The last book I read was by Sherrilyn Kenyon, Dream Chaser. It was magnificent. She has a gift with words. She actually has a bit of a cult following. Her stories all center around the world of Gods, Goddesses, DemiGods, Demons and us humans in our world. She weaves terror, triumph and passion into her stories like nobody's business. From page 1 to 369, I was hooked! I read it in under 24 hours (over the span of 2 days) and had to force myself to put it down for things like bathroom breaks, eating and sleep! LOL! She is a fantastic author and I am embroiled in another of her books, Devil May Cry. I can't wait to find out how it ends!

I read that one! And The Da Vinci Code! I loved them both. What did you think about Angels and Demons? Did you read The Da Vinci Code too? If so, what did you think of that one?

Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk. I loved it. This was my first book by him. If you loved the movie Fight Club, you sure will love this book. It's crazy, full of eccentric characters and has just like Fight Club a twist in the ending. If you want a light fast read I recommend this. I really need to read more btw. This was the first book I have read in years :\

I haven't gotten around to reading Invisible Monsters, it's still on my list to read. But if you like Chuck P then I suggest you read Rant. It's has a bit of a sci/fi flair involving time travel, but it's odd and interesting and good. It will keep you reading til the end.

Hi there. The last book that I read was The golden compass. A very good one, much better than the movie (but the movie is really good too). Its a trilogy called "His Dark Materials". I would say that it's basically about God and us, the humans. The trilogy is composed by three books (in the order): The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass. I recomend them, since they are a very very good literature.

The last book I read was by Maeve Binchey and is titled "Whitethorn Woods." This book is a bout a small Irish town and how each of the people's lives are affected by a road that might be built through their woods. In the center of the woods is a wishing well that is said to make your wish come true. It's more a colection of short stories than one book but it was a very nice read. I ish she had turned each of the character's lives into seperate books but I know that would take years! I suggest checking out any of her books as the stories she weaves about her characters lives are so amazing.

Sorry, i dont have a habit of reading that level of book regularly. Infact i am a not at all a regular book reader. I use to read the weekly, when ever i use to travel in the public transport. And i use to read the daily news papers, in the business column, the market stratagy ups and downs.. etc.. and other related matters. Even my childhood days onwards i am not a reader, even i have not read any of the comix in my childhood..

The last book I read was "Spirits in the Wires" by Charles de Lint. It was my.. third time reading it I think and every time I find a new layer to his exquisite fiction. For all of you who haven't heard of Charles de Lint, he in a Canadian Science Fiction author who writes very good, but very bizarre stories involving technology ie. computers, mixed with fantasy elements. There isn't much I can say about the book that would make sense to anyone that hasn't read it - but it is a terrific read, and I recommend that anyone who enjoys SF/Fantasy read it post haste!
