Will start to read it either after I've finished Anathem, or I will have it as my 'portable' read (Anathem being a hefty tome, not for lugging around...). Either way I'll start reading it on Monday, earliest, but really looking forward to it!
I started the book and am really loving it. At first, I wasn't sure that the way it is written would hold my attention, but it has. I am only about 20% of the way in. I am probably the only person not to have read Harry Potter. Is this book similar to HP? I am thinking of reading some of those books as well.
It will probably take me a while to finish the book. I am wanting to check out the other postings, too, but I guess I better wait. What a great choice for a group read! Thanks so much!
GRRM = George R. R. Martin - I haven't read anything of his, but everyone who does RAVES about him.
JK Rowling is heavy on magic, heavy on symbolism, heavy on morality, with well drawn characters. Her books are also mysteries if you're into that. They get darker and less for kids as they go along.
#27 - You're most welcome. Let us know how the GRRM books are. I still have several series I want to finish before I start another one!
I was wondering if we should invite Patrick Rothfuss to the discussion since he's an LT Author? I haven't gone onto the spoiler thread yet (don't want to spoil my reading), but what does everybody think? It was so great when Brandon and Janny participated in the discussions of their books.
Personally I had to slog my way through the first 100-180 pages or so. I thought the writing style too elaborate, verging on strained. Now it have grown onto me, but I still think he uses too many words to get to the point. Not a bad read, though.
Won't check into the spoiler thread yet - same reasons as katylit!
I also was checking on Amazon today and it looks like the second book is coming out soon. Anybody heard any rumours about dates? There's nothing on Pat's site (which is why I was visiting).
I'm enjoying his style, he is certainly wordier than Cherryh - different writing style than her. I had to chuckle when I read your post Busifer. I really had to slog through the first part of Foreigner and yet this has been such a delight.
I think we have smiliarities in our tastes, yet enjoyably different too eh?
Actually, right now I have a hard time taking my eyes off the d***ed book, so I guess it's a good one, no? ;-)
I read it in bed last evening/night and barely noticed that my husband went to bed and fell asleep...
#34, clam, good idea, I'll leave an invite on both then, just tell him about the discussion with a link to the spoiler thread. He sounds a bit busy with touring, but doesn't hurt to invite anyways.
The President of Argentina received this picture and called it 'junk mail', 8 days later his son died. A man received this picture & immediately sent out copies..his surprise was winning the lottery. Alberto Martinez received this picture, gave it 2 his secretary 2 make copies but they forgot 2 distribute: she lost her job & he lost his family. This picture is miraculous & sacred. Forward to 1O people.
Hey, ilovejc... look at this picture!
I know we're supposed to ignore trolls and spammers, but I couldn't help myself.
Isn't there something on the Blog (maybe early on) that confirms this?
I'm too time-short to check blogs...I, too, really enthusiastically hope the sequels will measure up!
