    I agree with most of your list (that I have read), except the above.

    Heck no. I would watch it before I pulled my eyes out, but not by much. That is literally one of the least interesting fantasy series you could produce and expect people to like. The first 2 books, or maybe even the first trilogy were a horrific slog of petulant whining and bellyaching by the protagonist about how can he not be a leper anymore and he refuses to use his abilities. Its a test on the reader's level of masochism.

    The other series I found to be an utter drag was Gene Wolfe's Claw of the Concilator series.

    If you want to use a good LOTR clone series, I did enjoy Eddings writing in The Belgariad.
