Plus various history, aircraft, ship, and World War II books which I keep around the house.


I've been meaning to read the Halo books but i can't find them anywhere. Sad

And the bourne series is great. Very Happy

They are usually in the sci-fi section of either Barnes and Noble, Borders, or any of the large chain book stores

Hell yea, though I was surprised when they killed off Marie in the movies.

Different country brah, those bookstore names mean nothing to me. Thanks though. The biggest bookstore we have is Whittcoulls, and i think i've seen Fall of Reach in there like, once, when i happened to have no money on me. Can't find them in my local library either, and i can't get bloody Amazon to ship to New Zealand.


AND SAAAAAME.

Oops my bad. Embarassed

I don't suppose there is a Nile nearby? They have Halo books there.

Does that mean you have to be in de Nile before you can get Halo? Razz

Did just read "The Kite Runner" by Khaled Hosseini. It was homework, and I enjoyed having them :)

A sad and dramatic novel that really touched me, I recommend those who like to read about the real life and the dramatic and hard ways of it.


Otherwise, I really enjoy criminalls.


If there is any scandinavian people here, they know what I'm now talking about:

I've read the "Millennium" trilogy by Stieg Larsson.
A prized swedish criminall I highly recommend people to read if it's translated to their language.


Has anyone read the "Hannibal" books? I'm not sure if I wanna start reading them or not.

33 Re: Books on Mon Jan 04, 2010 12:20 am

I don't really read books anymore...

But one of my favorite books is "Alas Babylon". forgot who wrote it... but it was a great Cold War novel.

Temeraire series by Naomi Novik

Gaunts Ghosts series by Dan Abnett (If you only read one, Necropolis. Still his best book to date and one of the only books on my bookshelf thats falling apart from use)

Anita Blake series (up to about book 7) by someone or other. Worth reading for the start of the series, as it's petty interesting, brings new stuff to the supernatural world, and has a complex main character. Unfortunately, as it progresses, the protagonist gets more and more unlikeable, more of a MarySue and the sexual tension that makes some of the story interesting just becomes flat out having sex with anything that moves and is in someway supernatural. It just turns into wish-fulfillment porn. Don't bother reading any more of the books, the series never recovers. After a while the books can top out at around 450 pages, with 20 pages of plot and story development, 5 pages describing her guns, 2 pages for the deus ex machina and 423 pages of various sex. Yes, that may sound tittilating, but it gets boring and pretty damn creepy at times. You end up flicking through the sex scenes to try to find some story.

A Brief History of Time by Steven Hawkings. Everyone needs to read this.

Discworld, by Terry Pratchett. No description needed. Read it.

Hitchhikers Guide, Douglas Adams. Sarts good, gets a little weak towards the end of the series.

Crystal Singer Chronicles (Killashandra) by Anne McCaffrey. Decent take on sci-fi with some nice twists.

Ciaphas Cain - Sandy Mitchell. The series is up to about 7 books now and is a must for anyone who likes sci-fi. He takes the grim darkness of the Warhammer 40k universe and adds a Terry Pratchett twist to it. Absolutely fantastic, funny as hell and packed with references to everything from cricket to aliens to Winnie the Pooh. Masterpieces, and one of the few series that pisses off the typesetters for the Black Library because of all the footnotes.

In that case, may I suggest Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse novels? (aka "The Southern Vampire Mysteries"; re-dubbed "True Blood" after the (also great) TV series that they based on those novels...)

I'm currently reading the (also) seventh book in the series, and while you get some sex here and there (hey, it's a vampire story, after all) it's actually more a whodunnit kinda thing with quite a bit of humour and action thrown in...

np: Contriva - Kapitän (8 Eyes ('96 - '99))

Read Poe then. Ten times better than great, IMO, Howard Philips. Then again, if you're an actress of sorts, then you should be fammiliar with his work. Classics are classics.
