I have some background of algebraic geometry.
I am now trying to study schemes from book Geometry of schemes by Eisenbud and Harris.
I was checking recommendations for books on algebraic geometry and see that one user suggested this book but with a comment
Oh, I'm a big fan of the book. I'm just warning that if you read it all the way through, you still won't know the 'basics' of algebraic geometry.
I am now confused whether to continue reading this or try some other book. I like the presentation as of now, I am looking at first chapter, studying local ring at a point.
I would like to hear users view about this book. I understand that this question has no single answer and it is more like a personal opinion question but I could not stop my self asking about this.
Even hartshorne's book has following review
The student who wants to get through the technical material of algebraic geo- metry quickly and at full strength should perhaps turn to Hartshorne’s book, however, my experience is that some graduate students (by no means all) can work hard for a year or two on Chapters 2–3 of Hartshorne, and still know more-or-less nothing at the end of it.
What am I supposed to do now.
