    1. I started this book and found Thomas Covenant was himself, as we knew him in the first series woe is me Life is unfair to me , all is lost, there is no hope So I followed his example.I saved myself Not again will I suffer through Thomas Covenant s eternal, endless self flagellation and self pity I have traveled as far as I care to with the Unbeliever Got through this one or possibly suffered through this one am I starting to sound like Thomas Covenant and went no farther My advice RUN Run far an [...]


    2. I just can t believe I liked this so much as a teen I gave this 4 stars originally, based on my recollection of my impressions from 25 years ago I remember devouring these stories, and the images and ideas of a land being under the grip of a climate changing blood curse were so impressive to me that I carried them with me throughout my life That was the reason I was so excited when I came across this book in someone s give away pile I wanted to be impressed again and immerse myself in this fanta [...]


    3. I was wrong As long as you have some idea of what s happening to you, real or unreal doesn t matter You have to stand up for what you care about if you don t, you lose control of who you are In this book, Covenant is transported once to the Land, to find that 4,000 years have passed and Lord Foul holds the Earth in his grasp Alongside Linden Avery, a doctor from his world, he struggles to find some semblance of the world he once knew and set things right.This is the first book in the second Tho [...]


    4. I have an odd relationship with this series I read the first trilogy at the end of the 90s and really loved it Now, so many years and changes later, I decided to jump into the second trilogy I plan on finishing the series, but I m not in a hurry this is both a result of Donaldson s daunting vocabulary and his lumbering narrative style Actually, I wouldn t say it is his narrative style that is drawn out and plodding, but his character Thomas Covenant I can t stand Covenant He is the center of the [...]


    5. Read in the depths of time not quite four thousand years ago, though As I wrote in my brief notes about the 3rd book of the original trilogy, when Donaldson decided to continue writing about the Land and Thomas Covenant, he and his publisher were very upfront about it The Second Chronicles bit doesn t try to slip one by you As for the book, at first it was a surprise to see the deterioration of both the protagonist and the Land The tone of this book indeed all of the 2nd trilogy is a bit faster [...]


    6. Adore, always have I read this series when in high school Mostly because my brother told my mom about it while I was listening, and when I said I was going to read it, he told me it was way above my head and even he had to keep a dictionary nearby to understand the vocabulary I fell in love with the characters, and spent many a week eating up this series like dark chocolate brownies with homemade fudge buttercream icing I don t know that I ve ever loved characters as much, since This set the bar [...]


    7. This is the first book of the 2nd trilogy If you could only read one of the books of the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, I would suggest this one In the first trilogy, Covenant is at his most dispicable This series takes place 10 years after his last ordeal, and he has changed quite a bit So has the land itself, 4000 years have passed here, and the world is drastically different I would say the soul of the Thomas Covenant series is the land itself It is alive, and the people who serve it are both [...]


    8. More than anything that has gone before, the fourth installment of Donaldson s psycho fantasy can be read and enjoyed in two ways a dark, violent fantasy adventure or the frightening dreams of a man filled with guilt and illness trying to work through his nightmares with heroic effort Covenant, by now, has accepted the Land as real in so far that he loves and cares for it and wants to save it Set thousands of years after his showdown with alter ego Lord Foul, Covenant returns to find all that he [...]


    9. I read the first and second trilogies back in the 80s and reread them when I recently discovered yet a third trilogy at the library The Wounded Land is the first entry of the Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant trilogy In the series, a leper, Thomas Covenant, is magically transported to The Land on several occasions to save it from the evil Lord Foul Covenant s wedding ring is made of white gold, which doesn t exist in the Land, and so holds supreme magical powerpower that could save the Land o [...]


    10. Yet again, a review of the whole trilogy rather than each individual book No spoilers of the story variety The gist, for those who want to skip the lengthy review these three books are action packed and immediately engaging than the previous trilogy, and Donaldson continued to hold true to the strengths that made the first novels a pleasure to read.This trilogy was the better written, for me More action packed, events driven and easier to get into The horrors being wrought on the Land are a te [...]


