    Halfway through 11/22/63 as well(my library sourced this instead of Wind Through the Keyhole, wife said "new Stepen King" this is what I got). The readability of Stephen King is second to none, imo. Duma Key was a little thin and the Last Tower book was as well. I believe King was faced w/his own mortality(getting run over tends to do that), and fired through the end of Dark Tower, just to please the fans and to not leave it unfinished.

  • Ploughing through some Nietzsche. Wow, quite vitriolic!
  • Dark Moon Rising by Raven Kaldera. Wonderful book if you have the stomach for it.
  • @Xander My favourite fantasy books, excluding LOTR,

    The Demon trilogy by Terry Brooks

    The Many Coloured Land, 4 book series, by Julian May

    The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, the unbeliever by Stephen Donaldson

    G of T seems pretty good - I've not made up my mind as to whether I can still get through this type of book anymore or if I lost the knack at 18 when I finished the last Covenant book. When he brought out the last couple of books rounding the Covenant series off I just felt like I had wasted my time.

    I read the LOTR so many times, and was in the Tolkien Society at 11 that all I can do these days is read my favourite bits, I just can't get through it from cover to cover again.
  • I just finished The Child Thief.
    A dark Adult version of Peter pan.
    Surprisingly good
  • The Brothers Karamazov - Dostoyevsky 
  • Halfway through Walden......or life in the woods but im really struggling with it now and i picked up Richards Laymon's Travelling vampyre show yesterday so i may start it later and return to Walden when its done.

    The Lyonesse trilogy by Jack Vance.

    Also wading through a geology textbook, because I've always felt that when you stop learning, your mind starts dying.
  • Stephen King's 11-22-63
  • @googlebomb inpatiently waiting for the paperback of 11-22-63........in the meantime reading Richard Laymon's The travelling vampyre show
  • @simongrant I'm only about a quarter of the way through 63 and so far so good. The Traveling Vampire Show looks like it would be a good book. Who else do you read? I've been thinking about giving the new Koontz book a try some time right off.
  • Alhazred by Donald Tyson
  • A Feast for Crows, George R.R. Martin

    @googlebomb The travelling vampyre show is a blast,only the 2nd Laymon book i have read the other being midnight tour which is part of the beast house trilogy. As for who i read it is mostly Mr King. I have read the first three Odd Thomas books by Koontz and all three were great. Have you tried anything by Brett Easton ellis? I have read American Psycho and Less than Zero,what a very talented man indeed,both books had me gripped but i can't say why,very very weird but brilliant with it.I need to buy more Ellis titles although there arent that many.

  • Fragile things. By the brilliant Neil Gaiman
  • bobbob Member

    I prefer the dull Neil Gaiman personaly (that's of course a joke)

     

  • I'm finishing up the third book in the Hunger Games trilogy. Pretty catchy storyline and likeable characters.
  • Beyond Exile, sequel to Day by Day Armageddon by J.L Bourne, also Game of Thrones.
  • bobbob Member
    yeah but you realize all these stories are just rip offs of the first story told around fires when people lived in caves. (sorry had to make fun of haters for a second).
  • They are all good against bad when you think about it, just different vehicles for that. I'm a sucker for zombie stuff:) 
  • bobbob Member

    that is true. When I saw Game of Thrones and Hunger Games and remembered people saying they're both already been done. And I thought wow people can't you tell that a plot outline is not a story and that the same plot outlines have been in use forever. It's like saying that all rocks bands that write love songs are not orginal because look someone else already wrote a song about being in love and played it with guitars bass and drums.

  • @simongrant No, I haven't had a chance to check out Brett Ellis until just now. I looked him up and read an excerpt from Imperial Bedrooms. I'm hoping to find a copy of his American Psycho at my local book store this coming Friday. Have you read anything by James Patterson?
  • Finished 11/22/63 and loved it.  I've read some reviews that were critical of the ending (which is typical with King's books), but I thought the ending was very well done.

     

    Stephen King - The Dead Zone

  • The Chronicles of Narnia. I bought the whole set in one volume, this is one series I never read as a kid, I was more a Tolkien buff, but really bloody good read actually.

    You're in for a treat Stephan. I read those before I was old enough for Tolkien (Hobbit at 11, LOTR at 14) I think I had to "graduate" to Tolkien, so the Narnia books I read the year or so prior.
    Now I've said above, fantasy just seems dull to me since Tolkein with the exception of the Game of Thrones stuff which is newish, but Narnia will always have a place in my heart.
    I hope your collected edition puts them in order of publication and not that nonsense psuedo-chronological versions that were out not long back. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe should be first and the Magician's Nephew shoulkd be sixth. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader was my favorite and the Last Battle was rubbish, I wish I hadn't read it, becuase I can't unread it.
  • Stephen King's The Stand
  • @xander, The Magician's Nephew is 1st. I'm about half way through it. I think The Lion Witch and the Wardrobe is 3rd, I'll have to check.

    @googlebomb The Stand is a bloody good read, I think it's my favourite Stephen King book.

    "The Stand" is one of maybe three books that I've read more than once. It got me started enjoying "post apocalyptic" types of books and movies.   
  • The Stand is very good, but, personally, I think "It" is the best thing King has ever written.
