    no, the first 50 or so were kinda meh too haha, but he hit his stride and for a long time it was really interesting. He has a big following of people who like his stuff, so what he's doing makes him good money no doubt, can't blame him for keeping at what brings in the cash. It just lacks the passion it used to have, it's hard to pinpoint exactly what's wrong with it now.

    It's just shifted away from my taste and into something more...generic than it once was. I don't resent the direction, I just lament what's gone, ya know?

    The entire Wheel of Time series. A month in and I'm a good ways through Lord of Chaos.

    man I would love to be reading Wheel of Time for the first time. I envy you man.

    Lord of Chaos has one of my favorite scenes of the entire series in it. Let me know what you think when you finish the book!

    Thus why I feel disappointed rather than ripped off.

    The quality drops off sharply after around the 600th strip. After that the writer falls more often into pandering to his fans, rehashing jokes because they were previously successful, obsessing over inanity, or pointing out how "quirky" he is. There are still good ones out there, but it's about 1 in every 30 after you hit 600. Or maybe it's 700ish. I don't remember the exact mark, but it was several years ago that it ceased to hold my interest and instead I just feel disappointed that something once great has fallen to such painful mediocrity.

    Personally, I don't think he ever intended the Silmarillion to be published. It's basically him playing with a world he'd invented.
    Note that it's published under the name Christopher Tolkien - John's son.

    The Silmarillion (along with the Books of Lost Tales and the History of Middle Earth) - are all compilations of his father's notes. That's why in some places you have a single page on an entire culture, other places you get what amounts to Shelob->Ungoliant->Melkor and others you get these big elaborate histories about the Silmarils and Ungoliant's hunger for them. It's why it's written like you're reading someone's notes - you are.

    "30 page love story about Beren and Luthien" followed by "1 page summary of Sauron's reason for joining Morgoth".

    Ruby's lack of curly braces scare me.

    Try VB.net, you have to remember to "End" everything.
