  8. Perhaps compare Twilight with all these magnificent books can be taken as an insult… for me, at least.

    No offense to Twilight fans. Of course I’ve never read any George R.R. Martin either. Anyone recommend?

    • Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series (Game of Thrones is the first book) is something I’d conditionally suggest. The first three books are fantastic, but books 4 and 5 slow down a lot. I can understand that happening to a longer series, it happened to The Wheel of Time as well. Between the two, I’d suggest Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time (the first book is titled The Eye of the World) in large part because it’s a finished series.

      That’s the biggest problem with Martin’s series to me, I’m not entirely convinced that it will ever be finished. He’s an older guy, and he writes at a very slow pace. When he finished book 4 there was a letter in the back of the book to his fans saying that book 4 was getting to be too large, so he split it in half, and the other half of book 4 became book 5. He also said that he would have book 5 out within a year or so of book 4 coming out. It didn’t come out for another 6 years. At one point, he hadn’t even updated his website with information about the book for over 3 years. I don’t know if he’s written himself into a corner or if he’s just sick of the story, but his writing is going at a rather glacial pace. He’s also said that if he dies before he finishes the story, he doesn’t want anyone else to finish it for him. (Robert Jordan died before finishing The Wheel of Time, and the last three books were written by Brandon Sanderson.)

      • Thanks 🙂 The main thing that had dissuaded me from starting Wheel of Time was that friends of mine (who knew I loved Tolkien and Robin Hobb) had told me it was very complex and political, and overly slow, political books had never attracted me very much. That’s in addition to the author passing away leaving the series unfinished (last I’d heard). But I’m a bit older now so maybe I’d enjoy it.

        How does one handle reading a series that may never be finished? I read the first six Harry Potter novels in six days a year before the seventh came out (it may have been seven in seven days, because I remember waiting on the last book), and did not enjoy the wait at all.

        How did you like the Sanderson novels to finish Wheel of Time? That’s what I’d be wary of…reading so many novels to find the last three weren’t the same or as good.

        • You can tell that there are a few differences between the way that Sanderson writes and the way that Jordan wrote. Sanderson was a fan of Jordan’s work, and he really appreciated the series and did an excellent job of finishing it. There are one or two characters who seem a little different after Sanderson took over, but it’s not really that big of a difference.

          I’m also a huge fan of Sanderson’s books in general, and I’m glad he was chosen to finish The Wheel of Time, he did a great job with it.

        Agree, at the pace he writes(JRR Martin), he will die before he finishes, but now we can count on HBO to finish it for him… :p

    This is pretty funny! As one who fell into the whole of Twilight to then see the error of my ways I have to agree a bit. It’s fun, but in the end equates to one of those embarrassing moments of our youth we try to pretend we didn’t take part in.

    • Actually, now that I think about it… It’s just that people compare Meyer to other fantasy writers when they really shouldn’t. She’s not even in the same league. It’s like Draco Malfoy pretending to compete with Voldemort (though, with the power of Rowling’s characterization, he did triumph over Voldemort in the end).

    R U Kidding, Martin is nowhere near the other 3. Its been nearly 2 decades and he’s not even close to finish. No, the true heir of the genre is Pat… Rothfuss is the next one to be counted amongst the great fantasy writers!!!
