Reading Matterhorn after seeing a lot of reccomendations. Pretty good, but not necessarily living up to the hype. Really long too.

Im working my way through "The Difference Engine", as I have been on a Steampunk kick. Pretty good so far.

If anyone can recommend some more Steampunk I am looking for recommendations.

Pretty good. reads way more like a thriller than a sci-fi novel. It's terse and features well-defined characters. a little over the top, but not bad. Easy read.

Started Reality is Broken but it didnt quite hold my attention. I've took enough psych classes to already know the stuff about 'flow' and 'motivation' she talks about in the first 50 pages.

started way of shadows instead.

Pretty damn good. Although there's alot of all too convient conciendences in the last third of the book.

I love the Night Angel trilogy from Brent Weeks. It is a little predictable at times, but it's still a fantastic read.

Keep at it. The book gets better as the story progresses. By the end you'll wish the book was longer.

Really enjoyed the first one, but felt the remaining two were sloppy - suffered from introducing too many new and uninspired characters, and were spread too thin by the remaining, tangental plotlines. Personally wish I'd stopped after Book One, but I'm a serial completionist.

That said, about 200 pages into A Game of Thrones. May as well use the off-season to catch up on some overlooked reading.

Sandman Slim by Richard Kadrey

Good stuff. Crime noir with a supernatural streak through it. Reminds me quite a bit of Charlie Huston's Joe Pitt novels.

Queen of Bedlam by Robert McCammon it has been excellent so far


His new book, The Five, is supposed to be amazing. It's not available as an ebook yet, unfortunately...might need to track down the dead tree version.

Finished World Without End. I didn't really like it much, pretty disappointing follow up to Pillars of the Earth IMO. No major overarching plot, lots of things with a lot of build up and no real pay off. Just pretty pointless overall.

Also started up David Dalglish's Half Orc series.

Finished:

And almost done with the 2nd one.

Pretty solid reads. For fellow Kindler's, the first book is free currently, and the rest range $1.99 to $3.99.

Have you read the Sorrow, Thorn, and Memory series by Goodkind? If so how would you say these stack up to that? And you went through all 4 Ice and Fire books already or you're just taking a break?

Haven't read anything by Goodkind. I finished the 4 Song of Ice and Fire a couple months back.

I'd liken Dalglish to someone like R.A. Salvatore. It's pretty light, action packed fantasy. Quick, entertaining reads, but not a lot of deep history/mythology to the world (even less than Salvatore, so nothing like Martin or Tolkien etc.). But not bad at all for an indie writer and the cheap prices.

Not really all that great, very little mystery there and not quite dark/noir enough for my tastes.

Just got done reading James Franco's Palo Alto

A collection of short stories about teenage angst and shit, pretty good read.

Franco has a shit load of potential, only drawback is he has no differing voice narrating the characters in the book.

Character A sounds like Character C, who sounds like Character E sometimes.
