Re: i need a new book

Do you want adult fantasy or teen?  All the series you've listed are normally shelved in the kids/teens section of the bookstore.
 
You might also want to cross-post this in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy board.

Re: i need a new book

 I think you should read some Tolkein if you haven't already.  There is a Tolkein group that is just finishing with The Hobbit and will be starting The Fellowship of the Ring this month.  They love Tolkein "newbies" :smileyvery-happy:

Re: i need a new book

I recommend Terry Pratchet's books. He has a series called Discworld. Two of my favorites are The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents and A Hat Full of Sky. The first discworld book The Color of Magic is being turned into a movie. You don't have to read them in order and some are better than others.

Neil Gaiman is also excellent.

Re: i need a new book

I love the new author, Gail Z. Martin.  She has written two books so far:
 
The Summoner (book1  of  the Chronicles of the Necromancer). The Blood King is the 2nd in series.  This is a comfortable fantasy, if you have already read Tolkien,  David Edding's Belgariad series, or Terry Brooks, Ms Martin will feel familiar. The cover to the Summoner is awesome.  I think that is why I picked it up, and I am so glad I did. I read the book in one day (and well into the night).

Re: i need a new book

Try Madeliene L'Engle A  Wrinkle in Time and several others inthe series.  Also the series--His Dark Materials--they made the golden compass into a movie but there are two more in the series.  I agree the discworld series is awesome and so are the Nursery Crime Division Series by Jasper Fforde.

Re: i need a new book

someone told me about a movie called the secret of roan inish. it is based on a book by rosalie fry, called the secret of ron mor skerry and also published as child of the western isles. .
 
the movie is supposed to be good so you might want to find it too. it is an independent film. 
 
this is an excerpt from the book. http://echoes.devin.com/selkie/ronmor.html
i hope this is helpful.
whoops, i just found this website. http://www.feralchildren.com/en/listbooks.php?bk=fry1995 it actually offers the book but it is very expensive. i don't know why. maybe you can actually find an online version on some website..
