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.

    • You can carry water in a metal bucket, or a plastic bucket, or a glass vase, or a ceramic jar. You could scoop it up with a wooden spoon, or a glass bowl, or even a hat.   Just as there are a lot of ways to do the same thing in mundane tasks, there are a lot of ways to do the same thing with the Power.
    • Remember that there's also a fountain in the city that presumably gets water from the lake.
    • Just because she thinks it doesn't mean it's true. Character POVs are not objective truths.   In addition, we don't really know how the Power stacks up. Two women Linking does not double the amount of power available, it only makes the circle somewhat stronger than a lone channeler. However, being stronger means being able to do more things, things you couldn't do before. That's why angreal and circles are useful.   A circle of channelers can easily shield an equal number of unlinked channelers, but if the unlinked channelers attacked the circle from different directions and in different ways, the circle would have a difficult time fending them off, since only one person can control the flows.   So we really don't know how much stronger Nynaeve is compared to the other AS, and how much stronger the circle + sa'angreal makes them. I know there is a ranking listed in the BWB, but those values are not necessarily on a linear scale. For example, is Rand, who is rated 100, only 1% stronger than Demandred, who's 99? We really don't know.
    • Thanks.  Are you aware of any site that has compiled a list (with sources) of what each state is actually doing in plain-English as well as the exact wording used in legalese?  Side Note: Apparently Legalese isn't actually slang.
