As much as I like the Count of Monte Cristo, it’s one of the best examples of a difficult read I can think of. Not because it’s difficult to understand, but because Dumas liked to go off on 50 page tangents about events only very loosely related to the central conflict. I don’t mind deliberate pacing, but he really pushed it.

I kinda liked that about it, though. I felt it made the book more interesting and open.

And, it appears that I have a book in common with both Stealthmaster and Kumiko. Neat.

Altered Carbon- Richard Morgan

The Steel Remains- Richard Morgan

The Giver-Lois Lowry

Mass Effect: Revelation and Ascension- Drew Karpyshyn

Where’s Waldo? In Hollywood - Martin Handford

They still make books? Aren’t those those paper things on that ROD show…?

oh, Hitchhiker’s Guide(series), and just random things that catch my fancy, last being a copy of Princess of Mars by Burroughs from :

(if you’ve never checked out Project Gutenberg, do it, you’d be surprised how good old books can be)

The only 2 series that matter:

Sword of Truth series (the best series ever) by Terry Goodkind

Wheel of Time Series by Robert Jordan

Mass Effect: Revelation and Ascension- Drew Karpyshyn[/quote]

I never had a chance to read Ascension (i hope i do before me2 comes out) but Revelation was a awesome suprise. I’ll be getting Under The Dome by mail because walmart is selling it for 10 bucks online. :slight_smile: I hope to get Micheal Crichton’s new one also.
