TDTCD third on SFsite's year's best list! posted 06 Mar 2004, 11:03 by Mithfânion, Didact

This is some pretty high praise. SFsite's yearly poll is the biggest Fantasy/Sci fi poll that I'm aware of, and for years has been listing the year's best books (as you will see below). Darkness didn't even appear on the editor's list but the readers voted it third, which surprised me because I didn't know so many people had read the book already. Check out past year's winners to get some reference (Erikson won in 2002 with House of Chains) http://www.sfsite.com/columns/best04b.htm view post

Yeah, I thought it amazing! However popularity contest should always be taken with a pinch of salt, although SF polls seem fairly sensitive. As to the Editor list, maybe many contributors didn't get to read the book (even if it has got a nice reputation on the net, which is why I suspect so many internauts voted for it) view post

He should have come in first, I'm in the middle of TDTCB and it is the most brilliant fantasy I have read since my favorite George R R Martin view post
