Re: The Book thread.

Currently reading the "wheels of time" series by Robert Jordan to stop people telling me I have to.
I'm at the second book right now, not enjoying it a lot to be honest, weak writing I would say, characters are kinda bland (apart for 2 or 3 of them) and the plot is way too predictable.

Well, i have enjoyed the series a lot. some people don't like the whole gender theme, but its alright for me. Most interesting thing for me is the theme that world's savior is slowly going mad. I am rereading it currently.

Re: The Book thread.

If anyone is interested in hockey history or just crazy life stories Theo Fleury's play-by-play of games is better than about 98% of actual hockey games that don't involve Crosby in the last few years. Hockey was so much better when I was a kid, you can't match the heart of that generation, or the craziness.

Fantasy is my favorite genre, I just found this particular writer pretty "weak" since now but the insanity theme you talked about sounds interesting, anyway I will read the whole series for sure before giving a final opinion

Re: The Book thread.

Finished the last book in the Inheritance Cycle series by Christopher Paolini, a little sad as always when I finish a book series :/ but a good read while it lasted.

Going to continue with reading the Georgina Kincaid series now, stopped after the third book: Succubus Dreams, now I'll continue on.

it's no asoiaf but it's more in the middle as opposed to being at the lower end of the spectrum i'd say. books 3/4/5 are all pretty strong i'd say. don't really think the series is predictable as a whole though.

Re: The Book thread.

Just finished reading "The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak and I really enjoyed it. Anybody else read it? I really liked the plot and the style of the author in this one.

Re: The Book thread.

^Yes, I read The Book Thief a couple years ago. I don't think I have read a novel more profound, disturbing, moving, and emotionally draining since. The choice of narrator was unique and brilliant. I think this is a novel that everyone should read. Though if anyone does decide to pick it up, be prepared to cry. I know I did.

Re: The Book thread.

Did you finish the Game of Thrones trilogy Titania? If so what did you think?

Re: The Book thread.

Hmm, Games of Thrones trilogy? I mentioned interest in seeing the show on HBO but since I'm not into fantasy I wasn't intending to read the books. Have you read the novels and if so, thoughts on them? Do you think someone who doesn't normally read fantasy could get into them?

Reading has always been one of my passions, I majored in English and I'm a licensed English teacher, though unemployed. I like classic literature (Dostoevsky, Austen, Bronte sisters, Fitzgerald, Steinbeck, Salinger, etc.) though over the past five years I've been picking up lighter novels like the Twilight Sagwa and I'm reading Catching Fire now, just for entertainment purposes. I need to be in the mood to read Dostoevsky.
