Posted by Mathias

Today I got my monthly “recommendations” from audible.com in terms of sci-fi and fantasy books. I thought I would present them to everyone else.

NOTE: On a personal basis I disagree with two of these suggestions. First is The Farseer: Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb. This book is so slow that I still haven’t been able to complete it. Second is The Scar By Sergey & Marina Dyachenko. To read my take on it, click here. (more…)

Best Fantasy/Fiction/Sci-Fi Books I Ever Read (Top 10)

Posted by Mathias

Ok, some of people have been asking me what the best fantasy/fiction books are that I ever read. So I compiled my top ten to give you an idea about what it takes to get over four stars in my opinion.

1) Dracula by Bram Stoker

    (5/5)

2) The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by CS Lewis

    (5/5)

3) Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There by Lewis Carroll

(5/5)

4) Dark Elf Trilogy by RA Salvatore

(4.75/5)

5) A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

(4.75/5)

6) Animal Farm by George Orwell

(4.75/5)

7) The Once And Future King by TH White

(4.75/5)

8 ) Magic Kingdom for Sale – SOLD by Terry Brooks

(4.75/5)

9) Dragons of Autumn Twilight by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman

(4.75/5)

10) Peter Pan and Wendy by JM Barre

(4.75/5)

That’s my top ten. Agree or disagree, I don’t care much. It is my list and no one else’s.

NOTE: On 8/26 I updated the title of this post to include “Sci-Fi” in the title.  Even though there are no science fiction books on this list (my top 10), I am working on expanding it further and there are some sci-fi books that are on the extended list.

This list contines in the following posts:
