    I love the Dark Tower series, so that's pretty neat.

    I couldn't get through the Silmarillion, it's written more like a myth than a story and that's a bad thing to me. I don't want to have to study names of gods that may or may not be referenced more than once.

      Well on your side, the Silmarillion is hard reading, props for giving it a go. I always read 1-3 on the Dark Tower then stop and get caught up in other things. I own all of them but have never picked up 4

        4 is an interesting one, it gives a look into Roland as a younger man and it shows a lot more of the world they live in. It's worth a go, I'd say.

              I remembered, Wastelands was put on hold for The Devil's Armor by John Marco. That explains that.

              I was not aware of this. Supposedly it's the first actual story set in Middle Earth? That sounds exciting. Hopefully they still have copies at B&N when I get off of work.

                  I did not pay that much attention to it the first time I heard some rumours about it, as I was focused and hyped about the upcoming TV series based on Tolkiens work(5 seasons confirmed, most money ever for TV series budget, 5 seasons confirmed)

                  I hope it's good and certainly, I am interested.

                      Yo, for a literal billion dollar budget, that would legit be the biggest flop in television history if it gets low reviews

                      I'm hoping that's not the case, though. I'm hype as fuck

                        Listening to the Hereticus Audiobook. After that, I will probably move on to the Stormlight Archive. heard good things about it, and I really liked the authors Mistborn series. Either that, or give Percy Jackson a revisit.

                          sjw, gender diversity and other political bullshit might ruin it, I hope that is not going to be the case.
