Hello all!

Fantasy fan from Norway here. The frustration of not having a single friend who reads fantasy has lead me here in hopes of finding someone I can discuss books with without boring them to death! :D

So, a little bit about myself. First fantasy books I read was (big surprise) the Lord of the Rings, but I didn't truly get into fantasy reading until I read the Riftwar Saga at the age of 15. Most recently I've read the Night Angel trilogy, Patrick Rothfuss' Name of the Wind (waiting eagerly for the second book to arrive in the mail), same goes for Brent Weeks' Ravens Shadow series and currently reading the Riyria Revelations and loving it!

I live in a small place in the middle of nowhere and we DO have a small library however the 'English Fantasy' section is limited to LOTR, Harry Potter and Fifty Shades of Gray >.>. So yeah, needles to say a lot of book shopping happens online.

For me, the most important thing in a book is that I'm given a character (or several) that I care about. If the main protagonist is dull and bland it doesn't matter how good the story is as I'm unlikely to finish the book. Also prefer books who throw you straight into the action. Spending the first 4-5 pages describing scenery is a big no-no for me.

So yeah, hope to have some interesting discussions on this forum as well as find some good book recommendations! :D
