Hyperion is a great book. The scene where he goes down the endless steps and in to the old catacombs was truly edge of the chair anticipation. Movie potential in this one. Imagine how awesome the Shrike's appearance would be? Guilermo del Toro to direct!

Haha
! Nobody is brave enough to admit they don't rate lord of the rings. It's my secret too. The truth is I too couldn't read it. On and on and on it goes with no end in sight. We must thank Peter Jackson for redeeming it!

For series, with the exception of Pratchett I tend to burn out after a book or two, but these are some of my favorites:

Phil Pullman's His Dark Materials series (probably #1 after Pratchett for me)
Scott Lynch Lies of Locke Lamora
RS Belcher - Sixgun Tarot, Shotgun Arcana
Patrick Rothfuss Name of the Wind
Gene Wolf Book of the New Sun
Joe Abercrombie Blade Trilogy
Michael Moorcook
GRRM's Game of Thrones
Stephen King's Dark Tower

Been meaning to read Hyperion for a while now... time to get to it after seeing some recommendations here
I'm also chuffed nobody's put Harry Potter yet

I read loads of both Fantasy and Sci Fi, and almost never about non-humans (Pratchett probably has the most out of what I read). I tend to read mostly about wizards, or low tech second world fantasies.
