    And how is it so far? I have it on my Kindle and will get to it after Wool and Leviathan Wakes...but I have fear. When Goodkind is good, he's great, but when he's bad....oh he is so bad.

    You're not kidding. I had to walk away from his series when he did that "communism is bad, mmmkay" Sword of Truth book. I forget which one that was (5 or 6), but it made Animal Farm seem downright subtle.

    I stopped early on because another book that I have been waiting on was released and I dove right into it:

    I only lasted 3 books before I tired of it. To be honest, I got more enjoyment out of the TV series than I did with his books, tho I'll always like the promise that was shown with the first book.

    As an update, finished:

    I have zero experience with this series. It was on sale so I took a chance.

    The great thing about having a Barnes & Noble in a podunk town is that they don't pay attention to the release dates for authors outside what goes on their big displays. I picked one of my favorite author's new one up on Saturday...it comes out tomorrow everywhere else.

    Excellent book. I read it when I was in eighth grade and have since revisited a couple times. Great choice.

    Look a little closer. This one is "The Eerie Adventures of the Lycanthrope Robinson Crusoe." :lol:

    It's actually a pretty cool spin that uses the bulk of the original book but reimagines Crusoe as a werewolf stranded on an island of Cthulhu worshippers.

    I was GONNA say...get out of my head....because Robinson Crusoe was the first "adult" book I ever read, and late last month I got a kindle edition to read.....but THAT is awesome. I will also have to check it out for sure! And...as a side note...this is an expensive forum to be on! And that's coming from someone who was active in Corvette forums! :lol:
