  • Broncos Book Club

    There a large number of us literary types roaming the boards, and given that some threads end up been a recommendation for some author or another, I thought it only appropriate to start.............

    The Broncos Book Club!

    Tell your fellow Broncomaniacs what you're reading at the moment.

    Do you recommend it?

    Any books or series that you do recommend?

    Any books we should stay away from for fear of scorched eyeballs from the hideousness of the writing?

    Share share share!



    I have just finished reading the 2nd book of the Sword of Truth series, The Stone Of Tears. It was a better book than the first one, and I'm looking forward to starting the 3rd book.

    Captain Nemo

    By KJ Anderson

    Pretty good book. Reading it for the second time.

    It's a story about Jules Verne, and Andre Nemo, but of course, it follows Nemo mostly. From childhood on.

    For action/adventure, I'd give it about a 9.

      Im down with a book club!

      I just finished reading book 2 two of the sellswords series, Promise of the witch king, by RA Salvatore. Unfortunately, I can read an 800 page book in a matter of hours, so books always go quickly for me. Ive read book 1 about 7 times by now.

      If your a fantasy buff, I recommend all of salvatores work, as well as some stuff in the forgotten realms setting.


      If you take what I have to say seriously, then I'm embarrassed for you.

        Wicked by Gregory Maguire, I am liking the authors style of writing so far. It is a little bit diffeernet, but it is developing into quite a good tale.

          Has anyone read Aragon by Christopher Paolini?

          For a kid, he's written a pretty good book! Fantasy type, with dragons and all that!

                  I'm currently reading James Michener's "Hawaii." A friend who knows how much I love the Aloha State suggested it to me and it is fabulous.

                    That is a good book! Too bad i read it 2 years ago and now forgot the story

                    Right now I'm reading Harry Potter Order of the Pheonix for like the 10th time

                    But since you refreshed my mind about Aragon i'm going to read it again and buy the 2nd one

                      I'm waiting for Eldest to come out in Paperback. Have you read the Alex Rider stuff? 14 year old becomes a spy for MI6! Cool stuff!

                      I like the Harry Potter series, very well written.

                      I started reading Messiah by Boris Starling, I've read one of his before(Storm), and it's very good crime/mystery stuff!

                        The Shadow of the WInd - fantastic first novel by Carlos Ruis Zafon. It's set in Barcelona in the years following the Spanish Civil War. It's one of the best books I've ever read.

                            I read that last year. On a flight from London back to Gib, someone left it on the plane, so I picked it up! Such a beautiful book!

                              Yes it was, so different to anything else I've read. I've been meaning to reread it for a while. I wonder if he's written anything else since.
