I started reading Malazan again. About 25% into GoTM and I'm enjoying it so so much. It's about 8, maybe 9 years since I read it last, and thanks to my truly shocking memory I can't remember too many of the intricacies of the story BUT with the added advantage of remembering most of the characters and the general outline of the plot. There's references to characters who I know that will show up at a later time in the series, which is great, and I haven't minded one bit being dropped into the midst of the story, which is often a criticism of the book. I'm well and truly hooked .. again!!
