I'm assuming there are where Jimboozie lives. I should have made it more clear that I was writing that as if I were JimB.

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.


You have great taste!!! ;-)

The only Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child book I read was Relic. Good book, horrible movie.

I just finished Phantom in the "Sword of Truth" series. I'm so bummed. I've read all 10 of those books in a row and book 11 (the final book) won't be out until 2008 sometime. How frustrating is that? Actually, it's not to bad because I'll just read the last few books again before book 11 comes. ;-D

I'm going to do the same thing with the Harry Potter books. I'll read all 6 of them again and time it so that I finish with book 6 right when book 7 comes out.

Currently, I'm reading a book called Archangel that a friend of mine recommended. Too early to tell if it's going to be good or not, though.

I'll have to check out those others you mentioned.

What an incredible book! I've enjoyed reading Koontz's matieral for the past 12 years but haven't enjoyed a book by him this much since Intensity.

For those who like the supernatural thrillers with a solid plot and funny characters this book is worth the read. I finished it in a couple of weeks (I'm a slow reader) and I'm getting ready to start Seize the Night which is the second book to "Fear Nothing". This is the first time (that I can remember) Koontz using the same characters for two books.


I'm a Koontz fan as well, have you read "Odd Thomas?" I absolutly loved that book. Odd Thomas sees the dead and helps some of them move on, I know what your thinking sounds like "The Sixth Sense." But its way different that that story. Fell in love with the main characters, I think I may have even teared up a little at the end. The plot twist to close the book is totaly unexpected. Koontz also wrote a sequal to this book using the same characters called "Forever Odd." I've read it as well but was a little dissapointed. It was still a good read but it doesnt hold a candle to the first.

Also I just finnished "Cell" by Stephen King, great book. I love world destruction or apocalyptic stories. Great read.

I'm currently reading "Post Office" by Charles Bukowski. as soon as I finish that I'm going to attempt to tackle the "Dark Tower" series by Stephen King. My girlfriend just finished the last book and said it was the best series shed ever read. Many of my friends have read it as well and say its awsome.

I haven't read Koontz in a while. I used to steal my Dad's Koontz books before he started going to the library to save money... damn library!!!

My favorite Koontz book was always Dark Rivers of the Heart.
