  1. What am I doing in this forum?I feel ashamed to be here.
  2. Intelligence causing trouble? Ofcourse, Just like newton and da vinci did. Just like brilliant kids now-a days are leveled as un-cool and geek. Freedom of choice? Thats a matter of perspective. It needs intelligence to make right choice. Wrong choice gets people in trouble. Ofcourse the libereal will try to discredit anything that points to the truth.The book is great and full of facts. Oh, I wasn't reffering to the sexual issue of the Twilight series. I was marking something else. Just try to find out the main reason and people responsible for USA's jobs trouble, wars and etc. And keep an open mind. You are asking for freedom of choice, but to make a choice you need to know that facts. Try to find out the facts first. And just because the media says something is "right and cool" doesn't make it so. Intelligence causing trouble......hu...ha...ha...ha...thats got be the most ridiculus things I ever heard. Intelligent created Nuclear....intelligent people use it to produce electricity, the twisted people use it to bomb. I said Intelligent and grace(that includes moral values as well. I didn't mean simple beauty by "grace"). My mistake, I should have used responsibility and morality instead of grace.
  3. Most of the novels now-a days, sells some kind of propaganda.Everytime I read a book, its the same, the pattern is there, they are trying to shove something particularly nasty through your throat. Even if its obvious most don't see it. You will enjoy fact: If you want fact, read this books: http://www.amazon.com/Death-West-Populations-Immigrant-Civilization/dp/0312285485 oh, by the way, I don't live in USA.So there is nothing to be gained by me. I just hate sexual infedility, and promiscuity with a passion. Curdles me inside. God knows why. I believe, western culture is the only culture that can prevent such mindless sex all around. Really quite pathetic. It is Grace and intelligent that separate us from animal, it is grace and creativity that makes life interesting.
  4. The worst boot-licking propaganda in the history of literature is "Twilight" series. Next comes the later books from harry poter. Mindless, lack of philosophical value. If you want fact, read this books: http://www.amazon.com/Death-West-Populations-Immigrant-Civilization/dp/0312285485 oh, by the way, I don't live in USA.So there is nothing to be gained by me. I just hate sexual infedility, and promiscuity with a passion. Curdles me inside. God knows why. I believe, western culture is the only culture that can prevent such mindless sex all around. Really quite pathetic. It is Grace and intelligent that separate us from animal, it is grace and creativity that makes life interesting.
  5. The first three books were entertaining, but the subsequent books got to have the usual "whitewashing", thats goes on now with anything that become famous. It is clearly evident in the later books, the propaganda, I am sure some shrewd person who is now aware of the worlds biggest crisis will understand what I am talking about.

  6. I completely agree with Swigaro. Thats how I view ASOIAF. I read first three books, but I was fairly pissed after reading the first one. I read the other two out of spite and also because I am damn stuborn.I just couldn't let my money waste so I wasted my times as well. I agree Martin is a very good writter. But I hate his series with a passion.It felt like I could easily read world history and bringing a dragon or two along with some vodoo and hocus focus and thus having the same effect ..... a fantasy series. I can read Rise and fall of Roman Empire....with nice jucy blend of my own imagination , importing some magic.....viola...my own home made fantasy. And yes, I read fantasy to escape reality for some time. I can't read a fantasy or any book, unless I like the central character, unless there is one. No there isn't anything that says there has to be a central character...but I am not reading them unless there is. Also I like happy ending cause I am used to see so much unhappy and some time tragic ending in real life. Those of us who crave to see real love and happy endings in fantasy books are actually more aware of the harsh reality of the real world.Thats why we seek escape and writer like Marting doesn't help...But Robert Jordan does. :)
  7. How would you know if BS doesn't follows RJ's instruction regarding how the series ends? I get it that RJ wrote the end. Did he actually write the last chapter? If not, then there is a lot of room to manuever for our tragedy loving BS. Frankly, the only tragedy is going to hit hard is if Rand dies. Though I would applaude if BS somehow manage to kill Egwene and Gwyen. It will be a really sweet tragedy. Did I say tragedy? ;D ;D
  8. Well, when RJ was writing the series, I was certain that Rand is going to survive.
  9. Just finished Stasheff Christopher's Wizard in Rhyme series. Good read. Liked the series. Fun reading and enlightening. Specially I found myself agreeing with his moral issue's. The way he depicted them in the series, was refreshing. So I have decided to read all of his other books. Starting with Warlocks heir.
