I used this today to select some books to read.

So thanks to all who contributed, unless the books are shite, then cheers for nothing :P

What did you pick? Hope they work out. I've gotten through about half of the books at least on my list above, and there are a lot of average ones, with a couple really great books and a couple really bad ones.

Blindsight. I'm hoping to get a couple of baths out of it.

Good choice. Of all the stuff that's been recommended on this forum, I think Blindsight is one of the best. It soothes that Bakker itch.

Just finished the first part. It's really good so far. Had to go back and re-read a couple of things to get all the characters names into my head and their "occupations" but every book is like that for me.

I've been on the hunt for books with characters similar to Proyas. Looking for some recs.

Oddly enough, Ganeos Paran(Malazan) reminds me a little of him. Only Paran is not quite as emotional or religious. So for him, there's no faith to break. Heh.
Faith is the truth of passion. Since no passion is more true than another, faith is the truth of nothing.
