It seems that Fantasy books like Jordan's and Martin's take on a life of their own and get so overlong. The last Jordan book I read was some years ago and it took place in like a day, and they practically walked the entire time. And the men were constantly portrayed as whining wimps and the women as screaming banshees. I am all for the author making money, but damn do they drag it out, like they don't know how or want to end it, and then it becomes a chore to read.
I am slowly slogging through Book 4 of Martin and just stopped because nothing
I read the Eddings books in High School and they were to the point and really good. Not sure if they'd hold up now.
