On Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead, they may not be worse than much of the stuff that fills the shelves these days.

I'd agree that with Hazelle that most ppl bashing Ayn Rand haven't read her books, I recently got into a debate with someone of that ilk that obviously hadn't read any Rand.

Foundation Trilogy? I read it it along time ago, but I find it hard to understand why I thought it was worth reading now - even though Asimov is excellent when he is popularising science.

My pick would be E. R. Eddison : The Zimiamvian Trilogy

I sometimes make spelling and grammar errors but I don't pretend it's because I'm using a phone

I don't really read series like I used to when I was younger. But with me also, Lord of the Rings was a cherished companion. As well as the Horatio Hornblower books by C.S. Forester.


Most Admired? - Edward Gibbon and 'The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire'. That guy could really construct an elegant and beautiful sentence. And of note he was the major influence on Winston Churchill's prose style. But the long sentence, full of many subordinate clauses, now does seem out of place in the modern era.

You might want to look up the Honor Harrington books by David Weber for a series that is heavily influenced by the original HH. Tree cats rock!

Thanks for the suggestion. I read up on Honor Harrington on Wikipedia, and she does sound like an interesting character. And the science fiction aspect of following the career of a clever space ship commander might be fun too.

For me I will say the Codex Alera.  Hard to name one and I want to post others but I will not.  Tavi just struck a chord with me.  Probably because I'm furyless :)

I really enjoyed Codex Alera as well.

 

My all time leader, for all the downsides it has, is the Wheel of Time. Hell, I grew up with the damn series for the most part. I got The Eye of the World when I was like 10, caught up with his writing somewhere around Path of Daggers, and ended up waiting for every book after that.

 

Not my favorite series of all time, but Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn trilogy is pretty sweet. Sanderson is a master at crafting magic systems.

See, I didn't care for Mistborn but WoT is most likely my actual favorite series.  When Martin's Ice and Fire came out and everyone flocked to it I stuck with Jordan.  Had a few teamspeak arguments with a clannie in quake over it lol.

To the above poster: that is so funny I was thinking of "Walden" on my drive home from work today and how being outdoors really reengerizes me and that work came to mind. :) 

 

Rothfuss' storytelling is fantastic, imo.  I've seen some people say they are sick of Denna and Kvothe's fascination for her but I kind of liked it.

The Elric Saga, by Michael Moorcock.

 

Elric is the original anti-hero, he Is a tortured soul that has a sword that eats peoples souls.

 

He is very sickly, and the energy from the souls gives him super strength and keeps him alive.

Yep all of the Eternal Champion books are good, I like Hawkmoon as well.

It took me ages to find a mint condition hard cover version of the Complete Book of Swords. I'm afraid to read it lest I damage it.

/high five!

I hate to say it but I didn't really enjoy his other series (eg. Face of Apollo).

I also liked Starseed by Spider Robinson and Jeanne Robinson, The Talismans of Shannara  by Terry Brooks, and 1984 by George Orwell.

I think Riftwar would be mine, too. Currently re-reading this series :)

Series are tough for me to read, usually. I usually enjoy the first book or two as I meet and get to know the characters involved. But then most series have a tendency to wonder off, seeking quite different stories from the original idea. Feist's Riftwar series kept me interested as all his characters grew in every book, keeping connected stories going on.

I also need to mention Anne McCaffrey's Dragon Riders of Pern series, too. But eventually, I lose interest, like when they start using the dragons for interstellar space travel. She explains the process well and makes it believable, it just journeys into areas I personally did not enjoy as much. Her "supplemental" books are good reads, too, as she takes a deeper look into some characters and history of Pern.

Anne McCaffrey's Sci-Fi series "Acorna the Unicorn Girl" is also worth mentioning. I love the first 3 books before she lost my interest :) (Not a big fan of time travel.)

I have had a fun time reading Wen Spencer's "Tinker" series. She recently came out with book #3 about a year ago. This is one of those few books where I find myself laughing out loud as I read them. Often.

As a child, Encyclopedia Brown was TOPS!

So many books... so little time...

Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

^ My second grade students still read Encyclopedia Brown!  Those were classics for sure. 

Anne McCaffrey's books helped start my love for the genre!  Her books, along with the Drizzt books, began my love of all things fantasy.

I haven't read a series since I was a wittle boy. Animorphs were fun to read. I read them all except the last book or two. No idea why I read the thirty books or so that made up the series and stopped a couple of books short. I liked it because the kids mattered and could make a difference. Pretending to be the different animals was fun too.
