    I put the Silmarillion off for years because I was scarred by The Book of Lost Tales - which looked/sounded so cool (but is so, so boring). The Lost Tales are basically early versions of the Silmarillion. Then I stumbled across this blog, read a few posts and decided to hold off on reading more until I'd read the actual work -and . . . I really mostly liked it better than I thought I would. Well worth reading.

    I happen to follow Sanders on twitter and noticed that you can hear him on this podcast talking about the Trinity, might save you the trouble of reading his book.

    I really liked that one. I know I read at least one sequel which I also remember liking.

    I really liked it too. It was a pretty neat story.

    I picked up the next one, "Red Seas Under Red Skies," but I needed a break from fantasy. I haven't read it yet.

    Yeah, I've got to space that kind of thing out some. Fantasy in general, but particularly the twisty-turny complex scheme/emotional stakes thing in these. I like it, but not too much in a row. When you get back to it, I remember liking Red Seas Under Red Skies as well.

    Re: What are you reading currently?

    Ordered Johnny Tremain for my bigger kids as a book I remembered liking a lot as a kid. Eventually got them to agree to at least read the first chapter or so because I think they'll like it, but on the condition that if they do I can't say "I knew it, I told you so!"



    Meanwhile I picked it up to leaf through and got hooked myself. So far it's holding up pretty well, and I still think they'd like it if they give it a chance.

    The Gentlemen Bastards books were pretty good, especially if you like heist stories. The later stories were much weaker than Lies though.

    A friend just loaned me Gardens of the Moon. It's a bit different from the fantasy I'd normally read but I'm enjoying it well enough so far.

    You know Gardens is book 1 of 10 right? It's a good series. The books tend to skip around a bit though time and 1-2 aren't as good as the others, but it's a fun adventure story for the most part.

    Just thought about a series to recommend. Dennis Taylor is the author. The first book is We Are Legion (We Are Bob). Semi-comedy SF. Tells a cool story. Was a trilogy. Just noticed there's now a fourth one. The trilogy is a well contained story, though.

    As far as I can tell, only available through Amazon. I listened on Audible. I have never seen the paperbacks in a store.

    Yes lol I'm aware. Quite a brave step.

    Unpopular opinion: rather read those 10 than the Wheel of Time again.
