I get that, and it's probably I dont read in a very structured way. I will often skip bits. Donaldson is dark but he doesn't offend my sensibilities in the way say Heinlein does. His fascism and tales of incest just piss me off.I read a lot of his books because he can write but no more.I agree. Donaldson is very engaging and pulls you along the the storyline, often at speed. It is his harrowing themes of perversion in some series that I find exhausting. Tolkien tells a great tale, but often gets lost painting out the scene, the set piece battle or contextual history. Ok if you like the detail.
