I just finished Asimov's Robot Series, and I'm about to start LOTR (never read it before or seen the movie). I love science fiction and fantasy novels though. I also just finished The Rover series by Mel Odom, I highly recommend it to fantasy lovers.


Asimov was a genius writer !

I used to be really into John Grisham's books for a while. We had a ton of them in the school library, and I could usually get through one in a couple of days.

One of our teachers once made the mistake of mentioning she thought Grisham was good looking, and from then on he became 'Dishy Grishy' :laugh:

Books. I read books in my spare time.

But no, really, I enjoy Ted Dekker books. I also like to read the Warriors series by Erin Hunter :).

Spare time? What's that?

Well, I play some video games (SteamID: yannbane, add me if you wanna play), but mostly I'm learning about programming or programming. I also lurk the web a lot, and maintain a blog. Also, I study Latin.


I just finished Asimov's Robot Series, and I'm about to start LOTR (never read it before or seen the movie). I love science fiction and fantasy novels though. I also just finished The Rover series by Mel Odom, I highly recommend it to fantasy lovers.


You'll be very positively surprised about LotR, it's one of the greatest works of fiction I have ever read. The movies are also a masterpiece, but they completely excluded the actual ending, which is 1/5th of the final book, and a huge part of the lore.

I didn't enjoy the movies. I only saw the first one, but it was like two weeks long and still didn't include everything from the books.

I did like the books, though :)

But you can't really expect them to include everything... But I guess whether you like it or not depends on the perspective, I watched the movies first, and then read the books. I still think P.J. made a masterpiece, and can't wait for Hobbit!

Yeah, I'm interested to see how the Hobbit turns out. I think LoTR was spectacular, but I'd have preferred it as an episodic TV show or something that didn't take an entire day to watch :laugh:
