Stephen King's, I like it.

I've been enjoying Martin's Song of Ice and Fire recently, and I'm in the process of acquiring the Thrawn series by a mister Timothy Zahn. It may be a Star Wars novel but I've heard nothing but good things about the quality of Zahn's work.
I just looked at the Wiki for that. Sounds a little bit beyond my level of understanding..... D:Originally Posted by 3
Is it easy for anyone to read? Or is it one of those books that would only interest those who hold knowledge on the subject?
Mind elaborating on the series a bit more for those who haven't read it (like myself). Would be nice to know why you're reading it and if it's something you'd recommend to others.Originally Posted by 247
Considering it sold over 1 million copies already, yeah, it's understandable that they're pushing the advertising like crazy. I wasn't really too sure about reading it but a coworker and some people I know recommended it to me, so I finally decided to check it out. Although I'm not interested in managing, it's a pretty entertaining and the way it's written makes the excerpts very easy to understand.Originally Posted by 157
It's a shame to admit this, but I only got half-way through the series. Unfortunately, the book got lost somewhere in the move out of my parents' house so I guess I'll have to buy a new copy if I can't find it the next time I go back.I'm reading the Hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy series for, like, the billionth time.
I don't even think I need to introduce it. If you haven't heard about it, you're seriously missing out.
What genre are those books? (For both authors.)Originally Posted by 367
What Happpened to Lani Garver. it is completely and honestly the best book I've ever read.
It's a fairly easy read actually. There's less than 200 pages as well I think, so it's no problem to go back and read it a second time. I think if you had any interest in the subject, it would make the book a better read, but at the same time, if you don't have any knowledge of it, it would still be interesting.Originally Posted by 261
Mind giving a brief summary to let us know why you liked it so much?Originally Posted by 17
The next time chance I get, I'll see if I can find a copy of it at Maruzen. They have a decent selection of original English-language books from what I've seen but whether they have that book or not, I have no idea. (I rarely go there since it's not very close to where I live.)Originally Posted by 3
If you like to read, something neat my friend does every year is compile a list of 25 books she intends to definitely read that year. She then takes 20 suggestions from people, and leaves the five spaces open for books she stumbles across during the year.
Something neat you might give a go, if that interests you.

I would definitely give this a try if I had enough time to read. I'm mostly limited to reading while on the train since I have pretty much zero free time at work and am pretty busy at home. If things do manage to change, however, I'll definitely give it a go.Originally Posted by 180
Canada is a pretty popular place here, so there may be a possibility they carry it. Hard to say for certain. I'll give it a look just to be sure. Even if it isn't there, I might find something else of interest. ^_^Originally Posted by 3
