Tawny man is a part of Royal Assassin serie, isn't it? Only 15 years after the war. I read the 2 first books from Soldier son trilogy but Fitz story was better .

Let's see...
As everyone else, LotR and Silmarillion (I liked the former more), The Chronicles of Amber by Roger Zelazny and all of Ursula Le Guin's Earthsea books.

Black magicians trilogy as mentioned before
The Chronicles Of Ancient Darkness series (better known as the wolf brother series)
Artemis Fowl books
The Demonata series by Darren Shan

I used to be like an inheritance fanboy... then i saw the film and saw what a mockery it was, then i saw huge flaws in the plot, things that didnt add up then i realised how plagiaristic it was... it was basically star wars in middle earth... then i read "fanfiction" which was a million times better which contradicted the book and showed me how little depth there is to it, your meant to hate a man who has done nothing that bad really... then the last book just disgusted me i promised myself i would get it and although i knew it would suck i still got it and half way through i was almost asleep and by the end i wanted my money back...

Also another good book i have found is Jack Flint and the redthorn sword its a very good story based on a lot of old myths and stories too specially scottish and irish ones celtic legends are among the best along with the greek ones

lolololol each to their own i guess their not the best of books admittedly but their easy reading and actually rather fun if you want a hard read try a dan brown book :/ i read digital fortress its absoloutely huge, or well it would be if it had a decent sized print, they made the book have small print to get it a decent size, a 1500 page book into about 650... its a good story but you gotta be serious when reading it

Dan Brown is not a hard read. His language is simple, undescriptive and for the most part rather tedious, though admittedly I did find Digital Fortress fastpaced. The rest I found mediocre at best.

I havent read his other digital fortress wasnt hard in the vocabulary but the speed, the small print and my inability to just read that style and accept it threw me off
I'm the sort of guy that questions things that happen in a book if its realistic :/ thats why i prefer fantasy my favourite books are definitely 'the chronicles of ancient darkness' though
I love stories where the characters have special bonds and you can actually see the bonding between the characters, in many books you get a general feeling but not really enough that YOU can feel it and see it

I love books with anti-heroes. The Catcher in the Rye, Frankenstein (to an extent)... I think they're original.
