This is my favorite in the DT series. I really love the others, but Waste Lands is by FAR the most "alive" for me. The entire novel simply thrums with energy. Every scene is drawn so clearly in my mind. It's like a favorite album - you know every word, chord, and inflection, but they still draw emotion and feeling from you, every time.

Preference is such an individual thing, but I just cannot fathom how so many list The Waste Lands as their least favorite!

As I have said here before, The Wastelands is my favorite in the series. Next would be Wolves.

Lund is in Sweden

(it's on another level of the Tower) - when you get there, Kurben is there to greet you!)
Its an university town. An old one, founded in the late 15,th century when it was connected to an old franciskan monastery. All that changed with the protestant reforms during the next century. My father and mother both got their education there and met there. Probably the town where i was created. charming little town.

Wow - that's quite a coincidence - so how are you keeping these days? I hope the gout has resolved or is at least getting better? :okay:

This book is a hell of a ride. I think this one is my second favorite. I like IV the best (ask everyone on this site and you will find each volume is a favorite of someone).

The gout has went away. And i'm very glad about it. Got a pill that i'm taking daily that is supposed to keep further attacks away from me.
Good to know that if I ever get it there is a simple pill one can take!

I have had the odd twinge or pain in my big toe from time to time but it always goes away on its own.
