The Last Chronicles of Thomas Covenant
« on: January 02, 2007, 02:52:19 am »
I just discovered that a third series of books by stephen donaldson regarding thomas covenant and the land and all that is beeing written.
Only one book out now, the runes of the earth, but sources claim this last chronicle will consist of 4 books.

Just ordered it and im really really curious, seeing as
: talking about the first two chronicles, spoiler.
[spoiler]Seeing as he fscking died ^^
[/spoiler]

Oh well.
If this can compare to those first two chronicles then im a happy man.

It does compare dawg... and I can't wait for the next installment in the series. Donaldson surprises me a lot.

From what i remember, i didnt really like Donaldssons books... They was too little logic in them. Granted, i was 14 or so at the time when i read some of them so i might like them better now...

I was about the same age when I first tried em. Found em too depressing and very boring.
Tried again a few years later as I had already bought the first book. And got hooked.
I found it a rare gem in the ocean of clichees and
[spoiler]The fact that the endings rarely are "good"[/spoiler]
Doesnt hurt :P

Cant wait to launch myself again into The land.. Only thing that really sucks is that now I have another series im reading that is not yet finished.
Look at whats happening with jordan :(

Yes I know theyre persons, but hey I only know em trough the books, if they ,or any good author dies before finishing the work its always a tragedy

Ok, so I bought Lord Foul's bane today....  Yesterday!  Anyway, he just had a discussion with someone very threatening..  Not sure what the books are about yet, but I'm intrigued...

Dax, who is watching Lifetime ... shocker...

A new one you say? Might have to check that out. I always found Thomas Covenant to be a really interesting character.

Lord Foul's Bane isn't a new book, though... it's the first of the series...

4 book trilogies are usually called quadrilogies...

And I'm actually waiting for him to finish the series before I start reading it. I have way too many unfinished series already...

have just asked mum to get me Lord Foul's Bane for my birthday - started reading it when I was in year 6 but it was too old for me and I didn't get far. Hopefully I have matured at least a little bit since then :)

I've just about finished the first trilogy...  I'm really enjoying it so far...  But now I want to eat the books up!

I want to finish the series so that I can read  Love in the Time of Cholera...

That's not really a spoiler, Cray, even though I haven't read the second book. Or is that in the first? Meh. Been ages since I read it. Anyway, why the title if that didn't happen? ;)

[spoiler]Considering that he is dead and part of the arch of time, I would strongly consider it a spoiler. And that is at the very end of the second book....(of the third series)[/spoiler]:P

Edit: I just reread your post.

How can the title tell that that is going to happen? I fail to get that :P

Fatal revenant?

Edit 2: Or do you mean "the last chronicles of thomas covenant" ? ^^
