Re: What's your favorite fantasy book series?

I chose other. The Chronicles of Narnia. Any one of those 7 books>>>>entire hairy putter collection.

The Last Battle is the best book out of that series, followed by The Magicians Nephew.

Re: What's your favorite fantasy book series?

Oh OTHER OTHER OTHER OTHER OTHER etc

No offense OP, but there are many many better fantasy series out there. I haven't read most of those actually, but if you are including them with Harry Potter, it is an easy thing to guess at.

Now, nothing inherently wrong with HP - it started well. But on the whole, it isn't very good and fell apart with poor plot devices and writing by the last book. There is a reason I only own books 1-6. It will be something I recommend to young readers but only as a gateway to sate their reading. It is my marijuana book.

Some better fantasy series/trilogies/books:
Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis (7 books)
Everything by Tolkein (if you get over the Old English style)
The Fionavar Tapestry by Guy Gavriel Kay (3 books)
The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan (will be 14 books)
The Sword of Truth by Terry Goodkind (11 books)
The Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin (5 books with 2 to come)
The Ender and Bean series by Orson Scott Card (9 books to date)
The Shannara series by Terry Brooks (22 books with 3 more planned; a little more bubblegum than the ones above.)
The Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss (1 book with 2 to come... yeah, I know. Tough to put this in the list but Name of the Wind was so good. I am going on expectations.)

And of course, the works by Stephen King, Michael Crichton, George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, H.G. Wells...

Edit: can't believe I forgot Douglas Adams and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Read that shit. Now.

Re: What's your favorite fantasy book series?

as i read the list, i started to cry...

luckily ACt knows what's good. exception: narnia, not my cup of tea. i also agree with the HP criticism. Rowling followed the readers wishes in book seven. i expected more death. very disappointing.

but yeah, ACt's list. period.

Re: What's your favorite fantasy book series?

The book of three series is pretty good.

I liked the Xanth series by piers anthony a lot too, though by the end of it it was nothing but non-stop puns.

The Belgariad and the Malloreon by David Eddings were awesome companion series as well.

The pandemia books and the seventh sword by Dave duncan were also quite good.

Have to concur with Shannara, wheel of time, and sword of truth as well. Anything I've read by C.S. Friedman has also been quite good. Raymond Feist is amazing as well.
