RE: [Groop]Re: Summer reading list



Any of the series by David Eddings are great.  If you are not looking for a
series, he has 2 books out (Belgarath & Polgara) which are single books.

	I'm a big fantasy fan and the best series I've read (mebbe 2nd best
after LOTR)
	must be "The Belgariad" by David Eddings. It was the 1st fantasy
books that I
	have read and it really made me hooked onto the genre.

	As for Sci-Fi, I would recommend the Wing Commander series for light
reading and
	Dune for heavier stuff. The WC series is action packed and nail
biting, but
	maybe I'm biased coz I loved the computer games first. Dune is
wonderful book
	that just transports and engrosses you into another universe. Great
Stuff !

	Dang, its hard to think of something to recommend, given the genres
I read
	most of what I'm trying out this summer have prolly been read by
those
	interested in it.

	Hardcore Fantasy fans, check out the Wheel of Time series, Robert
Jordan.
	Very long, but engrossing, it won't even feel overly prolific,
despite the
	1000 pages per book.  I'm up to the second, and enjoying it.

	Darmha Bums by Jack Kerouac.  I loved on the Road and others by him,
finally
	gonna read this one.  Great one of the beat writers of the
fifties/early
	sixties.

	Speaking of beat writers, I'm rereading William Burroughs
Xterminator!  Of
	all his free flowing thought writings, this one hits me the hardest,
prolly
	cause of the constant Navy references. : )

	Comic wise, all those non regular comic readers (I know a lot of you
read
	Groo and nothing else from the comic store), of course as every
summer I
	reread the Watchmen, one of the best pieces of literature of the
late 20th
	century, by far the best piece of comic literature ever (IMO).  If
you
	haven't heard of it or been putting it off, now's the time to enjoy
this
	masterpiece.  I garantee you'll surprise yourself.
	For humor fans, pick up the Deadpool TPB of his on going series, the
best
	(and funniest) thing Marvel has going now.  Also, Terry Moore's
Strangers in
	Paradise is a wonderful series, check out these TPB's if you get the
chance.
	No superheroes or funny swordsman, just dang good storytelling.

	Enjoy!

	Gabe
