    Bakker LIV - Soul Sphincter

    I found it here: https://www.reddit.com/r/bakker/comments/8rr62z/spoilersfinished_listening_to_the_thousandfold/e0tv5p5/

    I heard that he was actually pressured to get things done quickly. If this is true, then it would explain a lot.

    WOW! How very zen. Does sound a bit Buddhist though.

    All this talk about meaning and no meaning. Blagh. And honestly, "true to life" is getting to be a tiresome excuse. I mean, he's right, but that doesn't change the fact that TUC was handled rather poorly.

    Bakker LIV - Soul Sphincter

    For me, it was: 1. CLERIC. Everything involving him. "You will hear my sermon!" 2. All scenes with Proyas, ESPECIALLY in the Great Ordeal, despite the, er, rape. In TUC? At first? Yes. After being "hung out to dry"? HELL NO!!!!!1 3. Dagliash and BOOM. Aftermath. 4. Ishteribinth 5. The Survivor/Boy 6. The "slog of slogs". 7. Everything involving Inrilatas because he should have been the Emperor.

    is the WoT series worth reading

    Well, I read a sample of Sanderson's work(Memory of Light). But, tbh, I'm only going by what I've heard from the WOT fandom.

    is the WoT series worth reading

    Not to me. I quit reading during the third book because I got bored. It has some good moments, but it's a hell of a slog that isn't worth the effort, imo. It gets better with Sanderson though.
  8. Oh, I wasn't aware of that. I guess I'm thinking of earlier stuff. I do remember someone saying that, "The purpose of Terry Brooks was to make Stephen Donaldson look good." Yoiks.
  9. I think Terry Brooks endures because, imo, his works are generally "safe". As for Lord Foul's Bane, well, I don't see why it shouldn't be a classic. The first Chronicles of Thomas Covenant is actually pretty damned good. The others? Well, not so much. :/

    It is. The weekly re-read has a lot to do with it.
  11. I'm sad about that too. I really loved(and still do) The Second Apocalypse.

    I guess that's what happens when you're a little TOO much of an "Ivory Tower" sort. Honestly, even if he was aware, I doubt it would have made a difference.

    I just think he tried way too hard to be subversive and there were too many "dead ends." Worse yet, there were subversion that could have worked, but they didn't happened at all. It's like he was subversive when he shouldn't have been, but when he should have been, he wasn't. Something like that.

    That kind of makes me wonder. If Proyas wasn't a POV character, would I have RAGE QUIT TUC? We may never know. As for Esmenet, I wasn't bothered by her being a POV character because it was important to see how she coped being in the situation she was in, I was bothered by the fact that it was largely boring and repetitive. However, I think BOTH of them had POVs because they were both important to Achamian and Proyas' faith was shattered. I don't think that would have had as much of an impact if he didn't have any POV chapters.

    Bakker LIII - Sranc and File

    Bakker himself would have been a bit more difficult to follow, but that's just me.
