General Discussion / Traditional easter meals
« on: April 19, 2011, 07:17:55 PM »
Hey guys!

I'm invited to my familiy's Easter brunch, and I want to bring something special!
Are there any traditional easter meals from your country which I can copy?
I really want to surprise them!

Any ideas/suggestions?  :)

I really really love that game!
Ezio is such a cool and exiting character and the soundtrack of this game is just amazing!!
And the best of the whole game - your assassin buddies!! How they jump from the houses and kill your enemies is so cool (sorry if this is brutal, but I love them).

I hope you enjoy it!

I would really like to see T'Telir from "Warbreaker".
This big colourful city with it's old statues and big parks may be a very interesting place to visit and live  ;).

I'm not going to lie, having NOT read Wise Man's Fear, it sounds like exactly the same list of unanswered questions I'd have after the first book...
Totally agree! ;)
Haven't read the Wise man's fear either, it looks like there are the same questions in the end...

Sorry to hear about Traitor Spy being disappointing... Trudi Canavan has just never lived up to that first trilogy *sigh* I hope she pulls it out of the bag with Rogue because she is such a talented author and nice lady in general.
I read many bad critics about the Traitor Spy, but I wanted to give it a chance, and I also hope the the next book is better...

Finished the Traitor Spy 1 - a bit disappointing but not bad.
And now... I will start the "Song of Fire and Ice 1" and I'm really excited, there are so many good critics about this book!

That's just what I mean!
When all his books are written like this, I think that will frustrate me...

Fantasy Book & Author Discussion / Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson

Has anyone read this?

What are you thinking about it?

I don't know exactly what to think about it... I mean I liked it - the magical system was something new and interesting for me also all the intrigues and difficulties and problems that have to be solved and for sure the characters - I really liked all that.
But the ending was so fast! The godking gets the commands for this stone warriors and thats it??
Or can we expect more  f.e. a sequel or something??

Fantasy Book & Author Discussion / Translations

What do you think about translations?

Do you think you have to read the original version if you are able too?
Or does it not matter?
Have you ever read a very bad translation?

For me its hard to decide whether to read/buy the original version or wait for the translation, because on the one hand I'm often too impatient to wait or the book is not translated (f.e. Mistborn!!) on the other hand english is not my native language and I'm afraid that I don't understand everything.

So you see, it's hard to decide... :(

Any tips?


I liked it very much, allthough my expactation was low, I wasn't disappointed!

Thank you P.V. Brett!

Well, I wouldn't say I hated it, but I definately got a bit bored reading it and it was one of my least favourite fantasy books I've read.  I have to say though, it's not my kind of fantasy because I like multiple characters, interesting magic systems, great world development, quests, magical beasts and lots of travel.  This book consisted mostly of Kyvothe going to a couple of places, being good at loads of things (as well as doing some stupid things) and generally getting on my nerves a bit because I didn't connect with him as a character, to the extent that I really didn't care what happened to him.  Also, although I'm not against long books, (I'm currently reading the Malazan ones) the pacing was too slow for me, not enough action and I didn't learn enough about the other characters in the book.  I have to say though it wasn't bad and it was well written, but for me the nice writing did not make up for the slowness of the plot.  I'm the same way with films, a book has to grab me at the start and keep me interested all the way through.  I finished this one, but it was a bit of a slog.

Better go hide now as the Kyvothe fans will be after me.   ;D   :P

You don't have to hide, because they can smite you even then! :D :D

I have to say I liked it very much, but it was not a perfect novel for me too.
There where some parts who were very slow and some parts seemed to me useless (the dragon part f.e.)

Sigur Ros are awesome :D
Wow thats the first time I met someone you know them!  :D

At the moment there is just one band in my playlist - Sigur Ros. I really like them, they are simply perfect for reading fantasy because of the fantastic language they sing. I can concentrate better on reading when I don't understand what they are singing.

When I'm not reading I listen to different types of music and styles.
For example Linkin Park (I'm one of these hardcore fans who also like there latest album), Pink, Yellowcard, 30 Seconds to Mars, Tom Petty and much much more. I also like movie and game soundtracks.
So you see my taste is very mixed up  :D

I haven't yet decided to buy the english version or wait for the german translation...
but the problem is that I even can't find a german title, so I don't know when it's released... :(

Fantasy Book & Author Discussion / Re: Are there too many Fantasy Novels?
« on: February 26, 2011, 09:44:21 AM »
Before joining this forum I didn't know how many good fantasy books there are.
With the help of you guys I read books I would never have picked up!
my boyfriend says I'm obsessive because I think about what to read next when I haven't yet finished a book.
In my opinion I just discovered a old passion!
Thank you!! :)
