Could you recommend me some books.

Sci-fi and fantasy books would be great.

"A stranger in strange land" by Robert A. Heinlein.

One of my favourite books.

Surprised you didnt have the "Red Dwarf" series in there, hilarious stuff in a similar way to "Hitch hikers guide to the galaxy"

for Sci Fi, Heinlein is great. Either as stated "Stranger in a Strange Land' or his "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress."

You can try George R.R. Martin's Game of Throne series or Steve Erickson's Malazan Book of the Fallen series.

I too am in search of a good sci-fi/adventure story/author. I liked Dune okay. I had trouble getting into The Moon is a Harsh Mistress. Is Stranger in a Strange Land easier to get into?

Right now I am really enjoying re-reading the novelization of The Chronicles of Riddick. Love it. But I figure there must be an author out there who writes this kind of stuff.. he/she just remains to be discovered..

Try to get a hold of Simon R. Greens' Deathstalker Saga, amazing sci-fi adventure saga. Heres the chronology to help you read it in order;

Deathstalker Prelude (not essential to main story, like an add-on)
Deathstalker
Deathstalker Rebellion
Deathstalker War
Deathstalker Honour
Deathstalker Destiny
Deathstalker Legacy
Deathstalker Return
Deathstalker Coda

I know it looks like a lot but it's worth it in my opinion. The characters are memorable and the action is superb.

Jesus Lord, that's a lot! ha... cool, though. Just looked around at it on Amazon. Sounds good. Definitely way too much of a commitment for me right now, cuz I'm about to start school up again, but I might order the first book and get a taste. If I like it, it would certainly keep me busy for a while! I have trouble getting into stuff that's too long and complicated with too many characters and unnecessary details, though. For example, I made a minor effort to read Stephen King's The Stand and he skips around too damn much and the plot just didn't progress fast enough for me. Couldn't get into it. Stephen King can be good, but his writing style can get on my nerves, heh..

Thanks, though, dude. It does sound really good.

No problem, I read these in my teens (the last three only a year ago) and I was just blown away by everything, the adventure, the characters and concepts. And if you think Riddick is one tough dude just wait until you meet the guys in this universe... big grin And they aren't complicated, Simon Green's writing is fluid and expressive and things just zap you straight in the head with the way he builds personalities and situations.

I've read the Stand too and I agree that his writing can be hard to follow. Most notably was when I tried to read 'It' and I couldn't make head nor tails of it. I read 'Cujo' last month though and I was blown away by that so I think he is a bit hit and miss; I prefer Richard Laymon myself, he scares the cr*p out of me!

lol. Yeah, King is best when he keeps it a bit more simple, I think. I've never read Cujo, but I saw the movie, which was excellent. It's a simple story. I have read The Shining, and that was excellent. Haha, cool, I'll have to store Richard Laymon away in my back pocket, too.

Well, anyway, I'm pretty new to sci-fi adventure novels. But I think I'll enjoy it if I find the right thing.

That's par for the course with him.

I had forgotten I made this thread, thanks for bumping it.

Has anyone here read Atlas Shrugged?
