Recently I came across a new book series called the Legend of Drizzt. While this series is not exactly new, it was new to me. I stumbled across the first book in a Barnes and Noble back home in San Diego. It was written by R.A. Salvatore, which is a name I recognized, and it was in the same area as the Dungeons and Dragons books which I was already looking at. I figured I needed some new books to read and picked it up. This turned out to be an amazing decision. I never ended up reading it until almost a year or two later, but when I did I immediately ordered quite a few of the next books. Now for a spoiler-free synopsis.
Being a school based in technology we tend to talk about games and movies quite a bit. Yet so much of these two mediums are born from the depths of truly great books that its a unfortunate that they don't get brought up more here. Even when people talk about Game of Thrones, outstanding books though they are, more often than not people are talking about the TV show rather than the books themselves. I recently got through the Game of Thrones series and so far I'm loving every bit of it. Naturally the series isn't over just yet, and when we'll see the final two books is anyone's guess but I'll probably rush right out on the day they're released and snap them up eagerly.
