Reviving this thread for posterity! I've read some more Horus Heresy literary trash. I managed to read most of Krauthammer.

I recently read The Trial of Henry Kissinger by Christopher Hitchens. If you're interested in a disturbing perspective it's worth a read. Diplomacy by Kissinger is on the list to read soon.

I'm like a quarter of a way through Name of the Wind. I was kind of hesitant because I normally hate framing devices like the "guy telling his story" thing but it's really captivating so far. Nothing like a good orphaned child story.

it's pretty good, there are parts where it gets real weird though.

Name of the Wind is mostly great. Wise Man's Fear is where things occasionally get a little weird for me. Still mostly great.

Magic? Not weird. Sexy times with a Fae? Weird.

Waiting on the 3rd one is like waiting on Martin to finish his saga.

Does he even work on it? I know this series is notoriously behind schedule as well...

Adolin - “I’m a ladies man, who’s brash and too easy to provoke”
Dalinar - “I’m a shitty Eddard Stark”
Sadeas - “I’m a conniving prick, who would’ve gotten away with it, if it wasn’t for these meddling kids!”
Shallan - “I’m just a southern bell, who has a super shitty upbringing, yet blush at the slightest provocation”
Kaladin - “I must save the Tiens of the World! I”m only whole fighting light eyes! Light eyes are the worst! I hate you and am an emotional wreck!"

I'm ready for the next one... Is it here yet?

Folk better take notes for his GTA RP backstory/character development.

He'd have an F- on his GTA RP trial thread after last nights portal farm session.
