Finished A Storm of Swords last night. There was more action in 2 chapters in that book than in 2 books of Jordan!

Dutchess - I see your point about throwing the book around in anger.

Well, I finished Fall of Hyperion, the Sandman comic book, and Lord of Light. I am now reading C. S. Lewis's Till We Have Faces, which is pretty good so far! Very Happy

Well, I finished up Till We Have Faces, am going to read a book by David Brin next. It's called Glory Season, and was recommended to me by Lord Danlo, so I'm pretty sure I will find it a very good read. Very Happy

I have just started reading "Inversions" by Iain M. Banks. So far I have not gotten a handle on what it actually is about, but it is very good for all that.

For lighter stuff I am currently rereading "The War God's Own" by David Weber. It is fantasy, unlike most of his other stuff but it is quite good if you are looking for a little lighter militaristic fantasy with some magic thrown in.

Just started A.A. Attansio's "Last Legends of Earth". Reminds me a bit of Neverness but so far I'm only about 50 pages in. Very cerebral stuff!

I am currently reading Ursula LeGuin's The Other Wind, having raced through the previous books of the Earthsea series.

Though, I have to say, it took me a very long time to get into A wizard of Earthsea. The book just didn't grab me till I was at least halfway through it...after which I was definitely addicted. Very Happy

Watership Down, Watership Down! What a great book! Long live Fiver! Cussing (Yeah, I know, a little extreme, but I've been wanting to use that graemilin for the longest time!) Very Happy

Bannor, that is a good book! Didn't you tell me that there is now a sequel, too? I had never heard of the second book before...is it as good as the first?? Question

More Tales from Watership Down is excellent, but not nearly as good as the first. Have you read Watership Down?

My admiration level for you just went up significantly! Wink (It was already high!) It's so refreshing to find some Watership Down fans! Lion Lion

Just finished the Chrons amd then Mordant's Need. Everyone here seems to really love The Gap, so that's next on my agenda, but I needed a break before I dive into something that (reputedly) dark. So right now I'm reading Deryni Checkmate by Katherin Kurtz for about the twentieth time. Just some nice simple religious persecution and genocide. Sad
