"“The Knife of Many Hands” by R. Scott Bakker - This was interesting. At first, I found myself struggling mightily with the names and wondering if I was at a big disadvantage by not having read any of Bakker’s work before. I still felt like that by the end, but came to appreciate his prose and imagination. It ended up being a good sample of his work, but I'll probably avoid reading the novels. Too much work."

The Grey Bastards by Jonathan  French
" No worries, it's just once a year that we do that for a special health project. We'll do a smaller one in October, but otherwise that's not the norm. "

Chris
Chris is on page 55 of 432 of The Grey Bastards: I'm really liking this book so far. I definitely get the "Sons of Anarchy" reference in the cover flap as it has that biker gang feel to the story so far. Very entertaining and I don't want to put it down.

Mark  Lawrence
“A book is as dangerous as any journey you might take. The person who closes the back cover may not be the same one that opened the front one. Treat them with respect.”
Mark Lawrence, Red Sister

Joe Abercrombie
“Honour, eh? What the hell is that anyway? Every man thinks it's something different. You can't drink it. You can't fuck it. The more of it you have the less good it does you, and if you've got none at all you don't miss it.”
Joe Abercrombie, Before They Are Hanged

Steven Erikson
“Kallor shrugged. '[...] I have walked this land when the T'lan Imass were but children. I have commanded armies a hundred thousand strong. I have spread the fire of my wrath across entire continents, and sat alone upon tall thrones. Do you grasp the meaning of this?'

'Yes,' [said Caladan Brood.] 'You never learn.”
Steven Erikson, Memories of Ice

Frank Herbert
Arrakis teaches the attitude of the knife - chopping off what's incomplete and saying: 'Now, it's complete because it's ended here.'

- from "Collected Sayings of Maud'Dib'' by the Princess Irulan”
Frank Herbert, Dune

Stephen King
“What was he thinking? The Internet did not predict the future; only the pink Kindle did that.”
Stephen King, The Bazaar of Bad Dreams
