    The Reality Dysfunction - Peter F. Hamilton.

    The only Scifi series other than Dune that I've started. It's been a good read so far.

    Am trying to read the Vampire Armand, but it simply... lacks. Even with the Antonnio Banderas visuals.

    Ringworld, by Larry Niven. The ideas and the physics are interesting, the narrative is quite lame so far...

    Just finished the War of the Flowers, pretty good actually. I'm about to start The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco. After I read through some Algebra for my test. Whatta hassle..

    The Swords Of Night And Day by Gemmel. Supposed to be a load of hash flung together to give him an excuse to bring back Druss. But, meh :) .

    Snare, by Katharine Kerr. It's okay, but it's lacking something.

    Stalin The Court of the Red Tsar by Simon Sebag Montrfiore.

    Very, very scary but an interesting read – he was not a man to mess with.

    "A Few Bloody Noses: The Realities and Mythologies of the American Revoletion", by Robert Harvery.

    A very, very interesting look at the revolution

    Finally got a hold of Fool's Fate by Robin Hobb now that its come out in paperback. I'm really hoping it comes to some definate conclusion to the series. These books are decent enough, but feel a little unnecessary - the Fitz plot ended fine with Royal Assassin (I think that was the last one...?). There's not much need to stretch it on, and it's lost a lot of oomph along the line somewhere. Still well written and interesting - but not as well written and interesting as the first three.

    Yeah, I suppose I agree with that Aik. Not willingly, but I do agree. However, I love the characters so much that I enjoyed the Tawny man just as much as i did the Farseer trilogy. Fool's Fate is one hell of an emotional ride man, enjoy :)
