Thanks a lot. While I've nothing against YA, I'm more into a seriously themed story like Lord of The Rings or Memory, Sorrow and Thorn. I'm definitely not down with the porn/gore factor, but also I prefer a lyrical, poetic or evocative storyline/writing style. Any recommendations based on the two works listed above?
