gsdfargo: Does anyone here have an opinion on the writings of Phillip Roth? I only read one book by him..."The Plot Against America". It left me 'lukewarm'. I know that he has a huge body of work, something 23 published novels and I am curious as to other's opinions of his writing before 'diving' into that 'body'...
Dyani_Dhee: my favorite novel is The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCollough. its wonderful, complicated, and very much alive novel. and most of all, theres some 'forbidden' in it

SecularSarah: Two that come to mind are "The Name of the Rose" by Umberto Eco, and "Ringworld" by Larry Niven. Two very different books, so that gives you an idea of how far ranging my tastes can sometimes be!
