It was super hard for me to find anything to offer as critique for this as the draftsmanship and animation is very solid, but here are ...

Favourite books, authors and stories?

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 18, 2014, 2:43 AM
Hey all, was interested in knowing the kind of books you read and why you find them entertaining? Do you have any favourite authors or books that the author has written? What kinds of stories do you find yourself attracted to?

My list of favourite authors is currently very small, one name to be exact which is Robin Hobb. I have struggled to find other books that meet my demands so well, of course I enjoy other books but find the stories tend to be lacking in one area or another for my tastes. My "tastes" tend to be realistic medieval fantasy with believable characters and magic heavily down played in the universe. Stories like those told by Alexander Dumas, tend to be very close to the kind story arch I like to see a character go through. The character would tend to start being well off and respected in society and then lose everything and be forced to make drastic changes to their life that ultimately take them to the end of the story. The other aspect of storytelling I tend to like is when a writer/narrator of some sort is present in the universe like in Percy Fitz Gerald's writing or Brian Jacques. It adds an extra dimension of immersion for me as a reader, I mean if stories can be told within a story the universe must be real right? :b

What are your thoughts? :)
