I read a good Romanian book called The most beloved of all earthlings by Marin Preda. IF you're into philosophy, you won't put the book down, however I don't know if you would find it in Australia. The main character goes through many affairs and adventures, and even in prison, a couple of times. The best 1200 pages I have ever read.

I guess it really depends on what kind of books you like to read. I just finished The Hour I First Knew by Wally Lamb. It's about the shootings at Columbine and the after effects it has on a teacher and his nurse wife and how it ripples to others that are in their lives. It's a very good read. There are a few parts that are a bit slow but it isn't so bad that I wanted to put the book down.

I like anything that keeps me reading... It sounds like a good read, very close to home for some. I'm in Australia but still remember hearing about it on the news 10 years ago.... I find books based on true stories are captivating... Thank you maybebaby

I agree, that it depends on what you LIKE to read. I LIKE to read science fiction, and can strongly recommend Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card, or any of the Ender's Shadow books by him. Also Songmaster by Card. These are mostly about exceptional boys that do exceptional things as children. I really can't recommend these books enough. I also like Mercedes Lackey, just about anything by her, tho I would start with her first Valdamar books, Arrows of the Queen was her first book, she has been doing trilogies in the Valdamar series - then started some "singletons" but start with Arrows. If you don't want to wrap your head around a whole new fantasy would, get her SERRA-ted edge books, about Elves and the how they like to race cars, and help people, especailly children. Then there is Anne McCaffrey's books, I love her PERN books, I would recommend any of them. Her Brain/Brawn books are also excellent - start with The Ship who Sang, for years her only one. But one of my favorite ones of all is Andre Norton's Breed to Come, but then again, I am rather cat crazy...
