I'd like to think of myself as a fantasy and Sicence Fiction expert
I'll try and list some stuff no one else has posted yet. Here goes =P
Some Fantasy for u.The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher
- is a great combination of detective story + fantasy. His characters and plot lines are really very good. The humor is great, espacially with harry being rude and offensive to just about everyone he meets. The Codex Alera by Jim Butcher
- A lesser known work of his. It's just as good as the dresden files, but in a diffirent way. The story gets much more gripping with each new book. I thought the series came to an end with the fourth book and was nicely satisfied. Now it turns out theres a fifth around the corner =PThe Black Magician Trilogy by Trudi Canavan
- Sonea would kick the crap out of Harry Potter
This has to be one of my all time favorite fantasy's. The story is great and the writers style works excellently. I also think it's a nice easy read which works in the favor of the book.
And some Sci-fi.Nights dawn trilogy by Peter F Hamilton
- Epic Sci-Fi. The concept it deals with is huge and mind blowing. The frist planet to be taken and the plot developments involving it is like resident evil on steriods
Has one of my favorite endings of any book.Hyperion by Dan Simmons
Another Epic sci-fi. It has this great sense of mysteriousness about it. The frist book is written very intrestingly, as it's broken down into the pilgrams side stories, explaining how they became involved. Each is so diffrent from the other and unique. I felt horrified by the priests story and cracked up at the poets
The sic-fi elements and ideas are top class. Why can't we have a world-web, new busido and FORCE?
Im Sorry about going over the 3 book limit, I saw the thread and thought 'oww, i must share my wisdom,' before i read the frist post properly. And my apolgies for my poor discriptive skills on why these books r good
