    Not really adventure but "The Shining" is still my favourite book. Still creeps me out when I read it

    Most interesting book i've read recently (where I couldn't put it down) was Licifer's Hammer by Larry Niven & Jerry Pournelle. Heres a review:

    The gigantic comet had slammed into Earth, forging earthquakes a thousand times too powerful to measure on the Richter scale, tidal waves thousands of feet high. Cities were turned into oceans; oceans turned into steam. It was the beginning of a new Ice Age and the end of civilization. But for the terrified men and women chance had saved, it was also the dawn of a new struggle for survival--a struggle more dangerous and challenging than any they had ever known....

    .........................................

    My other favourite books are:

    The Stand - Stephen King
    Rainbow Six by Tom Clancy
    '48 - James Herbert
    On the Road - Jack Kerouac

    In fact, add anything by Stpehen King & James Herbert to that list.

    I love reading, I could talk about books forever!

    Forgot to add Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson and Mr Nice by Howard Marks - not really fiction though.

    Curley, that Licifer's (Lucifer's?) Hammer sounds really good - I think I might pick it up.

    It is, only thing thats a bit off putting is that its based in the 60's, but its still a good read. If your serious about reading it, you may find it hard to get a copy. Let me know, I might be able to help
