Read full description of the books:
Run...run fast and far don't get caught in this book! I had to finish the first trilogy (for some reason) once I started, and I was miserable! I picked up the first book in the second trilogy and it was again "Oh woe is me. My life is awful, I dare not believe anything good. I will make everyone around me miserable. I will bemoan my fate constantly no matter what...." I threw it away. A friend recommended another completely different series of books by Mr. Donaldson and said "oh no it's not like that." I tried it. A female protagonist starts the first book with "Oh woe is me. I'm so miserable. Life is awful. I will spread my misery..." I flung it from me and now avoid this writer like the plague.
Thomas Covenant is the world's most miserable, gloomy, wretched, irritating, hateful, abhorrent, despicable, contemptible, disheartening, forlorn, self pitying excuse for a (make believe) human being it's ever been my misfortune to read about. (view spoiler)[ When he ends up raping the one woman willing to help him so as to prove none of this is real (hide spoiler)] I was pretty much done with him. I read this trilogy with a group of friends so finished them. I'm more careful about what I commit to in group reads now.
Do you get the idea? I HATE these books. if you don't, well good for you. But you need a good, really good attitude to read this tomb errr, I mean tome, consisting of Thomas Covenant's self centered misery.
Maybe you could consider a therapist?????
I reviewed this a while back, but I want to update it. I want to include a quote from Dorothy Parker I've used before:
"This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force."

Read information about the authorStephen Reeder Donaldson is an American fantasy, science fiction, and mystery novelist; in the United Kingdom he is usually called "Stephen Donaldson" (without the "R"). He has also written non-fiction under the pen name Reed Stephens.
EARLY LIFE AND EDUCATION:
Stephen R. Donaldson was born May 13, 1947 in Cleveland, Ohio. His father, James, was a medical missionary and his mother, Ruth, a prosthetist (a person skilled in making or fitting prosthetic devices). Donaldson spent the years between the ages of 3 and 16 living in India, where his father was working as an orthopaedic surgeon. Donaldson earned his bachelor's degree from The College of Wooster and master's degree from Kent State University.
Donaldson's work is heavily influenced by other fantasy authors such as J.R.R. Tolkien, Roger Zelazny, Joseph Conrad, Henry James, and William Faulkner. The writers he most admires are Patricia A. McKillip, Steven Erikson, and Tim Powers.
It is believed that a speech his father made on leprosy (whilst working with lepers in India) led to Donaldson's creation of Thomas Covenant, the anti-hero of his most famous work (Thomas Covenant). The first book in that series, Lord Foul's Bane, received 47 rejections before a publisher agreed to publish it.
Stephen Donaldson came to prominence in 1977 with the The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, which is centred around a leper shunned by society and his trials and tribulations as his destiny unfolds. These books established Donaldson as one of the most important figures in modern fantasy fiction.
He currently resides in New Mexico.
