    Stephen king, but his books are really dark and evil usually. I stopped reading them for this reason.

What Guys Said 24

  • Neal Stephenson

    He writes books based on technology - but it's not always MODERN technology. For example, he wrote a trilogy (each of the 3 books being about 1200 pages!) that is a historical fiction (a handful of invented characters who interact with real, historical people) about the beginnings/development of modern science during Isaac Newton's time (1660-1720 or so).

    He's an amazing writer - the level of research he does is insane - and he can create such texture and depth in a 12-word sentence that most authors couldn't match with an entire paragraph. There's even plenty of humor - I'm often laughing out loud.

    If you're interested, I recommend starting with his book "The Diamond Age" - which is about a time in the future when nanotechnology is common, and a rich man has a gifted nano-developer create a book for his 5-year-old (wealthy, privileged) granddaughter that is completely interactive and that is designed to teach her to reject society's restrictions and think for herself - and the book ends up getting stolen and falls into the hands of a 5-year-old white-trash little girl instead.

    The book will seem overly-techy at first, but by the first few chapters, you'll be hooked!

    • I love him- if it weren't for Terry Pratchett, he's easily be my favorite.

  • The only books I've enjoyed are from Andrzej Sapkowski.

What Girls Said 10

  • Matthew Woodring Stover, for his Caine series, which was outright masterful. It mixed genres and storytelling styles and was entirely engrossing. Not for the faint of heart though, very dark and very violent, while also being a contemplation on violence in media and society at large. All wrapped up in a gritty antihero centric fantasy/scifi mashup. Those books pulled off things I didn't think could be done, including make me pick a favorite.

  • As a girl I looove Judy Blume, Ann M. Martin and Paula Danziger because they wrote book series. But now I don't really read more than one book from the same author so it's hard to say. But I'"ll probably say Judith Orloff. her book "Emotional Freedom" will always have a special place in my heart❤️
