    What do you mean you hate Frankenstein? It is really quite brilliant.

    Anyhow, I just finished reading Tear of the Gods, just started reading Starman, and am going to read Dune.

    Starman is good. I read that whole series when I was stuck in Colorado after the junior olympics due to bad weather.

    And you hate MacBeth, Daie? But Shakespeare is wonderful! I love all of his works, personally.

    I am in a very boring place right now, so reading keeps me going. I have read two books in as many days and bought three more today. Currently starting "The Seige", yet another FR book.

    Just started reading Terry Brooks Jerle Shannarra trilogy. Not very taxing so far but enjoyable.

    Reading a storm of swords right now, could never get into the wheel of time books, wayyyyyyyyyyyyy to wordy. Read up to the 6th book and just quit after it took 30 pages to describe a short horse ride. Im not joking.

    I read the most recent book in the WOT series and I couldn't believe how little happened in it - Robert Jordan has to pick up the pace.

    offtopic: An Aiel would probably be a barbarian/monk.

    Sir Gawain and the Green Knight - by Unknown - Translated into modern English by J.R.R. Tolkien.

    :yot: Oh, and I would say that the Aiel probably fit best as kensai.

    That is my sole problem with Jordan, he desperately needs an editor. His massive books only have about 300 pages worth of plot in them. They could easiely shave 200 pages off of most of them without losing a thing and still being very descriptive.

    All Shadows Fled by Greenwood. The first book of the series was awful. The second one was pretty good, as it the third (this one).

    Robert: I think Kensai would be very close, although you'd have to substitute swords for spears. Otherwise a simple fighter or ranger.

    Instead of waiting for book 2, I'm going to start in Through the Darkness by Harry Turtledove. Don't know if it's any good, but we'll see.

    I love Turtledove's Darkness series - I really can't wait for #5 to be out in paperback.

    As usual, the library purge/packing process has inspired me to reread some old favorites. Elizabeth Scarborough's Song of Sorcery and its follow-ons are the current targets.

    I have the second part of the New Jedi Order: Force Heretic under read now... I know the third part is out as well so I'll get it asap as well.

    The New Jedii Order books are strange... and the single worst Salvatore I have read is the book that starts NJO, the Vector Prime :D

    Are those starwars books in order with the movies or what, I read 'attack of the clones' by salvatore but it was exactly the same as the movie.

    Now reading 'Dragons of Winter Night'

    First book of the dragonlance trilogy was quite a nice read.

    I am reading the first book in Turtledove's World War series. It seems very promising. I have always wondered how the nazis would fare against lizards from space ;) .

    The World at War Series is fantastic, Turtledove I believe is at his best when doing such grandsweeping series focusing mostly on the little guy caught up in it. Highly recommend this and His Civil War series.

    [​IMG] Just finished shadow puppets by Orson Scott Card. We're back on track after the mediocre shadow of the hegemon.

    Just started Memory, Sorrow and Thorn by Tad Williams, so far so good (anyone here read it?)
