Karan’s bestseller’s list

 

1) Artemis Fowl -> The only children’s book which has impressed me more than the Harry Potter series.

2) The Harry Potter series -> Of course.

3) Tell me your dreams -> Sidney Sheldon, he’s undoubtedly the master of suspense. Thrill, blood, sex, he’s got it all.

4) The Pelican Brief -> John Grisham… the master of pieces on law.

5) First Among Equals -> Jeffrey Archer. British to the T.

6) The Janson Directive-> Robert Ludlam. A perfect page turner.

7) Why men lie and women cry? -> I always had this problem of how to communicate with gals, how and why they think etc until I came across this. An amazing piece.

8) Five Point Someone -> Chetan Bhagat. Do I need to say anything??

9) Airport-> Arthur Hailey. What’s special about him is the additional information he gives besides the main plot.

10) Angels and Demons-> Dan Brown. He’s awesome maan.. read it to believe it

11) Who Moved My Cheese-> Dr.Spencer Johnson. My perception towards a lot of things changed with this 50-page book.

 

PS: The books are in no particular order.

nice collection 🙂
few more suggestions: read Michael Crichton if you are into science fiction. try Samit Basu’s Gameworld Trilogy – amazing stuff …
and of course the whole Sherlock Holmes series ….

a few comments 😛

Jeffrey Archer is british and that book ‘First among equals’ is also abt british parliament .. where did America come in??

Isnt Robert Ludlum’s Bourne Identity better? U read it yet .. if not .. wat u waiting for 😛

and abt ur choice 8. I felt that ‘5. someone’ was one of the worst books that I read 😀 … though not as worse as his next one, the call center thing .. he starts off well enough .. but then plunges into the depths of garbage as the book moves on … 😀

though i haven’t read many books after coming here…. i am at least happy that i read five from your list 🙂

btw i liked your template…. especially the picture of the night sky with full moon in it.

Looks like loads of book lovers in town.I do not really appreciate Chetan Bhagat’s literary works so far but agree with you on Sidney Sheldon.Jeffrey Archer is good too.You should read a few classics though , and please dont miss out Oscar Wilde.His short stories can make anyone an ardent book reader.
