Scott Bakker ruined it for me. posted 28 October 2006 in Off-Topic DiscussionScott Bakker ruined it for me. by Entropic_existence, Moderator

I can be relatively snobby when it comes to fantasy, but that said I enjoy some good old swords n' sorcery, babes n' blades style fantasy novels as well. I have a guilty pleasure in the form of DnD based books and David Gemmel novels. But they don't compare, for me, to Bakker, Erickson, Martin, etc.

I'm also a fan of the Wheel of Time despite some of its many flaws. I think the world Jordan created was brilliant and exciting even if his writing can be pedantic at times.

I refuse to read Harry Potter though, I've read a few excerpts and although I can appreciate the fact that it is a pretty cool series with a good world and interesting characters the writing style and difficulty level kind of turns me off a bit. Maybe when that series is all done I'll check them all out of the library and read the entire series over a long weekend <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> view post
