    I mainley read books from Stephen King and Dean R Koontz;
    At the moment i'm reading "Lisey's story" by S king. WHen i've finish it i'm going to start on the tower series.
    I read a bundle of short story's from Isaac Asimov too, I liked it.
    I've read a book by Pierre Outilette "Deus ex machina" it's excellent. It's about a supercomputer messing with DNA.

    It's really a shame fewer and fewer people are reading books.
    I'm glad my daughters are sharing my passion for books.
    I'm wife reads a lot of books to but more "true stories."

    I would recommend anyone one to that can read Japanese to read 'Juni Kokuki' fiction novel series. Another that comes to mind is 'Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu' novels. Both very good.

    guardians of the forest by graham macneil (mcneil?). is a good fantasy book. he also writes good warhammer 40k scifi books usualy on space marines. i think he is an excellent writter personaly.


    but i know many people who dislike him, but i think his work is great and worth reading.


    peace.

    My favorites, already mentioned elsewhere but if I can get anybody else to read them I'll make their day :

    Orson Scott Card - "Ender's game" and "Ender's Shadow"

    Stephen King - "The Sharpshooter" (Tower 1 book)

    In all 3 of these books, it's the immersion that got me. It's like watching a movie of the book, and you wrote the screenversion... Great characters.

    I just read a book called "Cauldron" by Jack McDevitt. Very interesting and fast reading. I picked up 4 other books he wrote from the library.

    ???

    Never heard of it.

    If you're referring to the "Dark Tower" series, book one is entitled "The Gunslinger".

    Seeing as there are other Halo fans on this forum, has anyone read their new book ? It totally screws up the timeline.

    I can't believe that piece of shit movie won the Oscar over Transformers. That has the most amazing special effects that we've seen yet. Definately ILM's best work.
