I like Agatha Christie she has awesome murder mystery books. Her endings are really the best because they are very unpredictable and their is a lot of suspense. She has like 40 + books! My personal favorites: And then there were none, Endless Night, Sparkling Cyanide and others I don't remember ATM :).

Edit: Glad you thought of this topic then :P...


Oh shoot! Agatha Christie is awesome. My favorite is The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. Her mysteries could be very well considered 'scary.' The way she detailed everything, it's like she's done it before... (T.T")

You're welcome by the way. Ha ha.


LOL I've never heard of it too many! But I'll check it out. So true about her writing though it's like she writes from past experiences... But that's not possible obviously. Rigggghhttt? Also I wanna mention Osamu Tezuka! The god of manga! Never actually read any of his works like Astro Boy. Did you?

Well, during her time, women can get away with murder anytime. Who knows... The Murder of Roger Ackroyd is I think the 6th book she published. Yeah, I know of Osamu Tezuka but I never bothered to know more about him much less his creations.. (T.T") Ha ha.


LOL I'm guessing you read the Twilight series..are you going to read The Host by Stephenie again they say it's even better the Twilight..woah right? then it must be good. I can't wait to read it! LOL this is becoming like a gb rather then a forum. Wrong?

Ha ha, sort of I guess. Well I read the first book, but I don't know, Twilight is everywhere. Stephanie Meyer (I think that's the name?) is an okay novelist for me, just not my cup of tea..But when I get extremely bored, I'll probably take a look.

For real?! Are you even a teen? No jk but seriously I think she's a good story teller and her books got addictive now that I'm done it's not the same as when I was actually reading. In any case The Host is different from Twilight and even better in some peoples cases. I hope I'm one of them, I'm hoping to move on from Twilight!

Last item I checked I was still a teenager. I don't know. I'm not really into authors who write about romance. I'm more into the serious genres where the author screws with the mind.

Bryce Courtenay. In all his books.

Harper Lee was also great in "To Kill a Mockingbird".

I'm also currently liking Isobelle Carmody.

Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov the author/creator of one of the world's greatest and most controversial novels, Lolita and others such as Pale Fire.


I was blown away by the first sentence in the book. His writing style is..beyond words. He created the cultural slang 'Lolita' with the novel he wrote. It was not only what the story was about but also how it was presented to the public and the language used to convey the story into the minds of readers and non-readers. Another of his critically acclaimed novels, Pale Fire, a novel written in the form of poetry with 999 lines has also earned him the title of one the greatest if not the greatest writer of the 20th century if not of all time.

Oooh, Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita was truly spectacular. Humbert and Dolores, if my memory serves me right. That's the only novel I read that he authored. He had such an intricate way of 'word play' and details from what I've seen and read in Lolita.

Fyodor Doestoevsky. I probably killed the spelling his name but meh, you get the idea. Author of Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov. Both books changed my life lol. Both completely changed how I look at things in the world. Opened up my horizons.
