after reading Brandon's story about Min and the guy from Terry Goodkinds books, I think Suvudu should do a fantasy author death match.

This will let brandon take out all his rage on Terry Goodkind and put an end to him.

Terry Goodkind would be mad.....he doesn't write fantasy, he writes  books with meaning, because ya know, fantasy is meaningless escapism that never explores important human themes.

Now why'd you have to go and push that button?!

Brandon's writeup was so awesome. The only Goodkind jibe it's missing is something about "not fantasy"!

Pity I only know Sword of Truth by reputation.  On the other hand, I have read Atlas Shrugged, so yeah, I follow.

Trust me, you're better off not having read it.

Actually, the first 2-3 books are not that bad.

Bejay: Go back and re-read Richard's brother's "fire is bad" speech at the very start of the first book.  Keep in mind that in pre-electrical societies, (especially ones with no magic,) the controlled use of fire is synonymous with civilization itself.  But people were listening and agreeing instead of denouncing him a an obvious nutcase.

There were a few entertaining bits in the first few books, but on the whole the series is rotten through and through, from the beginning to the end.

To be honest though... Although I much prefer anything from Sanderson vs Goodkin, I did enjoy SoT, and although Mistborn was much better... I don't think Vin could have actually beat Zedd. But... it's a fan based competition, so... go Vin! :)

I liked Wizard's first rule. It's heavy on the philosophy so it's not a fast read, but still really good.  I actually put it in the same catagory as Ender's Game.  Both are really good, but enough was resolved in the first book that I didn't feel a need to read the rest of the series.

Yeah, but at least the rest of the Ender's series was decent, if not anywhere close to as good as the first one.  I really enjoyed the Bean sequels, Ender's Shadow, Shadow of the Hegemon, and Shadow Puppets.  The ones that followed Ender's line were... kind of boring :/

The only ones I read were Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow.  I tried to read the next one in the Ender's line, but I couldn't do it.  It was much too boring.
