I have two books I think are definately worth reading.

One is Tokyo by Mo Hayder, which has just recently come out. I think she's an excellent writer, and the plot of the story is brilliant and really original. It taught me a lot, which is definately the mark of a good book in my view. It's a thriller, and a bit graphic in parts. Overall an excellent read!

The other is The Anvil of Ice by Michael Scott Rohan, which I picked up in London a couple of days ago. I couldn't put it down. It's the first book in a series, and I'll definately be buying his other books soon. It's fantasy, and he has a wonderful, descriptive writing style, a little like Tolkien. I'd definately recommend this to any fantasy fan, it's an enjoyable read.

I thoroughly enjoyed Mitch Albom's The Five People You Meet In Heaven. It's an easy read, and wonderfully well written.

Also, The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. Such a beautiful story, and a great idea.

For shorts, I read Bernhard Schlink's collection, Flights of Love. Believable characters woven into interesting plots.

I'm currently reading David Mitchell's Ghostwritten and so far, about a hundred pages in, I'm hugely impressed by the quality of the writing; it really is marvellous.

Cheers,
Omni

What are the books like for reading Saffron ? I mean i recently tried to read the da vinnci code and found it boring because it was sort of "to hard" :roll: but are these books easy or not ?
 
I read the Davinci Code a few months ago and thought it was excellent. I think that type of book is more of an aquiered taste thing, not a level of difficulty thing.

I just finished The Count of Monte Cristo, and found it interesting, and surprising simple, (unless I missed some of the points) the only thing I didn't like was many of the characters had aliases.

Um, I like a variety of books, books by Iris Johanson and Tami Hoag I really enjoy.
