@centrox,
Steady on, that's probably a bit too deep deep deep.

Like Jules Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea? Now that's what I call deep.

@MKABRSTI,
I'm mostly into literary fiction like Jonathan Franzen, Donna Tartt, Hilary Mantel. I'm not sure to what genre they pertain, but they are just good books that are interesting and enjoyable to read.

@NormanK,
Donna Tartt is a favourite of mine.

Quote:
Grossman invites us to survey “a vast blurry middle ground in between genre fiction and literary fiction” inhabited by the likes of Cormac McCarthy, Kazuo Ishiguro, Kate Atkinson, and Jennifer Egan, whose books don’t so much transcend genres as simply collapse them. He argues persuasively that Michael Chabon, Jonathan Lethem, Donna Tartt, and Neil Gaiman have succeeded in “grafting the sophisticated, intensely aware literary language of Modernism onto the sturdy narrative roots of genre fiction …They’re forging connections between literary spheres that have been hermetically sealed off from one another for a century.”

@okayedu6,
You've got no place writing essays if you write sentences like that.

My favorite writers are Thomas Mann and Hermann Hesse, so I can consider my favorite genre as intellectual novel.

@MKABRSTI,
Books with an art crime/art theft theme are my favorite. Most recent reads: Chasing Cezanne (Peter Mayle), Flies in the Punch Bowl (Erika Simms), Gardner Heist (Ulrich Boser).
