I have read through that series before and it is by no means for a beginner. I know it is "Learn C The Hard Way" but it really isn't a beginners guide more like a guide for someone who is very familiar to a programming language.
I also do not like how it is written and do not agree with a lot of what is said -- most of it, to put correctly, is bullcrap. The author pretty much dislikes C and even suggests at the end to learn something new. It seems that he doesn't know C that well or is oversimplifying things too much and causing a confusion.
I do like a "no nonsense" style but his book is full of nonsense. I won't say what is wrong here but I found someone who mainly agrees with me: http://hentenaar.com/dont-learn-c-the-wrong-way
