dusted off in read-only

I picked up one of Goodkind's books once and saw a defensive, jingoistic dedication to the "valiant" people of the CIA who keep the darkness at bay or some such hog wash and I promptly put the book back on the shelf and never picked one up again. How can you read the book of someone who is clearly an ignorant fool?! I don't really know that much about the medieval world, I just know a little because the classics of Persian literature were written in that period. I'm more of a late 18th, early 19th century kind of person. But Persian lit is a cumulative tradition and you have no context for the later stuff unless you read from the 9th century onwards... view post
