The Dwarfes saga, by Markus Heitz.

 

As a fantasy appasionate, those 5 (eight if we count the prequels) books had been by far the best. Truly amazing story and written in a way that even the smallest details had a meaning in the whole, nothing left to the case. I personally found them a lot more enjoyable than the LOTR books, which I sadly read only after the movies (somehow they weren't at the level of their fama, but again they are quite old too).

Huge fan of "The God Delusion" and pretty much anything by Richard Dawkins. The man is a visionary. However, I have certain issues with his ideology. He tends to not only put down religion but also any form of spirituality. Which bothers me, but aside from that he is such a good artist

As a christian I should prolly open the book more often. :P

Thing is I hate reading, that's why I listen to audiobooks instead of reading them myself.

Many Christians don't know anything about what is actually written in their holy book, or what is missing. It is sad. The ones that did or do read it,.. The words of God are found in those pages, it is impossible that parts are missing. Nebro anyone?

Well I have read it and listened to it in my younger years quite often, so nowadays I so here and there read a chunk out of it.

And if I am done with my literature stuff this year I prolly read more often but that's my case.

I do agree that A LOT of Christians don't know what is all written in the bible or what their actual meaning is, since for example Jesus often used parabels to get his message across and in my experience not many know the meaning in the circle I've been in.

Herbert's Dune series.

 

People seem to dislike God-Emperor for some reason, but this is my 2nd favourite book after the Dune itself.

Read it twice through I think plus some random reading, probably should do more, but I'm just lazy AF.

I read the first two Dune books and liked them, IDK if I could read the whole series though.

Movies are awful.
 
Games are ok, cuz they don't touch the main plot i guess, just use the setting.

I did 5/6, can't start doing the chapterhouse, hope I'll get some time to read it anytime soon.

I like reading it, but just like you I'm reading chunks instead of chapters. It is quite hard to concentrate and understand what is being said after (usually) a short while.

 

Very true, and I am glad you agree with me.

 

Read it twice through I think plus some random reading, probably should do more, but I'm just lazy AF.

 

Proverbs 26. 13-16

 

- A sluggard says, “There’s a lion in the road, a fierce lion roaming the streets!”

- As a door turns on its hinges, so a sluggard turns on his bed.

-A sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he is too lazy to bring it back to his mouth.

-A sluggard is wiser in his own eyes than seven people who answer discreetly.

 

You're welcome. But nice that you have read it twice.. That's quite a feat.

Aight, Frank Herbert is Amazing. You wouldn't have your Star Wars/Star Trek or basically any non Poe/Lovecraft sci-fi, without the Dune series. All of the books are amazing. Even the prequels written by his children. God-Emperor Dune is probably the best out of them. I loved Heretics and Chapterhouse, especially when the Bene-Gesserit order begins terraforming Arakis piece by piece and the spice slowly begins to dwindle piece by piece.

Also write this down: The Movie with Patrick Stewart was bad. The BBC TV movie series was amazing.

when i was a teen i loved the two trilogies (neuromancer/idoru) by william gibson, the gone series by micheal grant, blackout/hideout/timeout by andreas eschbach (german, not translated), as well as epic/saga/edda by conor kostick
and obviously lots of other books (aside from like harry potter...)
- yeee i just loved generic teen books but who are you to judge

but being a student made me hate books xd
nah, but i just don't read much anymore when i'm free... should change that, really.
probably some different stuff though P:
