Excellent thread. As soon as I saw the thread title, I knew instantly which one I would want, then I thought of others and how the first big book I
picked out on my own from the library at about age 11 was Ender`s Game, excellent series. There ended up being like about 10 or more books in all, I
was grateful that Card expanded that for us and still is. Why move on to other things when you`ve got something that is in great demand? And he has
done other things, great things from what I hear.
Then while the thread was loading on my phone I remembered the very first big book I ever picked up, Twilight Eyes, this was from stepdad`s
collection at home, I was 9 or 10. After reading it I was kinda surprised he let me read it. There are goblin sex scenes describing how brutal it was
and how grotesque the "member" was. There`s at least one part like that... But I seem to remember a rape scene It was a long time ago but I remember
that. They also live underground in tunnels, but also have lives above ground, or at least some. Kinda like the supposed reptilians.
Anyway, there are a lot I would like to see made into a movie. Even though the movie is never as good as the book. And remember it`s always
better to read the book first. You don`t want the movie to ruin the suspense of the book or you won`t want to sit through it. But there`s one sci fi
series I am religious about, and I would still like to see an attempt made at a film.
The series is known as The Hyperion Cantos, and the 4 books are titled as follows (Part I) "Hyperion" and "The Fall of Hyperion" (Part II)
"Endymion" and "The Rise of Endymion". The author is Dan Simmons. The first two books take place about 700-800 years in our future, the last two
are 200-300 years after that. I`ve only read the series once, a few years ago. I didn`t want to spoil it too much, but I recently bought the 1st three
and will probably start soon after I get a few others out of the way.
I`m experiencing some lag on my phone so I`ll make another post describing the book series a little more.
