Book suggestions

What books would you recommend for some one who is a fan of David Eddings and Chuck Palinuk? I know nothing about these authors. I plan to do some searches on here and stuff, but I'd like to know which ones are the best or what other authors write the same kind of stuff...

  • I LOVE David Eddings. His Belgariad Series was amazing. Would make such and incredible series of movies, if done right. There are 10 books, plus 2 "extras" so it would have to be done like the Harry Potter movies. 1 Movie per book.

    I also love James Patterson, Tess Gerrison, Dean Koontz, Fern Michaels - chick flick in a book, and John Grisham. Most of these are Crime Drama, Law & Order style books.

    David Eddings is really the only "fantasy" writer I like, and I HATE that his books are always in the SciFi section, when they deal with Magic, and kings and knights and such.

  • Thanks for the suggestions! I'll look into those. I'm not sure if the "chick flick in a book" will work though.. lol.. This is for my male cousin who has just been deployed to Afghanistan! :)

    My sis said he's into "graphic novels". Whatever that means. She said "like comic books, only more reading, less pictures". But I still don't know what to look for. I'm a fan of Dean Koontz too. I think he might like some of them.. Hmm...

    Anyone else have ideas?
