Who Is Your Best Foreign Writer by SamMilla1(m): 9:48pm On Apr 06, 2008
I HAVE READ A LOT OF FOREIGN NOVELS AND I CAN SINGLE OUT ONE MAN WHOSE WORK HAS BEEN OUTSTANDING.
HIS WORK HAS ALSO IMPROVED MY ENGLISH. HE WAS A LAWYER, SO MOST OF HIS WORKS ARE LAW BASED. I ENJOY SO MUCH HIS COURT ROOM TRILLS. HE ALSO MADE ME UNDERSTAND MUCH ABOUT LAW.

I AM TALKING ABOUT        JOHN GRISHAM

WHO IS YOUR BEST AND WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT His Or Her WORKS.

I love Patrician Cornwell - the Kay Scarpetta series. Johnathan Kellerman, as well. They are so many.

Sorry, Patricia!

I had a Stephen King phase in my twenties.

Sidney Sheldon- that guy is/was the father in writing he keeps u in suspense till the last full stop and when the culprit is finally caught u are left dumbfounded.
John Grisham- is an authority in writing, an icon that explains law in simple fashion that u have no choice but to understand Law.
Mario Puzzo- the best mafia lord his book on the borgia family (the family) is one i have read at least 50 times, that guy was good a pity he is dead.

I think Grisham and Sheldon are winning the majority vote for now.
I have not read the sheldon book before but you bet i will be on it now.
Grisham,  About twenty books so far,
Yet I dream about his new books before he releases them.
He is a genius.
Dan Brown is good too but his books are not many yet.
