Do you read Forgotten Realms books, maybe Drizzt Do'Urden (Drow elf)?

his fall was not a small one.

a narrow and a tall one. - F.H.

For the same reason, albeit on a greater scale, I can't stand Richard from the Sword of Truth series. The alpha-in-disguise mentality doesn't ring true to me. Drizzt does it all! Able fighter, redeemed sinner, movement leader ... it's a bit much for me to accept.

I usually prefer my heroes with a tinge more realism. They may even die and often do. Dune, for example, has a lot of that. Game of Thrones has some too.

Understood.. Drizzt is a long-lived form of Drow elf... Elves can keep over 2000 years if form is fine... Next Dwarves as well, about 500?...

Game of Thrones is well "simple" history from Civil war for White and red Roses in England. No matter i want to look Season 3 and more!

I like Dune too, still they have long family members to build up.

It's that build-up that allows me to connect with the characters and see the bedrock of the motives they posses. They are so many layers to the decisions made, it takes a deal of time to have the reader understand them. This complexity is one of the reasons why Dune would really make a fantastic movie ... but one will probably never get made of it (that's worth a damn).

Icewind Dale Trilogy & Dark Elf Trilogy are perhaps the best fantasy novels this side of Tolkiien's Lord of the Rings.

If not they certainly are my favorite. I own a limited print paperback collectors edition of the Icewind Dale Trilogy Signed by R.A. himself. One of my most prized possessions. I also own a signed baseball signed by all members of the 1976 Cincinnati Reds "Big Red Machine" and a signed T-shirt with the cast of Star Wars "The Men behind the Mask" Vadar, C3PO, and R2.

I've read a few, but mainly minor ones (Elaine Cunningham). I have been more to Dragonlance and Krynn.
