  1. Dont know if you saw that Bronn, thought it might interest you. I still havent finished Red Skies... built a computer recently and have been wasting my free time gaming, need to get back to it
  2. I watched it a while back and enjoyed it. Shocker is right, it does get a little convoluted, but still overall pretty good
  3. Love that we are investing in the OL! I wanted DE and OT in the first and 2nd, Hurndog delivered, color me optimistic. what'd we give up to move up?
  4. Welcome to Carolina Brian! Yall should chill with the Everette Brown comparisons, try a little optimism sheesh
  5. I stopped watching after s4 I think... at the time I still had a glimmer of hope that another book would come out, lol me. Eventually Ill break down and finish the show
  6. So, are any of you ASoIaF readers and not watchers of GoT? I've had an easy time avoiding any spoilers the past few years, but this season seems like its gonna be a struggle... just random thought of the day
  7. I really enjoyed it, been meaning to do another play through, just havnt had time
  8. damn, has it been nine years already, how time flys when youre havin fun
  9. That happened for me reading Realm of the Elderlings books, got insufferable at times, but that got better in the second trillogy. Im still looking forward to KKC. Been busy lately so my reading time has been cut quite a bit, still on Red Seas and still enjoying it.
  10. I'm planning on reading either Mistborn or Stormlight once I finish with the Bastards and then on to King Killer since its been on my list a while. Let us know how you like Kingkiller once youre into it. So many books on my list, I need to get another kindle.
  11. Took a little break, but I'm starting Red Seas Under Red Skies now. From the opening chapter I feel like I'm about to read Oceans 11 set in Atlantis, should be interesting. I figured the guild of Bondsmagi were going to be a significant factor going forward. Don't think they'll appreciate the treatment the Falconer recieved.
  12. Finished up The Lies of Locke Lamora. Overall great book, definitely a page turner, the story never bogs down as happens often in fantasy. The gangs schemes are fun to read and the plot kept me guessing at the villian and their motivation (And then cursing that I should have seen it.) Anyone looking for somthing with Fantasy, Mystery, Schemes and Adventure should enjoy - even if not wanting to read an entire series, TLoLL is a complete story in itself. I'm looking forward to the next adventure of The Gentleman Bastards.
  13. * Spoilers for Lies of Locke Lamora * Don't read if youre planning on reading the book yourself So, I'm about 2/3's through the book now. poo has officially hit the fan. I hate to say, I saw a lot of this comming... Locke wouldnt heed my warnings and gtfo out though, Bastard! When the Grey King had the first meeting with Locke I knew this had to about Locke, not the Capa. Locke had that feeling of recognizing the GK but not being able to place him and knowing all about the hideout under the temple... gut said, they're getting con'd. My first suspect: Sabetha. Then what happened to Nazca... Ok, this is about more than robbing them, GK could have simply done that. I don't know what went down between Locke and Sebetha but, she is out to utterly destroy the GBs. Or, I could be way off and its not her at all, but thats my going theory. And I'll have to pour three glasses to air tonight. Also, damn Capa Barsavi, a keg of horse piss. I can't even be mad at him for it. And I dont think Locke's luck changing soon, desperation is about to drive him right into the spiders web. Any * End Spoilers * Looking forward to see how things pan out Edit: I was very wrong it seems
  14. A lot of the time thats for the best, the fantasy setting has given the the city and world a very interesting feel but no magical cop outs for problems. Also since Ive just been reading TLK books, Uhtred is always lamenting about how the Romans were such great builders and how his people could never hope to reproduce what they could do, and how people were even too superstisious to live in Roman ruins at times. I was reminded of that with the description of the Broken Tower, they have this beautiful damaged glass tower and they can only patch it with wood and stone, showcasing just how crude their ability is compared to those that came before. Its not a huge plot point or anything but it adds nicely to character and mystery of the world - it even apparently took centuries before the rulers of this city would move into those towers because they feared who'd built them.
  15. I'm about 2/3's through LoLL now and things are really heating up. I'm worried for the Bastards. Lamora may be too clever for his own good again, the heat is on with this Grey King and then Capa Barsavi's request regarding Nazca, all that and the mysterious person... or thing thats been shadowing them. And I'm sure someone gave kid Locke the sage advice of clutch once and run, clutch twice and swing, but he's determined to continue on with the Don Salavari job. Just have a bad feeling the gang is going to pay a price. So far the fantasy elements have been very low key, but its made an interesting enough backdrop. The elderglass, the towers etc, and the city being the work of some forgotten race. Hope that all gets expanded on more. Anyway, Im hooked. Anyone else thinking of jumping into a series, this one is worth a look. So far its kinda like the Faceless Men from ASoIaF, Skyrims Thieves guild, Sawyer from Lost, and the Godfather blended up.
