Orson Scott Card - Enders Game (series):

 

The great thing about that book is, it was written in the 70's and yet many of the technologies were envisioned. String theory, Tablets (called a "Desk" in the books) and more. Plus, the dialog and storyline is so well written, you'll see why they didn't need to deviate much from it when translating to the movie.

WOW CruelKind- nice taste in books :)

 

I simply love Ender's game. Prolly read it 8 times. I recently also read Enders Shadow- it's about Bean's life and his point of view about what happened in Ender's Game. Really enjoyed it.

Only read two other books from Ender's series. I had a harder time getting through them.  I was really pulled in by the drama and the battle school setting from Ender's Game and the sequals are vastly different.

 

Robert Jordan Wheel of Time--- oh yes!!! I have read all of them up until the book where the author passed away. Started the next one- the story is still good but the writing style is COMPLETELY different. I am glad the writer didnt try to mimick Jordan but it is a large switch to the tone of the story. Need to pick it back up...have to know what happens!

 

Read a few Xanth novels. Good entertainment for silly wit and quirky humor. Very different style, not my favorite go to, but good for a change

Thanks, you would really appreciate the Sword of Truth by Terry Goodkind, if you like WOT. Damn shame he died & I agree about the writing style. Fallen Dragon is a really different story too, and good writing though a few wonky sections near the beginning regarding super-science technology, otherwise a very entertaining story.
