    The Suzerain of Night
  • Birthday January 1
  1. I just googled the series a little bit, sounds pretty interesting... How are you finding it so far?
  2. Currently reading The Republic by Plato
  3. I second the Malazan books. Also give the Farseer/Liveship/Tawny Man trilogies by Robin Hobb a look.
  4. Quite fond of the Heavies quote in my signature A couple from WoT that I really like as well (paraphrasing a bit) "Kneel and swear to the Lord Dragon... or be knelt" - Mazrim Taim "He just needed killing is all" - Rand and probably my favourite WoT quote of them all: "...And despite what she did to him, ruined as he was, he managed to hang on to life, hang on to saidin, long enough for Daigian to drive her off. So you remember his name! Eben Hopwil. He fought for his Aes Sedai long after he should have been dead!" - Jahar Narishma Edit: I'll post more as I think of them
  5. My last exam was yesterday as well (Advanced Java programming), still alive though!
  6. Lord of the Rings is great, although it's probably my least favorite of the "main" books set in Middle Earth (The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, Silmarillion, The Unfinished Tales and Children of Hurin). PS: Incidentally that's the reading order I'd recommend for the books as well.
  7. I quite enjoyed the series. I thought the ending was really anti climactic, and I expected more of a showdown at the tower, but other than that I was quite satisfied.
  8. Ermergerd, spoilers man (I've already read it but I'm sure someone might stumble in here who hasn't)
  9. What did you think of that latest Erikson release Hallow? Actually haven't read it yet, I was knee deep in the Thorns series and the Black Company Series when it released, so I want to be all done with those before I start. it's sitting on my shelf though :D
  10. The Malazan books are probably my favourite Fantasy books (shocker, right?)
  11. Bors notes a Shieneran warrior at the social. I think it's generally assumed that he is Ingtar.
  12. Sheppard is a total assface. And he's a boring character to boot. Good thing that ME had such a good supporting cast. Biggest fictional jerk ever? God.
  13. You have to appreciate the situation he was in. Sure it was a mistake and not totally cool. But Kenobi was probably experiencing quite a bit of emotional upheaval at that point. Executing his former apprentice probably would have been to much.
  14. Hopefully at one point down the line Sanderson is allowed to write those books. One can hope.
