A Novel Approach

Postby manekochan » Tue Jan 26, 2010 1:45 pm

What are your favorites? What are your least favorites? What are you reading right now?
Brock: Honestly, Hank, where do you pick that stuff up? I never see you read!
Dean: It's weird, right?
Brock: It's like he channels dead crazy people!

I love ANYTHING written by Guy Gavriel Kay. Tigana was my first read and my favorite. The Lions of Al Rassan was also good as well as the Sarantine Mosaic Series (Sailing to Sarantium and The Lord of Emperors) and Last light of the Sun. The first, Tigana, is fantasy (all his genre are), but the Lions is all about European culture and religious struggles for power, The Sarantine series is about Rome/Byzantium and Last Light is Viking/Nordic in nature. He does a beautiful job. His writing is very descriptive and classy. I highly recommend his books. :love:

Currently, I'm reading The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, courtesy of Vault. [smile]

I like Terry Pratchett and Kim Harrison. Favorite books right now are The Nation and For a Few Demons More.
Least favorite books? ... I kind of was bored to tears by Mansfield Park the first time I read it. I love Jane Austen, but that thing... I recently re-read it to see if I was just hurrying through it in '01, but, no, it was boring as hell. And long. Boring and long. That's an awesome combination... yeah...
Reading right now? a book I've already read. It's not very good.

I've always been a big fan of the novel approach Toy Biz came up with to increase the value of their individual figures while finally getting large-scale figures into our favorite toy lines.

The only reading I get to do these days are Textbooks, White Papers, and service manuals. Any interested in 657 pages on "The Computer-Human Interface"?

I'm reading Under The Dome, King's new book. Fantastic so far, but I'm only about a third through it. It's one of those 1000 page beasts.

After that, I have to grab the Richard Castle book Heat Wave. This ties in with the show Castle, and I'm hoping it's actually a pretty good book and not just a marketing gimmick.
