I agree that the trilogy has made it difficult to read other works. There is too much childishness in most fantasy fiction which most authors big up with a bit of violence or nasty baddy stuff. ADULTS ARE YOUR READERS and I think, generally, we really don't believe that heroes (or other!) are perfect and holy and selfless and chaste and blah blah blah. For example, I loved the mental anguish that Achamian went through and the intense, natural emotions that he endured - vengance, lust, jealousy, loss, self preservation - a truly believable but unpredictable character with whom one can identify and admire, not a fairy tale 500 year old celibate magician whose life and deeds would rival JC ! Also can you tell me, was Cnaiur a good guy or a bad guy ??? He is a brilliant paradox - give us some more bad good guys and good bad guys Mr S B ! view post
