WhiteElk, reply 42A Memory of Light is nearly here (01/08/13)! i'd pre-ordered months ago. Over twenty years following this story. Will conclude with over 4 million words written. As spoken, that's about 420 hours of audio-tape. Epic. Is nearly here!
Oh yeah, will be taking the day off work to finish that thing... feel like a kid who's told he's going to the candy store!
Indeed! ...but "the day"?!? You gonna read that fat tome (~360,000 words) in a day!?!
It's one of the biggest. i'm gonna savor this! Is tough to slow it down cuz each new book i want to blaze through, and this final one will press me even more. But i'll be savoring it over weeks as best i can. The big prologue is online, but i'm even saving that for the book.
If i hadn't just reread them all last winter, i'd be doing it again before Memory arrives. Lost count of how many times i've reread these books. i do still have A New Spring (prequel) yet unread, got it with the pre-order. Am undecided if i'll read it before or after. Am working on a sci-fi trilogy now (The Night's Dawn trilogy by Peter Hamilton). And have a friends book she's anxious for me to read.
i'm excited about this! So close now!! What a series!!