    11. I ve read thousands of books in English and Spanish and I put this book down after reading all but 80 pages and I refuse to pick it up again Why The self loathing that the characters express got old fast In the first trilogy, I understand it Main character has a sickness that stains his soul, causing him to feel unworthy, causing him to deny feelings Then, when he is transported to an alternate reality where his feelings overwhelm him he acts like a complete SOB.But to continue such loathing for [...]


    12. Great book, probably the most compelling so far out of these first 4 books While the main character still struggles with the fear of his power and the necessity of using it, he seems to be coming to terms with it WOUNDED LAND does a good job of tying in with the events in the previous books, and keeping the reader s interest in where it s all leading.


    13. The second chronicles of Thomas Covenent, book one This continuation of the beautifully magical tale returns Thomas Covenent to The Land but it s been harshly altered Still a GREAT story and writing that always VASTLY expands your vocabulary


    14. What a change from the ending of last trilogy Feel such a lost for the Land But keeps you interested in the story, great continuation of the Chronicles.


    15. The Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant is an entirely worthy successor to the first trilogy It seems somewhat surprising that it was written at all, though it turns out to be a pleasant and gratifying surprise.As I understand it, Donaldson never intended to write a follow up series about Thomas Covenant The story stood complete However, his publisher very much wanted Covenant from Donaldson After reading the Second Chronicles, I can vaguely imagine what must have happened in Donaldson s mind [...]


    16. I ve become strangely attracted to this series Fine, it seemingly started as another Tolkien rip off with magic rings, faux Mordor Mount Thunder bleh , vargs, a wannabe Sauron with his hordes of ugly monsters and other tosh, but it soon took its own path And it didn t turn out bad I m too busy to write a novel length review, but here are some points I enjoy 1 The main character is an anti hero This makes the plot awesomely unpredictable, as the reader cannot be certain whether he ll mess it all [...]


    17. For those who read my reviews, I am re using the same review for each of the Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant I will include thoughts on all three novels in the one review Cheers People say, all the time, how the second installment in a trilogy is usually the best or the darkest of the three Donaldson did the darker bit in The Illearth War Book 2 of the first Chronicles But his second trilogy managed the same thing Everything that was awesome about The Land in the first trilogy is corrupted [...]


    18. Donaldson gives us a whole new Land with this second trilogy Juxtaposed against the Land as we knew it in the first trilogy, this is a vile place Blood is shed to commit even small acts of survival The weak are killed and bled so that their friends and neighbors can survive Hostages are taken to Revelstone once an icon of love of earthlore to be bled to feed the Sunbane.While Donaldson wrote from a few points of view in the first trilogy, it was clear that Covenant was the focal point of the sto [...]


    19. Having enjoyed the first Chronicles of Thomas Covenant so much I could not resist diving straight into the second Within a few pages you soon discover that this chronicles has been written as single story instead of three connected ones How so Well, this book does not come to a satisfying conclusion as all three previous did There is a significant event near to the end of the book but it is not conclusive no closure.Thomas Covenant is still rages against himself while still learning to control h [...]


    20. Went back and forth on whether to give three or four stars Portions of the book did lag and I skimmed sections which I rarely do without feeling as though I lost out on the story Character of Vain did not add much to the story but I will give Donaldson a chance to further develop that particular story line in future books If not this would be a significant flaw in the story I do appreciate that Donaldson did not take the easy way out and did transform the culture of the Land with a viable explan [...]


    21. I was fully expecting to give this book less then 5 stars when I re read it this time I so thoroughly enjoyed the first series and my memory of the second series weighed on me However, despite this book being significantly different from the first three, I enjoyed it all the same The plight of the land, the corruption of beauty, the twisting of lies and truth, have direct analogies to me of real life today The introduction of another character Linden from our world and two new characters from th [...]


