Do you have a favourite author, and can you recommend a good novel?


I am always on the lookout for a good read, I like the English classics such as Thomas Hardy and Laurie Lee, and also some modern novellists like Haruki Murakami and Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Do you have any recommendations?

    CuAllaidh - I have read The Hobbit, LOTR and the Time Traveller's Wife. Like you say about the last one, the movie was rubbish, but I loved the book.

    I've heard of John Grisham, but not the other author, and I haven't read any of these. Thanks for the ideas.

    Does that translate to "The Shadow of the Wind" - if so I have read the English translation, and I really enjoyed it. I read it shortly after visiting Barcelona, where it is set, which really helped to set the scene.
