Just finished Foundation, Foundation and Empire, Second Foundation by Isaac Asimov.

I'm surprised how much I've enjoyed them! When I was younger I wasn't much into sci-fi. :P


I was into Issac Asimov and read these in year 9 into year 10 of Hogh School. Loved these three! I then read Dune by Frank Herbert. Went on to read the next five books in that series and enjoyed them a lot. Then a friend told me about The Hobbit....

So I'm presently reading 'Gardens of the Moon' by Steven Erikson, and will follow it up with Deadhouse Gates. I'll then go and rate it and write a review of my own.


I've read Malazan Books of the Fallen 6-7 years ago - I've finished Gardens of the Moon and have almost finished Deadhouse Gates. I really liked the first book of the series - the various storylines and points of view, the complexity and the consistency of the plot. But I got carried away at some point and left the second book around 200 pages from the end. I should take and example of you, Hanasian, and re-read them once again from the start. :)


Yeah, I found Gardens of the Moon a bit scattered as I read through it the first time. It was like when I read The Black Company the first time, it was a bit tough to get into. But I did get into Gardens of the Moon, and couldn't put it down once I got used to the various sub story lines. The issue with Deadhouse Gates is I don't like Kindle, but prefer a book in hand. I'm old-school like that. And by the time I got ahold of Deadhouse Gates, it had been a couple months. I do need to give it a solid re-read, as I did The Black Company. Once I got it down and quit comparing what I was reading to other worlds I read, it all fell into place.

I'm going to start reading the trilogy again. Haven't read it through yet this decade.

I read LoTR a few weeks ago, so this year. :)

Currently I'm reading a book on astronomy (this kind of stuff massively outnumbers fiction books in our collection).
