    Well, he certainly could not do anything but that.

    I have read that and am now reading Leaven of Malice. I have to admit I find his writing a bit dull. Somewhat didactic. I guess I'd need a good teacher to analyze his work for me and explain the depth I have missed.

    (The whole series, but Order of the Phoenix is my favorite one)
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    My favourite book. I re-read it about once a year.



    This was also pretty badass, way better than the movie.

    If you like McCaffrey and MZB, I bet you'd like Mercedes Lackey, who has a similar writing style and subject. She's probably my favourite author, for "fluff" reading (which is most of what I read ). If you haven't read her before, I'd probably start with mostly any book in the heralds of valdemar series - Foundation is a recently published one that I liked. A few of her many, many series aren't that great though (imo) but the rest are wonderful.

    Ender's game is possibly my favourite book ever, and I have many many favourites.

    Most of the rest I would have suggested you already have on your list so...

    I like books I don't quite understand like From Cliche to Archetype by Marshall McLuhan.

    And also on a site devoted to types and informed by cliche, I might be able to understand what we are doing here.
