I must say, the Dark Tower series by Stephen King is not as popular as his other novels.But, I really think that anyone who wants to experience a rather disturbing kind of horror/adventure/fantasy fiction should give this a try.
Anne Rice may not be the best vampire fiction author but her books have its own unique style,very emotional and gripping.
Hope you guys try reading their books and post comments here

Freakonomics by Stephen Levitt...

it's a pretty easy read... and it is rather interesting to read about reasonable "conventional" wisdom can be wrong...

Blink:The Power of Thinking Without Thinking by Malcolm Gladwell

another wonderful book... a study on "instinct" and "feeling"... and a study on how trying too hard to put thoughts into words can actually 'destroy' the image... how ur "instinct" is not really "instinct" but experience that is so deep that even oneself can't notice it... and many other insightful studies on "thinking" without actually thinking.

  #85 Old 29-10-2005 Default another great book

I read this great novel:

Sophie's World, by Jostein Gaardner.

The book is about a little girl named Sophie, who received a letter from a mysterious guy. The letter contained philosophical question. later, sophie received many more letters containing that taught him the history of Western thinking. Curious, sophie began to search for the guy, and learning philosophy along her adventure.

This novel gave me a main idea of western philosophy. It's by far greater than reading thick philosophy books, and far less boring!

Learn philosophy. Descartes said, "Cogito Ergo Sum" -means "I think, therefore I am." If you don't understand the english version, may be a Malay translation will work. "Aku berpikir, maka aku ada."

Happy reading...

Regards,

Adri

another book by Malcolm Gladwell, The Tipping Point, how little things can make a big difference...(really similar writing style and line of thoughts as his newer book, Blink)

A study on how little things (which isn't noticeable to most ppl most of the times) are actually the reason behind remarkable changes... for instance, why certain trend makes the cut as cool... and how certain books are top sellers, but similar ones aren't... how certain tv programs are better than their counterparts...
