  1. Few replies: Translated into my own language... can't say I find it interesting, seems to focus on "girl power" too much, but adding to the list Own translation of Circe, will read it after Red Orm Have some of his books. Including CoEaS Who? I still have good memories of Mists of Avalon, but I can't force myself to reread... too much associations now. Interesting. Will check it out Maybe... BTW: new info about book I read currently in main post.
  2. I didn't want to sound so aggressive in my previous comments... but yes, basically this. I'm not denying it can't be enjoyed by women, but !action.
  3. Sooooooo..... I'm horribly out of loup. I mostly read my country fiction (Croatian fantasy, small EU country), but I'm not impressed anymore... there's some good stuff there, but I think I need to shift focus on American fiction/EU/UK Last English thing I read is Naomi Novik Uprooted and I found it very, very good. Other things I read in past years is Terry Pratchets older work, Bear and the Nightingale (Winter Night novel, liked that one) and The Witcher. I really like Elric of Melnibonea short works, Memory Sorrow Thorn, Song of Ice and Fire series I wish to read: fantasy, not urban fantasy one and not SF, not dystopian and not alternative something tasteful, and not too cringy, something that's not pretentious, so, basically this mean is something between cringworthy and pretentious (based on my reading bookshelf, it's astonishing how EU can be so ridiculously pretentious and irrelevant, and go on two sides of this spectrum) something that passed publishers quality selection (I know, I know...) something I can easily find in printed form and find a way to ship it to EU, or digital, but digital is last resort option, I got non working kindle not overly manly fiction (i.e. first pages of the book I deemed manly: man in his prime is fighting for its life, and it succeed to live to to sheer effort and skill, but not before readers are informed with every move he took, then author shifted focus to elderly rich and corrupted banker man) not young adult, or not romance young adult at least I'm open to new titles, but I'm open to reading old stuff only if you recommend new stuff also, by new slightly new can also pass you're welcome to break any rule, but I'm horribly picky and hard to please Some of my lifestyle in past years: I read mostly my own country novels and try hard to like them, some of them are OK, good for reals, but some of them I try to forget I actually wish to read... In my spare time I only videogame, have no actual friends (I'm complicated, kind of ill in wrong way and live in small closed minded town). I was fan of Song of Ice and Fire before the series... Currently reading Red Orm - historical fiction and I'm really digging it.
  4. I see you reacted confused to my post. If you have nothing else to say, I don't wish to leave this discussion unresolved. Can you tell me what's so confusing in my post?
  5. And no, not all fantasy books had such strong "it's the man" zeitgest to me, not even those with combat in it.
  6. Because my impression (we're talking about my impressions and that's it) is that when showing the combat in that book, Abercombie actually showed what some men dream about: power, being physically in shape that you could defeat enemies and triumph, defeating people who attacked you with murder intent, and the way it showed that, moves and all that, I simply hold very strong and very much cemented opinion that's man other men admire to.
  7. first pages of the book I deemed manly: man in his prime is fighting for its life, and it succeed to live to to sheer effort and skill, but not before readers are informed with every move he took, then author shifted focus to elderly rich and corrupted banker man from best served cold (I'm not sure on this, but it's definitely first book in the series) Errr, I'm not denying women like manly stuff, but book I read is obviously served to men.
  8. ........................................................................
  9. Author I'm familiar with... but last thing I read from him was so manly it sucked for me... and at the same time, I don't wish to read young adult. Welp.
  10. that's a thing? What a bummer. I have to admit, I wanted to read something of quality, and discuss it... but we're in between hypes, because that's obviously it...
  11. I know books popularity come and go, and that popularity of said books only shows number of people talking or buying it. Please no judge me, but I'm horribly out of loop with world fantasy book popularity, so few direction can help. I'm not American, and asking about American/British/EU books. I was wondering, what's in now? By in I mean, what books are talk about, who's on the throne as most talked fantasy author or who sold big... in the world of fantasy fiction?
  12. How did Emilia Clarke fared after the show? I guess it's not easy to hated as Dany and to be hated due the coffee mug fiasco...
