    This was suggested, but the Sword of truth series was really good.

    I just read "Game of the Thrones" (George R.R. Martin) it was good also,
    same type of book as the sword.

    I never tried the omen machine. How is Debt of Bones? I could have gotten it the other day for 50 cents, but i hesitated.


    And this seems like a good place to post this
    Leather bound edition of the hobbit i got a few days ago.

    Have you read the newest Terry Goodkind Law of Nines? Wasn't bad, he is supposed to come out with a new Sword book also.

    I got like three quarters of the way through the Sword Of Truth series and got bored (I have the entire series on my Kindle as one continuous book). The characters are a bit shallow and I found I didn't care what happened next. Maybe I'll pick up where I left off at some point, but for my tastes it petered out.

    Name Of The Wind is different. I can't wait to see what Kvothe does next. And there's so many loose ends that need to come together--yet apparently have already come to some disastrous climax, with the older, diminished Kvothe telling his own story. I'm anticipating both a thrilling continuation of his remembrances and a kick-ass resurgence by the present-day Kvothe, culminating in a triumphant finish. Next summer is way too long to wait!

    Tom Clancy's books starting with Red October were good, but the books with other writers I put down and gave away.

    Wow. Not just me then... I thought pretty much the same thing.

    The TV series covers (with some changes) the first book and part of the second and I quite enjoyed it.

    I read Last Gasp(Don't remeber the author) was interesting 1980 or 70 thinking.

    The Wanderers (the movie sucked) was a fun read also. 70's late or 80's book on the 50's
    I added the years written because of mind thought at that time.
