Looking for some new Sci/Fi or Fantasy novels.

David Eddings.

Wheel of Time is horrible. At least to me. I read it up until partway through book seven and realized that the characters were to retarded to continue.

It would have been a great series if it had ended at book three.

Read in the Raleigh paper about a new book out, Things We Didn't See Coming by Steven Amsterdam. The review is good, gonna check it out at the library. Also gonna check out The Road mentioned in the review, same author that wrote No Country For Old Men.

Be patient with "The Road"

It's not an easy read

I agree with this. The story simply isn't good enough imo to deserve 14 (or whatever) 1000 page books.

My post got lost in the server thingamaboo.

Ben Bova, Frank Herbert, Philip K Dick, Greg Bear, and William Gibson. They can range from easy reading to more in depth novels.

I disagree with both of you completely. But you might find it interesting that The WOT series was originally intended to be six books, but when Jordan got to the 5th book he realized there was no way he could give the story a proper ending in six books.

i don't think they are particularly poorly written (nor particularly well written) or anything, i just stopped caring.

Well I'm half way through the eighth book and I'm starting to have to chug through it. I love the story and most of the characters but RJ is soo long winded, it becomes a little bit of a chore to finish a book. I'm going to take a break when I finish this one.

But for reals people. Check this out.

I know, and it's been time well spent reading it, though once I finish the whole series I will most likely never read it again.

The Road will make you want to put your head in an oven. Just be forewarned.

Loved the road.

Thanks everyone! I'll start The Road after the Olympics on a don't-have-anything-else-to-do weekend. Good thing it's the off season.

My favorite fantasy series is the 'Song of Ice and Fire' by George RR Martin.

I have really enjoyed his stuff and he not afraid to kill of main characters which is refreshing...

This right here is the best fantasy ever.

Possibly the best fiction ever.
