I'm a huge fantasy book reader myself, started off with the obvious wizards and warriors kinda stuff (I actually read all the World of Warcraft pocket novels which I have to say are rather good)

Anyway, one serie and one book:

Name: The discworld series
Author: Terry Pratchett (this guy writes faster then I read!)
Quick Summary: Every book tells another story of multiple characters in a world known as the discoworld. The discworld is best described as a big pizza which is on the back of 4 giant elephants which are standing on the back of a huge space turtle. And that explanation on it's own gives you quite a good idea what these books are like Wink
Likes: The humor and the fantasy world with hints toward the real world. You can read a build up of 60 pages where after in 1 page everything comes together perfectly and you're literally rolling on the floor laughing.
Dislikes: To many books, I can't keep up with reading!

Name: Orcs
Author: Stan Nicholls
Quick Summary: A band of the most feared orcs employed by an evil Queen fears for there lives after failing there mission and desides to go rogue.
Likes: Blood and guts! I never read a book that was able to paint me such a picture of what's going on before. These orcs are trained killers and it's lovly to see/read them do what they were trained for. Nicely passed with nicely rounded characters, went through it really fast.
Dislikes: They could easily write 3 more books to round up the story better.

Name: Neuromancer
Author: William Gibson
Quick Summary: Cyberpunk classic from 1984, first book of the Sprawl trilogy. Case is a "space cowboy" hired to do the ultimate job as a hacker.
Likes: The cyberspace as a concept was coined in this novel and Gibson takes cyberpunk and literature in general to a whole other level. His language is unique and he invents words like no other author before him (my opinion), and he manages to describe both the beauty and ugliness of the corrupt, rotting human being in such way that the reader is left begging for more. Luckily there are many more novels by him to read. A really hot book, cool at the same time!
Dislikes: You really need to concentrate when you try to conquer this one, but on the other hand you'll read it many times again, because the language is so special that it's impossible to take the whole story in on the first reading.

I'm reading it the second time now, first one was about ten years ago, and I had forgotten surprisingly much due to above-mentioned reasons.
