Hi there I am super duper new to everything Steven Erikson and have only read the prologue and the first 3 pages of chapter one. I love it so far, very different than Brandon Sanderson which is my favourite author atm. But I feel very lost at the same time. I find my self stopping to process some stuff I read to try and fully understand it. I picked up Gardens of the moon first tor edition; june 2004 which is sweet becuse its my favourite looking edition. Anyways I'm probably going to reread the prologue again cause I feel like I'm missing stuff.

Missing stuff is part of the joy of reading this series. Don't obsess over it.

Reading the series will be one of the best mental rides of your life.
