Re: What book are you currently reading?

Been a while. Have read:
"Mistress of the Empire", "Prince of the Blood" and "King's Buccaneer" by Feist.
"Temple of the Winds" and "Soul of the Fire" (currently reading) by Goodkind, Sword of Truth series.
"Why We Get Fat?" by Gary Taubes, which is a very good, simple book about food, diet, obesity and diabetes.

Also, just started "The Waste Lands", book 3 of the Dark Tower by King.

I might pick up that Taubes book.

At the moment reading through American Gods by Neil Gaiman (awesome book, highly recommended).

Re: What book are you currently reading?

Nah, I picked it up after seeing that HBO was making a series based on it so I thought I might as well read it first. But it's so great, I love the concept. I'm only half way through it so far, the part where Shadow leaves Ibis and Jacquel's Funeral Parlour.

Well recently, The Hunger Games. I've just started a day ago, due to the fact my cousin will with-hold my Mp3 hostage if I don't.

That book is more than the shit. Everyone should read it.

But not to break the rules, I am working through the Serpent War Saga of Fiest's Riftwar Cycle, having read Shadow of a Dark Queen and Rise of a Merchant Prince and about to start Rage of a Demon King. Also, I"m reading LotR for the tenth time.

What?

Re: What book are you currently reading?

Hell yeah. I read this Spartacus book (Swords and Ashes) not long ago. It was alright, but it didn't get the personalities of the characters right (since they're based on the show) in my opinion. I'm about to start the Stealing the Network series though. That's supposed to be a good one. Then, there's this other book called One Second After. I may start that one soon too.

edit: LoTR. Hell. Yeah.

Born to Run by Christopher McDougall.

Amazing book about ultrarunning, written really well. About manly people who run 200miles and shit, up mountains and canyons and shit.

Now reading Prince of Thorns. Oddly pretty bad-ass.

Prince of Thorns (The Broken Empire #1)

Re: What book are you currently reading?

If the books are anything like HBO's adaptation, then I suggest you try to find something that isn't shit.

Re: What book are you currently reading?

Buy? Don't you have libraries where you live? Can't understand why more people don't appreciated the ability to get borrow books for free. I only buy if they are worth re-reading now.

Uh, hm. Where was I?

Annoyingly, it appears my Library lost their copy (or got stolen) to Shards of a Broken Crown, which would have completed the Serpent War Saga portion of Feist's Riftwar Cycle. So I've moved on - read Krondor The Betrayal and about to start Krondor the Assassins, books one and two of The Krondor Legacy in the same world. They aren't all that good...

Read books nine and ten of The Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind, Chainfire and Phantom respectively. Story is still pretty good but he's bogging it down with philosophy and just endless conversations (one took about 140 pages to complete). Don't see the need, but since Confessor is the last one, might as well finish it. Just have to go pick it up.

Reading Last Light of the Sun by Guy Gavriel Kay. Good story, but apparently in a world he's written a few stories in so you don't get the benefit of history or explanation. Should go back and find The Sarantine Mosaic. They are apparently stories that use a historical backdrop that he alters to fit his needs - some deem it Historical Analogue fiction. This one takes heavily from Viking invasions of ancient England. Recently read Tigana which does a similar thing, but with medieval Italy... and he adds magic, too. He's a good author.

Also trying to get to Wolves of the Calla, book five in the Dark Tower, which, of course, is excellent and should be on everyone's reading list.
