Just about everyone he was in. I guess my favorite was when no one would tell him what he had prophesied and he kept hounding everyone to tell him and no one paid him any mind.
10915 I savored the depth of the read. I definitely experienced more fully and deeply the characters and the world. I am often guilty of skimming, but felt no compulsion to skip ahead while reading this rich tale.
10915 I felt sorry for Dakar. He had some of the most interesting scenes though.

10915 If I'm not squared away, nothing would get done or read. :)
10915 To be completely honest I was confused until they went through the world gate(s) and got to Athera. I'm way to dependent upon maps! I spent hours minutely scrutinizing the interactive map on your website trying to find the locations presented during the initial stages of the story. :)
10915 I read this one: The Curse of the Mistwraith (Wars of Light & Shadow, Arc 1, #1) by Janny Wurts

10915 I'm currently reading God Stalk by P.C. Hodgell. Next up will be The Forever War by Joe Haldeman.

My tentative reading plan for July is here:

I didn't quite make my goal of ten books in June, but I got close:
10915 Placed this on hold at the library today. Should get it in a couple of days and be able to start reading it over the holiday weekend.

10915 I finished To Kill a Mockingbird yesterday. It was very good.

Started God Stalk by P.C. Hodgell.

10915 I finished Starship Troopers last night - - and I'm starting To Kill A Mockingbird for something completely different this morning.
10915 I finished this over the weekend. Looking forward to the discussion.

10915 Over the weekend, I finished Curse of the Mistwraith, Firestorm of Dragons and The Big Sleep.

Not sure where I'm going next. I may attempt another quick read, probably Starship Troopers before tackling Warbreaker while on a business trip.
10915 I've been reading Curse for the last week. If I didn't have to work, I'd have finished it by now. Very well written and gripping.

Ack! I shouldn't have read your post. I'm only 2/3 finished with Curse. :)
10915 I'll second A Song for Arbonne as I read that last month and loved it just about as much as Tigana.

It's all I can do not to keep reading while at work. :P

I'll be lucky if I get to bed by midnight if the pace and plot keep pushing the pages through my fingers. :)

10915 Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson ... Brandon is signing and numbering my copy this afternoon and it will be in the mail to me first thing Monday morning. :)

10915 I just received a twitter from Tor books that David Eddings has passed away. Oh what a sad day!
