Thanks James. And there would be more I can't remember off the top of my head. Peace.
Thank You - there are some there that I haven't read. More book fun for me! Also it's interesting to see that you rated Drizzt so high. I liked the series, but found that the storyline tended to repeat itself a lot. What made that series special were the self reflections on humanity and life by Drizzt. I have to admit that I was quoting him a lot as I read those. :)
Yeah, Drizzt Do'Urden really speaks to me. I mean, what an outsider. From being raised in Drow society to becoming a ranger of the goddess Meiliki, what a deconversion that had to be. And his internal doubts, reflections, pain that he goes through. Great character to my read. Thanks again,man. Fun. Be well.
Harry Potter! Yay!
I see some I need to add to my list .. here I go to Amazon
Excellent Series! I have read them all, even his son's additions. I have read to ones Frank wrote 2 or 3 times, they are even better the next time.
Great list there .. I like all that you listed there ... Harry Potter .. good stuff!
anyways I have a collection of Star Trek Pocket books .. and some Fantasy books ... like Dungeons and Dragons sort of pocket books to name a few .. my list would be so long
Hey Steph. I also read alot of the Star Trek pocket books, as I am a Star trek nerd. I once gushed at a visiting doctor at the hospital when I found out his daughter wrote the screenplay for the TNG episode, "The Most Toys", about the time Data was kidnapped to add to his collection. He must have thought I was nuts!
That was the one where Data almost killed the guy. Good episode.
Yes it was. Data was supposedely ruled by the three laws, but he was evolving. Did he shoot at the guy with the disruptor, because that would violate the 1st law, or was he already more evolved by this time, maybe following the zeroth law? Yeah, now I know that the doctor thought I was nuts.
My biggest pet peeve with TNG was that they killed Data at the end of Nemesis. Even if his memories were transferred to the other one, he wouldn't be the same. That was Data's opinion anyway when he said that if he transferred his memories to Lore, Lore would still not be him. Who's nerdy/nuts now? :)
