The trilogy as a whole. It's on a documentary on the extended DVD movies.

When the darkness of the Abyss threatens the world, the Phoenix will rise amidst a whirlwind of fire and light.

That is a very impressive record. Are you sure it isn't another religious book like the Torah or the Quran?

I'm just quoting. And I'm sure that's what it said.

I've started reading my Feist books again...

Is it just me, or does anyone else go through reading phases?

I mean, I'm reading books now, but in about a month, i'll stop reading until around October.....

I do. Prime reading season is when school is out. Sucks for me because we have this "Home Reading Log" to fill out about your week's reading. I kinda squeeze my way through! :D

It's good, but not as good as the first one.

I won't spoil it for you.

Nope, what genre does he write?

All sorts from what I gather.
"Dark Moon" is a Fantasy, and others he's written are Non-fiction....

I actually started Twilight, and it's not that bad. On page 85 at the moment, and it's pretty fun.

I will not be reading Brisinger, and I haven't read Eldest either. The "blue brick" (Eragon) was really not that good. Well, I mean, waaaay too cliche! It's like a copy of LOTR!

And have you ever heard of a vegetarian wearing leather??? :O

And C.P. uses the Thesaurus, he even said so in a interview. This, my friend, is NOT a good thing to do when writing a book! One interview said that it took him to get to page 18 of the "red brick"(Eldest), without reading the first book, to realize that the dragon was actually a dragon and not some human oddity. This is bad. :-\

So if the "blue brick" and the "red brick" were bad, then what's to say the "**** brick"(It's brown, lol) won't be either? I'll watch the movies though, when they come out. :)

Well, I made a bargain with my friend. If I read Twilight, she'll play FFX. Done deal. :D

Also, apart from Twilight, I'm gonna read The Legend of Drizzt Book I, Homeland. Then I may reread Inkheart or Inkspell again... again. xD


SwordStealer is my twin from across the country! ;D

No. I has read said **** brick. And I partly agree, it's very cliche and predictable. I wonder who dies? Hm...*FFV memories* Oh, I know! :( On the other hand, it kept me busy and it was good otherwise. :)
