Hi everyone,
I was just thinking whether this kind of threads are necessary in this forum. It doesnt mean i wont read novels are books, but i could only find this kind of threads only in this forum and not in others. I dont know anyone had felt the same, and it is just my opinion and dont mind guys.

I appreciate your frankness.

hmmmm, I will have to check it out and let my friends that are interested read it, too.

I will have 4 days vacation coming up and no more again until x'mas, so I can read something other than articles, based upon the recommendations here.........:)....

I like your signature, Kajal.

I really enjoyed "Memoirs of a Geisha". It's an excellent book. I also like books by John Grisham. I guess it all depends on what you are in the mood to read.
Good luck!

U r absolutely funny man ................ :laugh:
if somebody else had told this may be i would have felt bad.
anyways, i saw a thread similar to this in some forum ,but i can`t remember where exactly...........

i too thought twice before starting this thread ,but then i thought this might indirectly help people who want to improve their language .It is very difficult to pick interesting novels from the vast ocean .So it would be easier for starters like me to pick good novels and keep the hobby going . The more u read , better the english, and better english improves ur communication skills which is very crucial for us to convince patients.
Hence please do let us know whats ur fav novel ........
Thank you.......

The Fountainhead by the one and only Ayn Rand......It was the only novel that I could literally not put down once I started it.....its a different matter that I could not fathom a word in all the lectures next day at dental school...its a MUST read....

Slightly close to our field is Final Diagnosis.....lots to learn from that one too.....

The Runaway Jury,A Time to Kill and The Firm are good ones from my all time favourite John Grisham.

Happy Reading!

P.s.AB Vajpayee,LK Advani and co will love to have Kajalkiran on their team!

I don't know where you're from or what you beleive in, but this is a great book: "The gospel according to Jesus Christ" by Jos? Saramago. The author is a communist and an atheist, so you can figure what to expect........

I love books and I love reading!! Radio and television are said to be the most far-reaching vehicles of communication. But for me, the written word speaks a language of its own. They say a picture speaks a thousand words, but I say a word sets off a thousand pictures.I'm a big fan of some Indian authors.
Some of my all time favourites :)
The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger
The Inscrutable Americans by Anurag Mathur
Grandmother's Tale by R. K. Narayan
The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway
Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier
To Killing Mocking Bird by Harper Lee
The Man Eater of Malgudi by R.K. Narayan
Who moved my cheese by Dr Spencer Johnson
Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri
Catch 22 by Joseph Heller
Boy - Tales of Childhood by Roald Dahl
A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry
The Glass Palace by Amitav Ghosh
Anne Franks Diary
Memoirs of a Geisha
My Own Country by Dr Abraham Verghese

I could go on forever but shall stop :)

naa you are fine! but do you really think your country needs another foreigner to compete with the issue when sonia gandhy exists?
ps: the ANC wouldn't be too proud either to lose a potential leader to India ;)

I like Sidney Shelton books. they are very interesting from the beginning.I love "The Doomsday Conspiracy" "Nothing Lasts Forever","Bloodline",Try Robin Cook's "Coma", "Fever" and "Brain" too.It's sort of slow initially but as it goes you wont keep it down.

Well, there are bigger issues than Sonia Gandhi.......anyways, don't wanna get into political issues.......members here might take things the wrong way.
I am sure ANC would like keep a potential leader within the country....;)

Or maybe is a culturally challenged area! :D. Disclaimer: I don't know where Toothlord lives.

Try amazon.com or barnes and nobles.com. Maybe if B&N have it online, they might be willing to send it to your local store, so you can get it there. :confused:

btw, the author is Portuguese, so the original book is in that language, not in Spanish.
