Yes, I've seen the movies, and they really don't hold a candle to the books. Though, that's the way it usually is, as far as I'm concerned.

And also The Devil's Teardrop by Jeffrey Deaver (or any of Deaver's books... he's the man who wrote the book that the Bone Collector starring Denzel Washington was based on).

None of these are fantasy either... but I enjoyed them.


Dude, I camei nto this forum just to suggest Dean Koontz. Looks like you beat me to it. Great minds think alike.

Just want to reiterate whats been said about Robert Jordans Wheel of Time, its awesome.

10 books and counting. Start at the beginning or you will be lost. I found the first one a bit slow but it picks up and is well worth it.

KJ - I read all the Shannara books - was really into it as a teen. I loved the detail into which Brooks would go on scenery as I'm a very visual person. His writing always painted a vivid picture for me. Tried out the Magic Kingdom series and after 3 or 4 attempts on the first book I finally forced myself to finish it. Hated it, never went back to Brooks again. Though I was amused to find out that he wrote the novel version of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace for George Lucas.

If you're into sci/fi fantasy at all, you have to check out Piers Anthony if you haven't already. Very light hearted, much easier read, fantastic subtle humor. Pick up any one of them, they're all great, and generally unrelated to one another.

I also got into Allan Dean Foster a bit when I learned that he wrote the novel Alien on which the movie was based. I recalled the film being awfully gripping so tried the book and it was even scarier because you don't have that realtime fulfillment in under two hours. the suspense is crazy. Another book of his that I read was called "Sentenced to Prism" which was an amusing relation of a planet whose lifeforms are silicon-based (rather than carbon-based as here on Earth), and so things which appear to be inanimate crystalline structure may really be a moving, breathing animal - and these things FEED on carbon-based matter! So it's a pretty frightful place for a humanoid to be.

Another sci/fi book, REAL short (~ 200 pages?) that I want to try and find to read again was called The Veils of Azlaroc by Fred Saberhagen (out of print now). It's the story of a space traveller who visits a popular tourist pit planet called Azlaroc which is an amusing place because the planet is subject to the passage of "veils" which fall over the planet from some source in space. Once a veil falls over the planet, anything beneath the veil is "trapped" and essentially bonded with the planet, may never leave. An interesting side effect is that the more veils that separate any given object, the more difficult that object becomes to see & hear as if it is slowly fading from existence. The story begins to take shape when the traveller accidentally oversleeps, his tourist ship leaves without him and he is stuck on the planet as the next veil descends. So he spends his time determined to discover a method to escape the veil which is interesting because of course the greatest expertise on the planet are those who have been their the longest, but of course through so many veils over time, he can barely communicate with them as they're nearly phased out of his dimensional awareness completely. The thing ends up in some really wild Space Odyssey area that was well over my head as a teen, but I'd like to go back and give it another go now.

OH, ALSO: http://www.abebooks.com/ <- outstanding! (Hard to find and out of print books. Also services UK, Germany & France.

Wow, Sean... thank's for all the book recommendations!
I went to that link and found The Veils of Azlaroc for $1.00
That's a great price...

Wonder if I can find it in an old book store here?



I liked the Magic Kingdom for Sale series, but, I couldn't get through the 4th book. I think that I had just read them all, back to back, and it was too much for me.


All those books sound great, and I'm going to look in to getting those.
Great thing we have libraries, so that I can check them out. I could end up in the poor house (not that I'm not already there) if I bought every book that I wanted.

I have a few books from Oprah's book club, only by coincidence, I have not sought them out or anything. I have found most of them to be good reads and entertaining books.

But I wonder - is it a coincidence that all my Oprah Book Club books are about slavery or persucution of blacks, etc? I don't watch Oprah, so I don't follow the Club, but I just noticed that all my OBC Books are about blacks in some way.

Is this what Oprah does, pushes "black" books on to people?

Basically schmiggens, yes... to be honest, they have to be fantastic books if she pushes a white author... (Dave Peltzer comes to mind...)

I don't blame her though, a lot of black fiction is quite underrated. Some of the books are just stupid though... so it goes both ways...

Oprah recommends books that mean something to her personally. Since she is black, books about blacks appeal to her more. That is why there is a coincidence.

OMG I have not read that since high school, I loved it, I remember it being very very good, but I don't remember much about it. Just that the meaning of life was "33" and that everyone used to go around saying it and before i read the book I had no idea what they meant so I read the book. It was great.

I'm currently reading "Bridge of Birds" by Barry Hughart - very colorful story-teller. He seems to specialize his writings on the orient, especially China. I enjoy reading about eastern cultures, especially through folklore, and though I'm partly jaded that Hughart is just some American white-boy who is inspired having spent some time over-seas, I think his style is quite clever, he spins a great, well-thought tale, provides a perfect amount of detail when it comes to background information pertinent to the story, draws upon a fancy vocabulary (refreshing! ), and succeeds in transporting the reader to another time and place. Though written through the eyes of a westerner, his eastern tales are still most enjoyable, and I intend to pick up the other two books in this series to see where he goes next.

i like reading about history and war, especially WWII. i read this one book called War of The Rats and its the story of Stalingrad and the fight against the German invasion. if anybody has seen the movie Enemy at The Gates and really enjoyed it, then they should read this book. it goes in depth farther and is more detailed than the movie. i also just finished Fallen Angels which is about Vietnam. right now im reading Band of Brothers.

if anybody would like to recommend anything to me im all ears and would check it out.

