Well, time flies when you're reading The Dark Tower series... hehehe, see what I did there?
Ok, bad joke. Moving on.
I finished Stephen King's Dark Tower series a while ago, and I liked it. I didn't mind that the end was predictable and stupid.. it couldn't have been any other way, really. King even goes so far as to say he would have stopped the book a chapter early (without Roland reaching the Dark Tower).. but that would have been frustrating as all hell!
Anyway.. I haven't got any more to say about it, so moving on!
If you don't know that name, then you damn well should!!
'The Name of the Wind' - by Patrick Rothfuss
The main character, Kvothe, is brilliant.
The story is amazing!
The writing is sublime!
Read it now!
'The Wise Man's Fear' is the second in the series.. and equally as awesome.
The third book........... is unwritten!!!
I know, it's incredibly frustrating, but that's just the way it is. Read the first two anyway. You are armed with the knowledge that the story is unfinished, so go forth and read. Don't fear. Just read. The third book will come along soon....... hopefully!
So, I'm at a bit of a loose end at the moment. I finished 'The Wise Man's Fear' a few weeks ago and I've been trying to find something to fill the gap.
I've never read any Pratchett, and it was recommended to me, so I've downloaded the first book onto Kobo on my phone, and I'm trying so hard to get into it! It's a real struggle, but knowing there are 35 books in the series makes me feel a little comforted that I won't be left hanging so soon... but I've got to be drawn in first.
I've been so distracted with my artwork and stuff lately that it's hard to clear my head and concentrate. It's going to be a crazy busy summer this year (plus I've just launched my YouTube channel!), but hopefully I should be able to compartmentalise things and get myself organised soon. I'm moving house (bought my own flat, yay!), and I've got a good plan on how I'm going to lay everything out, which should be great fun to organise.
Life just keeps getting better and better, really. But it is harder and harder to find books to satisfy me. I'm hoping Pratchett can deliver!
Book recommendations are always welcome, by the way!
