  1. I just got my copy through the post (thanks Amazon for being excellent and prompt). I'm supposed to be job hunting but it's so tempting to crack it open and start reading.
  2. It's the second book of the Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss. The first book is called The Name of the Wind: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Name-Wind-Kingkiller-Chronicle/dp/0575081406/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1298900674&sr=8-1 I have pre-ordered my copy of Wise Man's Fear. Can't wait to get my hands on it, currently rereading Name of the Wind in preparation.
  3. Comedian Bill Hicks saw all this coming back in the 90s. To quote him: "I was sitting in the Waffle House reading a book when the trucker behind me turns around and says 'Well, well, looks like we got ourselves a reader!' And the waitress comes up and says 'What you readin' for?' To which I say, 'Ah gee, maybe so I don't end up as a Waffle House waitress.' " I can't do the e-Readers. I need the solid form of an actual book to read, I don't have to charge them up to read them and then there's the smell.
  4. I've been told to watch 'Idiocracy'. Though I'm slightly afraid too because after reading the blurb about it, I'm afraid I will lose all faith in humanity. Rasheta, people who are snobby and walk around with their noses in the air, we Brits refer to them as toffee-nosed twats. I have found it to be a handy phrase.
  5. You've used the phrase Tai'shar [insert country name here] in conversation with someone. I've done that before (got some funny looks and replies) and both of water seeker's suggestions.
  6. Stop stealing my fanfic ideas! Brandon knows. We talked about it this weekend at Minicon. And I know Jason has talked to him too. He's got to complete his revisions on THE WAY OF KINGS by tomorrow, but if he has time, he'll try to post something. Finishing revisions is kinda big news. Nice one Brandon. I'm pretty excited about the new series. Me too, I've just ordered the paperback of Warbreaker, which has the prologue to Way of Kings in the back.
  7. Was after something new, so started Ian Irvine's The Well of Echoes series. Currently working my way through Geomancer, so far, so good. :)
  8. Love the Xerox comment, I'll have to remember that. :D Most people's biggest gripe is not that Goodkind borrows, they all do that, but that he borrows and then doesn't give any credit. I don't like Goodkind because he includes a lot of needless violence among other things. RJ put in violence too, but there was usually a purpose to it. I made myself read the whole series (don't know why) and had a big 'wtf' right at the end. The only original thing in it was the 'chicken that is not a chicken' and that was a 'wtf' moment too.
  9. Yes, we have lots of spiders in the dungeons. Better to be in the dungeon as an SG member than in one of the cells. Where else but Shayol Ghul do you get to carry off other DM members and lock them in the dungeon. 8)
  10. Some of those masons were actually soldiers meant to help with overthrowing Siuan. Danelle knew what it was and I believe helped organise it. I don't think we've seen Danelle since TSR.
  11. Taim is not Demandred. We have that from RJ himself. We also know that we haven't seen Demandred's alter ego yet, so that means he's not Darlin either, as someone else suggested. My best guess is that he's with the Borderland army.
  12. ..why do you miss them? What sort of diabolical spoiler did you just expose me to? :o None, not to worry. Jon and Dany just don't have any chapters in A Feasat for Crows. :)
  13. Yeah, ASoIaF is a must read, but you will be waiting a long while for the fifth book. Once you've finished those, try Brandon's other works (Elantris and Warbreaker in particular) and if you haven't already, you might want to try Patrick Rothfuss' Name of the Wind. It's the start of a trilogy, he's still working away on the second book. :)
