Jolly good! I worked mostly with Anglo-Saxon, Norse Sagas, the Eddas, Old French Arthurian romances (and 'international' Arthurian literature as a whole), Middle High German heroics, and a broad survey of continental folklore. I started out in history, with attention to arms and armour, but eventually wandered off into the forest of myth, legend, and romance.
I don't want to buy books when my bookshelf is literally full as it is.
Could barely fit everything after my latest purchase even though it was just one book. I've got books shelved "normally", I've got other books stacked on top of those, and yet more books stacked in front of the properly shelved ones.
I have a huge backlog on books because I haven't been in the mood for reading for a while, nor do I have had the time. But when I open one again, it'll be either Sartre's La Nausée or Nietzche's Thus Spoke Zarathustra (because they are both pretty short... not diving in the deep end right away after a long pause) that I nabbed from a fleemarket for a couple of euros.
Sanderson did a smash-up job finishing it. I read a long piece about his experience writing it. And, man, respect is definitely due to that guy for both saying, "Yes," to the project and seeing it through with quality.
Towards the very end, I feel like there's definitely something missing. More in the presentation than in the actual content. Obviously, he's trying to remain as close to Jordan's intent as he can (based on [scattered and conflicting] notes), but I can just tell that Jordan had a way of making it hit like a million pounds. (Sanderson's version only hits like 750,000 pounds. )
After Tolkien, it's my all-time favorite fantasy piece. The entire story is genius, and if the human race does not immortalize this work, I will never speak to them again.
I remember liking the story and characters quite a bit (apart from the boring parts in the middle), but I haven't properly read fantasy in about 20 years. I had the Wheel of Time there and Eddings' Belgarion and Sparhawk series' (two of both), and King's Dark Tower later on but that's about it.
Here's a great little book I happened on:
"Trail of Lightning" by Rebecca Roanhorse (Indigenous American Author)
"Unhappy Future" based on climate disaster and Dine' (Navajo) mythology suddenly becoming very real again. Absolutely priceless portrayal of Coyote the Trickster!
I've already pre-ordered the next book in the trilogy.
Past that, right now I'm just bungling through a medieval/"dark" ages/late Roman republic binge of whatever decent novels our library offers in digital format.
Oh, of course there's "The Fall of Gondolin". I can't ever get enough Tolkien!
Years ago I was reading books everywhere and everything. But lets be honest it was before Netflix and phone games (at least for me). And that's my problem, do you have any idea how to go back to reading? I would love to read again The Witcher, and few otheres books but how to do that?
