I just finished Chainfire, and I actually enjoyed it, even if he is extremely long winded. Also, he is the only author I have ever read that made me skip dialogue. view post

One thing I did not enjoy about the book was the ending, when everyone cried their asses off and wanted to die becasue they were wrong and he was right and they doubted him etc. etc... That was a bit annoying. view post

I forgot, I am now reading Shadowmarch, I moved it up in my list. I am only about 30 pages in though and I have no drive to read it. <!-- s:( --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" title="Sad" /><!-- s:( --> view post

Shadowmarch was a top notch book, or at least I thought it was. And yea I totaly agree with ya, the 50 pages of crying at the end was a little over done........ view post

A Telling of Stars by Caitlin Sweet

I'm about 70 pages in and stuggling a little bit. Sweet writes beautifully, there is no denying that, but there are aspects that are a bit rough. The book is being told as a fable, which makes the feel of the story a bit odd. Also, this being a first book, the pacing and plotting don't work well together. The book feels rushed.

Still, there is enough real quality to drive me onwards. view post

Currently reading A Calculus of Angels by Greg Keyes.

Apparently there are four books in this Age of Unreason series which I somehow managed to miss completely the first time they came out. The first two are very good. view post

I just finished Alexander Irvine's second book, One King, One Soldier, which is a combination tale dealing with the Fisher King myth, Egyptian mythology, Arthurian Lore, and Templar Mystery. The book wasn't brilliant, I enjoyed Tim Powers Fisher King novel, Last Call, more, but it was quite good. You get an alternative view of history between 1890 and 1950 or so.

Right now, I just started Tim Powers The Anubis Gates, which is a time travel book combining Egyptian Mythology, 1800's England, and strange collection of characters. The Prologue was quite thrilling. view post

I just finished Shadowmarch, I must say, I am thoroughly dissapointed, the book kind of stays flat. The next one should be great, this one seemed like one big set up for the next. eh.

Just started Mitchell Graham's The Ancient Legacy, not overly cerebral, but it keeps the pages turning. view post


Now Reading... posted 21 February 2005 in Off-Topic DiscussionNow Reading... by AjDeath, Didact

Graham's The Ancient Legacy was a damn good read, not the most talented or vivid writer out there, but knows how to move a story along.

I have now just started Deadhouse Gates. Been waiting for awhile for this one. view post

I'm currently working on The Dragon Reborn in Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find book four anywhere. Five, yes, but four is very popular, apparently.

That makes me sad.

sukoudo, the good news is that you can stop reading those RJ books after book 6, because they all suck from there on out. Seriously.

I'm currently reading William Gibson's Pattern Recognition, a book I resisted reading for a long time because it wasn't science fiction. However, much to my amazement, it is shaping up to be Gibson's best book. view post

I just finished Tim Powers' delightful time-travel novel, The Anubis Gates. Currenlty, I'm in the midst of K.J. Bishop's debut novel, The Etched City, which is quite interesting.

In the near future, I'm going to switch veins and hit up a few gritty action novels... Stover's Heroes Die is at the top of the pile. view post

I'm in the middle of Ursula Le Guin's Wizard of Earthsea. I'm enjoying it, though it's a little cold and impersonal.

I just finished Life of Pi by Yann Martel. Absolutely brilliant...seriously.

Before Life of Pi, I read Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole. I laughed my desk-job-fattened ass off... view post
