For any book/audiobook lovers the king of Space Opera's is definitely Peter F. Hamilton.

The Great North Road is a great stand-alone book to get into his writing and The Commonwealth Saga is really good as well.

But his Magnus Opus is definitely The Nights Dawn Trilogy. 3 of the best Sci-Fi books I've ever listened too and each one clocks in at over 40 hours each!

I couldn't get past the first 10 minutes of that Shannara show. Absolutely awful. I'm hoping for better with the new LOTR show but have my doubts!

The Shannara series was weirdly awful, and didn't remotely match my memory of the books.

The LOTR series will be interesting as it's based on only a few pages of book. I fear it may be awful!

You missed out. The epic giant battle between millions if Daemons and the elven Castle got reduced to about 20 guys in bad costumes larping in some woods. Hilariously shit

the first series is costing Amazon almost $500M to make. Thats almost as much as the entire Peter Jackson trilogy
