Default Just finished Harlan Coben - The Woods

brilliant as usual, the only sad part about it ia I now have to wait a year before his next book is out.

(Anything by Harlan Coben is brilliant, especially 'Tell No One'.

Good shout. He's my favourite 'trashy mystery crime fiction etc' writer. Always a good twist in there and very difficult to work it out too.

Tell No One and No Second Chance are his best books. Gone For Good is also good.

I managed to work out half of his latest before before the end, that is partly down to me knowing all his stuff and getting to know the way he thinks. There was still plenty of great twists in it though.

8/10 (as far as mass market thrillers go anyway).

Seconded. Ditto Robert Crais and Michael Connelly.

Just reading number9dream by David Mitchell after reading his 3 others. Cant make my mind up about him. Enjoyed them all, but...

Yeah, as you get to know his style you realise that he doesn't introduce characters for no reason and he doesn't provide information unless it's meaningful so I spotted a twist in the fourth book I read of his. Have you read any of the Myron Bolitar novels? They're not quite as good but still entertaining. A detective/Harvard graduate/lawyer/basketball player/hardman. Oh I almost forgot...sports agent.

I wasn't that impressed with Connelly. They were good reads of course, but I didn't find him as good as Coben.

Aye I've read all of the Bolitar books. They were his first books so he is obviously going to improve with time, all them were enjoyable.

I hear they want to make Deal Breaker into a film

(it has to be Vince Vaughan for Myron surely?)

although no details have been announced yet, IMDB has in down for 2008 and 'in progress;.

I am now deciding between,

Tolkein - The Childredn of Hurin (saving for my holiday though I think)
Dean Koontz - The Face (Another holiday book).
Michael Marshall - The Intruders
David Hewson - The Promised Land

or

Back to The Dark Tower, I'm up to book 4 (Wizard & Glass) but the sheer size of it is rather daunting.
