I'm taking part in the Indie Fantasy Addicts summer challenge, so... lots of indie fantasy writers. ;D Currently on two fairytale retellings by Laura Greenwood: Betrayed (Rumpelstiltskin) and Frost's Forfeit (Snow Queen spinoff).

Mika Waltari - The Egyptian

Just found out that the local public broadcasting company offers this novel as an audio book or radio play free of charge. I believe I've read it twice or thrice and still one of the best fiction I've ever read. Highly recommended for anyone even slightly interested in historical novels.

Waltari and Mary Renault were huge in Greece around 1990. I have all their novels on my Kindle queue, though I haven't got around to read them yet.

How did you get your hands on those? Did Amazon have some kind of bundle of Waltari's novels?

The Mary Renault series was originally in text form - I think from Project Gutenberg Australia, where copyright laws are a bit different, although they did end up pulled. The Waltari ones, except for The Wanderer, I can't remember - it's been years, and when I first got a Kindle, I was watching the offers a lot more closely than I do now.

I don't mean farce as a pejorative, but rather that most of the characters and situations (especially the women) are exaggerated and comical. I think The Idiot reads like a soap opera at times, but whereas The Idiot is more like a drama, The Brothers K version of soap opera is more comedic

In that regard, probably not different from other literature of the time. My biggest problem with Dostoevsky's novels is that you have to plow through thirty pages of story to get to the profound philosophical gems. I thought the Brothers Karamazov was worth the struggle. But I haven't been able to make it through another Dostoevsky novel.

 :laugh: That's a bit amusing criticism for non-fiction.

I couldn't get through the The Brothers Karamazov mostly because the sheer amount of diminutives for all the characters. How am I supposed to know who's being who when every name is spelled differently in every page.

Alan Moore, Dave Gibbons - Watchmen

I've been meaning to get into comics for some years but never really bothered to do anything for it until a friend practically forced me to check this one. We were on a vacation in Milan on July and tried to find it from local comic stores and got weird looks every time we asked if there was anything in English. As per my stereotype apparently around there nobody reads anything in English. Gotta love Italians. Thankfully found it from a library after coming back to Finland.

The Unseen Realm by Micheal Heiser. I have not really started reading it yet (i.e. I'm two pages in). It seems like it will be interesting.

That's the most engaging fantasy-with-a-side-of-sci-fi worldbuilding I've seen in a long while.

Dr. Heiser is one of the reasons I'm moving to EOC. Partly his writings in that book on being an imager of God is quite moving. Hope you enjoy it.

I've read 3 books by Harris now, and none of them are "gripping," this one least of all. I mean, I mostly like his work, and it's kind of fun seeing Cicero trying to outwit Caesar and others, but the scheming and politics in this series just doesn't rise to the level of, say, Game of Thrones, and I can't foresee moving on to the final book in the trilogy.

Just to add: I was surprised by the fat shaming and ethnic slur in a text that, even if not marketed directly to kids, you'd presumably still think would be at least kid-friendly.

I recently finished On the Mother of God by Saint Jacob of Serug.  I wish I had anything intelligent to say about it.  But I don’t.  :)  It was lovely and brought the accounts in Scripture to life, but like my first read-through of Beginning to Pray, it was sometimes “too much.”  I assume that’s some limitation on my part.
