Freerider (2/8)

  1. Book 2's climax was a mindf*ck and I really need to read that again closer to release of Alecto!
  2. I think we all can agree that Gideon is by far a better character than Harrow. Let's see how Alecto fares.
  3. I found Harrow to be a book of two parts. Part One (which is nearly 60% of the book) is a bit tedious to read as Tamsyn got a bit carried away with her own prose (esp in second person narrative). There's only so much of Harrow's misery monologue that I could take before it gets frustrating. Part Two is where the plot actually progresses rapidly. It feels a bit rushed as events cascade right on top of each other and revelations unveiled at every other page. Leaves you hanging in a nice place waiting for book 3. I liked this slightly lesser that earlier book as Gideon was a far better character than Harrow. Still a good read.
  4. Have you all read Lost Horizon by James Hilton. A airplane crash lands a bunch of people at mysterious Shangri-La where they get extra long life...if they stay there. And that their arrival may not be a accident. One of my first and still best remembered books.
  5. Nothing special on that. I used to discuss Fantasy Books with Revanchist on another forum and he recommended the Literature forum as a great place to have general fantasy book related discussions. I was also impressed that you have a multi page thread on Nemesis Games and so decided to give this a try. I really don't have any criticism on GRRM's books. I recall reading the first 4 books back in mid 2000's before all the TV hype and liked it. At that time I was really into books on traditional magic and fantasy elements and felt that GRRM is more of a political docudrama than a classic fantasy. I just wanted more magic, more dragons and more of fantasy, so drifted off to other series, I suppose. I may come back to this if we ever get the next book.
  6. I've a big list of favourite characters. Sticking with same username is boring! Ever site I'm on has a different favourite character of mine. And the caf username was not my own. Given to me by Dwyane, I think.
  7. Hello to all! Glad to be here. Voracious reader of fantasy and fiction books. Just finished Nemesis Games and currently underway through the 2nd book of Tales from Ketty Jay series. I'll incur the wrath of the dragons by admitting that I'm not a big fan of asoiaf. I've read all the books years before the TV series started and though good, not exactly my type. If and when the next book comes, I've not decided on whether I'd read it or not. Probably will. The Literature forum comes highly recommended by @TheRevanchist (EAP here) and I hope to have great discussions there.
