  1. Hmmm.... you didn't like Goodkind? Pity.

     

    But oh well, not everyone agrees with me!I'll try to name some good ones. :D

     

    The Codex Alera by Jim Butcher is excellent. There are three so far and although the first dragged a bit they keep getting better and better. (His "Dresden Files" are a great read too).

     

    Then there are the books "Mistborn" and "Elantris" by Brandon Sanderson. Epic books with engaging characters and plotlines.

     

     

    And Fiona Mcintosh's "Quickening Trilogy" is definately worth reading! Great story, always another twist, just stunning!

  2. The philosophy is that of Objectivism, which was started by the reknowned author Ayn Rand. Goodkind is a big follower of it. It all has to do with the idea that man is a noble being who has no responsibility to live up to anyone elses expectations.

  3. In no particular order:

     

    1. The Prestige

    2. The Illusionist

    3. Gladiator

    4. The Passion of the Christ

    5. V for Vendetta

    6. The Sixth Sense

    7. Halloween

    8. Exorcism of Emily Rose

    9. Road to Perdition

    10. Walk the Line

    11. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy

    12. Ghostbusters

    13. Memento

    14. Batman Begins

    15. Fallen

  4. Those books are somewhere in my top 5 list' date=' and I'm all kinds of excited about the movie. Especially after seeing the trailer. Of course it won't be EXACTLY like the book... No movie ever is. What matters is if the director's interpretation of it makes a good story. December 15 is a long time! Bah![/quote']

     

    I agree! I can hardly wait!

  5. I liked the books, but I agree with Kadere on one thing. For everyone who haven't read the books, Varden are supposed to be armed resistence housed for safety in the kingdom/home of dwarves. And in the trailer they have them dressed like insane jamaicans(no racism intended)! I mean really, who goes to war in long orange, green, leopard, and blue robes??????

  6. I wanted to thank you all for your suggestions. :D And' date=' in case y'all are wondering, I picked up "Wizard's First Rule" which is apparently the first in this "Sword of Truth" series. I tried to look for A Song of Ice and Fire, but I found Goodkind's book first (I guess he just put out a new one, "Phantom") so that's what I went with.[/quote']

     

    HAHA! Good choice!!!!! Tell me if you like it. I think I am one of only maybe 10 Goodkind fans on this forum.

  7. I praise Ill Nino for making kick ass latin metal, Terry Goodkind for being the best author in the known world, Staind for being an awesome band, President Bush for refusing to meet with the Phsycotic Prez from Iran, myself for making great headway in my book lol, the dudes who made the Eragon movie(which already looks better than the book), and Jim Butcher and Brandon Sanderson for releasing awesome fantasy books.
