I won't remember *anything* that happened in the previous books.
Does anyone else have this problem? It really stinks, because it has prevented me from getting that feeling of fulfillment that comes with a series end since the whole time I'm trying to remember all the details. It would be awesome if every book had a summary of the previous novels in the front like the Alagaesia Cycle, but that is unfortunately not the case.
But there are SOME solutions.
This is one of my FAVORITE resources. They have summaries of a ton of books. Plus, if they don't have a book listed, you can request it! Awesome, right?
Wikipedia isn't always the best, but it sometimes has thorough (if poorly written) summaries. It's always worth taking a look!
3. Fan sites
This is hit or miss, as not all books have fan sites. But for books with big followings that tend to have wiki pages or the like, it's always good to check those out!
What resources do you have when you don't remember the events in previous books?
