Am I the only person who is turned off by these ego-stroking reviews that they put on books nowadays? Ugh, I see something like that and instantly put the book back down.

I simply ignore that. They put it on every single book, no matter how bad it is.
Time is precious. Waste it wisely.

Reading 'The truce' by Primo Levi, the first book, 'If this is a man' made a deep impact on me. One of the absolute best of the authors writing about the camps.

I constantly read all the Drizzt books, but lately I can't put down Name of the wind, The Wise Man's Fear, and The Slow Regard for Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss. The man is just a genius writer.

I'm actually thinking of wizzing just to create things in his books.

I just finished the Ian Cormac series from Asher, loved them. Haven't read anything of Patrick Rothfuss, I will give it a try.

The Name of the Wind starts very slow. After 60% of the book, it becomes incredible. He really should be more popular.

Yeah, it's pretty damn good, especially if you like the concept of virtual reality and 80's pop culture.

I also recommend Snow Crash. One of the books that inspired The Matrix.
