That's why you should have read Abercrombie and Lynch instead.

You read high fantasy and didn't expect the MC to be perfect? You're an idiot.

A song of ice and fire > Kingkiller chronicles.

its your own fault for picking a shittier fantasy franchise to read.

Dominic Murphy

Ironically, both series that will never be finished.

So go read Joe Abercrombie instead.

Robert Cruz
Robert Cruz

I read the first book not long ago. It was quite honestly one of the worst pieces of literature I've ever read.

The main character is a fucking faggot who thinks he's hot shit and some sort of genius.
But for the majority of the book he's obsessing over the most trivial shit, like how fucking poor he is, or his childish back-and-forths with the school bully, all while being lead around by his prepubescent boner for that Dena slut.

It's absolutely baffling how much attention that piece of shit gets, but when I compare it to the likes of SAO it all starts to make sense.

James Collins

Thats the good part of GOT

The prose was decent and people are a sucker for harry potter bullshit.

Me, I prefer battle royal bullshit, so my current flavor is Red Rising.

Nolan Mitchell

I prefer the brand of high fantasy where everybody are just dysfunctional idiots trying to get by a crazy world.

Fine anime is all garbage and manga is a shitty medium since STB and blue Exorcist exists.

Not all obviously. Try reading something good like Harry Potter or A Song of Ice and Fire.

Go read something something of the malazan something, you might notice a single author is not a representation of the whole western book media.

Christopher Bennett

So its like an american berserk? Amazing low fantasy story that looses some steam later on, and will not be finished in the next 10 years...

Nathan Wright

This isn't good? Shit, I was going to read it next after I finish Mistborn.

Brandon Moore
Brandon Moore

I know you're shitposting, but Potter is good.

Ethan Price
Ethan Price

So its like an american berserk
No.
Just skip Mistborn and go to Stormlight, Sanderson was a total hack until 2010, at which point he became a partial hack.

Luke Ortiz
Luke Ortiz

Potter is good.
Holy shit user.

Let's ignore the plot completely.

JK Rowling has the prose and literary pacing of a retarded tree sloth.

She makes Clive Cussler look like Murakami.

Isaiah Walker

A song of Ice and Fire will be finished by some hack like Kevin J. Anderson.

Christopher Jenkins

People need to put the fun in funtasy again.

I need some of that chill discovering-the-world SoL shenanigans.

Nathaniel Rogers
Nathaniel Rogers

This is pretty much a western LN.

Gary Stu protagonist who can do everything and anything, including being a sex god during his first time.

On top of that he's a complete white knight who can't fuck the girl he's been going after since the beginning of his story, who by the way is a literal whore.

Kevin Carter
Kevin Carter

The one where Denna literally fucks a thousand dudes and Kvothe plays Not!-Go with the dude that is secretly the evil guy fucking and beating her black and blue?

And anime sex ninjas? And the anime sex fairly? And what feels like 4000 pages stuck in the forest doing nothing?

Elijah Ramirez
Elijah Ramirez

A good adaptation of a song of ice and fire books. Honestly, this kinda book works only as an anime. It's too long and complicated for a movie, and the tv series has gone down the shitter after season 4 (it is literally the worst thing airing right now). Only an anime can do such a
Book series any justice, since they can do more with that medium than tv and movies.

Jace Sanchez
Jace Sanchez

Pirates just like One Piece.

Parker Jackson

Potter is good

Funny because when I read Harry Potter, It felt like I was reading a magic academy light novel due to how terrible it was.

Parker Flores
Parker Flores

Son, I've been reading fantasy since before you were born.

Just because you can't handle a protagonist that isn't an anime action hero, doesn't mean all of us can't.

Logan King
Logan King

I recently read Animal Farm (I'm from a fucking third world country, cut me some slack) and I really like how the author is really good at painting a picture in your mind with just words, as well as tackling really serious themes and making fun of them - while also remaining a pretty good story itself.

For someone who reads mostly LNs, which books do you guys recommend (for starters)?

Jeremiah Sanders
Jeremiah Sanders

I bet you enjoy the works of Brandon Sanderson.

Jayden Hernandez

Is there no MMO fantasy book/movie (like SAO, Konosuba) in murrica?
Just curious.

Jeremiah Parker

I had huge anime vibes reading this.

Also scifi > fantasy

Parker Long

To be fair, the books go down the shitter after the 2nd one too. I don't know how much each season covers since I've never watched the show.

Mason Wright
Mason Wright

I don't know what that is but it looks like hot garbage. Read good fantasy like Book of the New Sun if you absolutely have to read fantasy.

Landon Garcia
Landon Garcia

The Wheel of Time? I dropped the series during the 10th book because I lost interest and patience in reading and I hate every fiber of my being for it but the series were actually pretty solid, even if the pacing was quite slow.

Andrew Sanders
Andrew Sanders

Funny because when I read Harry Potter, It felt like I was reading a magic academy light novel due to how terrible it was.

That's pretty much exactly what Harry Potter is. Young Adult fiction is Young Adult fiction no matter where you are.

I want to see Shadowmarch in animu form.
Tad Williams writing basically screams SHAFT and they even have elven nips.

Robert Jordan openly admitted to stretching it out to keep making money when he realized there was still interest. Just like my japanese mangos.

Something like Otherland maybe?

Landon Parker

What about Malazan Book of the Fallen?

