It seems you like Sience Fiction, too. Do you know "The Way to Amalthea" by Arkadi and Boris Strugazki (or some other novels by the brothers Strukazki)?

Emne: Re: Fine company! :-)
Certainly a very fine company... Did you ever read "The Remains of the Day" by Kazuo Ishiguro?
At the moment I´m reading: "The last Emperor" (From Emperor to Citizen. The Autobiography of Aisin-Gidoro PU YI). Very interesting indeed.
And I recommend: Umberto Ecco: "Baudolino" (a book for those who did not forget the dreams of their youth or even childhood.)
A very intersting book too: Jung Chang: "Wild Swans". (Jung Chang, born 1952 in Yibin/Sichuan (China) was the first Chinese to receive a doctorate of a British University. She has been living in England since 1978.)
If your are intersted in history: Milovan Djilas: "Worlds and Bridges". (Djilas, who was a politician in the former Yugoslawia, wrote this book in jail in Belgrad. In this book you will find some of the important sources for the Balkan Wars, now and before the First World War.)

I enjoy King and Koontz rules!! Has anyone read "Dolan's Cadillac"? It's a short story in King's "Nightmares and Dreamscapes". I thought it was masterful!
As for "David Copperfield" , Dickens is my favourite story teller of all time!! :-)

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.

HellRaiser and Evil were good books!! And he has some fantastic games too. The Undying for one!!

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

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.

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: Who's to blame for this then????
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

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? :-)

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.
