August 16th.  I won't be reading or reviewing it for Elitist Book Reviews in case anyone is wondering.  I put myself through a lot of punishment for that blog, but this is one step I'm not willing to take.

That being said however, I fully support anyone's desire to read the novel.  As long as it keeps a person reading, I can't say too much.  To each his own.

You still need to review the Warded Man. Take one for the team, Steve.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Already has.  Several, in fact.

And I wouldn't touch Omen Machine with a three-mile pole.  I might consider a three-mile island however...

I'm going on a binge where I only read books I WANT to read.  I need to wash the taste of bad novels from my, uh, eyes.  Or something.

A guy can only take so much punishment before he goes nuts.  I nearly reached that point a month ago.

I, on the other hand, am quite fond of his work, despite some...ah...flaws. Any books you guys know of that would be impressive enough to change my mind?

Really kind of depends.  You could go to my blog and check out the bajillion novels we've reviewed.

I know WriterDan will point as quickly as possible to Daniel Abraham.  I personally enjoy Adrian Tchaikovsky, Joe Abercrombie, and Steven Erikson.

Honestly I have no idea what Peter likes.  Sometimes we agree to the point of feeling a little creeped out, then other times we couldn't be further apart with our opinions.

Edit:  Shiael - I also hope I didn't come across as bashing your taste in reading.  I personally don't care for Goodkind much, but I respect your right to like whatever you want (whatever lets your mind wander).  If everyone liked the same thing life would get boring.
