I'm only on part three so far. Don't really remember which night that is because there are so many stories inside stories inside other stories around other stories relating to other stories.

I have a bad habit of starting books without finishing them.

Books I have started that need finshing:

The two towers
Carl jung's Man and his symbols
1001 nights
that new dragonlance book
how to speak spanish(possibly te toca a ti)
Becoming a category of one.

Going on vacation next month, maybe I'll finish up one of them at the beach.

1001 Nights is hilarious. It's the ultimate frame story.

'Bout done with Blood of the Fold, moving on to Temple of the Winds soon. Terry Goodkind has some good stuff out if you're into fantasy.

The series really gets good with Faith of the Fallen. Just make sure you have it handy when you finish Soul of the Fire because the ending of Soul kind of pisses you off. I read them as they came out on hardback and when I got to the end of SotF I was like, "That's it? You're ending the book like that? I am pissed!"

Oh and book 7 (Pillars of Creation) goes off on a huge tangent but the story gets back on track in book 8

I'm reading Jennifer Government, A Clash of Kings, Guards! Guards!, and Player's Piano right now. I just bought Neil Gaiman's American Gods.

I don't know mang, I just bought it But I'm a very smart person as well so I let you know the good things when I get to it.

And Guards! Guards! is amazing. I'm reading the series in chronological order so I had been looking forward to this one

Both American Gods and its sequel (of sorts) are quite good. Not as good as Good Omens.

Pretty much the entire Pratchett library is good. "The Nation" was a bit boring, but readable. It wasn't standard fare for Pratchett, so that may have lessened my enjoyment.

Before American Gods I was with you on Gaiman. I had tried Sandman a few times and found it to be boring as hell. Then went back and picked up some of his other works and found that it's his COMICS writing that I don't care for. He was made for novels.

Good Omens is a fantastic book, otherwise I wouldn't know who the fuck Gaiman even is. Neverwhere looked interesting too but I was too poor to buy both

Ha. Had to look up if that's real. Looks like it is. Along with the author's other works: The Baby Jesus Butt Plug, Rampaging Fuckers of Everything on the Crazy Shitting Planet of the Vomit Atmosphere and Satan Burger

all of steinbeck is good. critics generally have serious issues with it, because they're cocksuckers. it's not as good or well-constructed as grapes of wrath so far, that's true, but it IS a great american novel, just as Steinbeck's a great American author.
