So long as men live, there are crimes!
No, only so long as men are deceived.
3) R. Scott Bakker sure does love writing rape scenes.

Dat banner springs immediately to mind.
Also, the Sranc gangrape at the end of Warrior-Prophet...Y, R. Scott. Y u do dis.
I'm not sure what you're referring to. Which book is that in?
I'm not sure what you're referring to. Which book is that in?I forget off the top of my head, but Conphas really likes this one banner. Bakker makes a point to mention the depth of his affections for it.
Also, every single passage about Xerius getting with his mom.
If you're gonna be a fucked up douche, you might as well go all the way with it.
The end of the slog just revealed that Ishual is in ruins, and Achamian murdered a Nonman King and a band of men for absolutely nothing.
The new side project, what I turn to when I burn out on The Unholy Consult, will be a selection of stories and vignettes call Atrocity Tales, concentrating on events from the founding of the Consult to the rise of the Scarlet Spires during the Scholastic Wars. IÃ¢Â€Â™ll be posting them online as I go, soliciting feedback, and hopefully providing newcomers a less daunting way to climb into the series. Something to take the density out of The Darkness That Comes Before. Something easier to recommend.
Half the words are some made-up unpronounceable fuck-knows-what! That's how you introduce the reader?
Furthermore, I didn't feel like the magic system was well explained.
I can tell you right now that the reason you didn't like the books is because you missed at least half of what was going on.
Finally, the ending of The Thousandfold Thought was a big wet fart. Achamian was carried away by a horrible demon controlled by Iyokus and then... woke up in a fisherman's hut with a cut on his leg? Kellhus' has a showdown with his father that leads to... poking him with a knife and teleporting away? Cnaiur (Cnaiur!) meets Moenghus and does some homoerotic nonsense (my wife is in book 2 and has been saying "My god, this author is so fucking gay!" since book 1... looking forward to that I told you so.) and then he uh... well it's been 4 hours since I finished the book and I already forget, which says a lot about it.
I too thought the end of The Thousandfold Thought was very weak,
