Since I acquired a Kindle several years ago, I've found that I can read all of an author's books in a series IN ORDER, rather than scouring 2nd hand bookstores for one of the books in a series and taking whatever was available in the order it was found.
So, in the last few years, I've gotten stuck into several authors that have caught my attention...
So, going back to the acquisition of the Kindle....authors in order and their series are:
Stephen Hunter, the Sniper series with Bobby Lee Swaggart -- 14 books
G.R.R. Martin Game of Thrones -- 5 books...months and months
Chris Ryan - author of the Strike Back series...SAS exploits...
Andy McNab - Nick Stone, ex SAS adventures...13 or so books ... good reads
Bernard Cornwell - Starbuck Copperhead series of 4 books about the USA Civil War - 4 books
I took a break and read some single books (not series), one of which was by
Tom Kratman "Caliphate", about the Islamic takeover of Europe..very interesting...let's hope it doesn't happen.
And finally, the series that I thought I'd never finish...
George Macdonald Fraser - Flashman Chronicles -- 12 books and I wish there were more
I'd have to say that the best of the last 3 years or so was the Flashman series...witty, informative, entertaining, and suspenseful. If you ever want to get a picture of the imperialism of the UK in the mid 19th century, this is the series for you. I finished book 12 last week, and now have to find something else.
I think I'll be trying to catch up with Bernard Cornwell's tales of pre-Norman England, but might just go for something else.
For the moment, however, I have just finished Midnight Train: Sidetracked, the second book in a trilogy about an Issan girl who comes to Pattaya to work...some interesting insights there, clearly written by an author (David Geoffries) who knows what he is talking about. Of course, you should read book 1 first...Midnight Train: Destination: Pattaya
Just yesterday, I started a book written by a pair of defense analysts, many compare it to Tom Clancy's :"RED STORM RISING". It's called GHOST FLEET, a novel of the next world war that is started by China against the USA.
So, if any of you are readers, fiction or otherwise, what books do you find most interesting?
