The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
Royal Assassin by Robin Hobb

Gormenghast by Mervyn Peake

Mao, by Jung Chang.


When you finish it, tell me about Gormenghast,please,Ampersand :)!

Are you liking the Alaizabel Cray's one? It wasn't my favourite from the author;I prefered the first book of his trilogy,once,in the second one,he kinda of became too much gore.

I preferred Poison by Chris Wooding, I got into that one more. Alaizabel Cray's a bit of a creepy read for wimps like me. :D

Gormenghast is good so far (I'm on the first book of the trilogy), but my little sis has already read it. She said the third book spoils everything a bit, with the modern-ish setting that doesn't really fit at all, and Titus is a rather bland pathetic hero. :o But I like Gormenghast so far, the atmosphere's great and the characters are grotesque but interesting. The book seems to be big on description and small on actual plot, but with prose as good as this I don't mind too much. :D

Do you like Gormenghast Pipolinne? :)

Reading can be way better than games, and dare i say it, movies...actually pretty much always better. The only games I play is Tomb Raider which I only play like 1 month or til I finish the game, and now I'm getting pretty sick of playing Legend so bye bye gaming for a while.

And I'm not so much into movies, sure I watch once in a while.

I was curious about it,once I'm getting a bit sick of books who associate Fantasy with Elven!At the moment, I don't even need to read a book untill the end,in order to know if it's a good, a medium or a bad copy of Tokien :vlol:! It's becoming rather boring,and Gormenghast seems to be quite different,Ampersand :)!

Yes, it is quite. It's one of the few original fantasy works out there, one of the 'classics' alongside Tolkien. It's a dark fantasy, though the end of the trilogy's a bit sci-fi and seems way out of place. But Mervyn Peake certainly has an amazing talent. :)

im reading: The Historian
by Elizabeth Kostova

About the book
Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters addressed ominously to 'My dear and unfortunate successor'. Her discovery plunges her into a world she never dreamed of - a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an evil hidden in the depths of history. In those few quiet moments, she unwittingly assumes a quest she will discover is her birthright - a hunt for the truth about Vlad the Impaler, the medieval ruler whose barbarous reign formed the basis of the Dracula myth. Deciphering obscure signs and hidden texts, reading codes worked into the fabric of medieval monastic traditions, and evading terrifying adversaries, one woman comes ever closer to the secret of her own past and a confrontation with the very definition of evil.

At the moment I'm reading "the stargate conspiracy" partly out of interest and also partly for research on TR:REBORN, It's very detailed about the strange goings on centred around Egypt.
