    Read The Unconsoled as well. Not as good, but also great. Fantastic author.

    The Wise Man's Fear - it's moved up to being probably my favourite book series ever. Rothfuss has such a magnificent way with words. It's just full of little things to take away, and the wider narrative is genuinely absorbing. I have so many theories about what is going on. Unreliable narrators are fantastic.
    Come on lad, you criticised Code Geass for being too adolescent and then post this. Jesus christ.
    OverratedSanity and harsh.ag like this.

    Yeah I'll definitely read more of his stuff at some point.

    Now reading Pachinko and Little Fires Everywhere. Things Fall Apart is on the list too. Loading up the list for a beach holiday at the start of September.

    1-4 does, 5, 6, 7 has its moments but isn’t as good IMO.

    FMD though, 4 is so ****ing good.

    Yeah don't see why not tbh. First one is a bit unmemorable but after that it gets pretty bonkers and compelling.

    If you like the idea of a western/horror/fantasy mashup then go for it.

    Like Athlai says the 4th is particularly great.

    The first one has an ATG opening line. And then another bad ass line right near the end. But is fairly short overall. Could probably do it in one sitting.
