Comment George R. R. Martin (Score 1) 1021

I would replace Jordan with Martin (maybe). The quality of work is so much better IMO. I think he is really cutting edge, not the typical "farm boy saves the world", his writing seems to incorporate more realistic depictions of human relationships and uncertainty of life. Characters are deeper, some who you might detest at one point you later sympathize with and "almost" consider to be good, deep down. The material of Martin's books is pretty mature. Incest, rape (and rape of what we would consider children), some other pretty violent stuff...so from that aspect it may not be appropriate for high school...
