  1. The Lies of Locke Lamora was a fun book that took a fairly standard epic fantasy setting and did some fun things with it. The Eye of the World is a brilliant book and an excellent beginning to a series that is truly Epic in every sense of the word.

  2. Lies of Locke Lamora is painfully awesome. A word to the wise, don’t immediately jump into the sequel and you’ll enjoy it more. The second book is very good, but it’s very different in pacing and tone to the first.

  3. Ohhh…good luck with 2666. I’m stuck at about halfway through Part 4, and the story (for me) didn’t start getting good until about halfway through Part 3.

  4. You’re currently reading Cloud Atlas, one of my all-time favorites!!!
