"...For years, I've had a policy not to read trilogies.
Sure, there have been exceptions: like Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker and Dirk Gently books, John Varley's Titan, Dan Simmons Hyperion or, even, J.K. Rowling's Potter series. Technically, these aren't all trilogies, but I'm using the word in such a way as to imply a series of books that tell one story to its completion and that story can't be really be read in a different order without consequence".
Да уж. Трилогия Р.Джордана "Колесо Времени"... "Вот тебе и слава", как говорил Шалтай-Болтай.
