Re: Does anybody recommend Donaldson?

In my case, I simply don't believe in heroes of the typical fantasy mould and I strongly believe it is a dis-service to all to portray constantly unlikely creatures like Tolkien's Aragorn in a world where, all to often, the good-hearted may yet wind up like Boromir, to cite another Tolkien character. All our heroes have feet of clay. Covenant is a man of clay who may well become a hero despite himself. Certainly far more engaging for me.
