Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.

Explain your opinion in great detail. Show a picture of the book cover.

I know I mentioned this before but I can't visualize when I read book. But this time I want to read a book even though it is hard for me to visualize when I read. Can you recommend me some fantasy and/or sci-fi novels?

American Gods is a modern Odyssey through the US about gods old and new who eke out a living in the modern world. If you have read Gaiman's The Sandman graphic novels then you know what to expect. And if you haven't read those you should drop everything and do that first!



The Diamond Age is set in a far future where humanity has broken down into tribal units and nearly infinite material wealth made possible by nanotechnology is available to those positioned in the most powerful ones. The main characters live in a floating world meant to approximate Victorian england where an engineer is hired to create a "Primer" to educate his wealthy benefactor's young daughter in the ways of society. The setting is unique and glistening, the humor is razor sharp and the nearly prescient ideas surrounding mass education are really pretty scary. The only caveat to recommendation is that the ending is pretty weak. That said, it's so unique that it almost doesn't matter.



The first in a trilogy of bizarre steampunk fantasy set in New Crobuzon--a gritty, dystopian city filled with all sorts of races, monsters and political machinations in play. The main character, an alchemist, is approached by a mythical beast who commissions him for divine work. TL;DR all hell breaks loose in a lush and original fantasy city that has a life of its own.

What do you mean when you say you cannot visualize?

I can't see what is going on in the story because my mind is cluttered with nonsense. I can only see the words but I can not see the story that those words showing.
