Haha, "switch to novellas to entice smaller buys". Formula doesn't quite fit when the novellas are twice the price of a full sized novel.

Paying twice as much, for half as much.

balls! I figured they were less...I must confess there's a lot of ways to get these books and it wasn't the prices that drove me away, but the content.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

They're part of GW, so probably not

And this probably acts as it's own answer to the first bit

Really?

Because a comment like that definitely doesn't make you sound/look as bad or worse.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

People are explaining their reasons for leaving the series, why they think others are leaving the series, what they think the problem(s) is, or giving an opinion about the matter. Thats generally how threads go; if you don't like this thread then why are you even bothering to comment in it?

What we don't need are people pulling threads off topic. That's why intentional derailing of threads is a rule breaking offense. Opinion threads like this don't break any rules and have every reason to exist as any other thread. So would you kindly take your off topic posts somewhere else before modhammers are deployed? Thank you.

I think this graphic helps show why the series has gotten so off-putting to follow for some people in the last few years.

Well done to whoever made that. Shows clearly the Heresy message has been lost due to over complication of it's delivery to fans.
