I've added it to my list, thanks.

I also, suggest the Inheritance cycle: Eragon, Eldest, and Brisingr, by Paolini, but don't watch the movie Eragon it was pathetic and could have ruined the writer, he is taking a while on the last one. I knew nothing about the book when I read it and thought it was awesome.


Wasn't this the series of books written by a teenage boy?

Paolini was 18 when the first one was published I believe.

The Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn trilogy is great, and they get better with each novel. I'm actually re-reading them right now for the 3rd or 4th time. Tad Williams' other big series, Otherworld, is interesting too.

There's some great YA lit out there, as well. I highly recommend the Hunger Games trilogy. It's a near-future dystopia with elements of gladiatorial combat. Very quick read, but good nevertheless.

Wrong David Duncan and wrong series.

The one I like is:

he Seventh Sword
The Reluctant Swordsman (1988)
The Coming of Wisdom (1988)
The Destiny of the Sword (1988)

Born 1933.[/quote]

I'm re-reading some oldies at the moment, namely the LOTR.

I've also branched out to other fiction and I'm reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson. Only half-way through, but if the end game is as good as the opening--it will be a doozy. Too bad Larsson passed away, but at least he completed his trilogy.

I am currently reading:

The Great Book of Amber

All 10 Chronicle of Amber books from way back when.

I tell you what, the old stuff is still my favorite. Not so much scenic as character, character, character. Straight up storytelling, no fillers.

Am interested in rereading (#5 or #6 time) LOTR again, but having trouble getting full book at the library. (instead of the 3 separate books.)
Wish I had kept my old copy, but gave it away some time ago.
