Nostalgia: Fav part of the trilogy? posted 28 March 2009 in The Thousandfold ThoughtNostalgia: Fav part of the trilogy? by Truth Shines, Candidate

Heh, it might be easier just to name the parts we don't like... <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D -->

I'll go first: the part when Esmi leaves Sumna to follow Akka after the encounter with Aurang in TDTCB. Kinda boring... <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->

OK back to the favs. I really like that joke Kellhus told in TWP, something like &quot;Before you criticize someone, you should ride his horse for a day... Because then you are one day away and have his horse.&quot; <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

Also, you just can't over look the theophany of the No-God. The towering whirlwind evokes Yahweh in the Book of Job. And the maddening questions it asks -- the ultimate proof that this series is MORE than just high fantasy. Take that, Sauron! I'm not just evil. I'm incomprehensibly evil. view post
