finished sai king's 11/22/63. it isn't that i'm a slow reader, i've been busy and i've been saving it. it is everything i expected. he rarely brings up anything for no reason. therefore everything he brings up, has closure in one way or another. very good book. can't wait for the DT book coming out shortly.
in spite of my appeciation for stephen king's dark tower series...i am not ordinarily a fan of science fiction. however, i started reading george r.r. martin's song of ice and fire series, beginning with game of thrones (so very well done on hbo) and i have to say...i like this even better than the lord of the ring books (which i read twice). the good guys are real...with flaws. the bad guys are delectably hateable. just watch out who you find yourself rooting for...martin can (and will) kill anyone off. and occasionally the slimiest dirtbags can fill you with such hope.
it may not be everyone's cup o' tea, but if you can tolerate science fiction, it comes off as a real landscape, with real people and real worries, and very real dangers. a power struggle between 4 familes (think soprano's with swords, in a medieval land). with so many cookie-cutter novels out today...it is most refreshing to read something with such depth.
absorbing reading, kids.
I want to tell her that I love her a lot, but I got to get a belly full of wine.
