The Chronicles Of Narnia Box Set by C. S. Lewis
This is a nice-looking edition, but it annoys me that they're not sequenced in the order they were published but rather in the story's chronological order, which is inane, imo. Why not number them in the order C.S. Lewis chose to write them?
A Clash of Kings: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book Two by George R.R. Martin
5.0 out of 5 stars Robert who?, April 12 2002
Even though it seems hardly necessary at this point, I feel the need to extoll George R. R. Martin's work thus far.
To be sure, these books are long, longer even than many of the Wheel of Time books. The first book is about 850 pages and this second installment 100 pages longer still. But unlike Robert Jordan's books, things actually move along. There are no dangling plotlines and very little filler. Yes, there is a lot of extraneous detail, such as what's for dinner and what kind of sex certain characters are having, but not nearly as much as in the Wheel of Time.

Winter's Heart: Book Nine of 'The Wheel of Time' by Robert Jordan
OK, so all Robert Jordan fans love the WOT series and want another nine books. All fine and good, but how about new readers? Would a new reader interested in reading Jordan's fantasy be so eager whe s/he finds it nine books and counting? People are put off from reading The Lord of the Rings because of its length and that's a mere 1,000 pages or so. WOT is what, 7,000??? And still no major developments judging from what I've been reading from these posts. To judge any better I'd have to read the book itself. No thanks.
