*NEWS FLASH*!  

Amazon has finally come up with a good e-reader - the Kindle Fire. Touted as a competitor to iPad et al...... it ain't!
But it is a vast improvement on the older Kindle device and should be seen as such - and it's a bargain at $199

This is a personal perspective about my favourite authors of the best fiction today…… those whom I consider above average, yet accessible to a wide variety of readers.

Included are crime thrillers, others are historical fiction, adventure, fantasy novels – chosen for the style, subject matter, writing skills or simply narrative pleasure.

DIGITAL BOOKS OR HARD PRINT BOOKS??
Despite the doomsayers telling us that print books are fading away (they're not) in favour of digital books and e-readers - there is really NO NEED to decide between either. There is a place (and need) for both.

E-readers are incredibly convenient and many booksellers (e.g. Amazon, Barnes & Noble ) offer novels in both formats now and so do many major authors such as Michael Connelly and Sharon Kay Penman to name just two. You can take heaps of books on your e-reader when on long plane trips, vacations and so on.

AND, with print books you can still have the pleasure of holding a book in your hands as you devour the works of favorite authors.

SO HAVE BOTH OPTIONS!!!

This site is about top fiction books as entertainment …….. reading good novels is something to do when you are bored … when the TV is blah ….. to wind down before you go to sleep …….. for when you have to sit in a plane or train for hours or are waiting for the doctor to FINALLY see you ……. !!!!

This is about reading books - good fiction novels – but not an Academic nor research site about English Literature

Reading Books - 4fun …… something to relax you ……. something to hold your interest ….. to pass the time ….. something for a rainy day or a summer holiday……… or when you simply want to ‘veg’ out and put aside the day’s stress.

I can truly say I am never bored – because I always have a good suspense, historical fiction or fantasy book to read – be it Patricia Cornwell, Reginald Hill, Mo Hayder, Margaret Weis, JK Rowling, Raymond E Feist, Ken Follett, Jeffrey Archer and many others.

My Criteria For A Good 'Read'
I have based my choices of the best top fiction books on the following:
My general love of reading as relaxation and fun

Characterization – my interest in and the likeability of the main protagonist/s.... factual or fictional ... Cleopatra or Harry Potter; Ender Wiggins or Alexander the Great; Harry Bosch or Matthew Scudder.

Narrative style – the best fiction authors keep you turning the pages and it’s simply a sheer joy to read their prose and style….. e.g. James Lee Burke, Michael Connelly, Lawrence Block.

Locale:  where it is set – e.g. African based books always grab my attention.... such as with Wilbur Smith or Beverly Harper.

Sometimes the period – I’m a sucker for anything written set in ancient Egypt, ancient Greece or ancient Rome and the Middle Ages for medieval England (e.g Sharon Penman’s books).

Genre/Stylethrillers, crime/police procedurals, sci-fi and fantasy – e.g. I don’t like so-called ‘romances” – yet I value a good love story that is embedded in an overall story – be it the relationship of the main character with his/her spouse or boy/girlfriend. This often illuminates more about the main character adding to our interest in him/her and thus the book as a whole.

One caveat – this is mainly about top fiction books by currently living authors – although some golden oldies have crept in. (I wrote most of this page in 2008 - sadly Robert B Parker has since died)

Treat this site of top fiction books like a library – browse through the shelves (i.e. the menu) and see what you like … there is even a spot for you to contribute your ideas or comments too. A caveat – just because some writers are not included doesn’t mean that they don’t match up to those I have included – it’s simply that I haven’t yet added them in or I haven’t followed them.
