George RR Martin is a good read.

It's the only fantasy book I'd recommend to non-fantasy, non-history people. <br> <br>If you like historical fiction/alternate reality, then I'd recommend Turtledove's misplaced Legion series - it presents an alternative reality take on the waning days of the Byzantine Empire.

George RR Martin is a good read.

Balrahd 261 November 02, 2007 02:50PM

Turtledove is good stuff. I liked Guns of the South n/t

Lokain 248 November 02, 2007 02:52PM

Magician and Eragon are both good. (nt)

Cointreau 285 November 02, 2007 04:52PM

Eragon was engaging, but I wouldn't call it &quot;good&quot;. txt

Isildur 261 November 02, 2007 06:10PM

Eh.

If he's a cry baby too, you're likely right :) nt

It's not surprising. The guy who wrote it is younger than most of us.

Sword of truth series is worth reading~

ExPaladin 260 November 03, 2007 09:27AM

I read the first half of the first one. Thought it was kinda floofy n/t

Lokain 278 November 03, 2007 10:15AM

It gets better, second and third books are much better

ExPaladin 272 November 03, 2007 12:27PM

A few suggestions

RR Martin's work annoyed me

Randomizer 262 November 03, 2007 10:35AM

If you were to insert Martin where you typed Jordan and vice versa

Lokain 256 November 03, 2007 01:06PM

Jordan and Martin in a nutshell [Possible Spoilers]

jegec 228 November 05, 2007 02:45PM

I know Martin is supposedly 7 books, but it reads like a trilogy right now IMO

Balrahd 266 November 06, 2007 09:38AM

I could see that

jegec 284 November 06, 2007 12:18PM

Now that you mention it, that's true for me, too.
