SoT & SoT

Saturday, August 21, 2004

Bought Terry Goodkind's Stone of Tears last week together with the first manga of Hikaru no Go and the latest Edge. While I was actually reading Jordan's book seven of the Wheel of Time series... I started with Stone of Tears and couldn't put it down. So in less than a week I read the nearly 1000 pages of SoT and it was wonderful. And while it has many similarities with Wheel of Time series, I feel Goodkind has built the tension somewhat better. Details but not so many as WoT. But maybe I favour Goodkind over Jordan right now because of where i am in both of the series. Can't remember book two of WoT very well. Anyway I really enjoyed reading SoT and now I should really focus on some more important business... thesis that is... sniffle.

Oh forgot to mention! I also finished PoP: Sands of Time yesterday. And finishing a game is something I rarely do. So one cheer for me! In hours the game didn't took me that long, but spread it over a couple of months, glad I finally had the courage to finish it! Hey, you think maybe finishing two things is a sign? For other stuff I still have to do? I'm on it right now! (Am I babbling? - yes...)

    Maybe I'll go read that series too, it's a good time to start reading some fantasy if you're a bit tense about real-life stuff I always think ;-)
    As it happens I played PoP yesterday it a friends house, and I really liked it, although I heard that the fighting scenes become more annoying later in the game (because of the camera). What did you think of it?

    Hey S. Yeah you can borrow Goodkind if you want, I have the first two books and no space on my bookshelf...so... :D
    I liked PoP very much, yes the fights can become tedious and I was sometimes frustrated by the spawning enemies, but the whole game in itself is worth your while so you should definitely play it!
