    Midnight Tides - Book 4

    A very good book, with good characters with whom i - finally - could sympathize. A better spectrum of emotions compared to the previous books in wich very few characters stood out from the others (almost everyone tends to act cynical or smartass). Also a good story, obviously :D

    Evangelion

    Anyway, best 90's anime opening song, imo. It has become a symbol. I get chills everytime. Nice anime; another unsatisfying ending though :/

    What kind of reader are you?

    I used to be a monogamist, but i forced myself to become a polygamist due to lack of time. Surely i'm an introvert.

    Evangelion

    One of my favourite anime ever; ending included, actually :sorry: Although it was clearly inappropriate. I like the movies also, but 3.0 left me a little "meh" o_O

    Most overused Fantasy trope?

    I'll try explain myself better: the pathos remains - i don't consider myself a huge fan of the series, but i love Erikson's writing and his talent on creating very suggestive moments - but a part of me will always remain cool about it, because now, after four books, i can't take deaths too...

    Most overused Fantasy trope?

    That's even more irritating, in my opinion. It kills the pathos (of both past and future events).

    The book you don't like that most everyone else seems to like ...

    I'll paste here a piece of a review i found on goodreads that's pretty accurate, according to what i've read :D:

    It seems to be very popular in Italy :eek: but i'm glad to hear that!

    The sword of Truth... i didn't make it past the first half of the first book. Another line of Richard moaning over Kahlan and i would have cut my wrists...

    Biggest Fantasy Heartbreak?

    I easily get heartbreaks.. too esaily, maybe, so it's difficult for me to point out one in particular. Probably, the biggest one for me is from a manga, Berserk. The final part of the Golden Age chapter. I have read it and watched it so many times and still it hurts so much, at the point i lose...

    Memories of Ice - Book 4 (Memories of Ice)

    It's not that i don't like it; actually the series fascinated me since the start and i will continue reading the books. I can honestly say that i like it, but just don't "feel very comfortable" with it. I like dense plots, but the Malazan is too much. I read fantasy mostly to relax and take my...

    Memories of Ice - Book 4 (Memories of Ice)

    I agree with most of your points. Anyway: I was so happy i didn't have to use the wiki since the start with this book, but then the last chapters came and i almost threw away my kindle in despair! But somehow i managed to bring the pieces together, i hope. I liked this book better than Gotm...

    Memories of Ice Book 3: Capustan

    I've really liked the siege part. I've read only a few chapters from book 3, but the first chapter in wich Paran appears made me realize one thing: i wasn't bored by book 2, i was bored by Paran..

    Memories of Ice - Book 2 (Hearthstone)

    Maybe it's an unpopular opinion, but book 2 got me so bored... I've been stuck there for weeks and i had to make a huge effort to go on; not because of the story, but because of the pace. Finally started book 3.
