Awesome book, excited for the rest of the series and the tv show on HBO.


I really liked the first three books but the fourth one may have ruined the whole series for me. I don't even know if I want to go back and read the fifth when it's released. At the rate the books are released the author won't live to write the seventh one anyways.

i'm currently devouring any Vonnegut i can get my hands on. i'm reading "Hocus Pocus" right now, which is supposed to be among the best of his later stuff.



Hocus Pocus was actually the first i read of him aside from a few short stories

good read, got me wanting to read more

i was contemplating reading those, but i think i'll hold off and enjoy the series instead.

just finished the hunger games trilogy, first books I've read for pleasure since... well probably high school, at least a dozen years ago. the third book was not as enjoyable as the first 2, but still good. I'm looking forward to see how she adapts them to the big screen.

Just finished reading Fluery's Playing with Fire.  Very good and interesting.

Now I am reading th last book in the orginal Dune Series.  Chapterhouse
I loved his series, so good but sad that the original author died before it was 100% finished. His son's continuation of the story just fall short of what Frank Herbert's had. Recommend these books to anyone who like sci fi. Very game of thrones kinda style of books.

Just finished Scott Bakkers "The White Luck Warrior". Absolutely amazing and the last 3 chapters leaves huge cliff hangers, perfect for the upcoming Unholy Consult to finish the series.
For people who think they've outgrown fantasy, I suggest you read the 'Prince of Nothing' series and continue onto the 'Aspect Emperor' series.

I'm finishing up the 2nd book in the Hunger Games trilogy .."Catching Fire" ..pretty good ..and also reading "The Alexandria Quartet" by Lawrence Durrell ..it's SO good. It's set in Alexandria, Egypt before and during WWII. They are 4 different books in one, the first 3 talk about a single event but from 3 different perspectives, and the 4th book is set 6 years later.

I thought it was ok. Pretty exciting in the beginning, boring in the middle, but had a decent end.

“Reason is itself a matter of faith. It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all.” - G.K. Chesterton

“Unbelief is as much of a choice as belief is. What makes it in many ways more appealing is that whereas to believe in something requires some measure of understanding and effort, not to believe doesn't require much of anything at all.” - Frederick Buechner

“All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful.” - Flannery O'Connor


“My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust?” - C.S. Lewis

Heaven Is For Real. If you're looking for alien abduction fiction I would recommend Slaughter-House 5 instead.
