I loved Tell Me Your Dreams. Btw, can we include "The Twist In The Tale" in the category?

If you haven't yet read Twist In The Tale, log out immediately and go read that book!

As of mystery books, The Da Vinci code is a great read. Apart, I too loved Tell Me Your Dreams.
As of fictions, is there any Ayn Rand fan out here? Well am one!! The Fountainhead rests as my ever favorite novel.

I also think "Da vinci code" is the most famous and mysterious books till today.
Other than that sydney sheldon's lots of books are good and mysterious, but they are not as famous as Da vinci code.
Few books of sydney sheldon, which I like the most.

1.A stranger in the mirror
2.If tomorrow comes
3.The doomsday conspiracy
4.The otherside of midnight

i think DaVinci Code is the most mysterious of Dan Brown's collection , presently am reading his Angel's and Demons which is also very good,
other than these i would recommend sydney sheldon's books like
1 are you afraid of the dark?
2 the sky is falling
3 the blood line

Few days ago, I purchased a book which contains 2 novels by Jaffrey Archer. 1) A twist in a tale (recommended by our good administrator) 2) as the crow flies down.

Has anyone read the second one? If yes, reviews please.

silverscorpion • Jan 19, 2009
I would recommend the following books..

1) Twelve red herrings by Jeffrey Archer
2) All books by Agatha Christie, especially
Murder on the Orient Express, Death on the Nile, etc.
3) The girl with the dragon tattoo ( I read this book recently. It was good. I dont know who's the author)
The davinci code , Angels and Demons , Deception point and Digital fortress are excellent mysterious novels by Dan Brown.
And Alchemist is an excellent book in which there is much more to explore life .
and hi to the Ayn Rand fan out there The Fountain Head and The Atlas Shrugged excellent.

And i have a question guys any novel full of comedy ?
silverscorpion
silverscorpion • Jan 20, 2009
comedy.. you can try P.G.wodehouse. certain characters like Jeeves, Psmith and Mike are famous for their comic acts. Though, it's old british style comedy, with satire and irony mostly. Also the English is archaic with several words out of modern usage. But it'll be fun. Do give it a try.
well guys mine favourate r

its not about the bike-lance armstrong

For Comedy you can read books by P.G. Wodehouse and Gerald Durrell.
The William Series (though they are a children's book), Catch-22, The Great Indian Novel,

Recently I finished reading "The Doomsday Conspiracy" by Sidney Sheldon. What a novel! Its really interesting, smoothly flowing and keeps you engaged.

He's a master storyteller, really !

Is any of his fans out there? Any of his novel recommendation? 😀

the Thin Man series
Sherlock Holmes series

And the teenage detective/mystery stories like Hardy Boys, Famous Five....etc. Fun to read when there is nothing else.

I don't recall Famous five? can you give a brief description?

Anyone else remember the "choose your own adventure" books? I read a ton of those as a kid. That was a great concept that someone made some good money on I bet.
raj87verma88
raj87verma88 • Mar 1, 2009
Yep, they sometimes had 2 characters from different novels working together. eg Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew.
The only drawback was that you kept flipping pages back and forth. The good point was you got multiple stories in one novel.

raj87verma88 • Mar 1, 2009
Famous Five and Secret Seven are a series of detective books for children. Written by Enid Blyton.
I too have heard of Secret Seven need to get them now 😁😁
Read Deception point and Digital Fortress both by Dan Brown.
i have become his fan read all the four of him
Excellent books.

Felt somewhat boaring after reading Sidney Sheldon.
Ha Ha Ha .. .

Dear differential- Its really not a great idea to read Danny(the great Dan Brown) boy's book, after reading romantic Sidney Sheldons.

I stopped reading Sidney when I was in class 12th. If you will try a few suspense thriller novels you will definately like books liks Deception Point, Digital Fortress, DaVinci Code...

-CB
most of the sydneys novels are thriller type
but dans are mostly based on NASA , science codes etc etc ..and in each book they search something..

Not feeling bored but just switched to dans now..

Has anyone read Agatha Christie? especially sleeping murder?
@Differential: I have read only one by Agata Christie it is Evil Under the Sun.
Its good , but not thrilling its just normal flow of mystery .
Just read The Naked Face wow its amazing ..
i got really scared at one moment...
good novel to read 😀

silverscorpion • Jun 13, 2009
Did you know? Naked face was Sidney Sheldon's first novel. It's racy and a very good read. Though not as good as some other books of him, this is indeed a fantastic one for a first book.
silverscorpion
silverscorpion • Jun 13, 2009
And if you want some more of Sidney Sheldon, check out Windmills of the Gods, Rage of Angels, etc. They are very good.
Just read Memories of midnight it is also quite good

Is it? and if I am not mistaken, it's by Sidney Sheldon. He has one more novel on multiple personalities named as Naked Face.
Dude Diff. naked face is not about multiple personalities ..
I have read it very recently..

silverscorpion • Jun 16, 2009
Yup.
naked face is not about multiple personalities. You're mistaken.

And yes, stranger in the mirror is by Sidney Sheldon.

2)books by parry mason

I loved "The Joker"..I don't remember the author's name.. It is a very thick book (black cover with a joker on the front page).

Its about mysterious things happening at a cozy little town. How four friends meet after years and go back to their old town to help put the dark secret to rest, the secret they swore they would not even think about!!
Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys are my all time favourites.

I would like to mention Famous five, Secret Seven as well which were quite good mysteries ................
