    I also love to read books.I read comics,detective romantic and lyrical books.I love to read the novel of Charles Dickens and now I am reading Great Expectation of Charles Dickens.


    I too like Charles Dickens a lot ,his Great expectations is a classic and we had it for our English non detail in pre university.I like all his works and my favorites are Pickwick papers and A tale of two cities..


    I too like A tale of two cities and The Great Expectations. In fact, some of the characters from this two novels are so unforgettable. I am reminded of Madame Defarge whenever I see anyone knitting. Like wise, cobwebs remind me of Miss Havison.


    Yes thats true, in fact I remember that Agatha Christie's has borrowed the two characters in a couple of her novels , cant remember which ones...Dickens is an institution !

    I tried reading sulman rushidie and yes his writing is complex so left it between.. i am reading shiva triology.. Its a must read...


    That is what most of the people say. :huh:


    ha haa.. true... but i'll get back to him soon. His satanic verses are on my list due to which there is fatua issues on his name to be executed....


    I tried going through the book review as to what was in the book that it was condemned so much. I have to admit that I even found the review complex. :laugh: Now that gives me a hint of the complexity inside the book. :silly:

    Live in the present :)

    I have only read Rushdie's Midnight's Children and I enjoyed reading it, although sometimes his writing can become very difficult to understand.

    I have got hooked on to John Grisham and have been reading one after the other of his novels.Finished with The runaway Jury,The Firm and The Testament , now reading The Litigators ...I think he is one of the best writers in the legal thrillers category !


    John Grisham is definitely one of the best writers. Though I have read only few of the novels written by him like The painted house, The Testament, The associates etc I enjoyed reading them. Incidentally, The Painted house is not related to the legal stuff


    I have read them all except The Painted House! is it good?


    Same here, I too have not read The painted house and since now Jabeen says it is not legal stuff I am all the more curious to know about it..and Kalyani I have read both the ones you mentioned ( A time to Kill and The Client ) and I agree that they were both excellent books... :) Yesterday I sat up until 2 Am reading The Litigators..


    They both belong in my favorites list. Grisham's Bleachers was also good and also was not related to legal stuff!

    I have read his Satanic verses and Midnight's children and felt that he is overrated as a writer.If not for the controversy Satanic verses would never have become so popular nor made him so rich...It is banned in India !

    No problem Usha!! :) It was only because of the controversy he became so famous, otherwise I think there are many other writers who deserve that attention more than him!

    I too feel the same, in fact the fundamentalists though issued a fatwa against have actually helped him financially and also gain a celebrity status,his book which was earlier priced much lower in UK, was hiked up the moment India and the Muslim countries banned the book..
