Have you read any of the more recent Forgotten Realm's books by Salvatore? I hear mixed reviews.


I haven't. What are people saying about them?


A customer came into my second job carrying a copy of "The Orc King". (I think that's what the title was) He was telling me that it is just as good as any Salvatore book. Although an acquaintance I happened to run into while at a local Barnes & Noble said the newer ones were kind of meh. I have always been a fan of Salvatore's writing. I was especially impressed with his work on "Vector Prime". (That is a Star Wars novel that begins a new story arc way way after Return of the Jedi) I would consider reading the newer Salvatore books nevertheless. Nobody writes an action sequence quite the same.

How did you like World War Z? I really liked the global perspective and the presentation (in print form anyway).

I found it quite enjoyable. The documentary format and the full cast (it has Mark Hamill and Alan Alda in it, yes Luke Skywalker and Hawkeye) made it stand out to me.

Interesting. I find Salvatore's books are just simply fun to read.

Just to be precise as possible: The only book I read from that particular Star Wars series was Vector Prime. I know other authors took it up after Salvatore, but I am not certain how many he wrote for it.

If anybody else checking out these posts knows better, please, feel free to chime in.

Cant remember if it was "World War Z" for the third time or if it was "Emergency: This Book Could Save Your Life" for me.

Oliver Twist, limited selection in a room full of 2nd graders.


I take it you were reading it to them. I am not so certain I could get up in front of a group of children and do that. In some of the classes I have taken recently presentations have been neccesary, and I just hammer it out without thinking about the group in front of me. I know it can be difficult to keep the attention of children (former roommates had two children). I am getting off-topic though. Very sorry.


no no alls fine. no it was silent reading time while they read i had nothing better to do than read also and since i neglected to bring something from home to read(like i have any interesting reading books in my house besides alice in wonderland) i decided on Oliver Twist since ive never actually read that book. plus the room had no windows and only one door so why not

The last book I read was Don Quixote. I've read it over 20 times now, and I'm still not sick of it. I'm currently reading Sophie's World, by Jostein Gaarder.
