    I'm probably not participating in this, but I just wanted to point out that New Spring isn't actually book 1 - It's a prequel. Officially, book 1 is The Eye of the World.

    I opened it up to multiple choices just in case. Vote for as many as you want. We will do a tie breaker if we need to!

    This sounds like lots of fun. Is it possible to erase my vote? I just realized that realistically, I'm not going to have time for this anytime soon. Have fun guys. <3

    I'm not voting yet since I'm not sure I'll be able to participate. But The Orphan's Tales sounds really interesting.

    Hey Enty, would you mind posting a short passage from each book so that we get a feel of the author's writing styles? Thx

    You see, the thing is, I've heard that New Spring is terrible. >.< So, in effect, by reading it, you actually MIGHT be detracting from the series.

    Unless you mean that you just want to read the whole thing, which is fine I guess.

    Isn't Robert Jordan dead? Was the prequel completed after his death...? If so, a ghost writer might have completed the prequel

    The blade itself already has a link, and good omens is well known...I know the writing style is humorous. I will see about an excerpt. I am not sure if I can find one for the last book.

    ETA: Found one!

    [opinion] I don't mind Pratchett; I think he's hilarious, but Gaiman is absolutely horrendous as a standalone author. He should stick to graphic novels. [/opinion]
