    Just love everything about the book. The Characters are dark and shady. It also serves as the basis for one of the greatest sci-fi movies ever (BladeRunner).
    just the name itself is awesome. haha

    Also I know this might come out of left field but Jurassic Park is one hell of a book.

    Matthew Reilly is an awesome author. Fast paced and strong stories. I would recommend Ice Station.

    I mainly read zombie fiction books, my favourite being J. L. Bourne- Day by Day Armageddon and the sequel. It was recommended to me on the We're Alive forum as well so I do recommended trying the books mentioned on here out.

    I'd be interested to know what the Mass Effect novels are like. I'm a big fan of that game series but I haven't read any of the books.

    If you love the games you'll love the books.

    I'm guessing you've played both games, so there's no spoilers here.

    The 1st book is all about Saren and Captain Anderson, You remember at the beginning of the first game right before you get on normany as a specter you talk to him about his past. Well this book is all about it.

    The 2nd book takes place after ME1, the reference Shepard once, but that's it. and it's all about the girl in the first book, and kids being trained with biotics . And they reference the end of this book when you visit the migrant fleet in the game. which is cool. ALso you start to hear about the collectors.

    The 3rd book is all about the illusive man, and you learn alot about him, not done with it yet, cause Im taking my time.

    They are writen VERY well, I believe he actually wrote the story for the games too.

    Worth reading, you'll love them.

    I want to give a shout out to the first Gears of War books by Karen Traviss. The first one Aspho Fields is great. It shows how Marcus and Dom become friends and goes into the background of their early lives and how they end up being COGS.

    The second one (Jacinto's Remnant) takes place after Gears of War 2. I'm not going to go into detail about it. I know it is a game over 2 years old but there are still people I'm sure who didn't play it and might want to.

    Both books are worth a read. Got me back into reading big time.

    If you're a fan, check them out. They are a great read, espicially Aspho fields. It sheds so much light on why the characters are the way the are.
