I know there have been a couple of recommendation threads about books but figured we could do this similar to the movies thread. Just give your last book a rating and maybe let us all know what "kind" of book it is as far as fiction, non-fiction, fantasy, etc and maybe a quick one or two sentences on what it was about.
If you want you can go ahead and rate the last few books you've read since you can't go through books as fast as you can movies....at least I can't
I'm so off and on about reading it drives me nuts, but I'm getting back into it again.
Anyway, have at it!
I'm currently reading "The Secret History" by Donna Tartt (Fiction/Literature), thanks to Cu, and its a pretty solid read so far. Can't really rate it yet but based on the reviews and what I've read of it so far its something I may well recommend!
I read 90% of "The Gates of Fire" by Steven Pressfield(Fiction/Literature) because I ended up seeing the movie(300) before I finished the book. I won't go back and finish the book because it seemed to be very similar to the movie and I know how that ends. 7/10
The last book I've read fully was "First King of Shannara" by Terry Brooks (Fantasy) and plan on reading the whole series. It was a pretty solid book and can't wait to get back into the series, though it looks like I have a couple books to read before it. Anyway, its your "typical" fantasy with trolls, magic, elves, skull bearers, etc 7.5/10
