Any of the "Discworld" series by Terry Pratchett, very funny, life on the Discworld features witches,wizards,dwarves and the Watch,who are the main city's police force etc..All the old "classics" are still worth a go, Sherlock Holmes,The Invisible Man, Kidnapped,The Man In The Iron Mask..The Little World Of Don Camillo,by the Italian author Giovanni Guareschi are excellent and overlooked everywhere, good
fun,but with subtle morals! Also, for more "sword and sorcery" nonsense,you can't beat The Swords Of Lankhmar" series, about the exploits of a thief and a barbarian adventurer, by Fritz Leiber,and pretty much anything by Umberto Eco,but they can be heavy going...Have fun..

It depends on your choices. We cant just say Dan Brown gives you the best or J.K. Rowling is the best.. For example there are people out there, who dont even like Sidney Sheldon. If you are searching for an inspirational novel, I'd suggest "Alchemist" by Poelo Coehlo.. Davinci Code is a good option for information seekers. Jurassic PArk by Michael Crichton is a good novel.. The list goes endles.. Be specific in the question and answer will be given by someone..

Fiction can be of many kinds,it depends upon your taste actually.science fiction is most popular in this era."The Time Machine" by H.G.Wells & Mary Shelly`s "Frankenstein" are classic science fiction.if your into imaginative fiction then the Harry Potter series is a good choice or if you prefer mystery fiction then Arthur Conan Doyle`s "The Lost World" or "the adventures of Sherlock Holmes" is good.in my opinion read Holmes is a daring adventure with a great sense of mystery and humour.

If you dont mind reading thic books, Sidney Sheldon, Dan Brown, Daniel Steel and Robin Cook are pretty good options.
Harry Potter is also an all time favourite, if you like reading Fantacy / Magic stuff. Believe me...it in not a children's book.
