Good book:

The Deathworld Trilogy. It is so far, anyway, and I'm halfway through the whole thing. Fantastic read! Written in 1960, '64, and '68

Good books to read:

The Flanders Panel by Arturo Perez-reverte
its more sophisticated than the da vinci code.

The asti Spumante code by toby clements
If you've read The da vinci code you will realise this book basically makes a joke of it, if you havent, you could proberly tell what he was making fun of

There was a good parody I saw in the shops of the DaVinci Code called the VaDinci code. I didn't buy it cause it was short and expensive, but the blurb on the back cracked me up. I think I made a thread about it...

For those LOTR fans, I suggest trying George R.R. Martin's series starting with "A game of thrones". I typically don't read much fantasy, exept notable exceptions, and this is one. Multiple story lines that intersect and/or happen simultaneously, original and exciting. He has also written sci-fi (My favorite is "Sandkings") and an original vampire story--not typical gothic style.

I also enjoy Koontz, King, some Tom Clancy, Tolkien, Dan Brown and Patricia Cornwell.

My dad loves that series by George R. R. Martin. I've never read it, but I know a lot of what happens because he gets so excited about it and tells me all that's happening I bought him the fourth one for Christmas and the title sounds really good : A Feast of Crows. Ooooooooo

Okay, I just finished "a million little pieces" and even with all the hoopla about how it's not true, it's still a damn good book. I couldn't put it down. I went into it thinking it was just a fictional story and I loved it. I will go out and buy the second one now, and I hope it's just as good...

Welcome to INReview. I love LOTR. I appreciate the suggestion. I will put it on my birthday list.

Diana Galbaldon's Outlander series:

1. Outlander
2. Dragonfly In Amber
3. Voyager
4. Drums of Autumn
5. The Fiery Cross
6. A Breath of Snow and Ashes

In Outlander, a 600-page time-travel romance, strong-willed and sensual Claire Randall leads a double life with a husband in one century, and a lover in another. Torn between fidelity and desire, she struggles to understand the pure intent of her heart. But don't let the number of pages and the Scottish dialect scare you. It's one of the fastest reads you'll have in your library.
While on her second honeymoon in the British Isles, Claire touches a boulder that hurls her back in time to the forbidden Castle Leoch with the MacKenzie clan. Not understanding the forces that brought her there, she becomes ensnared in life-threatening situations with a Scots warrior named James Fraser. But it isn't all spies and drudgery that she must endure. For amid her new surroundings and the terrors she faces, she is lured into love and passion like she's never known before.


I just finished the first book... and I have to say, it was AMAZING! I can't wait to get the rest of these.

Hello everyone. New to this, but thought this particular topic sounded interesting.

Nice to see people enjoying so many different books. I am quite varied, but love LOTR trilogy & Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy too. I'm also into political books, biographies, beat generation stuff, poetry etc & short stories.

I'm reading Brokeback Mountain & other short stories by Annie Proulx right now & absolutely loving them. I would thoroughly recommend short stories. They are so convenient & easy to read & if you're anything like me & take a while to wade through books, they're perfect. x
