On topic: Any of the first three Robin Hobb series. Farseer Trilogy, Liveship Traders, Tawny Man. She does fantastic characterisation. There are others after those, but that's as far as I've read.

If you don't mind some humor in your sword and sorcery books you can pick up Terry Pratchett's discworld series. I would suggest reading them in order as there's like 30 books so far, and they all build on one another for the most part. Excellent stuff though. I can't think of a single one of those books I didn't enjoy.

/waves hand..these are not the blues you are looking for. In all seriousness, here's all the answers you seek.

1.0.4 will be out soon. Soon is by blizz standards, and not yours. Chances are, that no matter what is done with the game from this point forward, you will hate it. That is all.
King Killer Chronicles - Patrick Rothfus

And spend more money on this game?

HA!


You are wasting your time on these forums though...why? If the game sucks so bad, go spend your time elsewhere doing other things. But you would rather just whine.
Saying you like Dragonlance books, I hope you've read the inception series' books ? Chronicles & Legends ?

Some of my favourite books of all time. So much love goes into the characters and like any good book you end up caring about the characters as well.
Of the dungeons and dragons genre of books some of my favorites are:
Clerics Quintet (a change of pace from the standard RA Salvatore D&D fare)
Tribe of One (Dark Sun trilogy by Simon Hawke)

For some other genres some of my favorites are:
Incarnations of Immortality (Piers Anthony)
Enders game series (Orson Scott Card fyi movie coming out Nov 2013)
Shane Schofield series (Matthew Reilly)
A little about Dragons, but I've started reading the Riftwar Saga books by Raymond E. Feist and can't put them down.

Malazan Book of the Fallen by Steven Erikson. I am, I think the only fantasy reader who dislikes
A Song of Ice and Fire.

Edit :
The series starting with The Atrocity Archives by Charles Stross for a contemporay Cthulu setting I also found fun to read.


Although I wouldn't go as far as to say I "dislike" Martin's books, I have gripes with certain elements. For example his sadistic need to kill off characters (often to the point of being contrived), and (some) uninteresting side characters.

I second Erickson's Malazan series, though the epic scale of the series may be daunting and confusing for less avid readers.

My all-time favorite though, has to be the Wheel of Time. Memorable characters (on all sides), and a rich epic world.
as already suggested
Dark Tower - Stephen King
The Belgariad - David Eddings (Radek of Boktor = Radek the Merchant in D3)? eh eh?

Mistborn - Brandon Sanderson (spikes in the cultists backs)? eh eh?

also i thought
The Death Gate Cycle - Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman
was better than DragonLance o.O

^This guy gets it :)

I've been reading a far number of graphic novels recently. If you're into that sorta thing, I'd highly recommend The Sandman, Y : The last man & Precher. Three great series.
I don't think I am going to add anything new, but Wheel of Time is my favorite of all time, and Mistborn is also fantastic. The Sword of Truth books are also fantastic.

I couldn't get into the Dark Tower books, though.
