My post got lost in the server thingamaboo.

Ben Bova, Frank Herbert, Philip K Dick, Greg Bear, and William Gibson. They can range from easy reading to more in depth novels.

I agree with this. The story simply isn't good enough imo to deserve 14 (or whatever) 1000 page books.

I disagree with both of you completely. But you might find it interesting that The WOT series was originally intended to be six books, but when Jordan got to the 5th book he realized there was no way he could give the story a proper ending in six books.

i don't think they are particularly poorly written (nor particularly well written) or anything, i just stopped caring.

Well I'm half way through the eighth book and I'm starting to have to chug through it. I love the story and most of the characters but RJ is soo long winded, it becomes a little bit of a chore to finish a book. I'm going to take a break when I finish this one.

But for reals people. Check this out.

I know, and it's been time well spent reading it, though once I finish the whole series I will most likely never read it again.

The Road will make you want to put your head in an oven. Just be forewarned.

Be patient with "The Road"

It's not an easy read

Loved the road.

Thanks everyone! I'll start The Road after the Olympics on a don't-have-anything-else-to-do weekend. Good thing it's the off season.

My favorite fantasy series is the 'Song of Ice and Fire' by George RR Martin.

I have really enjoyed his stuff and he not afraid to kill of main characters which is refreshing...

This right here is the best fantasy ever.

Possibly the best fiction ever.
