Pretty light again, huh? And another series that I only have bits and pieces of. Actually, I read the first five of Robert Jordan‘s The Wheel of Time series in high school. I borrowed them from friends at that time, and only started collecting the books myself when I saw them for sale at the local library. I didn’t have any money at that time you’ll recall, so I couldn’t buy them new and for some reason people in my life didn’t like giving me gift cards to book stores for Christmas and birthdays, despite that being the only thing I ever asked for. Strange. Anyway, I liked the series well enough though I read it after I read Terry Goodkind‘s Sword of Truth and the similarities were too numerous to enjoy it as much as I could have. It didn’t help that the characters I liked died, or disappeared, or went insane (this is how I remember it at least. It was over a decade ago and people have corrected my memory whenever I talk about this series). I still recommend it, and I’ll probably pick it up again once I start filling the gaps in my collection.
Theodore Judson‘s Fitzpatrick’s War is a book that was recommended to me so often by my circle of friends that I finally bought it. I still haven’t read it though. It’s just never appeared that high up in my queue.
It’s a light day today folks. The rest of the letters are laughing at J. Have any recommendations to beef up the ranks? Like any of the books written by the above authors? Let me know in the comments.
