This is not the edition I have, which is the first printing from 1984, with a photo on the cover featuring Ah-nold in his fur Fruit of the Looms from that dreadful second Conan movie of the same name. Of the same name because this is the book version of the movie, and frankly more entertaining. My edition does not seem to be listed on .I'll admit a certain weakness for trashy swords & sorcery may have biased my rating a star or so above what it really deserves. Being something of a Howard pu [...]

An average yet enjoyable Conan pastiche. Nothing too fantastic or terrible about it. Flashes of Howard-eque descriptions, but also some passages where Jordan was trying a bit too hard and it seemed almost like parody. The humorous sidekick Malak was a good addition to the story. The Tor paperback version I read has classic Ken Kelly cover art.

Besides Howard, Robert Jordan is among the very few who writes this character well. Very fast and enjoyable read. Just can’t get Arnold out of my mind.

ΟΚ, το συγκεκριμένο βιβλίο δεν το έγραψε ο Ρόμπερτ Χάουαρντ, όπως λανθασμένα αναφέρεται στην ελληνική έκδοση, αλλά ο Ρόμπερτ Τζόρνταν, όμως μιας και πρόκειται για ιστορία του Κόναν γράφω το σχόλιο μου για το βιβλίο εδώ. Δύσκολα μπορεί να φτάσει κανείς την ποιότητα των αυθεν [...]

I was always a huge fan of the Conan movies and normally "the book is better than the movie". Of course, Conan was more true to form in the book - coarser, more vulgar, but that didn't bother me. The very ending was completely different from the movie.***SPOILER***In the movie, Conan is invited by Jehnna to rule Shadizar with her, which he declines and leaves to rule his own kingdom (which is not named but would be Aquilonia). "So it was that Conan mourned his lost Valeria". In the book he drink [...]

Conan pastiche. A novelization of the second Conan movie.

Just like the movie. I saw this book randomly at a bookstore at the San Jose airport. Being one of my favorite movies ever I had to buy it right then and there.It was my first story by Robert Jordan. His writing style was smooth, creating a plot that followed the movie almost exactly. It was a smooth transition from film to novel, and it had me wondering which came first. Overall I give it 4 stars. The movie plot itself doesn’t have depth as the first Conan film, and the characters are also ru [...]

Conan the Destroyer is essentially a novelization of the second Conan film. I say essentially because it is penned by the late Robert Jordan, who wrote a lot of Conan adventures before he got famous with the epic Wheel of Time fantasy series. Jordan fills in all the rough edges of the second (abysmal) movie and forges a fun believable adventure out of it. Every defect you might have experienced in the cinema is repaired here. Characters are not wasted as comic relief, for instance. And since boo [...]

За разлика от българските недорасляци, промотирани от бездария, на Джордан сме далеч по-склонни да простим клишенцата в поредното разкошно и епично фентъзи за Конан. Който си го може, го може! (а който не може, го издават партийните перачници на средства, но това е друга тема) [...]

Before James Oliver Rigney gave us the epic Wheel of Time he indulged us with campy pulp fantasy. This wasn't the best of his Conan works but still a fun read - even all these years later.

I had high expectations with these books after I read that Robert Jordan is the best Conan writer alive. Well, maybe this is true. I still have to check other books and stories from him, and although I enjoy this book there are some things Conan-related that I didn't like that much.There are some memorable moments that Jordan writes with passion. The first encounter between Conan and Taramis is great, very Howard-esque. But then he throw some secondary characters that felt that they were taken i [...]

The abundance of cliches wouldn't vex me if they had been written by their inventor in the '30s. But this is 50 years later and even if it's a novelization of the film, I think Robert Jordan could have added a little originality. No - Conan is an irresistible sex machine and an undeafeatable warrior, with a bunch of hardly useful guys around so he won't spend the entire book silent. Overly predictable, non-existent character development, hacking and slashing. In short, exactly what you'd expect. [...]

This is the first Conan I've read, apart from a few comics over the years. Also the first Robert Jordan. Here Conan is bribed into protecting an innocent maiden as she guides them to retrieve a magical artifact. Of course the princess who sent them has a secret agenda. Will Conan's fondest wish be granted? Probably not, but at least he will get some along the way. It is a pretty typical fantasy plot but I haven't read this kind of story since I was much younger so I found it nostalgic in a way. [...]

Nice light reading. I don't believe the book came first, but they got a great Conan author to write a story that takes place in the authentic Conan/REH universe. I read this a long time ago, but as I discovered Jordan's works and Howard's original work, I'm surprised how well they made the adaptation fit in with the larger Conan literature. It's honestly better than the movie.

Okay. It was kind of weak. Clearly this writer was more comfortable writing his own adventure of Conan and not the one that was on screen. As far as movie adaptations go this one was really weak. No narration from the wizard or even a thorough run of the events from the last movie. Some of the writing was average at best. Just as weak as the movie. D+

Me gustó, aunque a ratos Conan se escuchaba un poco extraño, no era tan osco como el conan de Robert E. Howard pero aún así me gustó. Por cierto, es la misma historia de la pelicula que lleva el mismo nombre.El final me gustó mucho también, muy emotivo.

This was about as good as a novelization of a mediocre movie has any right to be. Robert Jordan isn't shy about changing details in order to make the story his own and bring it in line with his other Conan novels, but this is (understandably) his weakest entry in the series.

Jordan wrote Conan like no other. One of my favorite series growing up, and has some kick-ass one-liners. The action sequences are smooth without getting bogged down in unnecessary detail, yet conveying the intensity. Not a kid's book.

I read this my sophomore year in high school. For some reason, the fact that I read the book has stuck with me. Don't judge!!!

I'm one of the few who loves the movie - for its flaws, not despite them. However, likely working off that muddled screenplay, Jordan isn't able to improve much upon it.

This Conan book is superb. By far my favorite that I have read. You get the depth of Conan and the other characters. It goes from one epic moment to the next of non stop Conan action.

Loved the Wheel of Time, Cheyenne Raiders and The Fallon Blood.Didn't love Conan I guess its just too much on the swords and sorcery side of the genre for me. Too many empty calories I guess.

One of my favorite writers, and one of my favorite characters. It is a fairly quick and action-filled read. Well worth it for Conan fans. Yes - it is better than the movie.
