This seems like a hella fuckin empty board. Just browsing through all of them. What's your guys opinion on the Inheritance series (more commonly known as the Eragon books). I thought they were great until the last book or two, which I felt were really forced and that Paolini ran out of any ideas for the plot
User avatar #5818 to #5816 - dudeheit (01/29/2015) [-]
I think that the last one was the worst but still enjoyable. Like you wait more than 3 books to fight galbatorix and the fight is over in a few pages Also that Arya became the next dragon rider was way to obvious and chliché and of course the ending is not what you wish for the characters
Still I love the series and will reread them any time, it's just not the same anymore.

I love them, it was the best series I've read and it's what got me into reading.

Is there a funny fantasy book which reads like a good round of dungeons and dragons?
User avatar #5884 to #5814 - pipeworks (02/01/2015) [-]
Everything written by Terry Pratchett.


He's written over 40 Discworld books at this point. It's basically one big satire series, and the first 20 books or so are very reminiscent of Dungeons and Dragons in mechanics, and the commentary provided by the narrator is like a particularly snide, non-serious DM. The books have no over-arching story, so you can read them on their own if you want. However, it can help to read them in order, and I believe it is absolutely worth it.

The first book is The Colour of Magic, and my favorites are Guards! Guards!, Feet of Clay, Small Gods, and Interesting Times

Not Fantasy, but you should try Robert Rankin...it´s...dunno, Comedy, Sci-Fi, pseudo-historical, fantasy, lot of stuff. It has the typical random Stuff happening that might come up in D&D-Rounds. For example an ancient pope being resecurrected evil and being defeated with a brickstone in a sock and jazz like that.

Despite being slapstick-y and trashy, it´s definitely a good read and far from being trash, especially literacy-wise.

are there any girls on this board that want to share nudes

I don´t get the idea of wanting nudes.

There´s so much porn on the internet, why would you want people to send you nuded? All it does is that it makes you look like a sad little tosser...

Did anyone read this series growing up? Reread it last summer, and I must say it's even better than I remembered. I could recommend it if anyone is interested, but frankly I came here to find something else to read. Tried to read through the board, but didn't find anything that struck my attention. I'm looking for something, preferably fantasy, but any genre is good really that is slow paced and doesn't have the whole "Do the impossible in less than 3 days or the world end" feel. Of course, there got to be a plot, and it can be gruesome in mistmantle the baby prince is murdered and the murderer almost manages to take over the kingdom while growing more and more mad. , but I want to feel happy througout the book. Sorta like how you feel towards the end of a action movie where everything goes in favor of the heroes. Just generally something that makes you happy

I also read "The day the world came to town" which is a real story about the different people on board a plane that was forced to land in Newfound Land after 9/11. It has a lot of the same things I'm looking for, because there's no point in the book where you feel despair or afraid for the characters.

First of all: EVERYTHING Tolkien. If you already read everything by Tolkien, those might be interesting, otherwise: READ IT.

The Wheel of Time - a fantasy Saga of epic proportions, easily the series that had the most impact on me besides Tolkien.

Fool on the Hill by Matt Ruff. Nearly nobody knows about this book, weirdly enough, but it´s a fantastic modern fairytale.

The Mistborn-Triology is pretty good, too and I hear that this authors other series are great, too (he also finished Wheel of Time when the original Author died and he did an amazing job)

Basically every Triology by Kai Meyer is the same, but weirdly enough they´re still a fantastic read and amongst the books with the highest re-read-value around.

If you want a fantastic new take on the Arthur/Merlin Legends, you should also give Mad Merlin by J. Robert King a try.

The Dwarves (and everything following) by Markus Heitz is a great read if you´re into clichéed popcorn-fantasy (I didn´t know that I was before I read the series) - but I don´t know if an english translation is available and if it is, I have no idea if it´s well-done...

Also classics like The Worm Ouroboros or The once and Future King might be interesting.

So is the wheel of time really good? I bought books 9 and 10(that's all they had) for like a quarter, and haven't read them yet.
Are they the kinds of books that can stand alone, or do you need to read the series?
User avatar #5857 to #5853 - ljxjlos (01/31/2015) [-]
It´s fantastic - only Tolkien is better, imo.

No, it´s an ongoing series, reading them alone wouldn´t work, as it´s one big story...sorry, man.

Age of Fire series is pretty good but I god-tier is pretty subjective
User avatar #5804 to #5801 - captnnorway ONLINE (01/27/2015) [-]
I wouldn't call it god-tier but the Far World series is enjoyable. Starts out pretty generic with a world where everyone can do magic and thus technology hasn't progressed much. One of the main characters can't do magic at all, or opperate any magic device, so she's pretty much useless in that world. At the same time there's a guy in "our" world it's set somewhere in America around year 2010 or something. who is completely paralyzed. He's also an orphan and is harrased by the other kids all the time.

Ye it sounds pretty cliche ... But the idea is that the girl can drag the guy into her world for a short period of time. He gets progressivly sicker, so he can only stay for around 3 days I tihnk. Luckily for him, when he's in the magic world he can actually move and can use magic. You quickly find out that he can drag her into his world as well, with the same limitations on her obviously. She still can't use magic in the normal world, but at least she's no alone anymore. They are also being chased by some evil guys, nothing new there.

It's pretty interesting. Also a cool concept of Magic. Starts out pretty cliche though, but if you past that it's a good read.

I've been reading various books on Buddhism, as I have been practicing it over the last couple of years. Recently, I have been reading a book called "The Art Of Happiness: A Handbook For Living". This is a really great read that offers a lot of practical and applicable Buddhist concepts and ideals that people can adopt into their own lives, even if they aren't a Buddhist. If you want to find yourself on a path to happiness, I highly recommend this book as a great place to start.

I just wish that DC would completely fail financially so Marvel can take over the few DC-Heroes Aquaman, Flash, Constantine, Superman that I like and include them. I´ve always wanted to see a Two-Atlantis-Narmor/Aquaman-Crossover-Thingie.
