First of all, hello! Well, I only buy books like three times a year (but I buy lots of 'em!) because I don't live in an english-speaking country. So, my parents are visiting the U.S. in a week or two, and one thing I know is that I'm going to buy Brisingr (What? I can't leave book collections incomplete ) and The Last Argument of Kings (the last book in 'The First Law Trilogy'. I was planning on buying The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett and Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. My question is, are these books good? By the way, does anyone knows of novels that have the same style as The Hobbit?
