Depends on what you're looking for. I really liked Paulo Coelho's works. The Alchemist for example is a great read. Herman Hesse's Siddhartha is also not a bad choice. Kazuo Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go, and White Sargasso Sea are also great. Hope I helped ;)

I would recommend Kate Morton's 3 wonderful books. They are very gripping family sagas, very homely and engaging. She is currently my favourite author and i can't wait for her next novel

The 3 books by Stieg Larsson starting with 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' were a brilliant read couldn't put them down!

I have just read Random Acts of Heroic love by Danny Scheinmann. Fantastic. Give it a try.

Angel, you may also want to read Observations by Jane Harris. Not my usual type of book, but was worth reading. If you want real life and real characters, read all of George East's 'Mill of the Flea' series. Hilarious and very informative on expats moving to France.

I agree with you on Paulo Coelho. Have read most of his books. And Wide Sargasso Sea is excellent.

If you enjoy a sequence of novels and wonder where your going next I Think that Tom Clancy books are really great reading. The main character is Jack Ryan and it's not a fisticuffs back to front. Tom Clancy seems able to write several Books on Jack Ryan every one being different and complex
All I can say is I personally enjoyed every one I read hope you give them a try Tony Connolly

Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean M. Auel is the first of a series of 6 books, of which i am currently enthralled with reading the 5th book. I have been captivated by the detail and emotion of them since the time i picked up the first book years ago :o)

"one day" a bit slow in the beginning but soon it gets interesting :), the way is written is quite interesting. "winter in madrid" is very good, you can put it down, and you learn a bit of history as well.

The Catalytic Programme and A Lucky Break by Terry Callister
Moorcroft - The Obsession and Moorcroft - The Possession (2 of a trilogy) by Sandra Callister

All fantastic reads and are available either through Amazon or Smashwords

Green River Rising and The Religion both by Tim Willocks - both brutal but mesmerising. Agree with those above who recommend the Steig Larsson "Girl" trilogy - could not put them down. Fantasy - Lord of The Rings. Comedy - anything by Stephen Fry (especially his autobiography Moab is my Washpot, The Liar and The Stars Tennisballs). I could list more favourites in different genres but you are probably bored already! Enjoy.
