    Song of Fire and Ice series.

    • ardaquila says:

      Thanks, Tom! Is this the same as the “Game of Thrones” series? I’ve heard from several people that it’s really good.

      • Uli says:

        Uh… Yes it totally is! But beware – the series is not complete yet, there are only 5 books for now and you will be left with not knowing where the story goes for at least another 2-3 years…

      • ardaquila says:

        Doh! By the way, Uli, you were one of those “several people” I mentioned.

  2. Uli says:

    How do you like Eragon? I thought about reading for a while now…

    • ardaquila says:

      So far, so good, although I’m only a few chapters in. It’s come highly recommended from many sources. I vow to re-comment once I’ve read it the whole way through.

      • ardaquila says:

        I’ve just finished reading “Game of Thrones” and it was FANTASTIC! Thanks to everyone for the recommendation and to my Austrian friends for giving me the book!

Please leave a reply. I'd love to hear from you!
