    Very nice, interesting thread. I'm a big reader, and my favorite author is without a doubt Ernest Hemingway. I couldn't agree more with the OP's favorite Hemingway books, as The Old Man and the Sea, The Sun Also Rises, and especially For Whom The Bell Tolls (maybe my favorite book) are my three favorites by him.

    I'm also a big fan of some of Coetzee's stuff (especially Disgrace), Joyce Carol Oates (mostly her short stories), some Fitzgerald, and Nabokov. I read a lot of history as well, as I have a history degree. Depending on the subject and the way it is written I sometimes prefer those to fiction. Depends on my mood I guess.

    Recently finished "The Sea Wolf" by Jack London, and enjoyed it more than I expected to.

    Richard Yates is my favorite author. He's unrelenting.

    Knut Hamsun wrote the greatest novel of all time, "Hunger," but didn't sustain it and in fact went sort of crazy. Also a big fan of Charles Bukowski, especially his earlier novels, and John Fante's short stories and his novel "Ask the Dust" (avoid the movie, though, it's terrible).

    i like a lot of what was already mentioned, but i also like clive cussler in all the various branches, dirk pitt, kurt austin, oregon files. i like lee child with his jack reacher series, i like tess geritson, james patterson, steven king, dean koontz, elmore leonard and carl hiaasen. i have even found the harry potter stuff to be enjoyable, my kids turned me on to that. plus too many more to name.

    reading is so much better than movies, i hardly watch movies these days, i've read the books and the movies just suck, in my opinion.

    basically, if it keeps me turning pages, it's good!
