I've been writing too much about science on this blog lately. I've decided that what I need is to do some easy reading. Where, when I write reviews, I can criticize plot, story structure, writing style, etc., instead of actually thinking too much.
I know these three volumes will endlessly frustrate me, but at least not for the same reasons as some of the other books I've been reading lately. (To Mark Charan Newton's credit, at least his books mostly made me think about science, about ideas -- not about boring detail, dialect, and poor command of the English language.) Two of these books are part of what I would call the worst fantasy series. And Karen Miller might not have made the list, in that post, but, well, I'll save the discussion of her books for the review of The Reluctant Mage.
