    It's springtime in Styria. And that means war. There have been nineteen years of blood. The ruthless Grand Duke Orso is locked in a vicious struggle with the squabbling League of Eight, and between them they have bled the land white. While armies march, heads roll, and cities burn, behind the scenes bankers, priests, and older, darker powers play a deadly game to choose who will be king.

    Lore says: "Solid, but not as good as the First Law trilogy."
    "I Hate This Book."
    Overall

    This book is a turd of diamond. By the end of the first audio segment, I was in a mood to set fire to kittens. by the second, I wanted to massacre every single pro/antagonist myself. Halfway through the third, I swore I'd delete the entire accursed thing from my hard drive. By the end of the last segment, I desperately needed a hug, but feared human contact.

    I hated nearly every minute of this book, and yet every time I decided I couldn't bear the spleen-imploding misery of the plot's latest apocalypse, Abercrombie would bash my face in with another epiphany of prosaic genius. This is one of the most gratuitous, disgusting, brilliant, and unique things I've ever read.

    If you lack any trace of suicidal tendencies, have friends who will tolerate a massive week-long mood swing, and do not own a particularly flammable kitten, then it may be safe to read this book. I'm pretty sure it's worth it.

    The Hitchhicker's Guide to the Galaxy, the first volume in the five-part Hitchhiker "trilogy" made Douglas Adams a science fiction sensation, and is a must-listen for any and all fans of the genre. Don't forget to bring a towel!

    Victor says: "still a winner!!!"
    "A great contrast to english class homework."
    Overall

    The late, great, Doaglas Adams has created here a wonderful farce of just about everything from conventional assumptions of Sci-fi, to alleged alien sightings, and the dysfunctional workings of modern civilization. This series is a great way to refresh your mind in between being coerced into reading the rot that english teachers celebrate as "Literature". Tolstoy, Shakespeare and Hemingway are tolerable, but the gratuitously nauseating, dismally depressing, and offensive works like "Beloved" and "Typical American", horrifyingly bland works like "The Great Gatsby", and pretty much anything written by Nathaniel Hawthorne can get to a guy after a while.
    I seen to have digressed into a rant against my curriculum, but I hope I have made it clear that this five book trilogy is just what the doctor ordered for someone who hasn't laughed enough recently.

  • Dude, Where's My Country?

    He is the scourge of Stupid White Men everywhere. He's taken on fat cats, gun nuts, lying politicians. The Guardian describes him as "a wake-up call, a kick in the mental backside." And now, Michael Moore is back, daring to ask the most urgent question of these perilous times: Dude, Where's My Country?

    Carl says: "I am politically to the left - this is just bad"
    "Once again, Moore trolls the tabloids."
    Overall

    This book declares itself to be privy to "inside" and "hushed-up" information in much the same way that the National enquirer is privy to the testimony of some poor drunken sod wandering the streets of Detroit proclaiming to all the world that he has been sent to earth by god for the sole purpose of stirring up rebellion amongst the downtrodden dustbins that have been so cruelly oppressed by human society.
    Political satire has its place, and all points of view are fair game. But continuing and expanding malicious rumours is inexcusable even in artistic license.
