'Ubik' by Philip ****. My boyfriend said it was the best science fiction book he has ever read. And he's not easily impressed.. :)
Dean Koontz is a good read. I've read almost all of his books and a good one to start off with is, Lightning.
The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers
Origins of Species<br />
Deception Point<br />
The Bible/theQuaran<br />
Davinci Codes<br />
Charlie and the Chocolate factory
Whats wrong with Dan Brown. They are good books. They are all fiction, the stories are not real...
Well ok. I personally really loved the writing style, but everyone has their own taste.
haruki murakami should be a good read. go for "kafka on the shore".
You'll love Orson Scott Card's collection of short stories.... "Maps in a Mirror."
