should I just read them because they are TC books, or should I approach them with trepidation?

1. Donaldson has mastered the art of describing complex action sequences.

Yes, 3C is a mature work and of a different order than the others, but perhaps it is only by the shedding of an impossible to realise expectation, that we may truly come to the point of being able to ...

The only really hanging thread that bugs me is the whole unexplained Creator situation. I wish we could get an explanation from SRD but I know his not going outside of the text policy so it is proba ...

I know I am way too late but I would skip the prequels. Also, no point in reading Malloreon if you have read Belegriad. It's really 80-90% the same series rehashed. And yes, his stereotyping is ...

I can't believe he got careless, much less so lazy.

I don't think that's what happened. I have two theories (and maybe both are true):

1. He spent too much time on it and lost the magic. He ...

The One Tree to me is a ponderous read, and the 1 book in the series I have to force myself to read. It really adds very little if anything to the Chronicles, and could have been left out entirely.
