Always been a sci fi and fantasy book nerd, ever since high school. I got fed up with the history books and all other books I was reading at the
time. So one day while in the store I picked a book to read during class or recess in the library. So I just grabbed the first book I seen off the
store shelve that looked like it would have adventure and a good story, and I confess I grabbed because the cover looked interesting, I didn't even
bother to read the back to see what it was about.
Anyways that book was "The Eye of the World" by Robert Jordan. And I have read sci fi books and fantasy books before but that book, and the timing
in my life in being feed up with other subjects really got me hooked into fantasy and sci fi books, from then on.
Here are some of the authors and books that I liked.
Robert Jordan and his wheel of time books that I mentioned already, are one of my favorites reads I had.
L.E Modesitt JR. Is also a good writer and his Saga of Recluse books are interesting, my favorite in those were the towers of sunset and the magic
Tad Williams is also another writer who's books I remember reading. And his Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn series. And also his Otherland series of
books were pretty good reads.
Sara Douglass....And DarkGlass Mountain books.
Brandon Sanderson...And the mistborn trilogy was an interesting read.
Robin Hobb...And the Farseer and The Tawny Man trilogies.
Currently I am reading George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books. I am almost at the end of book 3, and thought I read it sparingly because
I don't have the time really, it is an interesting series and story so far.
And pretty much all the other books that I would recommend have already been recommended in this thread. But I don't know about making any of the
above into movies, sure it could be done. But can they do them right, is always the case. Any of them could be either totally epic in movie form or
