hmm... Here are a couple you might enjoy:
- (one of my favourite pieces of literature - If you haven't read it already, it is definitely worth your time): Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. Heathcliff, an orphan, is raised by Mr Earnshaw as one of his own children. Hindley despises him but wild Cathy becomes his constant companion, and he falls deeply in love with her. When she will not marry him, Heathcliff's terrible vengeance ruins them all - but still his and Cathy's love will not die . . .
A story of doomed love and revenge with a brilliant new introduction - S. E. Hinton.
- (This one is really intriguing and is all based on actual science that is around today!) Prey by Michael Crichton. Blurb on the back of the book: In the Nevada desert, an experiment has gone horribly wrong. A cloud of nanoparticles—micro-robots—has escaped from the laboratory. This cloud is self-sustaining and self-reproducing. It is intelligent and learns from experience. For all practical purposes, it is alive.
It has been programmed as a predator. It is evolving swiftly, becoming more deadly with each passing hour.
Every attempt to destroy it has failed.
And we are the prey.
As fresh as today's headlines, Michael Crichton's most compelling novel yet tells the story of a mechanical plague and the desperate efforts of a handful of scientists to stop it. Drawing on up-to-the-minute scientific fact, Prey takes us into the emerging realms of nanotechnology and artificial distributed intelligence—in a story of breathtaking suspense. Prey is a novel you can't put down.
- Also try All Around The Town by Mary Higgins Clark. Blurb on the back of the book: When Allan Grant is found stabbed to death, Laurie Kenyon’s fingerprints abound…
To cope with the trauma Laurie suffered after she was kidnapped for two years at the age of four, she has developed a multiple personality. The real Laurie has no recollection of the shocking murder.
The key to Laurie’s innocence lies in what happened during her two years of hell. Bic Hawkins, and his wife Opal, Laurie’s abductors, are now prominent television evangelists. Bic has threatened Laurie with death if she talked – a threat he may have to carry out…
This book is absolutely amazing. It is so suspenseful, it absolutely kills you. The characters are also really interesting – the abductors were hippies, and in the book have become preachers for God. Laurie is interesting, as she suffers from a multiple personality disorder, and it’s like she switches from one person to another in the book. She has different names for her different personalities, and each ‘person’ reveals small parts of what happened to her when she was abducted. For example, in the book, her personality of looking after herself is called Kate, and her four-year-old upset self is called Debbie. She switches from person to person when she feels differently, and they each fill out a bit of the puzzle…
Hope I helped!
I've read them all and couldn't put them down!
