I don't know, I rather liked Angels and Demons. The DaVinci Code was tolerable but the ending was pretty bad.

I have to say, I recall some teenage horror I really hated. R. L. Stine and Christopher Pike for the most part. Oh and a series called the Runelords by David Farland. That man should not be allowed to write.
My mind is like a sieve. It retains all sorts of interesting bits and lets the important stuff flow straight through.

Interesting that you should say that... Actually, I feel rather similar about them. The later books just aren't nearly as interesting. They focus way to much on philosophical perspectives of the author and far too little on actual plot movement.

I have forgotten what in particular Soul of Fire was about, but the last book I can even remember liking was the one about the plague, which I'm thinking was probably Temple of Winds.

So yeah... The first few I enjoyed immensely, the later ones have made me sad that the series keeps continuing. Kind of like the Wheel of Time series... it just never ends!  :P

Except that Terry Goodkind has promised an ending. I think Phantom is the first book in the final trilogy of the Sword of Truth books. Of course I'm not entirely sure since I've only read the first five or so.

Excellent! So you should quit now while you are ahead and still like the series.  ;)
