When I was a kid I used to love reading Ray Bradbury short stories.

All Summer In A Day is still one of the saddest, most heartbreaking, and most haunting stories I've ever read.

I'm reading Uncle Tom's Cabin for a class. Trying, anyway. Dear God, could it be any worse? If you just want to make points about a social issue and you're not a novelist, DON'T WRITE A FUCKING NOVEL! JUST WRITE A NONFICTION BOOK! I'm not bothered by the message one bit; I'm bothered by the evils being done to the English language on every page. I don't honestly know if I can read this book all the way through. 400+ pages and I've hated all 50 I've read so far.

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.

Not sure how I feel about it.. it tends to drag sometimes. Though I'm only about half way through, so I shouldn't judge it too much.

It's so far from typical fantasy. A Song of Ice and Fire is set in a very medieval-like world, where things like magic and dragons are long extinct and nearly forgotten, seasons last for years instead of months, and everything is full of corruption. There isn't really good or bad characters, just lots of shades of gray. Theres tons of sex, f-bombs, and brutal violence. It's kind of like "The Sopranos" in medieval setting. In fact, HBO is turning the books into a series, which could possibly be the greatest television event since The Wire.

The characters are so well written it's insane. Probably the greatest characterization I've read in any fantasy or sci-fi book, let alone any book. Believe me, this is FAR from any "fantasy" I've ever read, if you can even all it that. You're missing out on a fantastic story If you haven't read them.
