what is the last book you read? Would you recommend it? Did you like it? Do you have to enjoy the book to recommend it to someone else who may injoy it more than you did?

The book I just finished was Deal Breaker by Harlan Cohen. It was pretty good. It started out a little slow but ended up being very interesting. Next I am reading Double Cross by James Patterson. All of his books are fantastic,everyone should give them a try.

Oh, I read all sorts of books. I liked the Artemis Fowl series, but you really have to read a few of them to start liking the series, I think.

from a personal view. if you are a teen, the bluford series are the books for you. The Bluford Series elaborate on such issues and subjects such as peer preasure, bullying, gangs, and teenage love. most books are by to authors Paul Langan Anne Lee

If you trace back some of my earlier threads you'll see that my answer to this is almost always the same. One of the best series I've read in along time is by a wonderful authoress named Dianna Gabaldon. The Outlander series is absolutely brilliant. You'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll absolutely love it. It was well researched and so wonderfully written.

I recently finished "A Thousand Splendid Suns" by Khaled Hosseini, which I enjoyed immensely. It was sad and joyful, tragic and full of miracles. It's about a child who grows up, marries and lives life in the Middle Eastern culture. I plan to read his first book, "The Kite Runner", too. I can't believe a man could write so accurately and compassionately about a woman from her point of view. Yes, I have to enjoy a book to recommend it. I often find that reviews will trash a book I like and rave about books that aren't worth the paper they're printed on. Same with movies--if the critics hate it that's practically a guarantee that it'll be one that I love!

'The Kite Runner', definitely 'The Kite Runner' by Khaled Hosseini - it's very well written and it just has a bit of everything without being too much: friendship, betrayal, war, building a new life in a foreign country, loss, grief and doing the right thing (better late than never). It's a very moving book - it still lives in me and I finished it months ago.

I think it all depends on what type of books you like, to be recommended something. However, the last book I read was Lucky by Alice Sebold, and it was amazing. I liked her other book The Lovely Bones better, but since Lucky's a true story reminiscing her story it was more touching I thought. I seriously love this book, and The Lovely Bones, too, and would recommend both of them to anyone who likes sentimental books that will seriously touch you. :]
