He did get crazy with the middle books. I liked faith of the fallen it was kind of atlas shrugged type book. and the last two are good. He wrapped it up good. So it is worth it to me to suffer thru some of those books in the middle or even just get some cliff notes version b/c not too much during those books really makes that much of a difference on the last few books. Just some key players and all.
Also more of a fantasy-- out of space series is The saga of the seven suns. by kevin anderson. It is a lot easier to read then the sword of truth series. They are a fun read. I recently order the last two books that came out of that series to read.
