I forgot to mention that I will actually miss Pearl. :/

Erikson is also pretty weak with romance.

Well, you can try starting Deadhouse Gates. Some people have done that, but it's not a good idea.  If you tried to get through GOTM THREE times, then yikes...it's not for you. However, once I got to Memories of Ice, it was all worth it. It's STILL my favorite and I'm 89% in the Bonehunters.

What got me into Malazan was being told that it was the reason Bakker got published. That, and the fact that I was already aware of how the story was being told. Oh, and some spoilers...

Quote from: H
may be there isn't a difference?

Saved me reading a whole 'nother series there.  Not really, wasn't going to read it anyway...

There's a huge difference. 1. Malazan (well, the main series) is finished. 2. Berserk is nowhere near so long winded. 3. The God Hand, including Griffith, would be eaten alive by other powers.

Well, I finished up all 39 current volumes of the Berserk manga...

And what do you think?

63% into the Bonehunters. Finally picking up again. Ah, Karsa, so right and so wrong.

Also peaked a bit more into Toll the Hounds...my, that was an oopsie.

46% Bonehunters. TBH, this one's a bit of a slower read.

32% in the Bonehunters. I can only say: JESUS CHRIST...

Didn't think that would happen so soon.

I think it's done on purpose because Malazan is ultimately about the world itself and the ideas/history within it. However, this means that most characters are going to just be there and quite a few are rather boring tbh.

But, I'm glad I got into it. I would have never met my cinnamon roll, Itkovian, if I haven't.

Oh, I did. And yea, he's obviously critical of capitalism, which is perfect for me, but he could have stated it in fewer words.

I'm 11% complete in Midnight Tides. And yea, it certainly looks like it and Lether is a shithole.

Here's my "review" of House of Chains. Watch out for spoilers! https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2508371352

Now on to Midnight Tides.

52% complete. House of Chains is a quicker read, but I don't think it has the same emotional impact MOI did. Like, I don't care as much.

Tavore makes me smile though. She is impressive. However, she is a little too remote which would explain why people have doubts, but it's clear to me that she has to have a "queenly mask" and she does show her humanity in private.
