I've been lurking around these boards for quite some time, and I was finally able to register! I actually found out about the series through a Berserk forum when someone compared Kellhus with one of the Berserk characters, but it took awhile for me to get into as it's hard for me to get into new things.

Finally, in late June when my hard drive/entire computer failed and was without one for two weeks. So, I finally started reading the Prince of Nothing then.  I found it slow, at first, but then Kellhus met that sorcerer and then I was all in! :)

This series has become among my favorites if not THE favorite.

Lol  You wouldn't happen to be XionHorsey from Skullknight right? This is 'The Warrior-Prophet'. Good to see you here. Now get back to my reply on the other board, don't wanna cross the streams.  :P

IMO, it's so radically different from many of the others. I tend to be a sucker for philosophy and found much of the story interesting and thought-provoking.

This series got to me in ways that no other series actually has and I think that will be hard to replicate.

Welcome.  It's unfortunate how much you disliked TUC, but I do also tend to prefer PoN to TAE, in a general sense, although there are certainly moments in each TAE book that are some of Bakker's best writing.
“I am a warrior of ages, Anasūrimbor . . . ages. I have dipped my nimil in a thousand hearts. I have ridden both against and for the No-God in the great wars that authored this wilderness. I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury.” -Cet’ingira

Welcome.
“The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before?”

Yes, I do agree there for the most part. :) But, honestly, it would be hard to choose which set is better as each one had its strengths, weaknesses, and my own bias.

Thank you, Madness and Redeagl.

For me its the evil depravity ... the philosophy ( or anti-philosophy ) all goes over my head. Welcome all the same.

YOU being the problem is less of a problem than if you weren't.
