  1. I suggest reading Steven Erikson's Malazan Book of the Fallen series. The first book is really hard to get in to but once your into it, the series is just amazing.
  2. One of my favorite characters is the Hound. Love Arya too.
  3. Just wanted to add something to my previous post... I disagree mainly because i've read the 4 books from the series that are out so far. Yes they are quite graphic, they involve sex, some incest and lots of murder but at the same time it's brilliantly written. GrrM also does an AMAZING job at developing his characters, which as a reader, is something I have come to appreciate in a good fantasy book. He also keeps you on edge since he doesnt shy away from offing his characters. These books may not be for everyone, which is apparent already from some of the replys. I just personally think that Martin is the type of Author everyone who likes fantasy should atleast give a try.
  4. I'm really interested in finding out how they (Aes Sedai) could have forged a better coalition between the nations then Rand. Considering all the obstacles Rand faces, he's done a mighty fine job.
  5. Pfffffffffffffffff. "never read GRRM" :roll: I strongly disagree.
  6. I do often find myself thinking after I pick up a WoT book. Most often it's about how much I hate Aes Sedai though.
  7. I thought it was a good read. For that reason ill suggest that you give it a try :p.
  8. yup, thats the one. All the pretty Aes Sedai were really quite upset about the thumping he gave to Galad especially :).
  9. Wow...good question. I'm gonna have to go with Galad's duel at the start of KoD. I've always been a big fan of those 1 v 1 battles.
  10. Good points everyone. It was starting to look like Rand was on Prozac for a while. I definately think that him showing a little emotion is a good thing and Cads the one whos trying to help him to do this. As for the way Cads treats him, I cant say its with a lack of respect. It's more of a tough love kinda thing i'd say. With that being said, I still hate (yes i know hate is a strong word, but so is my dislike for Aes Sedai) 95% of the Aes Sedai of the White Tower. Just so the AS lovers don't jump all over me ... Moraine gets mad respect in my books and is one of my top 10 fav chars.
  11. I don't think I could be an Aes Sedai, especially with the way they act now a days in Randland. With that being said, i'd go for being an Asha Man and than I would go about binding Aes Sedai from the white tower. Without their consent.
  12. Yah, the weaves just kind of melt when they touch him. It wont stop someone from picking up rocks with the power and throwing them at him.
  13. hmmm. In one of the later books, I cant recall which. Anyways, Rand sends some crazy stuff out of his fingers. The only way I can describe it is by saying that its kind of like what Cyclops can do with his eyes. He also turns the gateways into a weapon by opening and closing them rapidly. LTT had a name for both of these talents because I can remember logain asking Rand what he was doing and he replys with something.
  14. Any respect Rand should have shown Aes Sedai was immediately thrown out the window when he was bonded by that biatch alanna. as for cadsuane.... I dont really think she has any right to lecture Rand about how he should behave. I'd like to see what kind of sacrifices shes making that make her so special. She's suppose to die facing the DO in the LB right? She was kept locked in a chest and periodically tortured by a group of Aes Sedai right? She was illegally bonded by a male asha man right? No, she wasn't. Just as a side note. I LOVE the way Aes Sedai get treated by the Wise Ones. Its a little taste of their own medicine Oh, and the next time one of those things trys to get Mats medallion...I really think he should slap her, quite hard too.
  15. Thanks for all the kind greetings people! Heal, I have definately been reading quite a bit recently. Im on my second way through WoT and im using the audio books this time. Im really looking forward to starting G.r.r.M :D
  16. Hi everyone. Hopefully you are all well. Ive been surfin this site the past couple of days and thought i'd finally register. ... Feel free to call me FF annnnnd as for the basics...Ive never ACTUALLY finished reading LOTR, I know its sad but I just find myself putting it down for months at a time :\ (I WILL finish it though, I promise!). So when I got the EoTw from my buddy a couple years ago it just kind of laid around the house. I just thought that it would be some dry material.... Finally last sept I picked it up and ended up reading the series in a couple of months and i've gotta say its definately gotten me into reading again, im hooooked and ive yet to find anything to match it. I am fairly new to the fantasy world and so far ive gotten through the WOT, about 5 of Salvatores Drizzt books and atm im on book 3 of Farlands Runelords...Next is G.R.R.M s AsOfAi(I hope its as good as ive heard!) ne ways, I look forward to some good times in the future. lates :)
