Question about Malazan Book of the Fallen

Recommended Posts

I've only read the first in the series... It took forever for me to get into, and the thought of continuing is somewhat daunting, although I'm well aware that most people consider it worthwhile.

 

It's just that I prefer my reading for enjoyment not to be so much work.  >.>

I got my classmate to read Malazan Book of the Fallen :happy:

 

 

To be honest, he was going to complete Dune, then start with Kingkiller and then start Malazan Book of the Fallen, so I didn't make a great achievement. Currently, he is reading Kingkiller Chronicles.

 

 

Your classmate has excellent taste.

 

Took me a while to get through it, but I loved Gardens of the Moon.  The most frustrating thing was the switch to Darujhistan right after I was getting really invested in the Bridgeburners.  I've been stalled out on Deadhouse Gates for a while now.

 

As for Dune, the first book is probably my favorite science fiction novel.  The second is excellent.  The third is ok.  I haven't read past that.

 

Everyone should read the Kingkiller Chronicles btw.

I have the first Dune book on my "to be read" bookshelf, with full intentions of getting around to it eventually.

 

Kingkiller chronicles, though...  :wub: :wub: :wub:

I have a friend who used to be on DM, every time I see her she tries to get me to read this book, but for some reason I have yet to pick it up.

 

Let us know how you get on with Tina. One day I will read it

Im with Wombat on this one. The whole "new characters and the perspective changes" from book to book has always put me off. Ive been stuck on the beginning of the second book for quite some time. Maybe if I join in on Tinas thoughts thread when she gets to it I can continue onwards.

    • Actually a really interesting theory, but Lan was suffering the effects of losing his Aes Sedai. The fact he was suffering from that means it wasn't her simply releasing it.  His new Aes Sedai was bedding him and stuff to try and keep him alive.   I feel RJ made a mistake with Moraine having the bond transfer.  She told Lan about it in book 2, it would of made more sense for her to do it after going through the doorway and entering Rhudiean.
    • Did Moraine intentionally fake her death? ie, the bond didn’t break, Moraine passed the bond before she launched herself at Lanfear. Lan was unconscious so he wouldn’t have noticed. And no one else would have either.  She may have known she had to convince Rand not to come after her and her apparent death was the easiest way to accomplish it.  Moraine may have also know Nynaeve needed Lan so she could have the wherewithal to help Rand. 
    • Is RJ/BS saying that a man can heal himself if he is mentally ill?
    • Actually when Reading of Rand shielded I learned something new that changes things vastly. When Women link, the person leading actually loses the total she can draw.  Siuan was using women linked, so she only had a fraction of what the ten women could channel independently. That fraction may have been large (9/10) or small (3/10) but it is probably somewhere in between. But when 6 women shield a man, they don’t link. All 6 independently shield the man, that’s why there are 6 points and if a woman leaves, she ties off her own weave (at one point Rand had three knots holding his shield).  None of this answers the multiplier effect of the saangreal.  I agree Nynaeve may have been wrong, but how far off can she be? Also this was before she reached her own max. Say Nynaeve attained her max some point before fighting Moghedien.
