Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erikson
"This was a tough book to get into.

There is no spoon-feeding here. You are thrown into the world that Erikson created with no back story or explanation. Although there is a glossary of important terms and people. I suggest putting it to good use, l..." Read more of this review »

G.R. Reader
“No, I have never had a problem finding books to read. But I have had a problem finding people who understand what it's like to really LOVE reading. Maybe even need it. People who associate periods of their life with the kinds of things they were reading then, whether in school or in dusty old rooms of a house in Holland. The kind of people who take personal journeys into books and write responses that are part review, part stories in themselves. This is what Goodreads has always given me.”
G.R. Reader, Off-Topic: The Story of an Internet Revolt

R.A. Salvatore
“Loss of empathy might well be the most enduring and deep cutting scar of all, the silent blade of an unseen enemy, cutting at our hearts and stealing more than our strength; stealing our will. For what are we without empathy? What manner of joy might we find in our lives if we cannot understand the joys and pains of those around us?”
R.A. Salvatore, The Silent Blade

Neil Gaiman
“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes...you're Doing Something.”
Neil Gaiman

Cory Doctorow
“A number is random if the simplest way to express it is by writing it down.”
Cory Doctorow, Homeland

Frank Herbert
“A plan depends as much upon execution as it does upon concept.”
Frank Herbert, Dune
