Re: The "Book" thread.

You may find the first Dark Tower book slightly hard to get in to. OTOH the very first sentence of the book is great and should draw you in.


I'm re-reading A Feast For Crows by George RR MArtin, then I'm moving on to a collection of short stories from Neil Gaiman.

Re: The "Book" thread.

Right now I'm reading The Strain by Guillermo Del Torro

It's a vampire horror novel and I absolutely love it. This is my second read through it. It's how vampire stories should be told.

You may be right. At the moment I'm struggling to concentrate on anything haha, wandering mind. I'd like to have a series to read though, & not just one book after another.

I'm still bloody reading Lord Of The Flies, due to lack of concentration, next is the Gene Wilder autobiography & the Ronnie Wood autobiography; anybody read either??

Re: The "Book" thread.

I loved the first Dark Tower book. It's probably my favorite of the series.

Re: The "Book" thread.

I'm not reading anything currently. Thinking about picking up American Gods by Neil Gaiman.

You really can't go wrong with the first four. Wizard and Glass is my favorite of the series though.

You should've started A Song of Ice and Fire, but The Dark Tower is pretty fucking awesome until Wolves of the Calla and beyond. Who knows, you might enjoy the final three books. A Song of Ice and Fire is miles beyond The Dark Tower though.

I will say this and end it for now. Roland chose an awesome weapon to get his guns from Cort.

Re: The "Book" thread.

Since this is the book thread

Spoilers for ASOIAF series (well more of an update re: what's happening)
Spoiler for ADWD:

8 July 2010 Update:
At a book signing in San Diego, whilst teaching at Clarion, GRRM confirmed that ADWD has reached 1,400 pages in manuscript. He indicates that he was disappointed not to have finished the book before attending Clarion, but was not drawn on how close completion might me after his return home on the 11th.


Good news I guess. I think he's got a fair bit done but since he doesn't write the book chronologically it makes it hard to tell. He was having a lot of trouble with some Mereneese chapters a while back, I think. Still good news, and encouraging news I think.

Re: The "Book" thread.

Yeah he often talks about the Mereenese Knot, or just King Kong as he calls it now. No tellin when he can untie that sumbitch.

1400 is pretty big. I do remember reading that he took some POV's and decided to move them to the next book, The Winds of Winter.

Re: The "Book" thread.

Yer, he talks about that. Atm he has 4 chapters for the next book done already apparently, due to shifting stuff around. Hopefully once Dance is done he can get through them somewhat quicker.
