    Strange, I put off finishing Deathly Hallows to start my DT reread I'm sorry, I just couldn't ignore the pull of the beams.

    I'll be done with HP pretty quick. I read 150+ pages in an hour or so the other night. So, as soon as it's done...back to TDT.


    I swear, I almost typed: "back to TDK"

    first can i say i am rocking you sig

    now to business;-
    Feeve ; i missed your post **bad candy**

    it was so long since i read it, that i had forgotten what a fab book it is, i am currently reading Regulators now - and to show how long it is since i read both - i never realised he used the same characters names (it was approx 10 years since i read desperation and then years in between each book.) I actually got a bit of a kick out of it. It was like he had thrown names into a hat and then tagged them to a character, and then did the same again for Regulators (i know what i mean)

    at the moment, Desperation has the edge on Regulators but i will come back to you on that one once I have finished it. Desperation is definatley back in the top ten. (i always love rediscovering a book)

    I have been reading a lot of Peter Straub lately. I read his Blue Rose Trilogy (Koko, Mystery, The Throat) and I love them all. I have also read Lost Boy, Lost Girl, and The Hell-Fire Club. Both of these are very chilling novels.

    I started reading Peter Straub because he wrote two books with Stephen King and I wanted to get know him and his writing better. You never know, maybe some of Peter Straub's characters could show up in the third book of The Talisman and Black House series. (I think it would be awesome if there was a Fee Bandileor a.k.a Franklin Bachelor vs. Jack Sawyer! )

    Pixie, one of Straub's minor characters from Ghost Story is mentioned in Black House. PM me if you want more details.

    I've tried reading it-and The Fountainhead-when I was younger, and honestly couldn't finish either. I think I got through a chapter of AS. I might have to revisit them as an adult though.

    Some parts bog down, and she does go off on tangents, but this is a great book. Read it.

    That's funny: i've just been considering reading the Drizzt books recently, mainly because I want to learn more about the Forgotten Realms universe that quite a few of my favourite PC games (that i've mostly never been able to complete) are set in. Wasn't sure if i'd like them or not, but now I know you enjoy them Pond, well, I'll guess now I'll have to check it out! (After the Doctor Who book I've barely started and the Discworld novel I'm in the middle of, of course.)

    I just read this, lookin for Shambhala Myth : It's really amazing , even through the "DARK TOWER"'s light : it seems that Stephen King had a visionary metaphoric VISION about this (Myth ?) he knows probably by name but without consciously beeing thinking at this, when he writes This initiatic Thing : The Dark Tower (even if he told about It that he doesn't really knows, writing this huge modern odyssey, where (&why ?) he was going to ............. the // more than ever seems amazing to me ..

    I'm currently reading, "The Black Act" by Stoker Nominee Louise Bohmer--as well as, "End Times" by Stoker Nominee, Rio Youers.

    I highly recommend both.

    Oh I think you would love them! Especially the first trilogy set. There are 13 books total in the main story line, and are for the most part broken into story arches over 3 books. The first 3 are simply magnificent! Of course, I'm not saying the other ones aren't any good, but if you read any of them make sure you start at the beginning.

    This is actually only one of 4 books I am reading right now - I'm also in the middle of John Dies at the End by David Wong, The Lost Hero, of the Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan, and The TARDIS handbook

    Define "beginning", since I know chronologically the Dark Elf trilogy is first, but the Icewind Dale books were written before those. What's more ideal: written order or chronological order? Or is either way good to read?

    Personally, I find the Dark Elf Trilogy (Homeland, Exile, Sojourn) to be the best. Those 3 are generally placed at books. Though, the Icewind Dale trilogy is also quite good! Reading them in established book order though, is interesting. I think it's fairly easy to tell which books he wrote first. Thy style change is subtle - no more of a style change than what naturally happens over most series - but more noticable, I think because we are reading it from a "backwards" standpoint. The first 3 books are a little more polished, I think.

    Chronologically, I think it makes more sense to start with Homeland. There's nothing that is given away about those 3 in the Icewind Dale trilogy, but you understand Drizzt and his actions better if you read his backstory first.
