Today’s work read was the first in what I think will be an awesome fantasy series. So of course I’m disappointed that I’m going to have to wait who-knows-how-long for the next one, and the next one, and however many more there might be.
I don’t have a hard and fast rule about reading series. Mostly, however, I prefer to wait until I know that things are completed and done. I have heard all the Robert Jordan/Wheel of Time horror stories, and I’m glad I never started. I really hope George RR Martin keeps his cholesterol down so he can finish Song of Ice and Fire, though I don’t regret having started them already.
Trilogy readers, what’s your opinion on things? How do you handle it when a favorite author starts a new series?
