    The only books I can think of is Shogun & Paradise Lost..

    With Game of Thrones (the book series is called Song of Ice & Fire) - try not to get absorbed by the extra characters. Sometimes one may be introduced & take over the story for a chapter or so, but they have little relevance in the grand picture. I loved the books, but sometimes I needed to check the character lists to stay on track. The foreign names are sometimes tricky!

    only one book I could never finish, Salman Rushdie, was the author. and the name of the darn book, I cant remember. it was quite a sensational book at the time, supposedly about the muslim faith, but it was later rubbished as a fake. It read like the author was high on drugs at the time, it was painful hard to understand or to follow. I was glad I had only borrowed it from the library, I would have been annoyed if I had bought it. marie.

    My favourite is probably Rachel's Holiday which is the second book that feature the Walsh family. Don't let our peer pressure sway you though. 😄

    50 shades, just terrible.

    I am reading a book at the moment - I am struggling big time, but unless it is really, really bad I usually just struggle through. I just hate that the main female character is so vapid. But I'll read it anyway.

    I definitely like The hobbit far more than the Lord of the rings trilogy!

    Having said that, I read them when I was a teenager. I love The Hobbit, and I love all the movies. So maybe I should give it another go...

    Dean Koontz too. I loved Odd Thomas but the others I've tried have been bad or I've just given up
