Re: One Piece 662
Heh - I enjoy the Sanji "who?" joke with the posters.
@ Shrike - no worries buddy, don't think I'm trying to convince you, just trying to explain my thoughts behind it. I agree that Martin has written an easier, appealing read with no reduction in utter quality of writing - it is a very good series (I also thought 4 was pretty well written, it just annoyed me that he split the story and then I had to wait for so long for 5 which didn't really live up to expectations). I greatly enjoyed all of Jordan's work, despite his meandering ways, and feel WoT is a great fantasy series closer to the roots resurrected by Tolkien than Martin's work. If only he had boiled together books 6 through 10 into perhaps 2 novels, it probably would have aged better... and maybe be done before his death.
Just tell me if I'm getting too long winded in PoF. I'm in chapters which need a lot of explanation and setting building which can be a difficult thing. I'm hoping to rely on "be patient and all will be revealed through plot" introductions rather than "here's EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW" boredoms.
A simple souvenir of someone's kill
And like the sea
I'm constantly changing from calm to ill
Madness fills my heart and soul as if the great divide could swallow me whole
oh, how I'm breaking down