    22. This second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever is as good as the first Donaldson is able to successfully resurrect Lord Foul the Despiser, the Three Ravers, and a conflict actually intense than the one he created the first time Thomas Covenant has lived ten years longer with his leprosy, and has been able to find success as a writer He meets Linden Avery, a doctor, and this time, when Covenant is called back to the Land, she accompanies him, and becomes as much a protagonist as Covena [...]


    23. I would actually give this a 3.5 But since Good Reads can only give whole numbers, why not, let s give it a 4 star rating.Quite honestly though, I think I enjoyed this book the most out of the rest of the series Donaldson returns us to the Land, and it s all wrong Great great way to start us out with a new character And I must say, I like Linden so much better than Hile Troy, who was a waste of a character I still give it a low rating because it still is a chore to read, like all of Thomas Coven [...]


    24. As I got into this one something that caused me to raise my eyebrows a bit in the previous one got to me why was it necessary for Mr Donaldson to use such an unnecessarily latinate vocabulary I started to keep track of the particularly unusual words after I found three oddities in two succeeding pages If I could deduce a meaning from the context or break down the sections to analyze reasonably easily I didn t note it but hear are a few examples of ones with which I had difficulty Rats, I ve misl [...]


    25. Una prima parte legata alla nostalgia del protagonista, di come il mondo lasciato da quattromila anni la Landa sia cambiato, poi il vivo della storia Il sangue.La magia spesso limitata nella morale dell incredulo, che assume il ruolo della scelta legata agli sbagli di un passato che lo perseguita, ma di cui appare chiaro sapr liberarsi L azione rapida, ma frenata spesso dalle riflessioni che non guasta secondo me sulle conseguenze I personaggi sono definiti per servire il ruolo dell incredulo, n [...]


    26. Most books with this rating I never finish and so don t make this list This one I probably started speed reading to get it over with Average Wasn t terrible, but not a lot to recommend it Probably skimmed parts of it Decent A few good ideas, well written passages, interesting characters, or the like Good This one had parts that inspired me, impressed me, made me laugh out loud, made me think it got positive reactions and most of the rest of it was pretty decent too Amazing This is the best I ve [...]


    27. It is 10 years after The First Chronicles and Thomas Covenant has returned to the Land It has been 4,000 years by the Land s reckoning, and much has changed The land is plagued by the Sunbane, a corruption of the sun which causes either rainstorms, desertification, putrefaction or unrestrained fertility for days at a time Summoned with Covenantt to the Land is Linden Avery a doctor in our world with a troubled past The Wounded Land is the first book of The Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant th [...]


    28. Book 4 or Book 1 of Series 2 of Thomas CovenantWhile it can be read without reading the first trilogy, I wouldn t recommend it This book represents a distinct change of pace from the first trilogy Thomas Covenant is no longer struggling with belief, no longer impotent and, possibly most importantly, no longer alone Keeping with the time dilation of the first books, a significant time has passed and the land has changed drastically By rearranging the pieces so, Donaldson is able to change the ton [...]


    29. Return to the Land marked amazing experience Donaldson moved from the Tolkien lookalike and let himself use all of the possibilities open by first trilogy and to the full extent, too Here is Covenant, but in doubt whether he is a main protagonist, powerful than before, yet even sick and doubtful of using that power Yet the most memorable thing is Land itself the shock of returning to the once beautiful and peaceful Land, in accordance with Earthpower, now ravaged beyond belief, twisted and alm [...]


    30. The Wounded Land , in taking us back to The Land millennia after our last visit, brilliantly makes us experience the same loss that Covenant does when he returns It seamlessly continues the story, although the second trilogy was not something Donaldson ever planned to write.It s always a test for me of how much I come to care for the characters in any fictional work, and Donaldson does a marvelous job of developing empathy for characters that are flawed, incomplete, and or incapacitated by their [...]
