you should not take my comments out of context and make a suggestion about my morals in general. That's drawing a very long bow indeed.

My comments above relate only to the issue of copyright..."


That is how I see it, agree 100%.

I want to second A Song of Ice and Fire. Read 1st book, it was wonderful.

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1) by George R.R. Martin
33948 Dorian, Fier, and Solon do get more attention and spotlight in books 2&3.

As for stronger female characters....you'll have to read for your self and see what happens in that front:)
33948 I absolutely loved this book, so I'll agree to disagree about most things in your review.

All except one....Elaine! I hated her and she annoyed me to no end. The thing that I found most illogical about her is the way she turned out. It just doesn't match the condition's she grow up in, or people she grew around.

She turn's out the be this naive, goody two shoes mary sue miss perfect saint wannabe. It feels forced to me. Because she was old enough to remember everything when she was taken off the streets. And street wise mentality stays with a person.

And this thing about feeling guilty about her scar, not logical.

And then is the thing that her wanting to do good only brings unnecessary troubles.

Elaine is supposed to be a pure good influence and bring out all the best and all that, but In me she brings out the wish to see her run-over by the heard of wild elephants:)
33948 I have already read the whole series. It is one of my all time favorites. I must say I envy you guys who are reading it for the first time, it is an amazing book.

33948 There is a chronological timeline. But there is no real need to read novels in any strict order. Its not set in stone:)

Each series deals with its own events, and it usually explains all you need to know at the beginning.

I looked up Forgotten Realms on wiki, so i got a general idea on what it is, then i took a series that looked interesting.

33948 No, never played the board game. Never managed to get the right people together.

I read on my Laptop and all my books are in there, not enough room for the 'real' ones.
I do have Kindle for pc, but prefer Calibre and use it for all my book-ish needs.

33948 YES! I love Ravenloft. Its considered quite a obscure world, not many people even know about it and are always asking me if the book quality is any good. It is!

Ravenloft has a gothic-horror setting and can appear anywhere to swallow up new worlds. Dark forces that rule there are attracted to evil in other worlds. But what you really need to know is that when the mists appear, you're in trouble:)

I also like Forgotten Realms.
Haven't jet read any of DragonLance.
