I actually tried to re-read the series at one point, and even as a fan, I had to break things up. Read one WoT book, then one non-WoT book.

There's absolutely a storyline for the whole series.  It's about the Dragon Reborn* preparing for the final battle against... basically Satan, who is about to break out of the prison he was put into thousands of years earlier and take over the world.

*Not trying to be pretentious there - I just don't want to ruin anything if you don't know which character that is yet.

Even after 11,000 pages, the series isn't quite over yet - there's one more book to go, scheduled to come out in about a year.  Robert Jordan died a few years ago, but knew that he was going to die without finishing the series, so he took tons of notes, recorded hours and hours of sessions talking about what needed to happen, and picked someone to finish the remaining books.  The new guy has done a really great job so far, though.

I've only read the first Sword of Truth book... so I'll leave the comparison to someone else.  I prefer the Wheel of Time series, though.

Cool, thanks!

the only thing i dont like is the character Lan. The way he calls everyone by their profession: "come, blacksmith" "listen to me sheepherder" is annoying

Nicely done my friend,

And those pants are out of sight

I like that. I think Elves should be sort of fey.

They were basically shorter humans w/ pointy ears in the 1st game.

For the most part the background stories in DA1 were sort of 'tried and true" but morrigan's was really cool when all was said and done.

Raising Arizona is an incredible movie.

I love the music in it. An additional bonus is nic cage in a role that makes him look like....nic cage (i.e. a psycho)

I started watching The Wire last night.... so good. Lot of good performances so far.

Movies I want to see:
True Grit
I love you phillip morris
black swan

Hey, cool - hope you love it.  It's gonna get slow at some point, but hopefully it'll be for you like it was for me: far enough into the series that I slogged on anyway.  A couple of books later, things picked back up, and now we're one book away from the end.  It may even come out before you get that far.

And yay for Agatha Christie!

I enjoy the writing style a lot. Though I probably won't read the series in one straight shot. Since I don't know much about the series at all actually I wanna ask, is there a major arcing storyline or do the books sort stand on their own?

Also, are you happy with the way the whole thing ended up after like a billion pages?

Did you read the sword of truth books? How do those compare?

7002  Media / Brush and Quill / Re: Book Thread Continued on: December 18, 2010, 10:30:10 PM
started the wheel of time series.

Takes a while to get used to all the odd names whenever you start a new fantasy epic... but I like it.

To all the people complaining about re-releases taking away from the next original title:

Do you really want the scrubs in charge of updating graphics and menus making FF15?

DDS has to be one of the most overrated games here.

I don't care how cool the story and design is, battling the same demons 1000 times while trying to walk 10 feet is not fun.

I doubt I'll play DDS2

Exaggeration much? Battling is the fun part. And you're missing the best part if you don't play DDS2.

I am exaggerating a bit, but the encounter rate is too high for me, and the dungeons are pretty uninteresting environments.

Maybe I'm just salty right now, but I will beat the game and wait until then until I give a love/hate review.
