[quote]Eh. I just disagree. I thought Tower Lord was great and bordered on fantastic. It opened the world up and explored the mythology which I thought was unique and well imagined. Far more so than Rothfuss and more interesting than the well trod Red Rising series (which isn't too disparage Red Ris...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]Kvothe is a classic case of Aspergers or more accurately someone wrtiting from that perspective; and [b]it's not a surprise that Rothfuss started in Chemical Engineering.[/b] [/quote] Definitely. He looks at a magic system the way one would look at molecular attraction and the reactionary ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]Like everyone else said, all of Cornwell's novels are good, I preferred the Grail Quest series the best. [/quote] This looks interesting, thinking of checking it out! My biggest critique with any fantasy series is how few are finished (or finished in a reasonable number of books). Mayb...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]Jordan Leggett is more of the big bodied, athletic TE with great hands that could be had in the middle rounds. If you watch his highlights, you can see he catches everything with his hands only which is a plus. He also isn't afraid to go down the seams. Payton loves to use his TEs down the se...

[quote]Raven's Shadow book 1 (Blood Song) is the best book out any of the books in any of those 3 series. Yes, it's better than Name of the Wind. But Raven's Shadow peters out in book 3. It is still a good book, but books 1 is a masterwork and book 2 is legitimately great. Book 3, the finale, just b...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

[quote]Without getting into detail, the thing that pisses me off about Rothfuss is his inability to tell a tight story. Perhaps he's using that to indicate how Kvothe embellishes or gets stuck on a topic that he particularly likes, but Jesus frick chapter after chapter is devoted to side stories that...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Apparently there are some finer details not mentioned that the contestants must complete in order to win the money. I think each has to access an ATM twice.
