gets better until feast for crows.


so, i'm here now... :(

i read how this book was written, scrapped, re-written, split up, yadda yadda yadda... but i seriously have no interesting characters left in this book. i'm about 250 pages in and this one's just not nagging at me to be read like the previous three. somebody please tell me it's worth soldiering on. :D

If you are looking at reading some King, you have to read The Dark Tower series.

If you haven't heard of it, you need to check it out asap. If your into fantasy novels, King novels, or just good books in general, you will love it.

I have read 5 books in the series. It's damn good.

Glad you bumped this weymouth...


yeah hunger games just sounds like a modified combination of ender's game and lord of the flies


I just finished all three of the Hunger Games books earlier this week. Good reads, but a bit disappointing. Didn't care for the ending of each book... it just kind of stops and the end of the final book is a bit odd too, like she tried to wrap it all up too quickly.

I enjoyed it, but not the best series I've ever read either.

A pretty bleak look at the future of humanity.

I finally finished the third book this week... I feel the same way you did about the ending... She drug a lot of stuff out and then just chopped it all off at the end...

I'm currently going retro and reading The Giver, by Lois Lowry... lol

Still have these on my list for my next big reading after:

Gardens of the Moon and Deadhouse Gates by Steve Erikson

The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss

Earth Abides by George R. Stewart

Finished 'World War Z' last week... excellent. Then teh Kurb tells me they're making it into a movie... :party:

It's supposedly coming out Dec. 21, 2012.... so better catch it that day I guess. :D



About 2/3 finished with Scalzi's 'The Last Colony' now. Scalzi is awesome.

The 'Old Man's War' movie is supposed to come out sometime in '12 as well...

WWZ was awesome, can't wait for the movie

i finally picked up ADWD... glad to finally have my favorite characters back

but once i'm done, i'm not sure where i'm going to go next... started two books before breaking down and buying ADWD and just couldn't get into them. GRRM has ruined reading for me :lol:

which would you choose? the wheel of time or the sword of truth?

i'm assuming you've read everything that's come out to this point... is there at least an ending in sight? i know there's only one more (at least, supposedly) to be released...
