2005/12/28 23:05:00 - Why me?
I've got quite a backlog of read-books that I'll be filling in over the next few days; I'm afraid…

58. Eddings, David. The Diamond Throne
59. Eddings, David. The Ruby Knight
60. Eddings, David. The Sapphire Rose
61. Eddings, David. Domes of Fire
62. Eddings, David. The Shining Ones
63. Eddings, David. The Hidden City

Bread and Butter comfort reading for me really; exactly the thing to read in the run-up to Christmas when real life is actually busy and you don't want to get too distracted by the reading matter :).

I'm not sure there's actually much to say about these; except that they're a lot better than his more-recent work. And the politics is still fun.

You mean, he got worse after these?

Thanks for the warning. I could tolerate these, as pure mind candy, but any more and I'd be throwing books around.

And the Ruby Knight has a K in it. :-)

You know, I do believe he does.

How embarrassing... :)

Oh dear. Thanks for the warning - I have one of the more recent ones (can't remember the title - it has a purple and green cover) about the place and was thinking 'Must read that, maybe they wrote themselves out of the rut they were in at the end of The Hidden City'.

I like the first Sparhawk trilogy enough to re-read it - I always much prefer books with grumpy old gits as heroes, and I thought Ehlana was actually substantially less annoying than Ce'Nedra - but I don't get along with the second trilogy at all.

Sorry, should not rain on your comfort reading! Blame headache and having to take cats to the vets this afternoon.
