What Novels Do You Suggest?

Postby shapp » Thu Oct 11, 2012 5:48 pm

I am a huge fan of Neil Gaiman (American Gods, Neverwhere, etc...), China Mieville (Perdido Street Station, The Scar, etc...), Harry Potter, Noise, Brains a Zombie Memoir, contemperary fantasy, and modern horror. I'm looking for something new to get into that might be some fun reads. By the by, I don't really like LOTR type fantasy and such as that though.

Help me out my peoples! =D

Hey buddy,
I couldn't recomend the MHI books any more positively. Monster Hunter International and the 3 that follow. The fourth, being brand new last month. Monsters, badasses and humor, all written by a gun nut, Larry Correia. I couldn't put them down. I think they just released a giant book with the first 3 all in one.

The Hunger Games books are very good. Another good book, though it's more of an everyday life based book(not really adventure, fantasy, sci-fi, etc) is Deadline by Chris Crutcher. it's about a kid in high school(just starting senior year) and he finds out he has a year to live. So, he decides to do everything he's been meaning to do and everything he's ever wanted to do. Extraordinary book, excellent writing, very smart, solid story, very humorous, and my only warning would be strong language(if that offends you at all) and there's some fairly heavy material(as in really serious life drama sort of stuff). It is such an amazing book though. don't know if you'd be interested or not, but it's my favorite book.
