I figure I'll definitely like them, but I really need a stand-alone novel right now.
I've narrowed it down to The Stand and The Talisman. Which one should I get? They both seem really good and I've read nothing but good reviews on them.
My advice would be to start with the first three books. See how you feel after that.
Hi, I've been looking into Earthsea. I see that there are about 5 novels and 7 short stories. Never been a fan of reading short stories, so before I start reading the novels I'm wondering if any of the short stories is crucial to the series or are the novels themselves enough to fully understand the series?
