    Read Odd thomas,Forever odd and Brother Odd by Dean Koontz.These books are about Odd Thomas who see dead people and is compelled to solve crimes.

    Brother Odd by Dean Koontz is the third book in his Odd Thomas series. Poor Odd has been through so much in the last couple of years. He lost Stormy, the love of his life, he's given up his job and his home to move into seclusion at a California mountainside monastery in hopes that his "gift" for seeing the dead won't be an issue up there. Instead he finds a poltergeist monk and evil spirits gathering around the young disabled children the monks (and nuns) care for. Odd knows that trouble is coming, and as usual he's the only one to recognize it.Can Odd mitigate the coming cataclysm? Of course he can, despite the arrival of murderous bone creatures and grim Death itself, for the monks include quite a contingent of reformed martial sinners, most memorably Brother Knuckles, formerly of the New Jersey Mob, and another guest, a mysterious Russian librarian from Indianapolis, who is more and different than Odd thinks he is.

    The Vivero letter by Desmond Bagley.Jeremy Wheale's well-ordered life is torn apart when his brother is murdered by a mob hit man, whose bait was a family heirloom - a sixteenth-century gold tray. The trail takes Wheale from Devon to Mexico and the wild tropical rain forests of Yucatan. In dense jungle, he helps two archaeologists locate the rest of a fabled hoard of gold - treasure from Uaxuanoc, the centuries-old lost city of the Mayas. But his brother's enemies are on Wheale's trail, and with them are the Chicleros, a vicious band of convict mercenaries.

    Dresden file book series by Jim Butcher.There are 8 books in the series beginning with stormfront.Each novel in the series is told from the fictional perspective of Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden (named by his father after Harry Houdini, Harry Blackstone, Sr., and David Copperfield). Dresden is the only professional wizard in modern-day Chicago (he is in the phone book, under "Wizards").In the world of The Dresden Files, magic is real, along with vampires, demons, spirits, faeries, werewolves, and more. The general public that Harry Dresden works to protect does not believe in magic or the large array of dark forces which regularly conspire against them. This makes it tough for Harry to get by as a working wizard and private eye.He is aided by Bob,a talking skull.Karrin Murphy-a police officer and Thomas-a white court vampire.

    Scaramouche by Rafael Sabatini.When his best friend, a young clergyman, is killed in a mockery of a duel by an arrogant noble, just to quiet his eloquent expressions of democratic ideals, Andre-Louis Moreau vows revenge. From that point, through meteoric careers as a consummate actor and scenario writer, then as a fencing master, and finally a politician, the brilliant Moreau keeps thwarting the aims of the aristocratic Marquis de la Tour d'Azyr. However, the nobleman causes pain to Moreau as well, and the time must come when the two will meet to settle their enmity once and for all. You are not likely to guess how their confrontation finally turns out. Set against the backdrop of the French Revolution, this swashbuckling novel is exciting throughout, and it presents one of the most dashing heroes in fiction, a man who can fight equally well with his mind, his mouth, his pen, and his sword, a man who stirs up events wherever he goes.

    Yes, Orson Scott Card is quite the remarkable author. I own Enders Game, but havn't read it yet. Seventh Son and his contributation to the Elements of Fiction Writing series.

    My long loved author at this point in time is Cornelia Funke. I was absolutely stunned with her work of Inkheart. That is a trilogy I believe. Also The Theif Lord was a great adventure through the streets of Venice! I'd highly reccomend anything with her name on it!

    One of my all time favorite books is The Catcher in the Rye. Basically it's about a teenage boy that struggles with the ideas that society has about a number of important issues including peer pressure, sexuality, and human relationships. It is sort of the kind of book where you both want to yell at the main character and mother him all at the same time. I recommend it to anyone and everyone.

    The best book I have ever read is Gone Too Far by Suzanne Brockmann. I love her writing and ideas. I immediately and practically automatically fall in love with her Navy SEALs. <3 I believe her most recent series is TS Inc. It completely amazes me how she is able to link nearly all of her books together. I mean there's some part of one book that makes so much sense in the next.

    Middlemarch by George Eliot follows the lives of different people in the same small town - it is a very good read.
