    The Complete Sherlock Holmes - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

    If you've ever been put off reading these books because you found the old 'traditional' stiff lipped Holmes a bit boring, reconsider as he's far closer to Robert Downey Jnr.'s character.

    Diary of Anne Frank

    Flippin depressing situation she was in but she writes with such a positive outlook. Mad to think her and the 7 other people didn't go out side for 2 years. Haven't got there yet but I know it has a kak ending.

    O_o I can tell that it's got a major story to relish, but I just have to get used to Robert Jordan's writing style... That guy loves his adjectives

    You should try Gardens of the Moon from the Malazan book of the dead. Steven Erikson struggled to get published in America at first because publishers told him it was too complicated for Americans.

    I'll remember to try that 1. It's interesting how styles of writing vary from one author to the next.

    Awesome series. I still waiting for the last book (14). Looks like it's due in Jan. Such a pity that Robert Jordan died before he could finish the series, but so far Brandon Sanderson has done a good job of picking up the story at least.
