The Charlemagne Pursuit - Steve Berry
The opinions in these posts are not that of the player Zestana but that of the player Ilrahil. Having had my account removed due to irreconcilable differences with the administration it is the only way I am able to offer my opinion.

Currently I'm jumping between:
-'The Name of the Rose' Umberto Eco - finally got to read it and I quite enjoy the way he plays with words thus far,
and
-'Generation Kill' Evan Wright - non-fiction combat memoir from Iraq war, which is great read actually.

Finished recently:
-'The Defector' Mark Chisnell - psychological thriller that turned out to be surprisingly fast paced.
-'Psychomech' Brian Lumley - it was just plain weak, with pretty basic and cheese storyline and bland, uninteresting characters. I heard that his vampire novels were better.
-'Hunter's Run' George R.R. Martin - Martin's hard sci-fi with couple of surprises here and there and protagonist being utter bastard, which was quite refreshing. Good read.
-'The First Heretic' Aaron Dembski-Bowden - WH40k novel from the Horus Heresy series. Amazing novel as much as most of books from the series, not quite what you would expect from typical "rpg-literature".

Yeah, the mini-series rocks, the novel seems to be a bit more on the serious side.

No, they are different sized rocks. I usually have a book on me, and use it to kill a lot of smaller pieces of time, like in a queue or on the train.

I thought that was the whole point of the 'net.

Still, if you are going to insist on a precise usage of the word now, I'd argue this should be a thread consisting entirely of the word "submit".

Also, this.
The preceding collection of words was presented by Strider's Player.
Any meaning you ascribe to them is most likely due to lucky happenstance or your misinterpretation.

If you'd prefer Strider's opinion, you'll probably have to ask for it in game.

On a slightly less facetious note.

I'm reading Shadowmarch by Tad Williams. Which is pretty good, I sort of spoiled it by reading the second book Shadowplay 1st. It was one I had got as a freebie in a lot of books I bought for some of the others. Just happened to see this one when I was in the library. I will probably look finishing it off with the 3rd and 4th book in the future.

After that I will be reading Dust of Dreams by Steven Erikson, part of the Malazan book of the fallen series which has been _awesome_ so far.
And then Fool's Errand the start of the Tawny Man trilogy by Robin Hobb. Looking forward to that as well because I enjoyed her Farseer, Liveship Trader's and Soldier's Sun trilogies a great deal.

And after those I'll be getting back to the wall with George Martin's A Dance with Dragons.

Sounds interesting, will reading that one 1st spoil anything from the others if I like it and want to go backwards?
You might like Stan Nicholls 'Orcs' books - Bodyguard of Lightning, Legion of Thunder, and Warriors of the Tempest
Written from the orcs perspective and also not what you would usually expect.
