    Odyssey One... best sci-fi series I've read yet outside of Red Rising trilogy. Currently on book 4 of Old Man's War, good candy.

    Goes back into hibernation.

    yo Dirtbag, if you like Fantasy you need to read the Riftwar sage, I think it finished with about 14 or 15 books. Great series. Also my favorite ie easily the original Dragonlance trilogy.

    Thanks for bringing this thread back to life! Yesterday I finished the Red Rising trilogy from Pierce Brown. Very good series, though quite violent. I haven't seen any of the Hunger Games films or read the books, but I've heard that it's a similar theme... just that it takes place far into the future and is spread out throughout our solar system. Apparently there is a fourth book coming out in a few months... loooking forward to reading that.

    Until then I've got a few new books laying on the nightstand ready to start:

    - The Sun Also Rises by Hemmingway
    - Beacon by Hugh Howey
    - Neverwhere by Neil Gaimon

    I see the similarity to The Hunger Games, but while I have only seen those movies, I think there's difference enough to enjoy both separately. I'll be interested in getting the new one when it comes out. I don't remember the violence being stomach turning. The most graphic books I've ever read besides some of the Liz Salander books are the Dune prequels dealing with The Butlerian Jihad and the Titans. Detailed evisceration, horrid torture, graphic pain - some parts of these books make you feel dirty inside. They're awesome!
