Here's a list of my favorite authors; can't really decide which are my
top 5 books:

- Douglas Adams - HHGTTG
- Terry Pratchett - Discworld Series
- CS Lewis - Chronicles Of Narnia and others
- Neil Gaiman - Sandman series
- Roald Dahl - Short Stories
- JKR - Harry Potter books (Duh!)

Am a huge fan of the works of Bill Watterson. Aah, how can I forget
Scott Adams? I also read Asterix and Tintin comics :-)

Cheers

Two more to add to the list:

1. Art of War: Sun Tzu – awareness about the tactics and strategy in a war, if you use, its majestic.

2. The monk who sold his Ferrari: Robin Sharma - A nice read. Takes you through a journey with emphasis on one’s own actual self and the materialistic world.

Finished reading The Complete Yes Prime Minister Series
Currently reading Umberto Eco's Foucault's Pendulum.
Former gives a nice view into the tussle between the bureaucracy and the politicians in the British parliament. Wonder how closely that resembles the scene in our country.
Latter is kinda difficult to chew. Need to read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foucaul...lum_%28book%29
end to end first...

Same for me, Da Vinci Code is really an interesting book. Although I didn't read it - I listened to it (audio book). Took 14 hours to listen it completely (over 1 week time period)

Just finished reading Angels & Demons by Dan Brown. Starts off pretty well. Narrative remains fast paced and then somewhere in the middle becomes a bit monotonous. Then again catches up pace in the end and in fact throws up a few nice surprises. And oh, yes! Has a true hindi filmi type stunt at the end. It has to be read to feel flummoxed. Who says only the bollywood walahs can dream up those cow jumps over the moon scenes
