Summer reading suggestions

Rumour has it that this time of year people have vacations and read books. Or used to anyway, now you can read on almost anything it seems.

Back to the point. If someone have any good suggestions for what to read, lets hear it.


My first suggestsion is the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher
http://www.amazon.com/Jim-Butcher/e/B00 ... sr=1-2-ent

It is a series of pulpy/noire detective novels, where Harry Dresden gets punched a lot (like PI's usually do) and solves mysteries in Chicago. Oh, by the way, he is also a wizard and many of his clients have problems of the supernatural kind or are supernatural beings. Somehow Butcher manages to keep the flavour, and easy language, of a pulp novel as well as incorporating things like werewolfs and naughty pixies and making it sound perfectly natural. They are also very funny, so I can highly recommend them as summer entertainment.

Re: Summer reading suggestions

Thanks for the suggestion Dusty. I'm pretty sure my brother-in-law has that series, maybe I'll have to see if I can borrow it.

I've had time to get some reading done as I commute to work. I've almost finished a paperback novel authored by Howard Wasdin(a former SEAL) titled "SEAL TEAM SIX: OUTCASTS".

The premise is that 3 SEALs & a Navy intel analyst are put together as a team with tier 1 status & given ops to carry out that are ultra black. The catch: they are considered expendable & have no possibility of back-up or rescue. All 4 of them should've been drummed out of the service.

I've really enjoyed how Mr. Wasdin lends his personal experiences & technical knowledge to the story.

It is always interesting to read things written by people who knows what they are talking about.

Re: Summer reading suggestions

Was the TV series based on that?


I've been reading the Game of Thrones series...I"m on book 5... very good.

I"ve also been reading "The Mask of Troy" by David Gibbins... excellent book... there are I think 5 in the series now. The main character is a diver/archaeologist. He always uncovers something from ancient history that always seems to have some sinister plot behind it. Very similar to the books Clive Cussler writes about NUMA.

Re: Summer reading suggestions

There's supposed to be a new book in the Game of Thrones collection soon. Make that books 6 & 7 are in the process of being finalized. The author is under the gun to get them done before the HBO series catches up with him.

Re: Summer reading suggestions

I gave up on looking forward to Martin's newest book because it makes me mad to wait! haha

I just finished reading The Rook and while it had some problems, the world and concept were interesting and light. It was like Harry potter meets Jason Bourne meets Ghostbusters. Perfect summer reading! :)

I just picked up a Dresden Files book from the library on a whim, haven't started it yet, so we'll see.

Anyone who loves fantasy, I can't recommend highly enough Raymond Feist's Riftwar Saga and Steven Erikson's Malazan series. High fantasy, magic, and lots of political intrigue and detailed battle scenes. Hard to believe I know, but detailed battle scenes and political intrigue make a fantasy series for me.

Re: Summer reading suggestions

Yes, the short lived TV series Dresden Files was based on the book(s). Unfortunately the series didn't gain much traction & kind of sputtered out.

Re: Summer reading suggestions

Got done with the book I mentioned previously & picked-up "Horse Soldiers" again to see about finishing it. This tells the tale of how a small group of Army Special Forces soldiers rode into battle on horseback in Afghanistan shortly after 911 to assist the Afghans in defeating the Taliban. An interesting & informative read if you're into military non-fiction.

I also picked-up my copy of "Star Wars: Abyss" a Fate of the Jedi paperback to see about getting that finished.

So yes, I am reading 2 books the same time. This a good thing for me(I'm not he best reader).
