> That's a pretty big stretch. I mean sure you've got the whole evil Empire and rebels thing, but it's vastly different otherwise. <br> <br>I highly suspect that the main character is actually the son of the big bad guy, ala Luke and Darth Vader. <br> <br>Also, you've got the guy who finds him and gives him his first bit of training (Obi Wan), who then takes him to the wizened old elf dude (Yoda) for further training. <br> <br>> I dunno. I enjoyed it, and it is one of the few decent books I could think of that was about a nobody becoming a some body. <br> <br>That's a pretty common theme for fantasy books. The whole Shanarra series by Terry Brooks comes to mind.

George RR Martin is a good read.

Balrahd 265 November 02, 2007 02:50PM

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

Lokain 251 November 02, 2007 02:52PM

Magician and Eragon are both good. (nt)

Cointreau 288 November 02, 2007 04:52PM

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

Isildur 264 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 263 November 03, 2007 09:27AM

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

Lokain 281 November 03, 2007 10:15AM

It gets better, second and third books are much better

ExPaladin 275 November 03, 2007 12:27PM

A few suggestions

RR Martin's work annoyed me

Randomizer 265 November 03, 2007 10:35AM

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

Lokain 259 November 03, 2007 01:06PM

Jordan and Martin in a nutshell [Possible Spoilers]

jegec 231 November 05, 2007 02:45PM

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

Balrahd 269 November 06, 2007 09:38AM

I could see that

jegec 287 November 06, 2007 12:18PM

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