Awesome, I suppose. But I'm more preoccupied with when he and Denna are gonna do the do.
I'll read Slow Regard after I get a couple of other TBRs out of the way and I get my copy back from my friend.
Looking forward to the next novel, but I'm a little confused as to how Rothfuss will tie this up with just a single novel?
I mean, he has wonderful pacing and it seems out-of-style for him to wrap up the series in only 1000 more pages?
Anyone else concerned?
Anyone read "White Noise" by Don DeLillo? I've heard nothing but rave reviews from my friends about it so I'm getting it as soon as I can afford new books.
Read Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel. It's an apocalyptic story with interesting characters. It has got only praise from both critics and writers. A really good read.
Anyway, I finished reading Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier.
This was a great read. There is this really strange/eerie feeling to the book the entire time. Like something is very wrong and disturbing, but you aren't sure of what it is. Another interesting thing is that you never once learn the name of the protagonist. And she's the narrator, so it's just quite strange. A quirky, wonderful classic. I would suggest it, especially if you like things like Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, or those sorts of stories.
I also just finished the first novel in the Artemis Fowl series. I never got around to reading this as a kid/teen, but grew up hearing about it all the time. I made a deal with a girl at work that if she read the first The Name of the Wind novel, then I would read the Artemis Fowl series. And I'm pleased I made the deal!
Artemis Fowl is a cleverly written fantasy. The main character is a little shit and closer to a villain than hero, not to mention the humor in the book is funny and witty. It's almost like reading The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy for a slightly younger audience.

The Prince by Machiavelli
so... Time rated City on Fire pretty highly and it seems the novel is going to be adapted into a movie in the foreseeable future.. I guess I'm going to read that next, even though I heard that book is as thick as bricks.
Finished The Martian and will be seeing the movie tomorrow. It was a great read if you're into scifi at all. Outlandish yet realistic at the same time. Looking forward to seeing how it translates to the big screen.
Currently reading The Last Guardian. I have about fifty pages left and am not disappointed so far.
