it was amazing

The Covenant set of series is a bit of a conundrum.

Pros: Vivid fantasy land with wondrous scenery and (usually) rich, compelling story.

Cons: The protagonists are hard to care about. Thomas Covenant is crazed most of the time and Linden Avery, well, let's just say she needs to be slapped upside the head. Donaldson tends use too many $10 words that throw the reader out of the story. He also tends to beat us over the head with emotion. Okay, we get that Linden is upset. We don't really need to wallow in it for 3 pages.

That being said, the first two series are well worth reading.
