"In The Company of Ogres" - A Lee Martinez
« on: October 19, 2010, 07:52:52 AM »
This is a fun book.  quick reading.  a quirky twist on the fantasy fiction genre.

a military base staffed by ogres, goblins, humans, elves and orcs and more.

wizards and minor deities fighting and a single nare do well named Never Dead Ned is stuck in the middle of it all.

Did I mention it was fun? cuz it is.

By The Way,  you can pretty much pick up any of A Lee Martinez's books and get a fun, fast read.  He is definitely an up and coming author  to watch.

not an author i have read.  will have to look for him.  sometimes light and funny is just the ticket!   :-D
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

he is my current favorite "headache" author.

When  I have a really bad headache,  I find that reading something fun and fictional helps to make it go away.  It helps it dissipate a bit at the very least.  Every one of A Lee's books is good for a mental escape and easy on the head.

I thought it was a history of the Obama administration.
