  1. https://joeabercrombie.com/progress-report-june-20/ There's this juicy tease for book 3: "Felt that I had to rework a few things for a more nuanced view in response to recent events – there’s a lot of stuff about popular revolt, demonstration and riot, even (I kid you not) the toppling of statues which was written a couple of years ago but now looks like almost too on-the-nose commentary about the present moment." I feel (and hope) that this refers to Bayaz's statue that was mentioned at the start of The Blade Itself. Super excited for book 2 either way.
  2. I don't know if its just me but I've seen alot of hype surrounding Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James. I've personally haven't read it yet, but it does sound interesting though! I'm interested in reading the author's previous books before commiting to an ongoing series though (even if he hasn't written any fantasy before).
  3. Yeah, I think a good ending could be when Paul gets named Muad'Dib and I think thats at the same moment we learn Jessica is pregnant. Then part 2 can start in the time jump that happens after that chapter. So basically film 1 covers parts 1 and 2 of the novel, and film 2 covers part 3.
  4. Just out of curiosity, is the FFVII Remake worth buying right now? I have never played any of the FF games and this one has caught my attention, but the fact that it only covers a small part of the original story makes me hesitate to buy it now or just wait until the full game is released.
  5. I like it! It looks like that could be the Atreides home planet and it does look similar to the way I pictured it. I like the costume aswell. It definetly gives me an Arrival vibe. Cant wait to see how Arrakis Will look like!
  6. New plot synopsis for The Trouble with Peace has been revealed!: "Second in the AGE OF MADNESS trilogy, THE TROUBLE WITH PEACE is the next instalment of a series which is revolutionising fantasy . . . Conspiracy. Betrayal. Rebellion. Peace is just another kind of battlefield . . . Savine dan Glokta, once Adua's most powerful investor, finds her judgement, fortune and reputation in tatters. But she still has all her ambitions, and no scruple will be permitted to stand in her way. For heroes like Leo dan Brock and Stour Nightfall, only happy with swords drawn, peace is an ordeal to end as soon as possible. But grievances must be nursed, power seized and allies gathered first, while Rikke must master the power of the Long Eye . . . before it kills her. Unrest worms into every layer of society. The Breakers still lurk in the shadows, plotting to free the common man from his shackles, while noblemen bicker for their own advantage. Orso struggles to find a safe path through the maze of knives that is politics, only for his enemies, and his debts, to multiply. The old ways are swept aside, and the old leaders with them, but those who would seize the reins of power will find no alliance, no friendship, and no peace, lasts forever." https://www.amazon.co.uk/Trouble-Peace-Book-Two-Madness-ebook/dp/B084D12JQT
  7. I'm in Paraguay. We have two seasons. Summer, and not Summer. I'm reading War and Peace at the moment and I'm loving it so far! I love all the characters, the writing and the overall story. I especially enjoy how well Tolstoy develops each character and gives even the most minor ones very distinct characteristics. I'm keeping notes on who is who so I don't mix anything up though lol My favorite characters so far are Pierre, Andrei, Rostov and Marya. I'm still waiting for my copy of A Little Hatred to arrive, which will be this friday
  8. There is a pretty good review on GR right now that was posted just this week. It sounds great! I can't wait for my copy to arrive! https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2073413162?book_show_action=true&from_review_page=1
  9. I haven’t read many books this year yet, but I’m hoping that once I finish college in a couple of weeks I’ll be able to dive into more heavy readig. My favorite books this year so far have been Chapterhouse:Dune, The Stories of Your Life and Others (I’m surprised I haven’t seen Ted Chiang being discussed here, his sci fi short stories are great!), and Bad Samaritans (an economics book that mixes alot of history in it, it’s a great book and I suggest people to read it if they live in a developing country, like I do)
  10. I have completly given up hope for this trilogy to ever be completed, which is sad because the two books really helped me during a tough time in my life back in 2015.
  11. How about Iwan Rheon as Feyd Rautha? I think he could pull it off. Besides he has the dark hair like he was described in the novel.
  12. Piter De Vries has been cast! The article doesn't mention it, but this guy was in Blade Runner 2049 and Prisoners as well. https://deadline.com/2019/02/legendary-dune-david-dastmalchian-1202560175/
  13. Release date announced! https://www.google.com.py/amp/s/variety.com/2019/film/news/dune-reboot-release-date-november-2020-1203141604/amp/
  14. IDK, Pascal? I just can’t see Momoa pulling off the material for books 2-4, specially the Alia storyline and the Leto one. For the 5th and 6th I guess they could change the actor, wasn’t that ghola supposed To be younger than the previous ones?
