Borne by Jeff Vandermeer. I'm loving it so far. It is very imaginative. I'm enjoying it much more than I did Annihilation(I couldn't get into the other two Southern Reach books but did enjoy the first).

I love Jeff VanderMeer's writing style. I really liked Finch.

Did you know he co-wrote a book of short stories with Sanvean?

The Hatchet and the River were favorites of mine when i was in 2nd/3rd grade. super fun.
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

I didn't. But that is awesome. Something else to add to the list.

This dude's fight scenes are just the best.

Dune. I don't feel like Barnes and Noble makes many wise business decisions, but at least they keep a dozen copies of Dune on the shelf.

I love how truly -real- the cultures in Dune feel. From our own perspective, and I assume from the perspective of seventies' America, it also feels like how a culture of the future would really be--- to love technology until the society is dominated by it, and then instead turning to the powers and usefulness of the human mind and body instead, cultivating new abilities and latent old ones. Its really cool.

A continuation of the Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn trilogy, which was one of my first fantasy series I got really into.  It has a little blurb on it from GRRM about how that series influenced him into writing his own huge trilogy.  These books are awesome.

If you've never read them, it starts with 'The Dragonbone Chair'.  I recommend it to anyone who has time to read (they're large books).

Whoa, really? And it's called the Surgeon's Tale?

...sounds like a book for me.

I LOVE The Dragonbone Chair. Honestly, though, I only read up until the first time things got shitty, sometimes I just forget to keep reading because I'm busy with other things.
