Scott Bakker ruined it for me. posted 27 October 2006 in Off-Topic DiscussionScott Bakker ruined it for me. by alhana, Auditor

I just started Earagon, the first book of the Inheirtance Series and coming soon to the a thearter near you this December! My oldest son read the book and we just bought the second book, Eldest that he is going to read as soon as he finishes Harry Potter, Half-Blood Prince again.

Just like anything else in life, I try not to compare as this limits one's judgement to make one thing "better than" and another thing "bad". I just enjoy well written literature. On the other hand, Mr. Bakker has raised the bar for what I consider to be "well written". In my opinion, the English language has become rather compromised in the over-use of slang, Webspeak, and outright bad grammar; I think it is great when an author produces a work of epic proportions that reminds us that the written word can still be an art. view post
