In this case I had to vote 'Foundation' as it's the only series of books on the list which i really liked.

But I really miss the Wheel of Time books by Robert Jordan on the list. My favourite and imho better than LotR.

    For the reccord (not that anyone cares) The wheel of time is a terrible series and an offense readers everywhere. After writing something like 9 books each of which is over 900 pages, you'd think you'd manage to find a conclusion in there someplace. So lest I be accused of going on too long with out my own conclusion, let me say this: I hate hate hate hate!

    :)
      the series is getting rather long indeed, i finished the 10th book a while ago and waiting for the next.

      can you imagine i read volumes 1 to 7 about 3 times? *grin*
        Yeah, but mostly because my mother has done the same thing.. She rereads the entire series every time he finally finishes a new book.
        Speaking of a series too long, have you tried L Ron Hubbard's Mission Earth series? I bought all of them as a package deal at a yard sale (10 volumes if I remember)... I only made it to the third one before I gave up on it entirely. That man could be long winded for sure! :)

        Battlefield Earth was a good read. But hack off the last 200 pages or so and it's much better :)

        Whip me, Beat me, Make me use Y-ModemG.
