  1. I read the first 3 books in this series some years ago, and thought the first one was quite well done, but 2 & 3 became progressively weaker. If you've read any of the books in this series, what did you think of them? And if you've read any beyond the first 3, how has the series progressed, IYO?
  2. Great series - does anyone know when the 5th book is coming out?
  3. I don't necessarily agree or disagree w/ Objectivism. But like practically any 'belief system', it is open to interpretation defined in the interests of those applying it. In other words, some may be very narrow in said application and can come off as incredibly hard-hearted, others less so,,,
  4. Kal, there is definitely magic in the Malazan books, I'd highly recommend trying it. Ice & Fire - excellent series, but less overt magic The Runelords? I read the 1st book some years ago ... and was not particularly taken w/ it, but you might want to give it a try. You may see something in it that I did not.
  5. Go with Malazan, definitely. Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn is good. Sword of Shannara was pretty good, but could only get through 1/2 of the Elfstones. As to Goodkind, not only is he preachy, but as writers invariably write something of themselves into their characters, it is helpful if who they are is at least interesting/attractive. Sadly, Goodkind, as I take him to be Richard, is all powerful, solves all problems, has all the women after him, many w/ a distinct S&M fetishist flavor(not that there's anything wrong with that, I simply do not want that kind of insight into the man's 'fantasy' life). In short, he is boring, yet for some reason I made my way through the first 4 in the series. Not sure why,
  6. I seem to have trouble signing in at all. I thought I had activated properly, but it seems to take several efforts to get in. Also, what are these 'organizations' that one has to join? I was a very active follower of practically any site I could find back around 2000, but have been away from it for some time, and was never a poster. It would seem that many of the sites I frequented, may no longer exist ... yet I cannot even remember their names ???
