    If anyone saw the movie "Sphere", the book was a lot better imo.

    Stephen King's Dark Tower series is good, but I haven't finished it yet (so don't blame me if the finale is terrible lol).

    I mentioned the Harry Potter books in the movie thread, and I think they deserve another mention. May be considered the modern day LOTR?

    I started writing a book once :geek: Kinda scary thriller. I swear, it sounds better than what you'd expect from me :lol: It's just not finished :hmm:

    I've written a book before, but didnt like it so never did anythin with it. I kinda lost interest towards the end so I just wrote at that stage and it probably didnt make sense compared with the beginning. Probably had a character name change. LOL.

    I've had ideas for many others and I am trying a new one now just for fun.


    I also finished Burning for Revenge, not a bad book. Consistent with the others in the series, but I am taking a break from the series now to read some others.

    Quality book but overhyped. Still, after you get past the first 30 pages, it gets really good.

    I thought it was good, although I wasnt a fan of the ending.

    It is over-hyped because there has been a big stink about it from the Churches about how religion is portayed in it.

    I've never read his Op Center books. His Jack Ryan series was always great. Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, Red Storm Rising, Clear and Present Danger, Red Rabbit, Sum of All Fears, Debt of Honor, Executive Orders, The Bear and the Dragon. Those are just off the top of my head, but I'm sure there are a few I'm leaving out.

    pfft it was about 2 years ago when i finished it. Can't remember much of it.

    I remember it was a fantasy book, and it was about a guy who was found on a beach suffering amnesia and later on it turns out he is the son of the evil guy. Sounds gay but that is all I remember from it. I have it written down somewhere.

    Right now I am working on a Sci-fi/Star Wars space type idea.

    The Dark Tower series was good, I starting reading the last one recently, but had to stop and take a break cause it was getting confusing!
