Fallible wrote:Ah well lots of people said how brilliant Bakker was, that his books are philosophy as much as fantasy, so in my normal impulsive way I bought all three books in the trilogy which were his only published works at the time. I only ever read the first one and that was a struggle. Perhaps I didn't have my correct brain in at that time, but I found it to be a handful of really good ideas buried under a mountain of incomprehensible wittering and stereotypical characters. Neal Stephenson is much better IMO.

If you feel this way, I can only say NEVER EVER read a book by Terry Goodkind.

PS: Robert Jordan kinda sucks. :P
