Knight of Ren

Just finished Oathbrigner the other day. While good, I was left disappointed as it's not nearly as great as the first two. It seems to suffer from being a "middle book" and there were far too many PoVs at the climax IMO.

It also doesn't help that my boy Kaladin [SPOILER - highlight to read]: was basically irrelevant for the last two parts of the book.

So good book over all, but not nearly to the level of the first 2.

I just started my read through of the Malazan Book of the Fallen series. So far it's not as difficult a read as others made it out to be. It does take focus since there doesn't seem to be any throw away entries and you have to pick up on things that aren't flat out spelled out for you though. I completely missed the significance of a passage because I was dead exhausted while reading it and I completely missed out on the fact that it was a character that showed up earlier in the novel. So far I like it. People seem to say it overtook ASOIAF as their favorite fantasy series so we'll see about that as I get farther in.

I've tried a couple of times but just couldn't get past the first couple of chapters.

I've been reading a lot of light novels recently and two I'd recommend that are absolutely fantastic, better than most Western fantasy series:

Coiling Dragon series by I Eat Tomatoes
The King's Avatar series by Hu Dielan

I'll look into those! I'm always up for expanding my backlog

I'll also let you know how Malazan is for me to see if I can change your mind once I get more into it. So far I'm absolutely loving it though

Wow this thread has become highly inactive.

The Monkey's Raincoat by Robert Crais
The main character Elvis Cole a PI is the narrator, and it is a great entertaining book. I'm confused as to why Elvis apologized to a kid since I didn't read anything where he did something wrong that hurt the kid in the Chapter.

When Animals Attack
The 70 Best Horror movies with Killer Animals
A great book with reading about Beaks a Shlock version of the Terrific Movie The Birds except in this movie a explanation of why the birds are attacking.

Ha, yeah, I quite liked the Elvis Cole books. What's his friend's name again? The one with the sunglasses? Pike? I started reading them after reading the Robert B Parker books and the John Sandford books.

I don't really post here a lot anymore because as you've said, the thread isn't that active. I mentioned previously that I've been exploring the Asian fantasy genre so a lot of wuxia and xianxia novels.

I Shall Seal The Heavens is fantastic, a must-read for anyone who likes fantasy. Lots of action and humour with a great MC.

The World of Cultivation is also great and thankfully not quite as long as ISSTH.

At the moment I'm reading Infinite Competitive Dungeon Society. So far, so good. Slightly sillier and more fun.

Books I'm reading and enjoying but waiting for the translation to catch up:

The King's Avatar.
Rebirth of the Thief who Roamed the World.
Overgeared.
Shura's Wrath.

The Monkey's Raincoat The 1st book in The Elvis Cole PI Series

Chapter 22 and Page 110

Several pages I read yesterday involved a rescue, and a gun fight involving Elvis and badd guys, also a death threat by a Criminal Boss that might be a Narcotics Kingpin since the theft of dope is brought up.

Possibly I might finish it this week.

When Animals Attack
The 70 Best Horror Movies with Killer Animals

By best not as in great instead killer animal movies that are entertaining, and intentional effort to be a decent or great movie.
It's a great book I got exposed to killer animal movies I hadn't heard of including Chosen Survivors, Bug, Black Sheep, etc.

I could understand why Cujo the movie had alterations because it has a somber ending.
Also I'm surprised Bug isn't called Bugs because cockroaches not a cockroach kill humans so it is nonsensical that this movie is called Bug when the movie is about bugs, and has a group of bugs.
