I heard Siala wasn't all that good either. I'm not really into action fantasy but the storyline does pull you along. So long as you're not overly concerned around the prose there's enough there to give it a try.
Finished off Chasers of the Wind by Alexey Pehov. Some of the translation from Russian is a bit off (e.g. "As frozen as a dog") but by and large an enjoyable read. I found it similar to James Barclay's Chronicles of the Raven trilogy but much improved. Loads of action, necromancy and magic it...
I'm in your camp. Really enjoy Sci Fi movies but just can't seem to get into Sci Fi books. Almost the opposite with fantasy (very few Fantasy movies I like). I stick entirely to Fantasy books now. Not sure why either.
For some reason I started recording how many words in a book, so over the last 3 or so words I've averaged something like 28,000 words per day. I figure at 350 words per standard page that makes roughly 80 pages a day.
The whole interest thing is unfair (if it had any purpose). I went away for a month and don't post nearly as much as some of the others here but still have a mountain of credits. To be honest though, i don't look at credits.
Nicely put eff. I thought Fionavar Tapestry was boring but manged to get through all 3 books. A Song for Arbonne was pretty standard fare too, although I did enjoy Tigana, so looks like pretty similar experiences on thebooks we've both read.
Happy to correct scores as their is bound to be errors. Unfortunately i do all of this on the laptop at home on a single screen which i absolutely hate. If only i had a job like @Sneaky Burrito then I could do it at work. ;)
