Cheers for the recommendations I had a quick listen and it sounds like some cool stuff.  I'll need to take some time out and really have a good listen. Just one more thing added to my to do list (will it never end).  Oh well I just need to make sure I make some time.

I agree about the shopping I can't stand it but I always make the exception for my books.  I could spend all day shopping for a book no problem.

I was meaning that generally, I personally don't fall into the main woman stereotype either so please don't take offense as I said I do tend to irritate other women with my views.  Don't know why must be a talent  :P

I've heard that one before and also think it's hilarious yet I have to admit that it's so typical of us women.  Funny enough a lot of women get mad at me for admitting to that. ;D  Oh well that's just me, I'm very in touch with my masculine side.

The Dreamers series was the first Eddings book I ever read and I haven't been able to pick up another Eddings book since.  I'm afraid the series sickend me.  I agree the first 2 books where ok, I like a few of the characters and was getting into the story but it all went down hill from there and the ending what was the guy thinking.  Seriously!  That just completely made the first 3 books redundant and pointless.

It's really a shame as I've heard many people say Eddings is good but I don't know whether I'll ever be able to bring myself to buy another of his books to see.  Maybe some day but I wouldn't hold my breathe.

I can't wait for it and I'm already saving so I can travel if I have to just to get my copies signed.

If I remember correctly I was 15 and it was Phillip Pullman's His Dark Materials that really propelled me into fantasy.  Prior to that I was heavily into point horror books.  I probably would still be a big horror reader now if I hadn't picked The Golden Compass up at the book fair to do a book report on for  english class.  I've never looked back although I still branch out occasionally.

Ok that made absolutely no sense there until I happened to go check my twitter updates.

Now it makes sense.   :P

Haperez,  I thought the farseer trilogy was really good.   For me it was something different as it was the first book I'd read that was from a first person vp.  I think it had a good story and loved the characters, in fact I got quite involved with them.
I was recommended the book myself and would certainly recommend it to anyone else.

Bought The Name Of The Wind today so that should keep me busy for a day or so.

Well that's me just finished it and I have to say it was good.  Not my usual style but enjoyable.  I loved the characters which is a big pull for me and it had some nice conflict, always a good thing I think.  The ending was nicely done sort of open ended but still with a bit of closure, a nice little balance.  It is a nice change from my usual trilogies and epic fantasies. 

I look forward to reading more of your work.

That's me just about to start reading it.  I'm actually pinching it off my daughter (such a bad mum :o) who bought it and I then realized it was one I had intended to buy myself.  After listening to the latest Writing Excuses podcast I can't wait for her to finish it, so will read it while she's at school.  I let you know what I think when I'm done, which shouldn't be too long as I'm a fast reader.

Congrats on the #1.
