I just picked up Cursor's Fury by Jim Butcher. Book 3 of his Codex Alera series.

I think Arthur in general suffers from what we saw in Game of Thrones they have to avoid fighting due to the sheer production cost (its alot of man power in make-up effects, horses and their handlers don't come cheap, or the combat choreographers to make it look good) its easier to not to film it
makes me worry about next season and the battle of Black Water
Hehe, it's OK. Eva Green was worth it.

Yeah, the whole battle between Rob Stark and Jamie Lannister and ESPECIALLY Tyrion's role in it being done off screen was a bit upsetting. But that's where they start from - I would guess budgeting will go up with the success of the first season. If we're lucky, they'll be able to drop a lot on Blackwater.

@ Kael - I have to think, with Martin still with a lot of control, that they'll make as many accommodations as they need to. There was too much attention given to the series, fan and critical, for anyone to want to drop it. The beauty of the story is it is so fragmented that they don't actually need everyone on set at any time.

I was referring to Camelot not having a second season. There's no way they won't do the next Song of Ice and Fire book.

Re: What book are you currently reading?

Camelot had a good fan support. Mibs/ACt's opinions of it aren't the majority. The stars' schedules won't work for the next season so Starz had to cancel it.

Re: What book are you currently reading?

Well, you can add my wife to that list. And probably anyone familiar with the Arthurian Legends. Such a shame. I mean really, look at this picture and tell me who best fits that casting:

Because I think Gwenevere. I can't imagine how anyone can watch him and enjoy it - does anyone find him attractive?

Anyway, now reading "A Darkness in Sethanon" the final book in the Riftwar Cycle by Raymond Feist.

Re: What book are you currently reading?

Finished "Moonwalking with Einstein" by Joseph Foer, which was about memory and what techniques people use to memorize crazy things like the random order of a deck of cards in under a minute. Rather interesting, though as I told someone on the subway when she asked, it isn't a self-help book that will improve your memory and the methods used actually take quite a bit of practice and work to master. Still, gives a lot of insight into how memory and the brain works.

Now reading "Daughter of the Empire", book one of the Empire Trilogy by Raymond Feist and Janny Wurts.

Re: What book are you currently reading?

Got done again with re-reading another book I've read before called "Beastly."
Honestly one of you could ya please recommend me something anything. Tired of re-reading some things. Books I use to get into in reading just arent that appealing to me anymore.

Reading "Blood of the Fold", book 3 in Sword of Truth series and lining up "Catch-22" (again), "The Extended Phenotype" by Dawkins and "Servant of the Empire" by Feist.

Re: What book are you currently reading?

mmmm I'm supposed to be writing an essay for my History class tomorrow needless to say A Dance With Dragons has been staring at me all weekend I keep fighting the urge to crack it open

anyone have a good recommendation I'll need something new to read after I crank this book out over Christmas vacation . . . Vaguely tempted to read some McCaffery books (never did finish them all) but I hear they get pretty hit or miss after your done with her originals
