    Have you read all the Robin Cook? Micheal Crichton? Patricia Cornwell?

    Don't ask me, I read trash.

    I particularly enjoy true crime books.... total disgusting, voyeuristic, sensational crap. I love it.

    My husband just started reading Tom Clancy's new book, Red Rabbit. He seems to be have mixed reviews on the book. Says is enjoying it but his other books have been better.

    Try any of the mysteries by Randy Wayne White. Good adventure, interesting main character through all of them and well written - fun!
    Have other suggestions that were enjoyed by various young males - my sons - do you ever read any fantasy or scifi? If so, The Chronicles of Amber is a good starting point.

    Very light, funny (may be a Brittish sence of humour LOL), Science fantacy. Not sure if you can get in the US but worth a try.

    "The Colour or Magic" is the first disk world book but doesnt really matter where you start they are linked but can read in any order no probs (my fave is "Hogfather" I even love kis kids books too.

    The other book would have to be "Raders of the lost carpark" by Robert Rankin.

    I got a good book called Unveiling Islam so I could better understand the Peaceloving People of Islam. The radicals I can understand without a book. I just wanted to fully understand the religion.

    I also read The Watermark.......was a short story. Very different....

    Thanks for posting this topic.....

    You'd probably like James Patterson, or even Sidney Sheldon... his are easier reads... I started reading Sheldon in high school...
