    There are few really nice Russian authors who writes fiction. I can recommend Sergey Lukyanenko with his series of Night Watch/Day Watch/The Twilight Watch/Last Watch. Awesome books. They are available on Amazon translated to English. Those are the most twisted and interesting fiction books I've read so far. There are also movies based on those books, but skip those.
    I have seen Night Watch and really enjoyed it.Didnt now it was a series of novels.I will need to hunt them down now.

    I can't read fiction. The last work I read was Murakami's 1Q84. All 1318 pages. I'll regret the time I spent slogging through that when I'm on my deathbed.
    Lately I've been reading mostly late 19th early 20th century world history & political satire. Fascinating stuff.

    Trust me, books are 10 times better. One good thing about this series — all the books are great, not only first 1 or 2 and they all continue one single story.

    Neil Stephenson's 'The Baroque Cycle' is my favorite ever.

    What Follet book would you read first?

    David Weber The Dahak series (4 books) is really good.

    Terry Brooks who is well know for his Shannara series, has a great series called Word and Void. I tried to re read the Shannara books but found them to not stand up. His writing has really approved!

    Apart from the cookbooks and wine books, I like to read WWII History and fiction by authors such as James Lee Burke, James Ellroy, W.E.B. Griffin, Stephen Hunter and Ian Rankin.

    I finally found a copy of Pinball 1973 that wasn't overly expensive.

    These are just a couple of names that I can remember off the top of my head.
    Kingkiller chronicles is awesome. Can't wait for the 3rd book.

    I read a lot of fantasy. George R R Martin, Patrick Rothfuss, Terry Brooks, Jim butcher, David eddings, China mieville and Robert Jordan are among my favorites.

    I also read cookbooks when I can.
