  1. Reading Babylon's Ashes and there's a ship called Witch of Endor. Does this take place in the same continuity as Star Wars?
  2. TIL David Hasselhoff played Nick Fury in a 1998 Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. made for TV movie.
  3. I forgot this was being adapted, or I just didn't know in the first place. I can't keep up anymore.
  4. Surprised to see so many people showing up and hating on Acts of Caine. Most people who read it, love it. I think it's excellent, and that the first book is near perfect. The other 3 are more uneven but more intellectually rewarding.
  5. I'm about 1/3 of the way into the second book and not much has happened at all yet. It's still mostly people bouncing back from what happened at the end of book 1. The humor also seems more lazily done than in the first book, but I'm also in a major reading slump right now so I'm just not in the mood to read.
  6. Pretty sure Tchaikovsky is faster than Sanderson. I can't keep up.
  7. If you're confused about what order to read them in, just make a topic.
  8. Yeah as much as I'm enjoying FoL it is not a standard Malazan book. It's basically one long jack-off session by Erikson. But I told myself going in that it was going to be slow, and not to rush it. It's definitely because of expectations that I'm enjoying it so much.
  9. I only have the first book, but I hate the ridged pages. Or whatever term you use for those. Loving the book so far, though. It seems to have a lot of potential for great payoff.
  10. I'm only 100 pages into The Red Knight but I love some of the various storylines that are being set up. This has a lot of potential.
  11. Books I gave 5 stars to: Ready Player One - Ernest Clines Promise of Blood - Brian McClellan Cibola Burn - James S.A. Corey Bands of Mourning - Brandon Sanderson Morning Star - Pierce Brown Arcanum Unbounded - Brandon Sanderson Although I started a few books that will probably end up getting 5 stars (White Luck Warrior, Fall of Light, Kushiel's Dart). Morning Star is my #1 pick.
  12. I'm surprised you left out the two best ones--Dead Beat and Changes.
  13. People are probably going easy on the TC because she's a young girl, honestly.
  14. I know he's written shorter books, but those were intentionally shorter. And Alloy of Law was originally supposed to be a novella. I wonder if TWoK was originally supposed to be as long as Mistborn, Elantris, etc., and the Wheel of Time rubbed off on him and he started to become more long winded. Or maybe it was intended to be a doorstopper, I don't know. I'm fine with Stormlight books staying at 1,000+ pages, but I hope he can get back to that 600-700 page count for Mistborn, Elantris, etc. Anyway I don't want to make a big fuss about this. It's just something I thought of and I plan to read all of his books regardless.
  15. I'll be curious to see if he can still write a 600-700 page novel, since he hasn't done that since before TWoK. So far all three Stormlight books have ended up a lot longer than Sanderson expected. I love these books but I hope he can get back to that 600-700 page length for the next Mistborn trilogy and Elantris and Warbreaker sequels.
