message 1: by Wastrel (new)

Wastrel I'll have to vote Hobb, since getting people to read Hobb is practically a moral imperative, but the Donaldson is interesting as well, and historically significant in the genre. It may even be the better book, since I think Hobb take a while to hit her stride and her later books are all better. On the other hand, AA is definitely the more accessible and readable of the two.

Kelly Flanagan I'd prefer Hobb as well. Besides being a fan of her work I tend towards shorter series. The Donaldson is a long series I really don't want to get sucked into reading.

Wastrel Actually, going by page count, the two books are the same length, and the Hobb trilogy is about a third longer than the Donaldson. Hobb's total sequence is also probably longer.

Kelly Flanagan Sorry got the Donaldson trilogy mixed up with another one. Thought it was like 14 books long. oh the full series of Thomas is 10 books. thought it was the first in that.

Wastrel It's sort of like Hobb, actually - a series of series forming a single sequence. In both cases, the first trilogy can be read alone, but then there are sequel trilogies.
