    Just finished The Secret History by Donna Tartt. This was her first novel and was excellent!

    I'm on to "Soldiers Live" now. It's the last Black Company book that's been written to date. Since this is the last one, I don't remember it at all. I've only read it once, so it's like reading a brand new book. :)

    Truancy - Isamu Fukui

    This one won't be out until March '08, written when the author was 15 (he's now 16), and it's aimed at teens and older---but don't think this is Eragon by any means! Assassination and terrorism against an educational system run amok are adult themes, indeed.

    Think Ender's Game meets 'Another Brick in the Wall' with a touch of anime-like action. I've completely forgotten that I'm reading a book written by a kid...and that's high praise. Hopefully it will hold up until the end.

    I'm now reading Brokedown Palace by Steven Brust, and The Black Company by Glen Cook. I read the first Black Company book a couple of years ago and didn't like it much but I'm giving it another try based on Yippee38's recommendation.

    Neil Gaiman's Complete Sandman-Vol 1

    I'm not that big on comics, but the Sandman series is amazing, and worth a look by anyone who appreciates deep storytelling.

    Just finished "Walk On", which is the spiritual journey of U2. Pretty interesting stuff - when rock and roll and religion clash!!

    I've read through Midnight Tides and I still don't understand what the f*** is going on! heh. I like House of Chains the best thus far; that was where I was first able to put together a more comprehensive overview, and it took me far less time to slog through it.

    Children of the Night was better than Carrion Comfort, but CC was also his first book, I think, and it shows; there's some grindingly painful prose in it. COTN, however, made me want to hop on the next plane to Eastern Europe, vampires or no vampires. I liked The Terror too. Olympos, not so much.

    Song of Kali was his first. I like a lot of this other books better than Carrion Comfort, too. But at least it's better than Fires of Eden! :)

    I'm on the last book of a series by Richard Morgan. "Altered Carbon" was the first book, then "Broken Angels", and I'm on "Woken Furies." You can look them up on Wikipedia if you have interest. They are kind of cyberpunkish, set in the far future, where you can swap bodies but maintain your being. It's violent, shootem up kind of scifi, main character is kind of a supercommando. I didn't care much for the second book, but the first and third are decent fun.
