Good Book? posted 14 February 2005 in Off-Topic DiscussionGood Book? by spleef, Commoner

I recently got a book from a friend (the darkness that comes before)
but I was wondering if this is the right book to start on because there are alot of things the book doesn't explain I was thinking maybe there is a prequel or something that i could read before i read the darkness that comes before. but anyways i am a 17 yr old student who goes to highschool and i enjoy video game rpgs anyone who is also interested i suggest a great free online morpg <!-- s:arrow: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_arrow.gif" alt=":arrow:" title="Arrow" /><!-- s:arrow: --> Quest.dfxwebs.com

Just a note first. I moved your thread here, the "Welcomes" thread is just for introducing yourself. No worries.

Back on topic. I would never read the thrid book before the first. If the author wanted us to read the third book first, it would be the first book, not the thrid. Darkness is the first book in the series and I beleive that you should start with it. Just remember, "All good things come to those who wait." Welcome to our forum! view post

I have to agree with Will on this one. There are some series that can be read out of sequence, though I'd never suggest it for the first time through. Erikson's Malazan series could be read, 1-3-2-4-5, with minimal spoilers for the out of sequence books.

In a series like Bakkers, it's a bad idea to read the books out of sequence. A great deal of the weight and power of later books comes from the character development and mystery of the earlier books. Sometimes, a story needs time to build, wrap a reader up, before it explodes. If you skip to the middle or last book, you miss the careful preparations of the author, you miss the depth, and power of the actions, revelations and decisions. view post

Piers Anthony's Incarnations of Immortality series can be read out of order. They're also an amazing read, if anyone has the inclination.
