    I really enjoyed "State of Fear" by Michael Crichton. I've read all of his books, but State of Fear and Timeline were probably my favorites. It takes a little bit to get into the actual storyline of his books, but he does a fantastic job of giving the details early on. Worth giving it a chance, IMO.

    i read a fair amount... no real rhyme or reason to my selections... pretty much when i see or hear about something that looks interesting ill buy it and read it

    currently working my way through the works of Hunter S Thompson... just finished "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas"... next will likely check out "Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72"... or "Hells Angels"

    whatever you do don't read the rum diaries. I thought because it was a hunter s thompson book it would be good, but it's not. It's brutally slow

    I'd do that if I didn't want to try to retain some of the shit I read. lol

    I liked to take my time and read a 1/2 to a full chapter a day, then take a few days from reading and just think about what I just read and recall it without having to read it again.

    This is probably why I did so bad in school, I'd read it once quickly and couldn't recall much of anything. lol

    I need to get off late night MW2 and get upstairs and read myself to sleep more though. I enjoyed that last fall a lot.

    Anyone here ever read any of the Robert Ludlum novels? I've read quite a few of his books.
