Dunno The Old Testament is a fantastic read.
The sequel wasnt so good though.
The ending's a bit bleak.
I'm waiting on the prequel coming out. Or the "Bible II - The Return of Jesus - This time it's personal". Or, the inevitable Hollywood 'reboot'.
"Jesus Christ - Lust For Glory"
Jesus cooks for 5,000 recipe book ,how to stretch meals
"Sacralicious " The Times
Rise of the foot soldier
The governer - Lenny Mclean
Bobby Robson - autobiography
Christopher Brookmyre's new one, Where the Bodies are Buried, is very good. One of his bets ones actually in my opinion.
All time favourite would be The Joke by Milan Kundera.
Here's my tuppeny woth: -
Anything written by Dan Brown should be burned. He is an affront to the English Language (and I have read the Da Vinci Code). I believe his style of writing suits his main demographic readership - Americans - as it's written for simpletons.
I love Fly Fishing by JR Hartley but if you're looking for a whole series of books to lose yourself into then I recommend Raymond E Feist's Midkemia series. Absolutely gripping.
Yep, Dan Brown has the writing style and depth of a 5 year old. Same as that twat who wrote Jurassic Park, forgotten his name, I had the misfortune to start reading one of his ****ty books.
Dan brown and John Grisham just write film scripts rather than novels.
yes I too have read the da vinci code and thought it was absolute gash...pains me to see people loving his work
I actually quite like the Michael Crichton books I've read!
That's the chappie. I read "Swarm" or something like that. Well partially read it. So dreadfully written it made me angry reading it. The same effect reading Dan Brown had on me.
I quite like the books by Danny King,
The Burglar Diaries is really funny.
so you slate a massive book series that is fantastically written, yet you like Michael Crichton books?
Have you read any of his books?
Surely you can't criticise them if you haven't read them?
BTW I've read 2 of his books, Timeline and Rising Sun which have a page count equal to about 1 Robert Jordan book.
Here's the description of a Robert Jordan book by one of his FANS -
"In Crossroads of Twilight, expect more politicking, planning, negotiating, committee discussions, bathing, dressing, shopping, and description of tapestries and seating arrangements than action. THE PLOT DOES NOT MOVE. There were very few significant occurrences -- mostly the characters just talked to themselves and others."
I've also read Enid Blyton books and enjoyed them!
woo hoo good for you
