Hoo boy. Here we go.
Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time is legit. I kinda fell outta the books about number 6, now I'm starting back from the prequels.
Also, do yourselves a favor. Read Terry Goodkind's "Sword of Truth" series. Now. Not the bull crap "legend of the Seeker" tv show, but the actual novels. The show is crap. In the books, the interpersonal interactions, the flow of the dialogue, and many other things seem so much more natural than any other fantasy I've read. Including Wheel of Time. You really loose hours reading it. I burned the first 5 novels in a week when I started. That was before gainful employment though. I even have a hardback copy of Chainfire autographed by Mr. Goodkind himself. I would recommend this series to ANY and everybody.
Getting into the Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. It's the first of the "Song of Fire and Ice" series. REALLY good books. On par with Jordan and Goodkind.
The Drizzt Do'Urden novels are worth the read. Glen Cook's "Black Company" are as well.
For less fantastical series, Steven Hunter makes some writes incredible action. Like reading an action movie. I am especially fond of the Bob Lee Swagger Novels, specifically the first few (Point of Impact and Time to Hunt are my absolute favorites).
Jeff Cooper. The man was a former combat Marine, a firearms instructor, a worldly hunter, a gifted writer, a wise soul, and an incredible man. Books like "Fireworks", "Another Country", and "To Ride, Shoot Straight, and Speak the Truth" make for excellent company when you are alone. I mourn that I never had the opportunity to meet the man.
Why are you still reading this crap. GOODKIND! NOW!
