Thanks, Tom! Is this the same as the “Game of Thrones” series? I’ve heard from several people that it’s really good.
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…
Doh! By the way, Uli, you were one of those “several people” I mentioned.
How do you like Eragon? I thought about reading for a while now…
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.
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!
