jon shannow stuff. i am a picky picky reader, and fantasy with guns in tends to put me off a bit *shrug*

Re: The Best and Worst Gemmell Character

Howdy folks. Everyone here makes good shouts (that was a funny debate over the Tenaka Khan issue...). I'm gonna throw a new name into the ring: Helikaon!

Re: The Best and Worst Gemmell Character

Howdy. You all make good points,(that was a good argument about the Tenaka Khan issue) and the answer is probably too individual to each person for us to agree. I'm going to throw a new name into the ring, Helikaon. Overcame all his fears but not his demons...
