*necromances thread*

Lady Chatterly's Lover. It's kind of literary, but if anything that's one of its better aspects. Not much sex in it so far ...  :unsure:

I finished Knife of Dreams at the weekend.

I didn't like the ending. Or much of the book, really. There were some bits I liked, but too much dithering and.... argh the bloody words in some parts of it were just ridiculously obscure. Like 'widdershins' - WTF!?! (of course I know what it means now, its a Scottish word for anticlockwise, but that just makes its use more baffling - stating the direction of the spiral staircase is really unnecessary.)

Anyhow, been wondering what to read next and I'm still not sure. I think I'll go start a vote and let people here decide. Smiley

I finally got around to reading The Woman in White.  It's kind of overwrought.

It's a load of bollocks. Sorta glad he's dying, in a way... puts a limit on how much longer he can draw it out.

Yes, but when he explicitly tells me half a sentence earlier that the stairs were designed to be defended against attackers coming up, that's enough for anyone with half a brain cell to figure that they go anti-clockwise so the defender's sword arm is more free than the attacker's. Tongue

Mmmm, although I keep reading quotes that claim he's said it'll be 12 books no matter how long/large the final one needs to be.
As long as it is a decent ending and not a horrible cliff-hanger thing. I hate things that just suddenly go "oh, and that's the end, goodbye" ...although of course big long drawn out "happily ever after" chapters can also be annoying.

Finished Mistress of the Empire at the weekend. Cheesy

Now I have to decide if to stick with Feist, or give The Northern Lights a try, like I said I would when I decided what to go for next ... nearly a whole half year ago. :blink:

Stick with it, there's no point starting another trilogy until you've finished the current one.

I agree, it just holds up in general.  Unless the book sucks, then drop that sucker like a sack of bricks

PS.
I'm still reading Eragon... I need to just set time aside to just finish the silly book. :sheep:
