What's everyone reading?


Recommended Posts

I'm reading Without Remorse by Tom Clancy and The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan.

Eye of the world is a great read! the first book in an extremely long but wonderful series. The wheel of time is simply outstanding, and was completed by Brandon Sanderson (who consequently is my favorite author!) You're in for quite a ride!

The Wisdom of Insecurity by Alan Watts. I can't even describe how good this book is (and it's a lot more interesting/readable than I expected it to be, since philosophy isn't my strong-suit).

I actually just started The Wheel of Time series with The Eye of the World. It's pretty interesting so far. Kind of a LotR and GoT mix.

You're in for a long haul.  Totally worth it, IMO

I'm not sure if I'll be in for the long haul. It's good but at this point it's kind of fluffy. They're just running constantly and there's not a lot of explanation. But it also doesn't have the character depth yet to make that okay, like GoT. There are topics in GoT that have never been answered, but the characters are engaging so you don't mind the loose ends.

 I absolutely loved the Wheel of Time Series, I believe the only downfall to it ends up being what you call the fluff. The only thing I dislike about Robert Jordan's writing style is that he over-describes things. Its really awesome for author's to go into intricate detail about some things, but I think Mr. Jordan went a little overboard with that some times.

Finished 4HWW. Picked up Wild Cards vol 1 and Mistborn at the used bookstore Saturday.

Mistborn is an incredible read by one of my all time favorite authors. definitely check out everything else BRandon Sanderson has written... with the exception maybe of elantris... I think that is the one book I've ever started to read, and just couldn't finish it. I'm a little bit odd like that. I feel guilty if I start a book and get more than a few pages in and don't finish it. I almost feel like I'm betraying the Characters by putting their lives on permanent pause.

I found that the last third of Elantris was great.  I had to start it three times before I got there.  But I agree with Valerius' assessment.  Read everything by Sanderson.

Good to know -- definitely going on my New To Me list.

Looking forward to starting The Tao of Pooh tonight after work/ after school.
