Bo shank: to kill a mockin bird and any thing by anne rice and richard laymond also i like history book about tudor history written by david starkey
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.
laura_fun: Hi... I am a fan of Erich Segal... The last book that I read of his was "Acts of Faith"... I like John Grisham too
mango: I like Lin Yutang. He's a great English and Chinese writer. I like his books such as "My country and my people" and "The importance of living". He almost won the Nobel Prize for one of his works.
otcclass: My favorite books are historical romance books and my favorite authors are Madeline Baker and Cassie Edwards
Geoff: Gotta be Sir Terry Pratchett, no-one else I have read shows such an understanding of human nature.
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: 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: 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?
Emmaleingosch: I like to read Laura Gallego García or Stephenie Meyer, Federico Moccia or Carlos Ruiz Zafón, Emily Brontë, but my favourite book is the one of Alejandro Dumas The three musketeers.
