I finished reading Deadhouse Gates and gathering ideas so I can write something.
I already wrote a lengthy part, but the end of the book made me reconsider a lot of things. While I read often that the conclusion is one of the best, those last 200 pages soured me quite a bit. I just didn’t like them.
If you follow the forums where I post you may see some of my complaints. Anyway, the book left me drained and tired. Instead the fact that I didn’t like the end gives me motivation to read the third book and dig more to see if I like where Erikson is going. I need to grasp more.
I ordered the collected edition of Bauchelain and Korbal Broach, hoping they had a few copies left, but I’m not sure if it was shipped and they are on vacation till the end of the month. I was planning to read that one as an interlude.
About those novellas Erikson confirmed that at least other six are planned.
