I like heroics and thrill .. Naturally Allistair McLean's novels are liked by me.. In each novel he gives such a thrilling story, one never keeps the book incomplete.. Stories look so real, no nonsensical , one loves to read all books by him... If you have not read any, read "The Golden Rendezvous" .. quite a book.

I was a voracious reader, when in college and university. Used to read Charles Dickens for style, Charlotte Bronte for lucidity, Jane Austen for family stuff, Samuel Lawrence for presentation, Charles Lamb for pathos, Christopher Marlowe for fantasy, Dr. Johnson for criticism and William Shakespeare for life's all-time relevance. But, now getting tied up to my profession, I hardly find time to leaf through the pages of even periodicals...!
