This is a question Books

We love books. Tell us about your favourite books and authors, and why they are so good. And while you're at it - having dined out for years on the time I threw Dan Brown out of a train window - tell us who to avoid.

Spot on
Especially about Carl Sagan. Loved the Cosmos series when it was first shown on TV, and was given the book. It's a bit battered now, but still very thought provoking and highly informative.

As I've said previously about Banks, I love his work and the hardness to his Sci-Fi, but every time the story builds up slowly until you're on the penultimate page. The Algebraist being a particularly good example.
