The list author says: "As a fantasy enthusiast I have read numerous fantasy books, some good, some bad, some spectacular and epic, others fast paced and fun - the list is endless, yet if you are new to fantasy, or in need of new books to read, I will attempt to give you some inspiration. Many of these authors have written multiple books, make good use of the search function.
The list is not listed by a ranking, but more as I remember the books, some authors like Feist, are easily read, where others such as Steven Eriksson and George Martin are more complex, and in my opinion, ultimately more rewarding."
"Magician Apprentice and Master, is where many people start off with fantasy, and it's a good choice, in fact I greatly appreciate Feists' work, and his worldbuilding is quite good, and character development up amongst the best."
"Much has been written about the wheel of time, yes the books slow down between book 7-10, but book 11 is very very good, and Sanderson has done a phenomenal job at continuing the late Robert Jordans series, the dedication it must have taken to his series to write out the notes for ending it while lying so sick is breathtaking."
