I just remembered another book by Roald Dahl that was turned into a movie: "Charlie and the chocolate factory" starring Johnny Depp who also starred in "Pirates of the Caribbean". Yakamashii, did you read that one too?|
Talking of kids' books, anyone here remember the Enid Blyton series? As a child, I thought they were great.
hooiluangoh, I thought 'The Da Vinci Code' was a great book. Totally absorbing, and "unputdownable".
The story has been developed so cleverly that at every moment you are asking, "What happens next?", and you just can't put down the book. And, the author adds a nice human touch at the end, with the unexpected reunion.
If you like adventure stories, Wilbur Smith has written some wonderful stuff. His "Ballantyne" series of novels is based in Africa. The first one in this series in particular, "A falcon flies", is a must-read. And also, "The leopard hunts in darkness" in the same series.
If you like contemporary non fiction, the Australian writer Bill Bryson has written some memorable stuff . "A brief history of nearly everything" talks about scientific discoveries and how they came about, and is particularly suitable for people who are not into science.
