The Living Force
I read the Wheel of the time many years ago, but not all the books, I think I stopped at the 10 or so. Yesterday I was thinking to start again this series, but it is soooo long. It was a very young man that introduced me to the Jordan saga. And also I was thinking to reread for the third time the Lord of the Ring, that is a magnificent book and so well written! I refused to see the movie because I want to create the characters and the sites by myself. I remember the first time I read the saga, I was curious by what the hobbits eat. The humor also. And the stories in the story. I was impressed also when they went to the forest and the trees were bad and mad trees and when they were lost. Since then, when I look at a tree, I try to forget they can be mischievous.I read the story many years ago (Silmarillion - Bilbo the hobbit and Lords of the Rings), and I just loved it. For me it was one if not the greatest stories of all time for that kind of stories.
But, right now I am reading The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan (15 huge books or 29 pocket book) and it is truly amazing.
So if you have really appreciated The Lord of the Rings, give it a try.
It is a fantastic story, both the Tolkien and also the Jordan. What an extraordinary imagination had these writers! And these stories are now part of ourselves.
Michael, you telling us how you discovered the Lord of the Ring and the power of it in your life is in itself a magnificent story.
