    Favorite Genre?

    What's your favorite genre?

    Mine is fantasy. I love it! I've just finished book 10 of the Wheel of Time. I started reading them because I finished all the books in the Sword of Truth series and was awaiting the new one to be published. So I just finished WOT just in time for the new SOT :D

    :D The Wheel of Time is my favorite book series. I got to the 4th book (The Shadow Rising) and quit for about a year, and forgot everything so I'm going back and starting over. Currently on page 400-something of Eye of the World. But I love Sci.Fi/Fantasy or just straight Fantasy :) Is the Sword of Truth series any good?

    A lot of people say the WOT gets boring in a lot of places, and drawn out. Which I can agree with. But the culture and history the author builds up in the books is amazing to me, it's like an entire world that just unravels itself page after page.

    Though book 10 was somewhat of a disappointment. Next to nothing actually happened in it. As one reviewer on Amazon said along the lines of, "10 minutes of Aes Sedai smoothing their skirts".

    I like the SOT a lot, too. It's an easier read IMO. The beginning of the first one, I was thinking, "Seems okay...", but by the 5th chapter I was drawn right in.

    When it comes to tv/movies I love sci-fi. Star Wars, Star Trek, SG1, etc...
    But when it comes to books, fantasy is my favorite genre. Some of my favorite authors are: Terry Brooks, R.A. Salvatore, David Eddings and of course I can't forget J.R.R. Tolkien. There are so many great authors and books out there, too many to name them all.

    Fantasy is a great genre, I really like it. However, sci-fi has always interested me and keeps me pulled back into reading.

    I read from almost all genres but my favorite is probably history.
