Quick, I have my finger on the "proceed to checkout" button
at Amazon (UK)! I got a gift certificate for Christmas, and I'm getting a pile of books (list inside)... Anything else you think I can't live without? →
Drawing recommendations from gaspode's last "what are you reading" post, plus an earlier post by me asking for big (fat) books:
- We Need to Talk About Kevin
- Little, Big
- The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay
- The Endymion Omnibus: "Endymion", "The Rise of Endymion"
- The Hyperion Omnibus: "Hyperion", "The Fall of Hyperion"
- The Gormenghast Trilogy
- The Discovery of Heaven
- The Earthsea Quartet
I'd also kind of like something along the lines of "His Dark Materials"... Does anyone know about "The Dark is Rising Sequence
" by Susan Cooper? The reviews sound like it may fit the bill...
Also, I haven't read any Michael Moorcock, so thinking about getting The History of Runestaff
OR The Dancers at the End of Time
OR The Cornelius Quartet
. Which should I choose?
Anything else you'd like to recommend? (or "disrecommend"? Mistakes on my list?)
