Going to start The Fifth Miracle by Paul Davies probably tomorrow.

I just finished Merde Actually, by Stephen Clarke. It's kind of a Bridget Jones-ian take on French culture. It seems like it'd be boring and I started with skepticism, but the author is damned funny and I ended up reading all 448 pages in about six nights. It's really funny if you've spent any time with the French and know about their bizarre ways. :-b

Yes, they are good books. The first one is a bit childish at points, but the second one is written a lot better, because paolini wrote it when he was older. I definitely recommend reading the series.


If you guys like that kind of stuff, I highly recommend "The Sword of Truth" series, by Terry Goodkind. I'm currently reading "Chainfire" (book 9). These are some great books. I like the genre, but by no means is it the only genre I read. My Dad, on the other hand, usually doesn't read this genre at all, and he is completely hooked on this series. At the very least, you have to read the first book... "The Wizard's First Rule".

Knapp, I've noticed that you and I share a lot of the same opinions when it comes to movies and music and such. Give this book a try, you won't regret it.

Oh, BTW... these books are "R" rated (for violence, not sex). They are definitely NOT children's books.


I have the exact same taste as you do josebach.
The Eragon series is great, waiting for the next book eagerly. And great call on the Sword of Truth series.

I just finished reading "The Book of the Dead" by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child. Features a FBI agent Pendergast, a modern day "Sherlock Holmes". They've written several books with this character. Great read!

And for the fantasy readers, George RR Martin's A Song of Fire and Ice is a captivating series. He's done 4 books for far. Very in-depth, especially with the character development.
