18:18 - Zaphod Red, read the Dark Tower if you want an interesting main character. LeKiwi, I might one day, If I'm REALLY bored and wanna spend my time with an 800 page tome :P
18:14 - Redn1ght Why I usually avoid [insertpopularbookhere] is because of stereotypical main characters. I just want a character that isn't copy/paste Paladin archetype. (Generic Lawful Stupid teen. You know what I mean.)
18:12 - LeKiwi @Zaphod: you could always read the first book...you might like it - rehashes can be done well I suppose. @blood: what parts were rehashed?
18:06 - Zaphod Besides, there are many popular fantasy books that are just rehashes of Tolkien, even modern releases. Now Malazan is another long series that I haven't read yet, but that one I will at least check out because I heard it is fresh
18:04 - Zaphod Just because it received acclaim doesn't mean it's original or good. I'm not gonna judge it since I haven't read it, but I never will because I don't think it worth finding out since it's such a long series.
18:00 - bloodwrage I read the first of the Wheel of Time series for the first time a few months ago, and all I could think about was how much of a LOTR rehash it was.
