I can't imagine trying to slog through Steven Ericksons prose more then once, my head hurts just thinking about. Like many others I bounced hard off of GOTM. People have told me to give it a second chance but there really wasn't a single thing I like about GOTM, and nothing I have heard of the following books convinces me they are much better. The charecters seemed like D&D charictures, ever one more powerfull then the last, the charecters actions were almost completely random and the prose, Ouch.[/quote:1e2p38xd]

I agree completely. I've tried to read most of his books, and I've not been able to finish one, and that is very unusual for me, since I can read most anything and I generally dislike leaving books half-finished. I simply don't see what the big deal about Erikson is all about. His work is just not something I care to read.

Then again, to each their own . . . <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> view post
