pls recommend it to me


The letters series, M is for Malice, G is for Gumshoe, always a murder always a mystery, enjoyable series, probably on the bargain book shelves by now.
The author is Sue Grafton, very enjoyable series. Great for the female reader as well.

Can someone recommend me a Novel without sexual situations and more on the reality. I don't like Fantasy Novels that much.

You might also enjoy reading Atlas Shrugged, By Ayn Rand, there is ONE sex scene in it, but it's rather needed in the book if you ask me..

GREAT book. (my all time favorite book btw)


Edit: OH, and if you like sci fi, you might enjoy the dragonriders of pern series, about 20 books all said and done... i picked one up on a whim in the bookstore (was in the mood for something dragony) and after reading the first book, i was HOOKED. it's not fantasy like you would think, it's VERY sci fi-ey and has more elements of mystery in it as well... some cool time travel later in the series, and very character driven... enjoyable series.

Just did a research about Atlas Shrugged...
It's having a movie adaptation, omg. It must be so good for it to have a movie.

And about the dragonriders, maybe I'll buy the first volume too. I kinda enjoy Sci-fi that much.
Either way, thanks for the recommendations. ^^

If you like Sf books I strongly recommend Dune series.Is a series containing 6 volumes written by Frank Herbert.Is absolutely fantastic!Very deep and full of suspense.

Not to mention notions to ecology. There are also 2 trilogies; House Trilogy and Butlerian Jyhad, even though they're definitely light reading when compared to original work, but If you ask me a LOT better when you need to introduce someone to Dune setting itself.

Speaking of which, you wouldn't happen to know anything similar to Dune when it comes to books? What I'm basically looking for is, I guess, interstellar political drama/novel... if such a thing even exists besides Dune.


Well, Frank Herbert also wrote Pandora.I didn't like it as much as i liked Dune though.Well i don't think i'll ever like something as much as i liked Dune...Actuallly he wrote it together with another writer,but he died before finishing it so the other writer finished it alone.Try Asimov's Foundation series as well.But read something first abouit his works cause i remember that even the series are in cronological order...If I remember well the Robots series are first,but i'm not 100% sure.I bet you'll find something on wikipedia

Well, try to read Mario Puzo's books. You might be familiar with 'The Godfather'? The Fortunate Pilgrim is a great book; suffering, harshness of reality, perseverance.
Don Quixote by Miguel De Cervantes, it exemplifies the stupidity of an overzealous man. It has some lovey-dovey moments but it's really subtle and I doubt it would fall under "sex." It's hilarious.
First Man In Rome by Colleen McCullough
War and Remembrance by Herman Wouk (this and the above are historical novels with a twist; but War and Remembrance is truly remarkable, and it's a sequel to The Winds of War, so read that first if you want)
Oh this is one of my favorites, The Companions of Jehu by Alexandre Dumas.

And just for fun, albeit the 'no sex' part you mentioned.Sex with the Queen by Eleanor Herman. It's not fiction. It's a fact-based book of all the early man whores/extra lovers of the royal queens/princesses. And how those 'lovers' got killed et cetera, ha ha So you might enjoy that, MIGHT.

If you're okay with sci-fi, I greatly recommend, no not recommend, I insist you read The Gods Themselves by Isaac Asimov. Magnificent book. Amazing. And it's Isaac Asimov, master of the sci-fi books....so it's good(>.<") Read it. Read it. Read it.
