I'm stuck in the first Malazan book, btw. I think I'm just too tired and swamped with work to read anything anymore this year.

@rixx To be fair, Erikson drops you in the deep end with a cast of thousands.

@naga It's that, and that it feels terribly academic if I don't make a lot of effort to feel for the characters, because the author uses pretty distancing/neutral language? Idk, I'm 2/3 in and I think I'm only just starting to cheer a bit for some of them.
