    Some of my favourite pieces of fiction I've read in the last year or so are

    Shogun - James Clavell
    Jurassic Park - Michael Crichton
    The Great Train Robbery - Michael Crichton
    Tarzan of The Apes - Edgar Rice Burroughs

    I'm reading Salem's Lot and American God's atm. Only about 30% into both of them but I think you might like them.

    Sapiens by Yuval Harari is one of the most interesting books I've read.
    Summerland by Rajaniemu is a good spiritual fiction book.
    Hullabaloo in the rain forest by Kieran Desai is a book that's just relaxing to read imo.

    It's gotten pretty darn interesting. Went a completely different way to what I was thinking. I love how fantastical is too. It's out there, but there's still a balance.

    Gaiman's done a good job on juggling the different strands that are going on. I'm curious about a few things that happened earlier on, but I'm sure all will be revealed.

    And I can't think of the reason, but I really like Shadow.

    Guess he mixed you up with someone else

    Read The Great Train Robbery though, thats a real page turner.

    I dunno how Edward Pierce walks, cos his massive balls get in the way.

    You will love the book as a whole (and all the history lessons - you won't believe how interesting all the snippets of history are) for its thrills. but there is one point where you will genuinely think, no matter the man he might be, he's got balls ae large as anyone.

    I've been reading Malazan, Book of the Fallen from Steven Erikson and just finished Book 2 out of 10 (Gardens of the Moon and Deadhouse Gates) and have to say, it's brilliant.

    If this keeps up like this it's probably going to be one of my absolute favourite not books, but literary works period.

    Absolutely. Deadhouse Gates builds upon the established things and makes you go 'WOAH' with how some truths and revelations are executed. It actually managed to make me jump up from my chair, hands holding my head twice. Both times concerning characters and their actions from Gardens of the Moon and their true intent, or what they would make me believe at this point in the story.

    The characters and motivations are also superb, it features a duo in particular whose interactions and actions are just a pleasure to read as the tiny machinations behind their relationship are revealed as you go and constantly make you crave more.

    The damned book leads you on like a animal chasing after a treat on a hook.

    I read a book called The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle. It's about a guy that needs to solve a murder mystery, but every day he is sent back to the beginning of the day in a new host (with all his prior knowledge retained) and he must use each host's unique personalities to solve the murder.
