I've seen the films but I've been meaning to buy a lot of books. Perhaps I could borrow books from the library as that may be the cheaper alternative.:p:

A lot of would be quite money consuming, I think there's something like 150 novels in total...I normally just read them in the big Waterstones in London. That way I get to read the new ones as they come and Waterstones are even kind enough to provide me with comfy sofas :cool:

I think my first post was somewhere around page 100, which is still about 250 pages ago:eek: Looks back in nostalgia..:p:

How is everyone today? Two textbooks that I ordered just arrived, and even the first few chapters of them scare me

Brisingr by Christopher Paolini
The Magicians Apprentice by Trudi Canavan
The Lies of Locke Lamora and Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch

Wow! Loved all of these, definitly recommend them to you guys if you haven't already read them.

Brisngr wasn't great I didn't think but still worth the read. Not much seems to happen to be honest and it's pretty slow paced. Though you have to read it if you've read the previous books anyway.

The Magicians Apprentice is a must if you've read Trudi's Black Magician Trilogy. Not as good as the trilogy of course, but it takes you back into that world, and it was nice to be back.

The Lies of Locke Lamora and Red Seas Under Read Skies were probably the best books I've read in a long time. Such clever plots, you think you have worked out what's going to happen but it suprises you constantly. After reading the reviews for both of them and noticing the difference between the two I was hesitant to read the second book just because I thought I'd be really dissapointed. But really enjoyed it, even if it wasn't as good as the first still a great read. Can't wait for the next installment of the Gentlemen ******* Sequence.

Not read any of those I keep meaning to read Brisingr - I feel I owe it to Eragon and Eldest.

I have to admit I do have a fondness for Trudi Canavan's books. Haven't read the others but I'll try and give them a read when I find some spare time

I finally got hold of some sci-fi at uni. I'm reading Arthur C Clarke's Collected Stories; so far they've been OK but nothing special, however they are in chronological order of publication so you would expect the earlier ones to be a bit weaker.

Of the Arthur C Clarke that I've read, I really enjoyed it. I had the anthology called, "Of Time and Stars."
