Welcome to the Fire-heart Klub!
« on: June 09, 2010, 03:46:59 am »
Greetings, Excellent and Admirable Readers and Kindlefriends.

If you're reading this, you have most likely read, or are beginning to read 'Fire-heart (a Tale of Alterra, The World that Is)'.
The Elfhunter Book Klub has contained a number of topics which have spilled over into the other books, but we now have a marvelous little corner of cyberspace reserved for this, the second book in the trilogy.

As you are aware if you've ever seen it in print, 'Fire-heart' is a lengthy beastie. It's the 'long journey'...the characters travel over a thousand miles. As you can imagine, such a journey reveals many new realms and challenges in the Alterran landscape. Such stories take time (and pages) to tell. There are many new characters introduced as well (one of whom quickly became a favorite of mine).

I have decided to try a different strategy with this segment: I will not be putting forth 'discussion questions.' Rather, I will suggest that you, the readers, post your own topics. I might start you off with one or two, but please add them as you read or whenever you feel the urge.

As always, I like nothing better than interacting with readers, so I am really looking forward to this! Enjoy it with me, won't you?

    This book really made me appreciate the desert. I truly believed I was there traveling with Gaelen, Orogond, Nelwyn, and Galador. My favorite doorstop. ;)

    Don't quite understood how this works, where do we write about the book?:)

    I have started, finally! Just started chapter 3 now. It's already hooking!
    Is it dangerous to spoil here maybe?

    Winter:

    Unlike the Elfhunter Klub, where I posed a series of questions on various sections of the book, this one is left open for YOU to discuss whatever you'd like. You can make your own threads about whatever you'd like to talk about. If there are spoilers, that's okay--just warn people. I've made a new topic just for you and your sister to begin discussions on! See if you can tell which one it is.  :D

    If you'd like to see threads devoted to specific questions/topics, just start one! Examples: Who's your favorite character? What's your favorite scene? Which scene did you DISlike the most? Which character is the most like you (or someone you know) in personality? What back-stories would you most like to read? The possibilities are unlimited. Let's have some fun with a big, blue doorstop!

    Winter: By what name should we refer to your sister online? You're 'Winter'--what would she like to be called?

    She uses her own name :) Inghild.
    She isn't that often on Internet though. She borrowed my iPhone, because her computer wouldn't work with kindleboards for some reason.

    She's sleeping now, but i'm not tired.

    Okay let's try this and see how it works:

    God dag Winter og Inghild. Hpe du har en stor lesing dag dags dato. JEG elsket FIREHEART dens en forblffende opplevelsen.

    Winter and Inghild -- I'll leave it to you to determine how well the on-line translator worked.  ;)

    Glad you are enjoying FIREHEART -- its an amazing adventure and Archer certainly does a superb job of making sure you are along for the ride doesn't she?

    Here's the one I used for the above translation.

    http://www.translation-guide.com/free_online_translators.php?from=English&to=Norwegian

    Oh, but now you are gonna know what i said to them!!  :o
    (just kidding Archer)

    Apparently it doesn't do really well though since when I translated it back to English "good reading day" got morphed into "bumper perusal day" and it morphed "fantastic" into something weird....  Hopefully Winter and Inghild have a sense of humor.  :D
