  4. 4. llfilllll W 2 mun: Ender’s Game is quite possibly the most entertaining book l’ve ever read. Calling it a page-turner doesn’t do it justice.

  13. 13. Five seconds after viewing the inside cover of this book, I could not get the creativity of the premise out of my head. With this novel, Koontz brings to life multiple situations that require a decision between two equally deplorable options. The combination of Koontz's careful crafting of his vulnerable protagonist and his peppering of the plot with other memorable characters results in an exhilarating read that is impossible to put down. llilr. t: r(r.

  15. 15. Ludlum’s books remind me of James Bond movies but with more substance, a more complex plot, and unfortunately fewer gadgets. I started reading them in high school and still do whenever he publishes a new book. If anyone has seen the movie The Boume Identity they should have a good idea what his novels are about. If the three books in this series are too much to bite off, any of his books are excellent. Win‘. .17 o ride: it

POE / . v I I The Tales of Edgar Allan Poe, by himself Long before Stephen King, there was Edgar Allan Poe, who laid claim to perfecting the short story as a legitimate form of fiction at the same time as he excavated the depth and breadth of the dark side of the American psyche. Stories such as "The Cask of Amontillado, " "The Masque of the Red Death, " "The Tell-Tale Heart, " and "The Fall of the House of Usher" never fail to astound for their combination of mystery, suspense, and horror. For full effect, make sure you read this volume by the light of a dripping candlestick! ifs‘.

  28. 28. ME‘. l. =L«o: '1'. i1e If you like good scary plots and really interesting characters try Stephen King's It---the story of a group of adults who battled a terrifying demon as children and now must face the same monster again in their adult lives. It appears to each person in the form of their worst fear or nightmare. King does a terrific job capturing the characters as children. He really seems to have their voices as they bond together, share their deepest fears, and try to defeat evil. It is a tad long, but a real page-turner.
