Love GRRM, have tried to read Malazan twice now, and can't get through the first book. I've heard this is not uncommon, and have been encouraged to keep reading but... Rothsfuss is filled with the tropes of Eddings and Feist, but his writing is at a much, much higher level, it reads beautifully... and it's become obvious that he is masterful at manipulating the reader.

It comes up in TCG, for sure. I can't recall where, but I'm pretty sure it gets mentioned in other books also.

Yes, Burn comes up again.

Hi Lost! nice to see you making your way back to Tor. Hope life isn't getting you down too far. I'm with you on the Myhbe....zzzzzzzz. I appreciate the tragedy, but it is too lengthy and overwrought after awhile. Thank you for pointing out why Silverfox bugged me so much. Great build up and then......??? I haven't found her again through TtH, so unless she crops up again in the last 2 books, she does not reappear. SE must have changed his mind about the plot after creating such a unique, powerful character.?

was your creepy message from the same person? I hope they're just trolling here and are gone now. Too weird. Have a very Merry Christmas!

Hi there! You haven't missed much on the Malazan reread. We are starting with DG this week, after some Thanksgiving and snow related delays. Hope you enjoyed DoD. :)

Hi lost, I got the prologue, by changing my residence into that of a Canadian friend of mine. (since I send her DVD's through Amazon US/CA, she was in a drop down list for me to select. I could order it, download it, and then change my address back to NL. Hope this helps :)

I have a 3GL Kindle, and at least over here in the Netherlands I can download a book wireless once it is in my account at Amazon US. But I guess that's what you said ;) I had to download the software upgrade to my computer first, and copy it to the Kindle manually. As for the ToM prologue, I have the same issue as you do. It doesn't let me buy it (at least it says it isn't available). I'm going to look into it some more tonight.

That's good news :)
