Just finished the audio book of Rothfuss's Name of the Wind and it was excellent.  It was so good, I'll need to read it sometime.  I usually only listen to audio books after I've first read them, but this was at the library and I do love being read-to when doing dishes/folding clothes/riding bikes.   Thanks for the recommendation and the review.

Just finished Gathering Storm and I thought it was pretty awesome, though I felt that Mat was a bit off.

Andrew the Great is Richard???? Cool  ;D

I will kill you. With my copy of the Gathering Storm. Because I said so. And because honestly, it'd be easier than any other suitable method of killing you. That book is big......

I will still kill you. Though, possibly not as violently.

And Silk, of course I can sing. I'm good at everything. Obviously.

hi.  just got back from vacation.  returned with 87bazillion novels to read and review.  luckily I didn't have to pack them on the plane...

and for my moment of geekdom, I had a nice long chat with Steven Erikson and his co-author Ian Cameron Esslemont.  they were full of coolness.

I'm so jealous.
If I had any clue, would I be here?

Yeah, we posted a Gathering Storm review--it was hard to write.  Next week we'll have Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol--it was easy to write.

Interesting review.  I had no idea our feelings were so similar regarding The Wheel of Time.  Personally, I'm waiting on all 14 to come out before I dedicate a few months of my life to plowing through them all again.

Heheheh. Thanks for that review, guys. Seriously, brightened my entire day.

Also: The Ghost King was waiting for me today! I look forward to ... uh, well, not reading it until December when I have time, but still. ::)
