Good description in a novel slips in almost unnoticed but very much appreciated.  It gives you pictures in your mind that may never be forgotten.  In a fantasy the writer will have worked even harder to portray its strange and mythical creatures to his reader in a way he will understand, making the picture so much more unique.  Description helps the novel to flow, like a river.  Whether the river will be smooth and memorable or choppy and confusing, depends on the description's quality.  Like the current of the river, good description pulls the book through, creating a timeless classic.
