Do you have to read these books in order, or could it make sense to read Saints first?

Ian Young You should try to read them in order. Saints would be perfectly comprehensible if read first, but there's some beautiful interplay between the two, and the meta-narrative definitely flows best if they are read in order.
Val While I've not read Saints yet, I don't see any way in which reading them out of order would be good or even make sense. It's very obviously a story told in chronological order, following the same characters throughout. :/
Noah L. Browning no you don´t have to read these books in order but if you read saints before you boxers you will dislike some things that are in saints but not in boxers
