Must Read Novels, pls!
« on: December 24, 2007, 05:41:32 PM »
Hi there,

Just joined this forum very recent. Its very nice to be, a parly. Would you pls help me by saying which novel is your favourite and what novel would you recomend me to read. I read by what I can call accident only.

Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if he or she were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness, and understanding you can muster, and do so with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.

Thanks

I'd recommend you read Robert Ludlum's Bourne Identity..Makes a great read.

Also read all the Harry Potter series.

Yup! You have got it Gogannaka but the chief Moderator (Muhsin) missed it slightly. Thanks.

Well...a bit elaboration; I many times only get access to books through my brother when he buys, then I take and read. But I barely go to bookshop to buy it. Thats what I, in short, mean by 'accident'.

And to you all; whenever you read any book from now henceforth that you feel is worth recomended, pls tell me or us here. Please do it!

And thanks to you all. I love you!

GoodFella,

Let me put your question in simple term as; any good book that you might not have heard of it and you like to and read it? Think you mean something like this. Okay, we'll keep informing/updating you about that whenever I read one. Now go read those given by Goga and start. Very nice ones they are though I have never still read any of Harry Poter's series books. Wish to have one borrowed from our library as soon as we resume Feb.

Thanks for the approach.

Thanks to you Muhsin and Gogannaka. Keep it up! And I'll look for these as the beginning.

goodfella welcome, id recommend u read john grisham's doomsday conspiracy(i really enjoyed it) and a true life story titled a million thousand pieces by james frey, its an account of the struggles of a drug addict in a rehab facility, very inspiring, though there were accusations of embellishment but its very interesting. happy reading!

Thanks man and Congratulations Muhsin, it is very honourable being the moderator.

There is another book I read, its like the Asian Harry Potter but its probably a better story. It comes in four wonderful books. Its called Tales of the Otori, by Lian Hearn. Its absolutely amazing u guys should check it out.

The fun thing about reading books and shearing them is that you let others feel the same feeling as u did when u read it. I think its very generous to the souls...

You people are really keeping this sub-forum a better place.

To Ibro2g and ladymerciful,

Many of the books you are recomending aren't available here in Africa, I think. Only one among the books you have written I heared of, not even read, thats James Patterson's Spider. Oh...that also of Zainab Al-Ghazzali could be available but I haven't read it.

Is there any Harry Potter refer to as Asian? Tell me more about it.

Thanks and keep them coming.

Thanks man. Honestly I do not know of thier availability cuz I barely buy them. But I know friends who read really nice books.
Tales of the Otori will certainly fascinate u, the newyork times said it is an Asian(japanese) form of Harry Potter and even better than Harry Potter in the book review. But take a look at this first
http://www.theotori.com/BookGeneral/author.asp

http://www.theotori.com/BookFour/reviews.asp


           Tales of the Otori, across the Nightingale floor (my review)
The story is about one boy who grew up with his mother, step father and step sisters in another tribe never really knowing his father who is dead. The tribe he lived with where soon annihilated by a war lord who hated thier beliefs that defy him. He was the sole survivor, thanks to his skills and a Noble man, Otori Shigeru. Soon his skills became priceless as only him can walk across the nightingale floor for salvation and revenge and more. His complicated identity becomes a national intrique. And the path led him to love a woman of intense beauty, and any man who so desires her, suffers an unusual death.
Safety and Peace
