Ah. That dreaded chat window will not be enlarged. I usually use MSN, but most of the Watchers haven't added my new MSN addy to their lists. Evil or Very Mad

Thank you for the welcome VS! I will have to find Edge and send a PM. My chat experience was best left alone... I fooled around with the colors and emoticons to get the feel of the interface. My only complaint is that I haven't found a way to enlarge the chat window.

Be wary of chat pms from Revan. Once you give in to one, you are doomed Wink

The Linden Avery sequence tied in really well, and the cliffhanger at the end has me drooling for book 8.


After reading Runes, it is definetly my new favorite... And I was hung up on the cliffhanger for a week, mad at Donaldson and cursing him for doing such a mean mean thing.

Again, thank you all for the warm welcome, I definetly look forward to visiting the other boards and joining in. Thanks again!

Yes, it's just that the definition of 'everyone' is debated Wink

I think WGW is my favorite. It could be argued that if I wasn't incredibly impressed with all the others I wouldn't have gotten that far, so perhaps it isn't my favorite, but I'm going with it anyway. I laughed, I cried, I shook my fists... does it get any better?

So far, Runes has only left me hanging. A pleasant read, but... I dunno, the story already felt completed to me.

Welcome all. Personally, I like them all. Couldn't choose one above the others.

Hope you all have a great time her at The Watch.

Its a hard decision. By a narrow win, I would say The One Tree. Part as it takes TC off the continental mass across an ocean, the book being a Giantish tale, and we meet new entities such as elohim. And of course the failed attempt to cut a branch off the One Tree in order to fashion a new Staff of Law.

I am currently reading The Runes Of The Earth, only slightly spoilt (now know there is a cliffhanger at the end) - but will read diligently through SRD's excellent literature to the end.

I'm going to suprise myself and say that The One Tree is my favorite of the books. It used to be my LEAST favorite. I used to dislike it because it: a) was all Linden, all the time, and b) took place outside the Land. Now I love it for those exact reasons. Linden is a great character, and the realms of the Earth outside the Land are definitely worth exploring... in fact, they are worth exploring MORE.

I used to like The Wounded Land the best, but now I think it ranks third. The Power that Preserves really hit me hard last time I read it, and it is firmly in 2nd place.

For those who said, Lord Foul's Bane, well, to each his own, but I always thought it was just above average. It didn't have the emotional impact on me that the other volumes did.

The Wounded Land. And yeah Linden really grows on you. Not necessarily while reading the books (2nd Chronicles to Runes) but after reading the books.

Hail Dee Nekura! Welcome to Kevin's Watch.

And, by the way too far south is never too far...unless you live in the middle of nowhere in Alabama, which I was fortunate enough to escape from. Wink That is, indeed, too far south, in both geography and culture.

Am I the only one terrified and not too happy about a movie being made out of these books?


Not terrified nor unhappy. Just skeptical.
But then who wasn't about Lord of the Rings...?

Out of the 7 books, which one is everybody's favorite.


The Illearth War: pivotal in our view of the Land (first time we have a clue of the Land's reality), introducing the wonderfull irony that is Elena, and for its heart-wrenching passages of utter despair -- e.g. Hile Troy's realization, on Kevin's Watch, of the immensity of Foul's army and the certain death of those he is commanding.

Followed closely by The Power That Preserves, which brings about closure in victory, without the mistake of a happy ending where everything is made whole: we are left with a scarred Land, with irreversibly scarred characters, but within which, nevertheless, hope is found.

(Note: haven't read the 7th book yet...)
