The Dark Tower Series by Stephen King. Love it. And I can't believe there will be an 8th book coming out soon!
I'm currently reading 11/22/63
and I find it very well done. Really intriguing. I've read many novels and short stories by Stephen King, but I never approached The Dark Tower
. Would you recommend it even if I'm not a huge Western buff?
I have read The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogy. Amazing.
Harry Potter of course. Diehard Pothead here
Tolkien's works are seminal and I liked both The Hobbit
and The Lord of the Rings
very much. I've re-read both several times.
As for Harry Potter
, I'm a fan too. My favorites books in the series are The Goblet of Fire
and The Half-Blood Prince

I've read and enjoyed them until Anne Rice went crazy and started adding tons of religious overtones to the novels. The first trilogy - Interview with the Vampire
, The Vampire Lestat
and Queen of the Damned
- is superlative. Too bad that the following books didn't live up to this legacy.

Ah! Shelock Holmes! I'm a huge, huge, huge sherlockian myself, but I must say that Arthur Conan Doyle's other works, especially the weird and supernatural tales, are almost as good. Definitely one of my favorite authors.
Shakar wrote:Complete work of Jane Austen. All of her stories are great. My faves will always be Pride and Prejudice and Sense & Sensibility.
I read Sense and Sensibility
and Northanger Abbey
. Both are great books and, sooner or later, I will definitely read Austen's other works.
Gabriel Knight novels
This really goes without saying
