Intro


I'm starting a list of books here that I loved reading. While I could go on and on, I will try to limit myself to just the books that stand out. Many of my recommendations are intended for mature readers! Some of them have inappropriate material, and some will simply be beyond most young readers.
There are also some suggestions for younger readers as well.





Books for Adults


“The Fionavar Tapestry” by Guy Gavriel Kay
I don't recommend this series for younger readers, some of the subject matter is inappropriate for children.
I read quite a bit of fantasy fiction and sci-fi, and this is still on of my favorites. Kay is remarkably good at provoking an emotional response and getting you to care about the characters. The titles in order are The Summer Tree, The Wandering Fire, and The Darkest Road. His other books are even better. His other books are mostly Historical Fantasy and excellent. Tigana is the only one I've gotten to so far though.

The Burning Heart of Night by Ivan Cat and
The Eyes of Light and Darkness by Ivan Cat and Darren Sarvarri
Both are excellent stand alone sci-fi novels. If you like Sci-Fi, do yourself a favor and pick up one or both of these.


Ursula K. Leguin is another of my favorite authors. My first experience with her writing is the “Earthsea Cycle” series of books, which are very good. The first three are appropriate for the teen section, but some of the later books are more dark. She has also written some fantastic Sci-Fi. The Dispossesed and The Left Hand of Darkness will both leave you thinking about them.

David Wong has written a couple of excellent comedy/horror books “John Dies at the End” and __This Book is Full of Spiders: Seriously, Dude, Don't Touch It They are bizarre, interesting, and very funny. The first has been adapted into a movie. His other book Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits is a Sci-Fi thriller set in the near future. This one is fast-paced insanity through and through with all of the humor you'd expect from the author. I don't want to tip the plot though, so I'll leave it at that.







Books for teens and up


“His Dark Materials” series by Phillip Pullman. The movie based on the first book was pretty good they did a good job with casting I thought and were faithful to the spirit of the book. That said, the books are excellent. As with almost every book-to-movie translation the books have far more depth. The books in order are The Golden Compass (aka Northern Lights), The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass.

“Incarnations of Immortality” by Piers Anthony
the titles I remember are
On a Pale Horse, Wielding a Red Sword, and Being a Green Mother, but the series should be pretty easy to find.

The Discworld novels by Terry Pratchet are hilarious. Discworld represents* some of the best satire I've ever read and it gets better as you get further into the publishing series**.

Elizabeth H. Boyer's “World of the Alfar” series consists of four novels based on Scandinavian folklore. The Sword and the Satchel, The Elves and the Otterskin, The Thrall and the Dragon's Heart, and The Wizard and the Warlord. Good reluctant/unconventional hero stories with a different feel from your standard fantasy realms. I haven't gotten around to her “Wizard's War” or “Skyla” series yet, but I plan to check them out when I get a chance.






Books for younger readers


“The Dark is Rising” sequence by Susan Cooper. This series is very good. The various books follow the adventures of Will Stanton and others as they try to stop “The Dark” from turning the world into a place of evil. The first book was made into a movie called “The Seeker” which was extremely mediocre. Don't let the forgettable movie put you off though, these books are excellent. I first read them when I was about 12 and loved them.

“Danny the Champion of the World” by Roald Dahl. Roald Dahl has written many excellent children's books including “The Witches”, “Matilda”, and of course “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”. I have yet to read a book written by him that disappointed.

“The Chronicles of Narnia” by C.S. Lewis. Most of you are probably familiar with these books already. They are rather heavy-handed with Christian allegory, but if you can look past that they are still a fun read.

Footnotes (footnoted)




*Insofar as any inanimate objects can be said to represent anything
**I say publishing series because there is seems to be some debate*** about whether you should read the books in publishing order, chronological order, character-based order**** or completely disregard any order whatsoever and just pick the cheapest one first.
***Such a debate is (in my opinion) contrary to the spirit of these books, not to mention, just plain silly.
****character order refers to grouping books that involve the same character(s)(e.g. reading all the stories with Rincewind the wizard), although, if you truly needed this footnote, perhaps something like “See Spot Run” would be more appropriate*****.
*****I hope I haven't offended any die-hard fans of “See Spot Run”.

-->back to the Terry Pratchet review (it's about time)

The preceding joke was entirely too long and even more unforgivable... not funny. Rest assured that the writers of that joke have been severely chastized and sent to bed without any dinner.

I appologise fer da last apologee and da joke b4 it, da uther writters seamed to tink dat steeling jokes frum bettur writters wood go unotice. Da writters hav all bin sacked.

Just to be clear, I know that I totally stole that joke from Monty Python. I am OK with that and if your aren't then... Ni! ;)
