Re: The "Book" thread.

I've never met anyone who didn't like A Game of Thrones. So I second Lostfap here. Anyone who likes to read fiction should pick this book up.

As for the fantasy elements in A Game of Thrones, like Lostfap said the prologue has supernatural stuff, but so does the cliffhander ending...which is fucking awesome for the record.

To get a little more in depth, the entire series, called A Song of Ice and Fire, is told from various points of view of the various characters. Each chapter is named after that character so you know whose perspective your about to be reading. It makes for an amazing story. You sometimes get to see the same events, but from differing perspectives and its fascinating to see how these same events differ.

Re: The "Book" thread.

What are you currently reading?
I'm currently reading Enduring Love by Ian McEwan as well as some books about the Tudors!

Who are your favourite authors?
Stephen King and thats about it really. I guess I'm a fan of JK Rowling as well.

Any books your looking forward to?
Not at the minute really no.

Favourite ever books?
Cell, Carrie and The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King. All 3 are gripping books that had me up in the middle of the night to finish reading.

How often do you read?
Well I don't have a great attention span so I try to read a chapter of whatever book I'm reading every day.

How many books do you read?
Never more that one or two at a time. And I take my time with them normally.

Do you believe the merits of books outweight the merits of movies?
Yeah I'd easily prefer to read a great book than watch a great film, it's much easy to tell a story using pictures than it is with words!

Re: The "Book" thread.

I finally got around to buying World War Z and The Zombie survival guide. Those two are just a few in my fucking library of nonsense of a room. One book I would recommend to read though is House Of Leaves. Great book and great concept.



I'm the black guy.

Re: The "Book" thread.

....I could of sworn there was a book thread already.

Well, I'm a romance novel reader so most of the stuff I read most of you wouldn't dare look at let alone touch LOL.

Some of the recent tame stuff I read is 'Mistress of Rome'by Kate Quin; 'Wolf's Head, Wolf's Heart ' by Jane Linkold; and Dhampir (Noble Dead) by Barb Hendee and J.C. Hendee.

Re: The "Book" thread.

I'm reading through the Harry Potter books again (Deathly Hallows for the first time) before the series ends with its films.


Lord of the Flies is freakin' awesome of course, and A Game of Thrones sounds awesome. Might give it a go when I'm done with my other reading.

I am currently doing the same thing when I have the spare time, but I am currently reading 'Glass' by Ellen Hopkins. I also recommend 'Crank' by the same author.

Re: The "Book" thread.

yeah I've read Lord of the Flies. Meh, I didn't particularly agree with the entire message of the book but it was a pretty good book. Kind of funny how society and its flaws in the world can be depicted through children to prove a point.

Catcher in the Rye is probably a book most have read that would start debate, just throwing that out there.

Re: The "Book" thread.

Sorry to whoever is reading Lord of the Flies, I had to read that book for school a few years ago, I hated it.

The last book I read I think had to be.... wow, honestly, I do not recall. I do want to get my hands on The Art of War however.

Re: The "Book" thread.

A lot of people actually dislike the book. And I'm not talking about idiots who tried to get it banned for its adult themes either.
