Books for Sam to Read

A Listmania! list by M. Maxwell (Los Angeles, CA)
The list author says: "The interweb makes this list fancy."
His Dark Materials Trilogy: Northern Lights, Subtle Knife, Amber Spyglass
1.  His Dark Materials Trilogy: Northern Lights, Subtle Knife, Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman
The list author says:
  "I can't tell which edition this is, but don't get the one that's all in one book. It's too heavy and the paper quality is awful.

Anyway, often discussed as a children's book because the main character is a child, but it's no joke. Totally amazing. Some of my faves."

The Silmarillion
2.  The Silmarillion by J. R. R. Tolkien
The list author says:
  "So good. So effing good. (but only if you <3 Tolkien *and* mythology)"
$26.49   Used & New from: $17.08

Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell
3.  Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke
The list author says:
  "This one was a big deal maybe 5 years ago, or so, when it came out. It's sort of an alternate 19th century (I think) Europe where the the esoteric science of magic has become mostly theorectical."

Shadow & Claw: The First Half of 'The Book of the New Sun'
4.  Shadow & Claw: The First Half of 'The Book of the New Sun' by Gene Wolfe
The list author says:
  "Borrowed this from a friend at his suggestion and was really impressed. Really well written, I think. The second volume (_Sword and Citadel_) isn't quite as good, but you can't exactly stop halfway through."
$11.95   Used & New from: $2.64

Sword & Citadel: The Second Half of 'The Book of the New Sun'

A Song of Ice and Fire, (4 Vols.): A Game of Thrones / A Clash of Kings / A Storm of Swords / A Feast for Crows
6.  A Song of Ice and Fire, (4 Vols.): A Game of Thrones / A Clash of Kings / A Storm of Swords / A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin
The list author says:
  "This is what I'm reading now. I'm on Feast for Crows. I picked it up because of an extremely hilarious wall calendar that I'll tell you about sometime. Turns out it's the story that the new HBO series is based on.

It's pretty brutal, but good. The reviews pretty much say it all."
Used & New from: $10.99
