Good book.
I basically stick to the same few authors..


Nelson Demille-
Jeffery Archer
Michael Connelly
Vince Flynn -every once in a while
Daniel Silva-also here and there
John Grisham (older work is much better)
and David Baldacci whose books I like pretty consistently.

Grisham and Baldacci- I read every book they write.
love baldacci also a fan of Silva and Flynn

Haven't read them in a while...
I'd say

1. Angels and Demons
2. The Da Vinci Code
3. Digital Fortress
4. Deception Point
5. The Lost Symbol

 I didn't read Deception Point. Though I would put Digital Fortress after The Da Vinci code. The lost symbol would def go last, seems like he's past his prime.

Beach music is very good, even better is Lords of Discipline. Pat Conroy is a real quality writer.

Might be good.
Although if you're reading that, you should definitely read this classic.

Has anyone here ever read Viktor Frankl's 'Man's Search for Meaning'?
