The only one I've read out of them is The Host by Stephanie Meyer. It's an easy read that wasn't very brain taxing at all.
Answered By: Kate - 3/18/2009
THE HOST, because it's not like Stephenie Meyer's Twilight book. It's actually not that bad. It's about how aliens, parasites, come and take over Earth, and how a couple is brought together and broken up by it. It's very good, though it's a bit complicated

Alice Sebold's a great author. I want to read Revolutionary Road. The only other thing I can tell you about the list is don't read John Grisham novels unless you're into that type of thing.
Answered By: ehh, tu m'emmerdes - 3/18/2009
I heard that Meyer's book, The Host, was very good. Its about like leeches or something, it may be a bit out-there. I also heard that The Appeal and The Associate by Grisham was also very good. All of the other titles I haven't heard of. Good Luck!

7 REVOLUTIONARY ROAD, by Richard Yates. (Vintage, $14.95.) Frank and April Wheeler, a beautiful young couple living in 1950s America, see their supposedly perfect life come undone. Then you can watch the movie starring Leonardo Di Caprio!

Read "the host" and "revolutionary road" and "the alchemist"
Answered By: Ruby - 3/18/2009
Go with The Host. Mostly because it's an easy read. And it's not as bad as Twilight. Or, The Alchemist, The Shack, or Revolutionary Road.

Edgar Sawtelle is an interesting read but I'd also go with Revolutionary Road or Alchemist, both fine writing. Edgar Sawtelle is a re-telling of the `Hamlet' story, if that helps in any way. Alchemist is fascinating but often leaden in delivery of scenes. Revolutionary Road is heartbreaking but well told. Hope this... More
