Re: What is your favorite fantasy book?

I'm big on fantasy reading, but my personal favorite series, no matter what critics say, will always be Brian Jacques' Redwall.
Of course this is closely followed by the Inheritance Cycle (Eragon) and His Dark Materials (Golden Compass).

Sometimes, you just have to start over.

Re: What is your favorite fantasy book?

Well, The Two Towers is and has always been my fave. Tolkien aside, I've become quite the R.A.Salvatore fan over the last two years. I'd have to say it's a toss-up between The Chaos Curse and The Halfling's Gem.

Hold on...now that I think about it, it's The Halfling's Gem, no contest. I can't count the number of action sequences in that book that just felt cinematic. A Legend of Drizzt movie series would be awesome!

WORST. PALADIN. EVER.

Re: What is your favorite fantasy book?

What? There are actually OTHER fantasy writers besides the great John Ronald Reuel Tolkien?

Re: What is your favorite fantasy book?

I'm not much of a reader but the Chronicles of Narnia were always a favorite of mine.

Re: What is your favorite fantasy book?

I am a fan of C.S. Lewis. Chronicles of Narnia of Course, but also Space trilogy especially That Hideous Strength which was a combo Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror/Philosophical masterpiece. They were written at the same time Tolkien wrote the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and both writers exchanged notes so there was similarities. Also, Till We Have Faces was good especially if you like Greek Mythology. His other "Fantasy" books are very allegorical about Christianity but even atheists can enjoy them. The Great Divorce is haled by many as the best "Christian" fantasy book but also one of the best fantasy books period, albeit its subject is life after death (It is actually about the Grim Reaper's Friends )

Re: What is your favorite fantasy book?

While the author tries to say its not fantasy, the Sword of Truth series is great, although it can get a bit graphic. Also, there are sections that get wordy but overall, a great series. The first book is called Wizard's First Rule.

I don't care much for fantasy outside of that.
