if you're into suspense and espionage and stuff like that, you could try novels written by Tom Clancey and Robert Ludlum. personally i like Ludlum more (writer of the book-turned-movies Bourne series.). he can sure write like you're in the middle of the action yourself. now if you want some sci-fi, i'd suggest you read Ray Bradbury, and start with his most famous works The Martian Chronicles and Farenheit-something (hehe). he's really good, and he's also my favorite author.

and also, CS lewis is good. (try reading 'Til We Have Faces') and Margaret Atwood. im not sure if she wrote Oryx and Crake, but the book is really good. try reading it too.

if you have two months i recommend the Lord of the Ring series by JRR Tolkien, its a fantastic series dealing with hobbits, elves, dwarves, wizards, men, orcs all after a magic ring

I was wondering on what kind of novels you are interested in...anything specific? If you are looking for inspirational ones that involve family ties, then I suggest novels by Luanne Rice--her books are a great read, such as Firefly Beach, Cloud Nine, Safe Harbor... if you are more of the mystery noevl type, books by Sue Grafton are also good, such as A is for Alibi, D is for Deadbeat, K is for Killer (& I think it's pretty cool how she titles her novels)...have a great read! =)

Anything by Jane Austen or the brontes are excellent stories, although quite heavy reading. If you want something more escapist and surreal i would recomend Christopher Brookmyre or Ian Banks.

You better buy The Monk who sold his Ferrari. Its an awesome book..to interest you further, i wont tell the storyline. Anyway, its worth buying. The author is Robin Sharma.

One of my favorite novels ever is a book called Beneath A Marble Sky by John Shor. It's a historical fiction about the building of the Taj Mahal. It's an amazing story!!!!
