Re: Favorite Book/Series?

So many to choose from, but at the moment i'd have to say Michael Moor****'s Eternal Champion series.

Other faves include The Wheel Of Time series by Robert Jordan, anything by Tolkien, Stephen King, Brian Lumley or David Gemmell, Terry Pratchett's Discworld books and Fritz Leiber's Swords series.

Rock on!

Re: Favorite Book/Series?

My favorite book is 1984 by George Orwell. My favorite series is the Discworld series by Terry Prachett.

Leaves of Grass --Walt Whitman

Series? I'd have to say the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Or Harry Potter.

The Silmarillion from Tolkien is my favorite book.

Is also like the Alchemyst series by Michael Scott. Very well written.

As for series I love the Fletch and Flynn books from Gregory McDonald...

Re: Favorite Book/Series?

Frank Herbert's- Dune series are epic masterpieces.
Rex Stout's- Nero Wolfe novels are the epitome of a good detective story and in my
opinion rival Sherlock Holmes.
Lee Child's - Jack Reacher novels are just good kick ass fun.
