OK, just out of curiosity, is there anyone who has tried/actually read this series? I only ask because it's on my 'List of things I would not like to be beaten with during torture' due to the fact that it is twelve books long with an average of 800 pages per book. I got up to book four then stopped for a while, then when I came back to it I had forgotten who everyone was and had to start again. Got up to book four that time too, then the same thing happened except this time I couldn't be bothered restarting it. So yeah. Let me know how far you've gone with this behemoth, and for anyone who has actually finished it I was wondering if it's worth actually reading all of them?
