Not sure if that's sarcasm or not because I hear 4 and 5 are relatively slow...



Chill, no sarcasm intended, simply asked for your thoughts after finishing the entire series.

Well I finished 4 and it was really slow, although there were some good moments.

R.I.P Ray Bradbury.

Ray Bradbury, the author of classics such as “Fahrenheit 451,” “Something Wicked this Way Comes” and “The Martian Chronicles,” died Wednesday morning in Los Angeles at the age of 91.

Bradbury’s daughter confirmed the death of the legendary science fiction writer to the Associated Press Wednesday morning.

Thanks Ray............

Is Bakker worth reading? I don't know anyone who's read him and I've heard he tends to be even bleaker than Martin.

From copies sold(over 14 million), a feature movie made and generally good acclaim and numerous awards, I would assume the Percy Jackson Series could get a mention on the lists ?

Also, Game of Thrones ?

Yeah, skipped my mind that Game of Thrones was the title of the 1st book, and not the series !! :facepalm:

Where's American Gods by Neil Gaiman? It's a glaring omission.

yes! What a great book. I suppose maybe it was overlooked because of how much it departs from the usual tenets of the genre.

Sorry for this exceptionally late reply. Yes, Bakker is definitely worth reading. I don't know about being bleaker than A Song of Ice and Fire, but The Prince of Nothing trilogy is certainly less immediately accessible. But stick with it and it's a very rewarding, if depressing read.

Just finished the first book of A Song of Ice and Fire and it was excellent. I´m really looking forward to read books 2 and 3. However, I have read that books 4 and 5 are not that good. Should I read those books? Or maybe is a better idea to read the summaries from the internet?

Reading the summaries is never a good idea. Just read the damn books.
