Emne: 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.

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!

Emne: 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? :-)

9. September 2003, 19:11:33
Emne: Re: favorite books
I agree Stardust....Ann's book "Small Sacrifices" will do the same thing.

9. September 2003, 18:42:33
Emne: Re: favorite books
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.

9. September 2003, 18:27:30
I forgot to mention Jane Jensen.

Emne: 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.
