Good evening, boys and girls. I've been stuck at home sick for about a week straight (Chicken pox, as embarrassing as that is to say out loud) so out of sheer boredom I've decided to make up a christmas list and was wondering if anyone had some good suggestions for some books to throw on there. Thanks in advance.
Knew you'd give me a good answer on this. You pretty much read my mind on the first two. I'll check out the other ones. Thanks, dude.
For a real timesink, try Ian Irvine's tales of three worlds. They're epic fantasy, usually involving magical artifacts with a dark, mysterious history. Eleven books so far, in three series, and a few centuries have elapsed.
You'll need a lot of time on your hands.
I love SH-5. Probably one of my favorite books, if not my favorite.
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
A Confederacy of Dunces
Haven't read any of the "escape literature." Going to take a look.
Ice Station by Matthew Reilly is pretty sweet. Not a dull moment. Still, haters gonna hate.
Thanks, Rommel. and c'mon madglee, where the hell are your recommendations? lol I was hoping for some good ones from you, bro.
Oh, I forgot. Best book I've read all year was Mogworld by Yahtzee Crosshaw. Its about some self-aware mmorpg characters in a beta test, when one of the programmers goes mad with power. It's pretty funny, got references to the absurdity of mmo features and some hilarious text messages between the real-world programmers.
Oh, and the protagonist is a zombie.
