      It's a S&W Model 28-2 "Highway Patrolman".. Quit PM'ing me!

        Dear god did that series go downhill in the end. the 1st book was great and the 2nd was ok, but after about the 4th or 5th book it got really really bad.



        I'm ready for the next in the series to come out. Still love the characters but there are so many different threads developing that it takes time to set them all up and make them work.

              Duly noted, good sir. (I hope to get back to finishing Book 4 this week)

              You sound like you're in a similar boat I'm in. I started reading the series when it was first published, I think I'm on book 6 or 7, can't remember...

              But Lan, definitely. And Perrin.

              Menion Leah
              Bilbo and Gandalf
              Batman (not entirely literary, I know)
              D'Artagnan
              Harry Keogh
              Jack Crow
              Remo Williams & Chiun
              Mara Jade

              I love Sherlock Holmes and Charlie Chan, but I love the cinematic versions moreso than the literary.

              I fly my geek flag high!
              I've had one deal, it was with Magh8 and he's good people.

              I'm not nOOb, I just suck...There's a difference.

                I'm not sure if it went down or just got too spread out and expansive. My friend who has, in the past, read and reread each book as a new volume comes out just to stay on top of it told me it gets really hard to follow as each new book comes out.


                Oh! And Sirius Black and the Weasley Twins from Harry Potter. I like the main cast of characters but those are my favs.

                  One should probably do what had to be done with old-school computer RPGs from the 80's: Map out everything as you go

                    Now that Robert Jordan is dead, i wonder how the new book/s will be.

                    My main problem with the series is it was very drawn out and having something like 6 or 7 main stories stacked on top of each other made for extremely dense and at times boring reading.

                        I haven't seen much love for Lovecraft in here.

                        Honestly, with a group of metal heads, I could have sworn I would see more of his work mentioned in here.

                                Yeah, but all of this characters either die, go insane, or are giant world-eating monstrosities that gibber in the dark! Loves me some Lovecraft, though.
