    I got halfway through the eighth book out of the ten in the series before life got too busy and I had to stop, but I really loved it. The first book is pretty rough going because Erikson kinda just throws you straight into a huge world with a ton of different characters, factions, cultures, history, etc., but if you get past the initial filter its relatively smooth sailing. I find that the majority of fans (me included) find the second book to be where the series really starts to click.

    Once it really gets going I'd describe it as a geopolitics simulator with a healthy dose of philosophical musing and lots of archeology/anthropology.

    Do the plotlines ever merge from previous books

    Do the plotlines ever merge from previous books

    Yes, from where I left off it seemed like the main plotlines from previous books were all either converged or starting to converge.
