"Another excellent story from Morgan. At first I was disappointed that it wasn't set in the same universe as "Altered Carbon", but once I got into it, all such thoughts fled as I was pulled into this entirely new tale."

The Belgariad, Vol. 1 (Books 1-3): Pawn of Prophecy, Queen of Sorcery, Magician's Gambit
"The Belgariad and Malloreon are true epic fantasy. It's what The Wheel of Time and Sword of Truth should have been, instead of bloated messes.  Eddings had a story to tell, and it took him this long to tell it, without stretching to get yet another title out of the it. This is classic Fantasy well done. The story and characters keep you engaged and it has a satisfying ending. What more is there?"

"A techno-thriller for the MMO generation from someone obviously steeped in the world of Massively Multiplayer Online Games. Suarez does a decent job explaining the tech for the uninitiated, but I don’t know how understandable it would be to my father, who has never seen a computer game more complex than Hearts. Still, a thrilling tale that held me to the end and left me hungry for the sequel."

"An amazing, sweeping epic by Stephenson. Part sci-fi, part sociological thought-experiment. Quite long, but I never got bored. It kept me reading many a long night."
