Относно: Welcome!
Here, I hope you will find a great group of open-minded people who love to read!

In Ancient times, there were people known as the Scribes. Their job was to record events and stories for future generations to enjoy. We are forever in their debt.

I read "Bitter Harvest" by Ann Rule.
It was very well written.Very descriptive ...almost too much so. It left me with a bitter taste in my mouth. Oh,I don't blame Ms Rule except to say she really knows how to draw an accurate picture. I almost threw the book out when I was finished. Anyone who has read it and has children would understand.

I agree Stardust....Ann's book "Small Sacrifices" will do the same thing.

9. септември 2003, 19:20:14
Относно: Re: favorite books
I enjoyed her writing very much and would have loved to read more of her work,but it's taking me awhile to get past "Bitter Harvest". (2 years lol)
Could you recommend something of hers I would like better,please? :-)

Usurper KM: "The Electric Cool-Aid Acid Test" was not written by Ken Kesey. Although it was about Kesey, the author was Tom Wolfe.

Oh honestly Ms Harleykins, you have a lot to answer for, I've just been and bought three Dean Koontz books from Amazon. Now I'm off to look for some John Grisham ones, haven't read any books for ages, now you've all started me off. lolololo

10. септември 2003, 14:34:52
Hey its Magenta who started this board, don't blame me!! ROFL!!
Dean Koontz? Excellent choice! I have his whole collection! Don't forget Graham Masterton and Richard Layman!! And check out Stephen Kings 'Insomnia' if you haven't already. Fantastic!

Относно: Re:
Oh right, yes I like Graham Masterton, haven't tried RL, I don't always enjoy Stephen King for some reason, I did enjoy the Shawshank Redemption, it was only a short story too, I read it a long time before they made a film of it, and the book was even better than the film, which usually is the case.

I do love Dean Koontz though, that's why I ordered three, I got a lot of catching up to do on my reading.

Speaking of Graham Masterton, what were the titles of the books that involved those guys who were sort of super-heroes in their dreams? It's a long time since I read them.

10. септември 2003, 15:04:38
Night Warriors?

He also did PREY set in the UK Isle Of Wight I think. Very far fetched but good non-the-less

10. септември 2003, 15:15:01
I've read all his at one time or another. Excellent.
I've got a pile of Clive Barker books but I haven't read any yet!

Well I've just ordered three more books. Two of Wilbur Smith, who can do no wrong in my eyes, I've read nearly all his books.
I was looking at that book called PREY, but couldn't make my mind up about it.
