    Is it written in novel form?

    Spot on. Was easy to read because it never was a chore to read.

    In fact I was left craving more when i was done. I wanted to know more about the setting (super minor spoilers): The races across the western sea, the abandoned dragon workshops, the drowned, did tralgu have fur (they smelt like wet dog in the rain after all) on their body?
    You won't regret it, no dull moments.

    Just started Deadhouse Gates (Malazan Book II). I slogged through Gardens of the Moon earlier in the year, I needed a break from the chaotic PoV structure and Deus Ex Machina. This time was spent on TDatC which was a wise decision.

    Gardens of the Moon
    was reaching Dragonball Z levels of powercreep tbh. I don't regret starting the series however, just isn't one I'll marathon through.

    Deadhouse Gates is a much better book than the first one IMO and definitely worth the read.
  6. MASTERS S Masters

    No, not written in novel form, yes it has pictures

    World War II - Behind Closed Doors, by Laurence Rees was a good read on the subject.

    Nearly finished Niall Fergusons 'the great degeneration', pretty good, but you can get the grasp/whole thing from watching one or two of his lectures on youtube. Also knocked off Thomas Sowells 'The housing boom and bust' as an audiobook, pretty good, just reinforced a lot of stuff from Tom Woods meltdown.

    "American raceologists, policy makers, their European counterparts, and even Hitler himself cited this work as anthropological evidence of Nordic superiority.

    It is interesting to read an account of racial history based on ancient race origins rather than on nations and cultures. The method of determining the separate white European races are based on skull shape, skin and hair color."

    Was quite a good read. You should give it a read MF. lol

    Yeah, thus far it's been good.

    At times it gets exhausting however trying to keep track of characters, places and motivations.

    The end is worth the effort IMO.

    I'm currently reading Midnight Tides. This one seems a bit easier to follow compared to his previous books, or perhaps I'm used to his style now.

    I've now read over 150 pages and literally nothing has happened. I'm not reading any more.

    Done with Midnight Tides. I think it's probably my favourite in the Malazan series so far. I felt nothing would top Memories of Ice, but I really enjoyed this one and liked the characters a lot more.

    Im about 1/2 way through MoI. It's good, but I think I enjoyed DHG more.
  16. jazman84 JM Eightyfour

    Persist. It's worth it.
  17. AVA T Delonge

    Tehol is an amazing character. Loved every scene he was in.
  18. Sultan Pepper HG Emm

    The Modern History of Turkey
  19. Toolman TR Man

    When does stuff start happening?
  20. Pretzel P Retzel

    How's it going? Wouldn't mind doing some reading on this.

    Thinking about picking up Marcus Aurelius's Meditations.
