Angels and Demons

by Dan Brown
1189868.jpg Although the sequel to this book, The Da Vinci Code, is immensely popular, I found this book much more intriguing. It is a fast-paced detective drama that combines science, art, religion, and murder. Dan Brown takes you on a roller coaster journey that leaves you yearning for more of his work.


by Michael Crichton

The Godfather

by Mario Puzo
1013278.jpg Its a rare novel that hooks the reader from the very first page, a novel to be savored and absorbed by the author's grim yet masterful prose. Through the pages of this book the reader is introduced to the shadowy world of organized crimemore importantly, to the fiercely interdependent workings of the mafia. Its the greatest novel of all time!

Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less

by Jeffrey Archer

The characters and scenery come alive as the authors take you through a dozen or so years of this woman's lifeof her struggles, her redemption and triumph. It's about love lost and found, and the eternal spirit of a scorned, yet determined woman.
