    So, I think I found the most "emo" thing I read as a teen!

    Ladies and gents, The Chronicles Of Thomas Convenant!

    And y'know what? Looking back on it, I'd NEVER read those books again!

    I read the first two series back in the 80s because I girl I had a crush on had read them. Depressing, but well written and a really thought out world. I've read the first two books of the latest series and still have to read the third.

    The most emo things I read as a teenager were probably Sweep the Leg Johnny lyrics sheets.

    What do I think of you? In my head it is 10 minutes in the future and I am pissing on your corpse. Any other questions?

    I got the box set of the first three books in paperback as a gift when I was in high school. I read probably the first book and a half before setting it down. I realized the lead character just grated on me so much that every time I picked it up felt like a chore, so eventually I just moved on to something else.

    I could only get partway through the first book.

    I think my prob was that I liked the supporting cast, but HATED Thomas Covenant. ESPECIALLY after how he treats the girl who finds him in The Land.

    I liked the fantasy world he created and a lot of the characters, but hated and loathed the protagonist.
