I like Dune more too GoT was just not my style it took me 4 tries to finish book 1, and i am kinda proud that i called the ending 3.
If i want dark ill go Black company or the
Malazan Book of the Fallen which i really really like even as weird as it gets at times.
LOVE the first 3 Black Company books Some of my favorites but after 7 I stopped because I wasn't enjoying it anymore. Malazan was too hard for me but I'm going to try again this year.

I Started with Deadhouse gates, maybe that made it easier as that was more compelling story than the siege in gardens of the moon. It is a hard set fits time i have read a set that spanned epochs.
quoting wiki "The series is not told in a linear fashion. Instead, several storylines progress simultaneously, with the individual novels moving backwards and forwards between them. As the series progresses, links between these storylines become more readily apparent."

The first 3 black company books are terrific. They likely only charted out the first 3 and had to really work to come up with the next ones.

The Belgariad is another set i have crazy rereads on.

Pern
Dragon lance.( first set ofc)
Drizit
Sanderson is getting mad rereads. Stormlight and the mistborn sets mostly.
As is Dresden that whole set is over 5 now.

That's what I'm doing next time is starting right with Deadhouse and Skipping Gardens.
I feel like I've passed on the Belgariad and Drizzt age wise.
Tried Dresden, hated it.
Read 2 mistborn books and 2 Stormlight books. I'm pretty on the fence about Sanderson in general, I'm not sure if I'm going to continue with Stormlight but I probably will finish the first Mistborn trilogy.

Yep ya can go back to Gardens to fill in the plot line questions. Its funny i complained about gunslinger feeling like Tarantino on crack, but Malazan is also very ping pong timeline wise to the point that from one book to another was hundreds of millennia backwards. I think deadhouse is the key to getting invested in the world.

I really love the thought Sanderson puts into the magic systems.

That's the main reason I don't like Sanderson. Magic is too thought out for me and characters take a back seat to Magic.

I think in more and more books the magic is a character, it is a part of the world and in the fabric of the story.
How its controlled shaped and used impacts events.
Gandalf could wave his hands and we were impressed.
Now many want more, role playing games have made readers who understand systems and want detail.
He may go too far like Jordan did with his outfit descriptions, but as one of those roleplayers i love being able to conceptualize why things work.

Does anyone have any links to translated novels online? I'm broke but I want a new book to read :yolk:
If anyone has any, any genre, that would be great.

No I don't think they had an issue with the story but they kept pointing out the weird ways the writer described things and I don't think I could take the series seriously as a result.

Not a novel, but Rejected Princesses is something I highly recommend. It’s basically short illustrated biographies of badass women throughout history. It’s also pretty diverse!
The website has a lot of entries but there are two books available
