Brandon Sanderson / Re: WOT/Moraine's Letter to Thom

Moiraine is talking to Egwene, Nynaeve, and Elayne when she says she knows the name of the man she is going to marry.  It's in The Shadow Rising.

That is a great video.  I've always like song, and the video is done very well.  Thanks for the link.

I love Firefly and Serenity, my husband and I have watched both the series and movies multiple times.  I basically love anything Joss Whedon.  His writing and directing is awesome.

I loved Lightsong.  He made me think of a kid trying to figure out who he is, and how to grow up.  From petulance to curiosity to outright hilarity, he was great. His relationship with Llarimar was great, and setting the squirrel loose was awesome.  He was my second favorite behind Siri.

I just finished the second book in the Twelve Houses series by Sharon Shinn.  I'm still really enjoying the series and can't wait to get the third book. :-)  I also have Runelords waiting for me.

I'm reading Truth by Terry Pratchett, and I've also just finished the first book in the Twelve Houses series by Sharon Shinn.  I really enjoyed it, a good mix of action and politics, with some good characters.  I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

Books / Re: Anyone Try the Kindle?

I don't have a kindle but someone I used to work with got one for Christmas.  She said it's the coolest thing ever.  She said you can read it in the sun or anywhere, change the font size, and after a while, forget you are even reading a book.  But, despite the glowing review, I am going to wait for the next iteration.  Being a software developer, I never buy things on the first release.  :)

Movies and TV / Re: review: The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
« on: June 04, 2008, 04:39:49 PM »
I agree about Edmund, he was my favorite part of Caspian.  I loved Reepicheep as well, they did a great job with him.  I agree with the older kids being a little stilted, especially Peter and Susan.  I found myself really disliking Peter, after thinking of him as a great older brother in the first one.  But Edmund and Lucy have one more movie coming up, so we'll see if Edmund gets a bigger role.

I enjoyed the movie overall, but was a little disappointed in Marion.  In the first movie she was a very strong woman,  with some great scenes.  In this one she seemed to be almost a shrinking violet.  Somehow I don't think age would have changed her that much  :)

Just finished Mister B. Gone by Clive Barker.  Very interesting to read a book told by a demon.  Next up is Through Wolf's Eyes by Jane Lindskold, then on to Rules of Ascension.

Just started Blasphemy by Douglas Preston, and have The Great Hunt waiting for me. :-)

Brandon Sanderson / Re: Bookplates Question
« on: February 12, 2008, 11:19:11 PM »
I think $6 for up to four bookplates, signed and personalized, shipping included is a very reasonable choice.  It gives you a little compensation, while people still get a signed copy of the book without having to buy another one.  I just think it's great that you offer this at all.

Just finished His Dark Material's by Phillip Pullman.  Anyone know if Lyra's Oxford is a continuation of the story or a stand alone?

Also re-reading Eye of The World to get reading for the newest book
Elantris by Brandon Sanderson
Blue Coyote by Christopher Moore

Ok, my thought on this is that since Zane had a spike, he had gone part of the way towards becoming an Inquisitor, so like Marsh, he could hear the voice of the thing in the well, and it had some control over him.  And, I always thought there was something strange about the way Vin's mother killed her sister, seemed very ritualistic.  And, considering that her father was a highly ranked obligator, it makes me say hmmm.....  Anyway, that's just my two cents.  I can't wait until October.  Thanks Brandon for creating a world that has captured my interest like this.  It's been a long time since I have felt so engaged by a series.

Brandon Sanderson / Re: Atium question

To go back to the original topic, I am in the middle of MB2, and have the same question.  It makes logical sense that if there are mistings who can burn only one of the other metals, then there would be mistings who can burn only atium.

As for HP7, I enjoyed it.  It wasn't wrapped up as tight as some of the earlier books, but it was still a good story.
