I have just recently gotten into reading fantasy and I'm surprised how many people I know also read fantasy/science fiction (albeit, mostly in private so I never knew)! So, I thought I'd see if anyone at the FORT does as well.
I'd like to know which series would be worth a look. I've heard that some can get..um...graphic. I'm not interested in those.
So far, I've read:
His Dark Materials Trilogy by Phillip Pullman (Pretty good, conversation a bit stilted)
The Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb (Really liked this one, good plot but slow in places because of over description)
Mists of Avalon by Zimmerman (Ah, I hated this book! I don't know why everyone liked it so much)
First few books of Anne Rice vampire series...I can't keep going after Tale of the Body Thief. I liked the first two, especially the Vampire Lestat, but now I'm bored.
I just started a series about King Arthur by Courtway Jones. The first book was called In the Shadow of the Oak King. Really fast pace and Jones is an actual historian so it had some interesting factoids.
