Books I want to look at over the break…
Dune, and the other (Frank) Herbert authored Dune novels.
Awaken, an autobiography by Chinese historian Gu Chang Sheng
The Chaos Walking series
I want to have a look at this Song of Ice and Fire business, which brings me on to:
The Belgariad (I was really into this as a kid)
The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, the Unbeliever. I was into the Covenant books when there were two trilogies. All I remember is being traumatized.
I’m well into Dune, and I more or less have to read Awaken, for work, so that’s a decent start.