I want to recommend Sara Douglass to you. She writes scifi/fantasy books.
Sara is from Australia, and wrote her books and they became popular, and then she hit the US. So, I got the advantage of reading the Axis Trilogy after it was already complete.

The Wayfarer Redemption or Battle Axe

One young woman, Faraday, betrothed of Duke Borneheld, learns that all she has been told about her people's history is untrue. Her land lies in the grip of a millennia-old prophecy pronounced by the Forbiden Ones. Gorgrael, the ice-lord, drives south with his demonic frozen army and the ancient Forbidden threaten to once more bring her people under their tyrannical rule.
Fleeing to safety from the dangerous land, Faraday rides with Axis, legendary leader of the Axe-Wielders--and hated half-brother of Borneheld. Faraday secretly loves Axis, although it would be death to admit it. She embarks on a journey, which will change her life forever, in search of the true nature of her people.

This grand and heroic story tells the tale of one woman's struggle to learn the truth and change the hearts and minds of her people forever. She fights against oppressive forces and will not desist until everyone knows the truth of the Star Gate.

Enchanter

The stunning sequel to The Wayfarer Redemption

Axis is a true hero, in every sense of the word. On his shoulders lies the double burden of prophecy and war. Having fulfilled the first part of the prophecy by becoming the StarMan, he now must reunite the three races inhabiting his world.

It is his destiny to lead an army against his evil half-brother, to regain control of Tencendor, once the greatest land in the world.

It is his destiny to be caught between the two women he loves, one the epitome of gentility, beauty, and intelligence, the other a fierce warrior with a cunning wit.

And it is his destiny to be thwarted at every turn by the vicious Goragel, an insane monster bent on destroying all that Axis works to preserve . . .

Enchanter is the riveting sequel to Sara Douglass's spell-binding first novel The Wayfarer Redemption, and winner of the 1996 Aurealis Award for Best Fantasy Novel. Sara Douglass has taken America by storm with this powerful tale of love, prophecy, battles, and revenge.

StarMan

Axis is the Starman of Prophecy and legend, destined to lead the three races of his world to unite as one people. The people of his world all know the Prophecy of the Destroyer, despite the failed attempts of the Seneschal to suppress it in the name of the god Artor the Ploughman, and it predicts and dictates Axis's path through war and destruction to the creation of Tencendor.

The Prophecy foretold that Axis would defeat his half-brother and lay claim to the land that Tencendor will be created upon. The Prophecy told of the traitor in Axis's camp -- Faradays champion, Timozel.

And the Prophecy foretold many a choice that Axis must make in order to fulfill his destiny . . . but neglected to mention the choice between the beautiful and courageous Faraday, his late half-brother's wife, and the feisty and hauntingly enchanting Azhure.

To Faraday, he had pledged his love and a place by his side as ruler of Tencendor; to Azhure, he had given his children, his time, and his devotion.

His love for both women is what the last twist of the Prophecy relies on. While Azhure explores her newfound powers as an Icarii Enchantress, and Faraday replants the ancient forests of the Mother, the evil Gorgrael is plotting Axis's downfall, invading the sky with ice and terror and the flesh-hungry Gryphons. His most daring move is to follow prophecy, to taunt Axis with the pain of his beloved.

But which beloved woman will Gorgrael choose . . . and will she be the one whose death will distract Axis from saving the world?

I wish I could appreciate Fantasy novels again. Ever since I finished the Shanara series, I've tried picking up books from other authors only to find them lacking in substance, or covering the same old, same old with different names and faces.

And authors who make up hard-to-pronounce names drive me up the wall. "I am Throglwnn-ee, leader of the High Command and heir to the Stones of Elvish Power.." - whatever

Aside from Tolkein's works, what's out there containing Elves and Magic, but which contains true depth, thought, and clever writing style?

All works by J.R.R. Tolkien are wonderful as are the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling.

The Witching Hour, Lasher, Taltos by Anne Rice. Wonderful and spooky story of the Mayfair witches. Wonderful. She also wrote Servant Of The Bones that is quite good.

The Stand by Stephen King. Still one of my favorites.

The meaning of life in Hitchhikers Guide is '42'

My top three books of all time would probably be:

1. LOTR - Tolkein
2. Rainbow Six - Tom Clancy (absolutely amazing book - should be made into a film, would thoroughly reccommend it to anyone with a similar character to TearUUp )
3. The Beach - Alex Garland (also an incredible book, the film just doesn't do it justice at all!!)
