Finished the 3rd Hunger Games book. Need something new. It was enjoyable, but almost morosely dark. Lots of dead and mentally damaged kids.
Like to get back into my favorite comfort zone of fantasy series', but I'm running out of good ones.
I once set out to read all the series in this book: Legends
Stephen King: "The Little Sisters of Eluria" (The Dark Tower) -Could never get past book one
Terry Goodkind: "Debt of Bones" (The Sword of Truth) -started out OK but i gave up around 7 or 8 books in
Orson Scott Card: "Grinning Man" (The Tales of Alvin Maker) -read the first 5 and meh.
Robert Silverberg: "The Seventh Shrine" (Majipoor) -Yet to try
Ursula K. Le Guin: "Dragonfly" (Earthsea) -read the trilogy as a kid, there are new ones now
Raymond E. Feist: "The Wood Boy" (The Riftwar Saga) -read a bunch, 6-7 at least
Terry Pratchett: "The Sea and Little Fishes" (Discworld) -Yet to try
George R. R. Martin: "The Hedge Knight" (A Song of Ice and Fire) -Amazing series, read all 5
Tad Williams: "The Burning Man" (Memory, Sorrow and Thorn) -Excellent trilogy, read all 3
Anne McCaffrey: "Runner of Pern" (Dragonriders of Pern) -Read 8 or 9 as a kid
Robert Jordan: "New Spring" (The Wheel of Time) -read all 15
I stalled out on Gardens of the Moon recently, I may try it again, but I'm also curious how good Majipoor and Discworld are. Discworld's been recommended to me alot, but usually described as humorous, and I cringe a little cause it sounds like Xanth which I did not particularly like. Any recommendations?
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.
