Books / Re: Best book you've ever read...

Mistborn was definitely a good book, but it is not my favorite. It really depends, but as far as the fantasy genre, I'd have to say The Deed of Paksenarrion by Elizebeth Moon. The world is immersive, the characters are well-developed and there is quite a lot of detail in the way the stories are told.

I wasn't terribly impressed with the movie, but I didn't hate it. I was expecting better from Norton and Tyler, and frankly, I was more touched by the scene that Tyler did with the CGI beast than anything Norton and Tyler pulled off.

That's harsh.

But it was about what I expected. The commercials made me wonder why I would ever find this even mildly entertaining. 300, while overhyped, actually had some reasoning behind the brutality.

Was it better than Snakes on a Plane? ;)

Firefly was supposed to be our next great sci-fi series, and instead it gets canceled.

Serenity is, and will be for the foreseeable future, one of my favorite movies.

When I read this book, I envisioned more of a paper and pencil style DnD gameplay, as well as a movie. It would be fairly easy to work off the 3.5 ruleset and create a lot of the elements involved in the book. But then again, I am fairly old-school.

My name is Justin, and I'm based out of Portland, OR. I suppose it is the closest thing to a home that I have, but having moved around a great deal in my life, I am hesitant to use that word. I'm an aspiring author, and although I don't attend college yet, I have plans to in the fall.

I've only very recently begun my love affair with fantasy novels, and I find that I have been completely entranced by the storytelling and imagery inherent in the genre. I have been a fan of sci-fi novels since the first grade, much to the dismay of my parents and teachers. The last novel, which  in fact I finished last night, was Elantris by Brandon Sanderson.

Elantris was my favorite, although I did like Mistborn a good deal. Still, the book has an unfinished feel, their is definitely a lot of potential in the book for a series. I hope it doesn't stay a stand-alone book.

Hint, hint.
