ah the Farseer trilogy,
that stable master in those books (don't remember his name) was like FitzChivalry's father, he basically raised him and taught him morality. at the end when the stable master and Fitz's girl thought that Fitz was dead they got together. now i know that realistically back in medieval times that may have been regular but the author played upon mostly updated emotions for the majority of the trilogy. it felt pretty weird to me anyway. even with that aside though the last part of the last book was written differently than the rest, from about the time they started following that magic road i would say. the resolution to those raiding ships was kinda just summarized in the end and it felt like that should have been a fourth book. also it ended as if that was the end of FitzChivalries story and i highly doubt that the author had plans to continue writing about him.
similarly the Dragonlance books by Weis and Hickman had a pretty clear end after the Legends trilogy.
(that Raistlin horse gets beaten alot!)
Thomas Covenant: blargish
the whole time the guys like, oh i can't believe this is real, and, oh let me rape young girls even though i'm some writer from America. apparently it was real enough for him to get his bone on! cerealy though, i have confused a dream for reality but i have never confused reality for a dream (except for maybe when i become too intoxicated) and this premiss wears thin fast to me. its my understanding that there are supposed to be deeper meanings and themes with this series but i am really only interested in the storytelling and i found it to be pretty lame, and if the story’s not entertaining than what am i spending my leisure time on it for? this is another one of those books where someone from earth has to save fantasy land too, why can't they have their own heroes? (actually it might have been earth being saved too i stopped halfway through)
i actually read all but the last of the Elric books cause a library where i lived at the time had the whole saga. the first Elric book was best, mostly because its where everything is introduced. even the first book i hardly recommend though, unless you have nothing but time on your hands. of course many seem to have a high opinion of the Elric series but i thought it was pretty overrated. this series was when i decided to stop reading sequels simply because i started a series. i realized there are just too many things to do in life to feel like you have to complete something even if your not enjoying it.
