This appears to be the year of endings for me. First WoT, and now it looks pretty certain that I'll get to read the final book of the Last Chronicles of Thomas Covenant too. SRD handed in the third draft of the book earlier this week, and an October release date has been announced by the publisher. I read the first chronicles in my early teens, the second chronicles in college, and I've going through the last series as soon as each installment has hit the shelves. It's been about 30 years since the first trip to the Land. Time really flies...

I read the first series as a teen too and they had a profound impact on me at the time. So dark and yet so full of love of life at the same time. I read the second series later and wasn't as impressed. You'll have to let me know if the third series is worth a shot.

I also read the first Chronicles as a teen...in fact, they were the second fantasy series I ever read, after Shannara. Haven't read the Last Chronicles yet, but mayhap I should!

I'll definitely let you know what I think of the end. I think I'm going to need to reread the other books in the Last Chronicles. Ideally I should read the first and second series too, but I'm not sure I can stand that much misery this summer. :-)
