    Just imagine, all of this is in your mind, you walk around the place with kafkaesque thoughts. Cliches and archetypes jostle for space. Reality is coated with a patina of imagination. I find it hard enough to walk and chew gum, never mind carry your load of metaphor and tropes and walk a straight line.

    My top five, as in books I'd take with me if I could only choose five series with which to be stranded with on a desert island:
    LOTR
    Chronicles of Narnia
    Outlander/Lord John Grey series
    Kushiel's Legacy first two trilogies, though I wouldn't throw the third trilogy in the fire unless I was desparate for kindling.
    Farseer/Tawny Man trilogies
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers
