I got it for Christmas and decided to read it because of the size (usually it means I get more engrossed into the book!) but had no idea of the storyline or anything. I loved it. A very good book, and while I could not possibly order my favourites it is definitely one of them!

For those who enjoy real, non-sparkly vampire stories, Anne Rice's 'Interview with a Vampire' is a must. The movie is pretty good, too.

I'm afraid I still read my books in dead-tree form - just finished a re-read of 'Wise Man's Fear' by Patrick Rothfuss - the sequel to 'Name of the Wind'. If you don't know them, it's quality fantasy, and you should read them.
Currently halfway through 'Elminster - making of a mage', a recommendation from my boyfriend. Not a huge fan so far, but then, I'm only halfway... I've been thinking of buying Mark Watson's 'Eleven' as my next read - no idea if it's any good, but it sounds kinda interesting, and I like his comedy.

Another recommendation for anyone who enjoys fantasy - 'The Fionavar Tapestry', a trilogy by Guy Gavriel Kay. Book one is called 'The Summer Tree'. You know all those fantasy books about the final battle between good and evil? Fionavar is the final battle.

So far, High Performance MySQL (which ended up not being required...but maybe in the next job) and a converted copy of jQuery in Action, which didn't convert all that well, sad to say.

Ugh.. Interview With the Vampire? That brings up the angsty bile from high school like a bad Monte Cristo sandwich. I also recently found my old IwaV comics from Innovation's back in the day. I'll probably set them on fire to keep that chunk of the past in the past.

I never thought I would actually like reading a non-paper book but I really enjoy reading on my iPad 2. The ability to change the font really helps when some of the print books have like font size 6.

1. Charlaine Harris - Dead Reckoning these books are the base for the True Blood show on HBO. This is book 11 and she is going downhill FAST. The books are EXTREMELY better than the show if you like it.

2. A Game of Thrones - Looked interesting but really hard to follow. Each chapter skips between a person and the book tries to weave them all together.

3. Wheel of Time Book 1 - Everyone says this series is just as good if not better than Lord of the Rings so I thought I'd give it a try. Haven't started it yet.

I've heard that Wheel of Time is really good at first, but that in the later books it starts getting somewhat repetitive... I've only read up till book three so far, though, so I can't really tell.

As I mentioned in my first post, they really do start to drag. But by the time they do, you should either be hooked from the really good ones in the beginning, or you should already realize you do or don't like the series.

This.

Both books in this series are brilliant, they grab you and you cannot put the books down. When I read Wise Man's Fear I was in the middle of a lot of coursework, so did not have much time to read. But I still managed all 990 pages in less than a week.
