Yeah! Angels and Demons was an absolute page-turner. One of those books I really :P couldn't keep down. And I too didn't find The Da Vinci Code nearly as exciting as Angels and Demons. Deception Point and Digital Fortress again didn't get my pulse racing, but were exciting at least upto some point.

Hey! What about Micheal Crichton? All of his books may not be exciting(not taking into account Jurassic Park series and Timeline) but books like The Andromeda Strain, Congo, Sphere give us a lot to think about.

And P.G.Wodehouse is a humorous writer in a class of his own. Whenever I am feeling down-and-out reading a piece of conversation between dear old Bertie and the inimitable Jeeves pulls my spirits up. Hoping to have a collection of all books featuring Jeeves.

No offense, but I hate Michael Crichton books. They're incomprehensibly boring. I started both Jurassic Park and Prey. I dropped Prey after the first 5-10 chapters but drudged through Jurassic Park, slowly. They're just so boring

I second that. I liked Jurassic Park, but the others I couldn't read, like Congo, etc...

Also, there's a new topic for us to decide a book so that we can actually get a Book Club underway. I'm assuming you saw that considering the vote for Slaughterhouse 5 :P , but I just wanted to make mention to all who want to be in the bookclub to get your vote on. If a couple of books are close to 5 and you wouldn't mind reading them, please vote for them in an effort to get one picked a.s.a.p. Your top pick can always be our next book. ;)

No offense taken. :P I know they are not thrilling page-turners like Dan Brown, Robert Ludlum and the kind. But I just seem to like them. But I will agree that Prey wasn't one of his best books with his endless description about Imaging and theories(but I read that as well, wasn't surprised when the hero's wife was found to infected by the swarm near the end :P ). The Terminal Man would beat Prey in terms of action, though.
