Re: What are you currently reading? Just finished World War Z by Max Brooks

Good, different, completely different than that action movie.

On to Emperors Blades by Brian Staveley.

Re: The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski - Who's reading with us?
What if I already read it and LOVED IT? Do I still get to join this club? lol

Dudes (male and female): this book rawks.  There is a reason the gaming community grabbed onto this title and created three gaming versions (Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt is out now and AWESOME).

Seriously well written book with a wonderfully created world to support it.


Gotta agree with Don, very enjoyable, made you sympathize very quickly with the characters (and hate)

Re: The Last Wish - Week 1 I like the fact that the world just seems to open up through the story. You dont get the feeling that the author is trying to info dump about the world, its just opening up through the story. Then your mind takes over and expands the world to fit all these people, creatures, societies. It has an old school feel to it, but also feels modern to me in the writing.

Re: The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski - Who's reading with us?
I'm up for a reread and discussion. The Lesser Evil is one of my favorite short stories, but I need to correct AzWings in that it's 5 short stories, not 7.  ;)

Whenever the weekly threads open (I'm guessing tomorrow?) I'll crack it open.


1.1 The Voice of Reason
1.2 The Witcher
1.3 A Grain of Truth
1.4 The Lesser Evil
1.5 A Matter of Price
1.6 The Edge of the World
1.7 The Last Wish

Re: "Love" or "Hate" books
One book that I and many others loved, but also many others have hated, is Mark Lawrence's Prince of Thorns. That seems to be controversial.

This may be just as true for other authors. Jezebel for example is utterly determined to take offense with Pat Ruthkiss. It's readership seemingly less so from the comments. He is upsetting to some feminists and makes no apology for it so fault is constantly looked for.

Jezebel? I for one detest all of Rothfuss's work and think it unoriginal drivel with no plot.

A lot of post-modern feminists find issue with books that they have never read, ala prince of thorns.