  10. Yeah...similarity is there. Like Polgara for Garion, Moraine for Rand, And Kahlan comes for Richard. Other similarity between, Belgarion and WOT is their strike and counter strike types action. It really sets the two series apart from others except LOR, which also has strike and counter strike. I got really tired of typical books series where, the hero or heroine is beaten like a dog the whole time...and suddenly at the last page they kill their antagonist and prevaile. I mean "Oh really?" Where is the paradox? The hero/heroin who is clearly a underdog and remain so for the whole length of book...suddenly defeat the evil great power....I became sick of those books.Not to mention "The good old separation(kidnaping) spell", which unfortunately is also more often then not the main theme of most of book series. And at last I stumbled on Belgarion. And what a relief? And the whole Elenium and Belgarion series was fun...really entertaining. Yeah, and CNedra is really adoring. And then I got WOT. And liked that even more. Cause strike and counter strike. Rand or Garion, neither one of them is powerless...infact they were described as the one of the top hounds in their respective area of responsibility.
  11. I have seen the previews.Casting for Kahlan is ok I guess...I mean it will be impossible to have some one like the Kahlan Terry Goodkind described in the book.Her age can be forgiven due to the fact that she must have an ageless look while appearing young.(Even though she doesn't look as young as described the book). But the guy for Richard...totaly sucks.Apart from the book description if you compare him to the previous standard( Herculis)...Well there is a huge difference.I failed to see any personality in his appearance.He looked immature as well.As I have seen all the episode of Herculis, well you can guess, he doesn't come anywhere near to Kevn Sorbo's standard.And these kind of anomaly with casting makes us wonder "what the hell is going on with show biz?" Once again the old saying: There is no Casting like Lord of the Rings....the whole series to movie was great in every aspect.
  12. Read the first book of Assasin apprentice, didn't like it much. Anyway, ofcourse we can recommend completed finished series. The question is wheather or not you will like it. So there it is: 1.The Kingdom of Thorn and Bone by Greg Keyes 2.Tears of Artamon by Sarah Ash. 3.The Banned and the Banished by James Clemence. 4.Janny Wurts - The Cycle of Fire. 5.Dawn Cook - Truth 6.Holly Lisle - Secret Texts. 7.Haydon Elizabeth-Rhapsody( I am confuse about the ending of this series). 8.Canavan, Trudi - Black Magician 9.Kate elliot-Crown of Stars. 10.David Eddings- Ellenium and Belgariod. 11. Fiona Mcintosh- The Quickening 12.Chester, Deborah - Sword, Ring & Chalice. 13.Elaine Corvidae - Lord of Wind and Fire 14.Terry Goodkind-Sword of Truth. And here I will be a good boy and stop. And also warn you that none of these book is erotic. Romantic, yes, but not erotic. I wish someone warned me before I bought certain books on Witch and vampire...and well you can guess my surprise, here I was all ready for a nice twisting plot,some heated battle...and I was treated with endless sex scene, with a very predictable and ridiculous plot. Burn me.Blood and bloody ashesh.
  13. Adult scene is all well and good as long as they coincide with the actual plot. But when they seems to dominate a book, it becomes irritating.I have the misfortune to read some such books and unfortunately, most of these writers are female. And the main theme of their book seems to become sexual fantasy. And the plots become ridiculously simple. These books verges on the edge of becoming purly errotic. And you will see their difference with George RR Martin, Robert Jordan, Sanderson and some other writers becomes abysmally huge. While these writter potrays all aspect of life including sex in a right proportion and mantaine an intricate plot, the other whose books main theme become sex, doesn't have much in a way of life, novelity or intrigue. While books like WOT thrives on excellent plotline, intrigue, culture and friction between personality...etc these other books come no way neer the standard. It is giving the female writers a bad name, since some people began to question wheather or not these female writer have any talent on literature of any sort except errotics. Or if they are purely using errotic scene to get their book sold. Exception: Gail Z Martin CL Wilson Asaro Catherine Haydon Elizabeth Berg Carol Ann bishop Kurtz Katherine Mercedes lackay. and few others. I haven't read Kushiel yet...so I don't know about her. Funny Review: On Amazon there was a review on Ann bishop...warning the reader of "Taboo sex". The irony is it is a false alarm. It has far less taboo than some other books which have been reffered to as "innocent". On a personal note: If I want to learn more about how to have great sex....well there is a lot of books there that gives very good graphics instruction and I am all for learning. But to those female writer, please do spare me, I am here to enjoy a good plot with nice Romance...thats all.
  14. Yeah, Recluse Series is good. The Magic of Recluse should be the last book, if you like to read it in sequence.So Magi of Cyador should be the first book to read. I have just finished reading Recluse. The great book, for me in this month was 3rd book of C.L Wilson's Tairen Soul seires.Really great romance fantasy saga.It was well worth the money, really entertaining. Read some other, but won't recommend them, cause I didn't like them.
