Books........

Found 6th Feb 2011
Can anyone recommend me some decent books? I've got a £20 Waterstones voucher but have no idea what to spend it on.

I tend to read alot of autobiographies (just finished John Hartson, got Alan Sugar next), or crime type fiction. I've read the Stieg Larsson books, quite like Val McDermid etc.

All suggestions welcome!

Like Barky says James Patterson is good and Ive heard Martina Cole is also good

James Patterson alex cross series is also good

If you liked the dragon trilogy - read Jo Nesbo

great stuff
Conn Iggulden - if you like Genghis Khan , or Roman Legions
also to do with Rome - Ben Kane, Anthony Riches, Simon Scarrow - all very good books !

already mentioned - James Patterson - Alex Cross novels...
Tom Clancy - Jack Ryan novels
Bernard Cornwell - Sharpe
The millienium trilogy.
The First Law series by Joe Abercrombie.......simply incredible! (The Blade Itself is the 1st book).

Just look at those covers (yes you can safely judge these books by their covers; they're that good lol)

Ask in the store - if you give them an idea of what you like they'll suggest some titles for you.
