  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.

    The whole dragon subplot was always extremely uninteresting to me in the Realm of the Elderlings trilogies. That's probably why I haven't started reading the Rain Wild books (despite owning the first 2). I was far more interested in the characters. Would love a proper sequel trilogy to the Liveship Trilogy.
  16. Question to the Abercrombie fans out there. I read the First Law trilogy, enjoyed it quite a bit until what I considered to be an absolutely abysmal ending. (not because it was depressing, but because it threw all plot progression that had been made through 3 books out of the window) Should I read the 3 stand alone novels or will I be equally disappointed?
  17. It's not confusing, it's detailed.

    Anyone else?

    There's no pet like a dog
  19. Finished King of Thorns, not a huge fan of the whole "4 years earlier" model. Hope the next one (presumably Emperor of Thorns) wont do the same. Currently reading The Many Deaths of the Black Company and so far I'm surprised by how engaging Water Sleeps is. The books had taken a turn for the worse in the last few entries but these are great.

    Oh I agree they're certainly her weakest books (although I haven't read any of the Rain Wild Chronicles), but I still think they're quite good and has one of the more interesting settings/worlds I've seen.

    I thought Soldier's son was great. Very depressing though.

    Eek! Snakes! *runs and hides*

    Absolutely! I'm jealous of you for having your first read of them ahead of you

    The 3 original trilogies (Farseer, Liveship and Tawny Man) were all fantastic, some of my favourite books.