Wyatt Wood

I still enjoyed the fuck out of it, and Winter's Heart was hype. I just need to get into reading books again and perhaps I'll finish the series.

Noah Allen
Noah Allen

You guys should really try and read things that aren't fantasy or sci-fi.

Adam Wood
Adam Wood

And anime sex ninjas
Oh yea the sex ninja amazon tribe or whatever that trained Kvothe in chinese kempo and he paid for it by having to fuck them.

Could have found that story on sadpanda.

Dylan Hall
Dylan Hall

Otherland was actually really good too. IMO.

Parker Gutierrez

Is it true that the Wheel of Time is basically a western LN? I heard that it's a harem with tsundere girls and everything, kind of makes me want to read it

Noah Lopez
Noah Lopez

If I wanted real world I would go outside.

Grayson Robinson
Grayson Robinson

in 2 years maybe. then another 6 or 7 for the last one.

GRRM works
good
And what is wrong with the works of GRRM? i have read most of hi older, sci fi novels, and they are fascinating as fuck. After reading those, i got a whole new perspective on the ASOIAF books. At this point im expecting the main plot twist to be that its a sci fi story, not fantasy.

So i dont see a reason (other than being a contrarian) for anyone hating on GRRM's works.

Luis Bell

Logan Thomas
Logan Thomas

I'm not really fan of western books but the only western fantasy I've read was Percy Jackson and it was pretty good.

Jacob Davis
Jacob Davis

I do, not really relevant to the direction the thread is heading. And sci-fi/fantasy is pretty good junk food, with the occasional book that actually has some literary merit thrown into the mix as well.

Jason Wilson
Jason Wilson

Tamora Pierce's Circle of Magic series would do pretty well. One guy joins up with three girls (ojou-hime, tsundere red head, dark skinned tomboy who ends up becoming a lesbian later). Guy also has a MILF-tier teacher and acquires his own stubborn loli whilst on adventures.

Pretty wild ride overall considering how many books there are now.

Cooper Martinez
Cooper Martinez

You have no power here.
Night Angel was hot garbage.

Lightbringer is fun, but is suffering from terrible bloat and some moronic character choices.

Hudson Perry

Yeah, but I don't mind folk-ish stuff as well.

I don't want anything hard sci-fi, though.

Nicholas Smith

This series is absolute garbage. I don't know why its so hyped up.
I think the Black Company would make a very good animated series.

Netflix pls

Did you hear he's separating his last book into two separate books, with the next one being set to release in 2018? Quality bloat.

Jaxson Hernandez

I bet you think all movies are film

Michael Long
Michael Long

I have never read a LN yet but considering the reputation those books have, I'd say it's quite different. The vocabulary used isn't exactly everyday stuff, world-building is pretty great (if we can ignore what the first book did because it was honestly dumb on quite a bit of occasions, especially at the end) and there's a look into character psychology (even if the MC has a martyr complex that can be very unnerving).

Juan Walker
Juan Walker

Literature, in its broadest sense, consists of any written productions. More restrictively, it refers to those deemed to have artistic or intellectual value, or which deploy language in ways that differ from ordinary usage.

Depends on how you use the word.

Asher Rivera

Okay. I got it. You want me to read some Carl Sagan?

Brandon James
Brandon James

He acquires god like sex skills after he spends a surreal amount of time in some kind of magical space together with some kind of sex god fairy.
I think only 1 day or so passes by while he spends several months in there or so.

He there acquires super dicking skills and then ends up in the sex ninja tribe who fuck people so often they think men are not necessary in the reproduction process because they have so often sperm inside them they dont realize the causal connection.

And if I remember correctly Kvothe is at the time of his training the only guy there.

Elijah Richardson

I should never read through books thread on Sup Forums, all this fantasy wankery, it's like I'm on /v/.

Are they really that bad? I bought both of them but have yet to start reading.

Jose Jones

Dude, it's a comparison with Japanese LNs, of course you'll get Western fantasy.

Henry Gonzalez
Henry Gonzalez

worst thing airing
thinking Got will work as an anime
Kill yourself. In the modern day industry, they would butcher the entire show and make nearly all the characters Fujo baits, loli's, and stupid Gary stu's.
The violence will also be dulled and all those scenes where women are supposed to be brutally raped will just them being beaten or not even show them at all. Like it or not but, the Tv Adaptation is the best we're going to get.
And how the hell is the show lame? I've been hooked watching it since the end of season 5. It made me actually go and read the books. LOTR never did that for me.

Brandon Clark
Brandon Clark

No, but I read a copy of Harry Potter drunk while One Tree Hill played in the background.

So I think I can discuss it with you.

Justin Evans
Justin Evans

No one is going to call Rothfuss literature. His novels are essentially the book version of flicks, or lazy cash-in LNs.

Luis Evans

What about The Broken Empire, all that edgy would fit anime.

David Howard
David Howard

Guess what? You have shit taste. I've read the books, just like the show they are garbage after the 3rd book/season.

Brody Perez

I mean it's basically "What if Harry Potter was grimdark bullshit" so yeah I think you could. Also I've seen One Tree Hill, that shit was bad.

Sebastian Taylor
Sebastian Taylor

tfw Red Queen's War is superior in every way but you don't get some of the references because Prince of Thorns was utter dogshite

Eli Sanchez

Well fuck man what do you want? I can do short stories too.

Jorge Luis Borges has some pretty good ones.
