re: Series that fell off a cliff? - auyushu
Jordan's wheel of time fell off a cliff after book 8, though his last book before he died did get a bit better. A little too soon to say fell off a cliff since he has only written two books, but the drop off between Rothfuss's first and second books was gigantic....

re: Fantasy/Sci-fi Books you're looking forward to... - auyushu
On your list I'm really looking forward to: A Little Hatred by Joe Abercrombie Blood of Empire by Brian McClellan Fate of the Fallen by Kel Kade I'm sure I'll check out The Wolf's Call, but hopefully it's better than the end of the series it was a sequel to (I'm hoping so since his Draconis Me...

[quote]Just curious, is there a fantasy series you haven’t read? Seriously with work and kids, I struggle to read 2 books a month. It seems like you’ve read everything. I wish I could be more proficient. [/quote] :lol: I know it probably seems that way I guess, but mainly it is a combination...

re: Codex Alera series by Jim Butcher - auyushu
[quote]Good. He needs to take his time. The last three Dresden books were meh, good, meh. In his rush to release he has compromised quality.[/quote] The last one was very good, don't know what you are talking about there. Ghost story was pretty average, I'll give you that, but it was mostly becau...

re: The ATL Thread: Draft Day Edition - auyushu
Definitely the worst braves draft I can remember in a long time, particularly given the number of picks we had. The first pick was a small reach but not insane, but these last two picks are completely baffling. Wtf are we even spending our slot money on? No way any of these guys should be over slot....

re: The ATL Thread: Draft Day Edition - auyushu
[quote]Dont love those picks but they are better than Davidson, Hoese, or Busch. Still want a prep pitcher. [/quote] Carroll (or if Abrahms slipped down to 9 somehow as suggested by FG in their latest mock) and a prep pitcher with 21 would be ideal. Would be nice if Priester could drop to us t...

re: Codex Alera series by Jim Butcher - auyushu
[quote] I’ve tried Dresden on several occasions but just can’t get into it. [/quote] How many books did you get in? Cause yeah,the first two books are pretty mediocre, 3rd starts to get a bit better, but it really doesn't start to take off until books 4 and 5, at which point it is outstanding t...

re: Codex Alera series by Jim Butcher - auyushu
It's a very solid series. Not nearly as good as his Dresden Files series, and not top tier for current fantasy authors or anything, but well worth reading. Hopefully Butcher gets it back together as an author, he's turned into Rothfuss/Martin lite with the long book turnaround all the sudden (tho...

re: Clive Cussler - Dirk Pitt novels - auyushu
They are mindless fun that gets very repetitive after the first few books. I'd suggest Robert Ludlum and Jack Higgins for better authors in the same genre and time period....
