Could you name some really good fantasy books please?
I like fantasy books with swords and magic and heroes with real interesting story lines. Can you think of some that would be good for someone in there 20's? I don't mind reading teenage or young adult stuff because I still feel as though I'm young.

ERAGON!!!!!!! ALL THE WAY! Its one of the best books i've ever read. Then there's two books after it called Eldest and Brisingr. and a fourth one is on the way. They're all written by Christopher Paolini.
If you've already read it then how about these:
Lord of the rings
the Narnia books
Mark Robson's books
Riddles of epsilon
a series of unfortunate events (not very magical but a good read anyway)
The last dragonlord
Hope this helps!

The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan is a great series. It's really long though...I think 13 volumes are planned and each volume is around 700 pages. It has a more magical feel than Lord of the Rings and there's a nice amount of swordplay involved as well.
Here's Amazon's link to the first volume in the series. http://www.amazon.com/Eye-World-Wheel-Time-Book/dp...

Lord of the Rings is everything you've mentioned, I'm 22 and love it. I think it is targeted more at adults then little kids because it's complex
