re: A new Iron Druid book is out, and it's getting killed by readers! - auyushu
Yeah, it's extremely short, and one of the worst in the series. Pretty ho hum without much excitement. The first book of his new series is pretty mediocre too. I was disappointed on both....

re: Mistborn - auyushu
[quote]Kelsier was fricking amazing dude [/quote] Kelsier is great for sure, but he's only one character. None of the other characters in the series are particularly memorable at all (Sazed is as well to a certain extent). I honestly couldn't tell you another characters name from the series out...

re: Thoughts on Farseer Trilogy? - auyushu
[quote] Book 1 of the third series is damn near unreadable[/quote] It is definitely much slower than the others, but I think it does a wonderful job of showing the relationship between Molly and Fitz as well as Bee. It really sets the tone for the last two books in that trilogy. And the ending fo...

re: Mistborn - auyushu
[quote]Brandon Sanderson does a pretty good job of building a world and developing characters, imo. [/quote] I actually found the characters to be by far the weakest part of the Mistborn series. I think his world building and in particular the magic system are fantastic. I actually much prefer...

re: Do people realize Dune is a satire? - auyushu
Eh, it's not really a satire as much as just a realistic portrayal of how the world works. There is no real humor or irony being used in the majority of that series....

re: Thoughts on Farseer Trilogy? - auyushu
It's a very good series. I put it on my lists of book series I think are better than The Name of the Wind when we had that discussion a while back(and several people fairly called me crazy, though I still think so). The first trilogy is the best I think, but all of the Fitz books and the Liveshi...

[quote]And book 3 ended with a bit of a cliffhanger and it looks more and more like Scott Lynch is channeling his inner JRR Martin and will never publish the next damn book!!! [/quote] It took him forever to get book 3 out too. Though I give Lynch a pass compared to Rothfuss and Martin because...

re: Do you know any teachers who work a 2nd job? - auyushu
[quote]The best way is based on how students grades + test scores + behavior improved from year to year.

[quote] and the other is a conclusion to the series, allegedly.[/quote] Cook was talking about writing this book back in like 2005-2006, so I'll kinda believe it when I see it on this one. Though it looks like Port of Shadows (the prequel one you mentioned) is finally coming out in the fall after...

[quote]Not at all accurate. I just did the numbers on my wife's hours/salary and it comes out to $26/hr. [/quote] Yeah, that's about where I am per hour averaged out over 9 months (25ish). And I don't run any clubs or coach any sports, so my per hour money would be higher than many at my school....
