    Currently not reading anything [mostly into sci-fi/fantasy, fiction, mythology & religion].

    The last book I read was "Angels & Demons". It was 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 x better than it's movie counterpart [which was complete garbage]

    Yep I agree. The only part I found awesome in the movie was when the antimatter blows, the special effects were insane.

    A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

    Let's see...

    Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons, the Eragon series, the one Rurouni Kenshin novel(i forget the subheading), the Harry Potter series, Heavy Metal and You(not a self-help guide)...Uh...Hmm, what else...The Complete Works of Edgar Allen Poe, Purgatory's Gate(decent book for 7 bucks), and the Artemis Fowulseries.

    Note, I have no real drawing talent, so it'll be mostly literature.

    Not read a book in a long, long time, much to my discredit. Bah...

    I have to concur with Mister Death's assessment of A Song of Ice and Fire in the first post, these books are - for me - everything that fantasy should be. Extremely strong characterisation, good writing, a decidedly more gritty, unsentimental tone than is typical in high fantasy, the typical epic plot, though this time occuring on several simultaneous levels, inspiration taken from real sources as well as mythology... The guy writes slooowly though, been years since the last book.

    Speaking of fantasy (Or is it sci-fi...? Both I suppose.) I mentioned a series of novels a while ago in another thread on the subject of most changed fictional characters, that being Julian May's Saga of the Exiles (And Intervention, and the Galactic Milieu... Technically that is two seperate series with Intervention being the link book, but they're consanguineous) which across all of the books (And you won't get it from either series individually, it's convoluted) tells the story of Marc Remillard, who is both a rebel, war criminal, mass murderer, eugenecist, Satan figure, racial supremacist and self-sacrificing hero, benevolent galactic overseer, more human than human transhuman and all-round good guy. Sometimes he's things from both lists at once... Tough books to track down right enough, I believe they may even be out of print, which is a travesty.
