What is a good book to read on holiday?
I am looking for the perfect poolside novel to pack in my suitcase for a holiday in the sun. Can anyone recommend a good, gripping read - modern literature preferred.
I'd recommend any of the Dan Brown books, short sentences, gripping plots that are easy to follow and mildly interesting characters. The books are quite long, but they are real page turners, you'll easily complete one in a week.
"What is the What" by Dave Eggers is a very nice one based on the true story of a lost boy of Sudan and the things he has to go through to achieve freedom (I wrote a book review on that one if you want to know more about it). Otherwise, I just finished "Cutting for Stone" by Abraham Verghese, very nice fiction; there is also a book review on that one by another hubber.
Hmm.. if you dont want to get bored I would suggest you try Neil Gaiman's books. I love Stardust and Neverwhere.
"Still Alice" by Lisa Genova is a good read! I read it about a year ago and I plan to pick it up again. It's a story about a college professor being diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's disease and takes you on a journey as how she and her family cope with it. I highly recommend it!
Any Patricia Cornwell books in the Scarpetta serries, they really are gripping and follow on from one to the other.Body of Evidence and Blow fly are ones that will get you going and wanting more.
well that's a pretty good list to be going on with - I shall be making a note of all your suggestions and paying a visit to my local bookshop to see what I can find. thanks for all your answers
Anything by Nicholas Sparks. If you are amiable to fantasy, I HUGELY recommend George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Fire and Ice" series (aka Game of Thrones source)
