Science fiction fantasy
- Sep 10, 2009
Hi Hoarnet. Welcome to the club.Hi guys new to the forums here and just want some opinions from fellow fantasy readers.
I am a huge fan of science fantasy having read the works of Terry Brooks, Raymond E Feist, Robert Jordan, Robin Hobb and David Gemmell to name afew.
I have always steered clear of David Eddings, i can't say why maybe just preconcieved notions? maybe it was whispered to me when i was very young that his books were no good?
I recently read "Redemption of Althalus" and really enjoyed it, however from wat i've read on here this seems to be his most unpopular work. Is that because it is so different from his other books or more of the subject matter/writing in itself?
Basically i'm asking if you would recommend Eddings to someone based on the fact that they enjoy the aforementioned authors.
Thx in advance guys.
I only have one short comment. If you loved something, then it's good. Well as long as it's not a crime, not immoral, not unethical or such like. Why care about what someone else says?
And, since you enjoyed it, why don't you recommend it to a friend. A like minded one, better. Mr. Eddings would love you for that.
Since you've also read DG's fantasy stuff, how about progressing to his HF? Have a browse through his Troy trilogy some time. I recommend it to you.
