Book three of Amber. I have them all in one HUGE volume, and everytime I pull it out at my breaks at work, someone or other curses when they see the size of the thing. More Razz Rolling Eyes Laughing

Despite my five hour nap yesterday afternoon and then staying up to 3AM in the Ahira's Hangar chatroom with Danlo, Lord Foul, and Damelon, I still have managed to make it to book 4 of Amber. Laughing Laughing But it's off to work soon, so I don't think I'll get much further today. More Razz

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


OMG. There`s a sequel to Watership Down? I love that book too. I first read it in 1980 when I was 16. I love the the "rabbit mythology" of El-ahrairah and Frith. And my pets know the lawn mower, vacuum cleaner and car as hrududu.

At the present time I`m re-reading The Silmarillion. I`m up to the Chapter "Of Beren and Luthien" *sigh*. Rolling Eyes

You have reached the height of Watership Down fanship! When you start naming things after the book, you're in! Glad to meet another fan. (I have a Fiver in my classroom) Very Happy

I finally finished up the Great Book of Amber, which was a great read. I think next I'll read a book I picked up on Japanese mythology. Cool

Let me know what you think; I loved that book when I was younger.

I'm shockingly reading SRD again. But I'm psyched to get all of these suggestions! I'm definitely going to be trying Amber.

Lord of Light is amazing. I've read it like 10 times. I'm reading the Silmarillion; really interesting stuff. I kind of wish SRD would put together some kind of past-history. Hey, maybe I'll post a thread on that!

Lord of Light IS a great book! I read that one fairly recently, too. Smile

I'm enjoying my book on Japanese mythology. I didn't know anything about it coming into the book, and I'm already starting to make some mental connections with one of the characters in Amber! Laughing

Zelazny used a lot of mythology in his books -- Indian subcomtinent in Lord of Light, Greek in This Immortal, ancient Egyptian in Creatures of Light and Darkness, and I had thought a bit of Arthurian stuff in Amber, but I think just a touch of Japanese mythology in the character of Prince Benedict, too! Smile

Lord of Light is great. And Benedict is way cool, although I know nothing about japanese mythology.

Currently I am not really reading any fantasy books, but that is going to change. Probably I am going to see if Well of the Unicorn is any good.

Is that special or do you read all Pern books that many times?

there's absolutely nothing wrong with rereading books, TF. I've always felt that books that we've read become our good friends, and who wants to visit good friends just once? The more we visit them, the more learn about them.

I agree with Bannor--my favorite books have become friends of a sort, and I keep seeing new things in them. reading Lord Foul's bane as a married person with children in my thirties is a very different experience than reading it the first time as a teenager. The best books grow with me. Very Happy

I totally agree with you duchess. I find that I develop a need or longing to revisit my favourite books, just to "touch base" with favourite characters and places and its amazing how different parts of the story seem to stand out more at each rereading.
