Novels

I'm starting a new thread for Novels !

Last book that I really enjoyed reading was Da Vinci Code. I think the author could have done a better job with the last few pages of book :roll: What is your opinion?

Currently I am reading "What they don't teach at Harward Business School" 😛

"What they.." is not a novel 😛 . I've already read that book and I agree with it.

I'm a Jeffery Archer fan and love reading Dan Brown. Any reviews on 'Da Vinci Code'?

I second to that. The end could have been much better. I don't know how many of us know that some bollywod director is making a movie based on '5 point someone'.

Anyway, both 5. someone & 1 night @ call center did a fantastic job for Rupa publishing Co. 😁

P.S:
Anyone wants to comment on Ayn Rands' "The Fountainhead" ? Or objectivism in general? 😀

sidney my way these days....

have started my journey of reading novels with chetan bhagat... five point someone is a good to start novel and a must-read for all the youngsters out there... but after two pieces by him... switched to sidney sheldon.... quite a popular name in the readers' world... have went thru around 4 of his scripts.... the best one outta them is probably ' tell me yer dreams'.... will soon be starting with the very famous... "da vinci code".....

Hi,
Have anyone read Michael Crichton books? Jurassic park, The lost world, etc? He's a fantastic sci-fi writer. 'Prey' is a good one. Also check out 'Next'. It's a great book on dangers of bio enginering and DNA manipulations.

Agree with you Crazyboy and if u like it, u can also read "a thousand splendid suns" by the same author. Its also a good novel to read.

Currently am reading "Midnight's Children" by Salman Rushdie!

I am reading The Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand these days! Her previous novel, The Fountain Head rests as one of my favorite novels. So thought of starting with this one and am finding it better! :smile:

Try "The andromeda strain" by Michael Crichton. A great sci-fi book.

And anybody tried the recent booker prize winner "The White Tiger"? Any reviews? I read it and personally, I dont find anything so special in it to be worthy of a booker..

Currently am reading "Midnight's Children" by Salman Rushdie!
hey, I'm also currently reading "Midnight's children".
