    What’s your all time favorite book series?

    Dune was six books. And it's also a favorite of mine. :)

    The Second Apocalypse despite my not finishing TUC. No author has ever been as provocative and thought provoking as R Scott Bakker. Not to me, at least. I liked the Death Gate Cycle too. IMO, was quite innovative and full of memorable characters. I remember being super excited when a new book would come out.

    Goodkind 55: Back in the Dick Life Again

    Honestly, I personally don't think they're unique. The only difference between them and say, Sauron, is that they hide behind "freedom". There's saying about people like this: Scratch a "libertarian" and you have a Fascist. IMO, that's what Richard and Kahlan really are. As for Eric Cartman, are you referring to the South Park character? Because if so, then isn't SP a satire of pretty much everything?

    Bakker LIV - Soul Sphincter

    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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  14. 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.
