oh! have you read any other epic fantasy series otherwise? what kind of genres do you enjoy the most?

I have not read a ton of epic fantasy, sadly, other than the LotR (as well as other works of Tolkien). I find that in fantasy, my preferences lie more with the worlds like Terry Pratchett's Discworld and LeGuin's Earthsea rather than the huge stories with dozens of main characters and thick political plots.

Outside of fantasy, lately I've been enjoying some autobiographies (or are they considered fiction?) of Knausgärd and Ferrante. Saw the latest translated Knausgärd book ("Some Rain Must Fall", I believe), in a bookshop near me a couple of days back, and I'll pick it up as soon as I finish Book 4 of Min Kamp.

What about you?
