vanderk86: Islandia by Austin Tappan Wright, is by far... the finest Utopian novel ever written. He was a Harvard professor who spent 40yrs working on one novel. It's a masterpiece.

apples: Probably "The Glass Palace" by Amitav Ghosh. I love F. Scott Fitzgerald's style, and Truman Capote's. Read "Breakfast at Tiffany's" a few years ago, not crazy about the story but loved the way it was written.

There are also some great nonfiction books that may take bit more effort, but which open you up to new ways of seeing the world; "The Insider: Trapped in Saddam's Brutal Regime" by Ala Bashir, (Iraq) "A Long Way Gone" (Sierra Leone) by Ishmael Beah... I really need to start writing down what I read, I'm really bad at names.

There's a book called "Exploring Social Psychology", think the author of that one was David G. Myers. Both interesting and entertaining.

Oh - "Down Under" by Bill Bryson (Norwegian translation is my favourite, oddly enough) - a lot of fun and very good stories to tell your siblings/children when trying to entertain/make them do something

PerpetualDreamer
PerpetualDreamer: James Rollins is currently my favorite author. His writing grabs the attention and the next thing one knows, one is believing anything. The Last Oracle might actually have been better then Sandstorm. I wish I could find some comparable reads.

Kalla
Kalla: I alwas appreciated Sir Arthur C. Clarke and his timless classic "The City and the Stars" - about the last city on Earth, set billions of years in the future and where everyone is afraid of ever finding out what's beyond the city walls.
Another favourite author is Walter Dean-Myers ("Fallen Angels" and also Livia E. Bitton Jackson - "Elli"

pureitaliangino: flowers in the attic was pretty good. I'll read anythign Tolkien, and the Harry Potter series was good also. Right now I'd have to say my favourite writer WAS Mario Puzo. Any body read BraveHeart and then watch the movie?
