Just finished:


You may want to take a break after Book 3; Book 6, the final volume in the series (at least for now) keeps getting delayed, and since Book 5 ends on a super intense note waiting and waiting and waiting for Book 6 has been painful.

I hope you're enjoying them, I was really surprised by how solid Carey's novels were. (Not as good, but he's also published a couple more mainstream thrillers under the pseudonym Adam Blake.)

The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan. I have heard enough great things about this series from friends that I decided to give the series a try. Although Robert Jordan passed before concluding the series, Brandon Sanderson concluded the series using material Jordan completed while still alive. So far so good, but it is 14 volumes long (15 if you count the prequel novella) so this should keep me busy for a while.

Ahh good to know. Yeah they are surprisingly solid reads and I occasionally encounter new words too, a rarity these days.

I´m reading 'Mercy' / 'The Keeper of Lost Causes' (US title) right now. Will see how I like it.

I´ve just finished reading 'Horns' by Joe Hill which was a great book.

After I´ve finished the book from Jussi Adler-Olsen I´ll try '11.22.63' by Mr. King.

I have 12 counting the novella (A New Spring) I have yet to pick up the final 3 hardcovers. I need to dig them out of storage and start the series over, I think I stopped reading them with book 5.

THE 1001 WAYS TO COMMIT SUICIDE IN AMERICA BY ADOLPH STALIN-I hear no one ever got to finish the book.[ha-ha]

"Pontius Pilate" by Paul Maier. This remains the finest and most intelligent novel I've ever read with a Biblical era setting because Dr. Maier's purpose is to enlighten the reader about the history of the era. As the finest Biblical era scholar I have ever read (his translations of Josephus and Eusebius are the most reader-friendly you will find), Maier's purpose is to take all historical facts that are known and use fictional mortar only to connect things. No character names are made up and the end result will enlighten you greatly about Roman and Jewish history of the era regardless of whether you are a Christian or not.

Maier's novel would make an outstanding cinema or television production. It's too bad no one's been willing to try it.

What's happened to the members of this board? Because Barnes & Noble are closing stores, are members slowing in their reading of books? Personally, I've always been slow to finish a book..


I've been slower to read than I'd like, but not nearly so slow as I have been in posting to this thread, or even checking it out.

Continuing from where my last post left off, some books I've read since last June (yeah, some of these I could have mentioned back when I posted in November, but I just didn't get around to it):

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, by Rebecca Skloot

Boarding the Enterprise: Transporters, Tribbles, And the Vulcan Death Grip in Gene Rodenberry's Star Trek (essays by various authors)

Star Wars on Trial: Science Fiction And Fantasy Writers Debate the Most Popular Science Fiction Films of All Time (more various authors. I haven't finished this one yet; I put it aside a while back and forgot to get back to it)

Time Scout, Robert Asprin & Linda Evans (the only novel-length fiction I've read in over a year, though I've also read some short fiction)

The Island of Lost Maps: A True Story of Cartographic Crime, by Miles Harvey

WINTER OF THE WORLD by Ken Follett (audiobook)

I thought the art of storytelling had died but in this book I see it still lives!
Fantastic writing and the reader is just great also!

How does it compare to Fall of Giants? I really enjoyed Fall of Giants.

I have also been pushing myself to finish A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire Book 5) and I am finally getting to the point where all the slow sections are worth it. The last 10th of the book or so is just insanely awesome. I'm pretty sure I'm close to the end but it is hard to tell just how close because Kindle includes the appendixes as part of the book for calculating percentage.
