    David Eddings The Belgariad series did it for me more than any other fantasy series.

    Jane Austen
    Arthur Conan Doyle
    Heinlein
    Chelsea Quinn Yarbro
    Steven Brust
    Piers Anthony
    Rex Stout
    Ngaio Marsh
    Robert B. Parker
    Spider Robinson
    Amy Lane
    Patricia Kennealy

    I could go on...

    Can't believe I left out Tolkien. Christopher Paolini is also on my list.

    I liked that one a lot, but Salem's Lot is my favorite for sentimental reasons.

    SPOT ON WITH Eoin Colfer!
    He may make a lot of "Children's" books but heck I love reading them... waiting out till this movie of his actually gets into its production phase.

    Glad you asked, Its my favourite book and I was hoping for this. According to wikipedia it was in the works since 2001 and got put on hold, but I have seen a recent (well within 12 months) of the Author discussing whether it would occur.
    Rumours were said that it was being debated whether is was going to be acted or anime, then between the two producing companies there was a debate - two board members walked out and formed their own company which is now in partnership with the other company (not the one they walked out from) wanting to do the Artemis Movie. I know the script has been finished and they bought the rights to the first few novels - suggesting more than 1 movie.
    (ahh found where i got this from Artemis Fowl Movie | Artemis Fowl FanGathering)
    Eoin said it just got put on hold and his not sure when it will be put in production as they contacted him again then really heard nothing since. He jokingly said it would be finalised 1 year after his death. I hope this movie goes through and they don't stuff it up!


    On a side note how good was the ending of the last book, impressive way to kill it off.

    Oh yeah I loved the last book, I couldn't put it down. I was sixteen at the time, and I was at my dad's house for the weekend, I just read that sucker till I was finished.

    My friend loves the series so much his password for a while was Butler.

    Agreed. I had the same experience. My girlfriend knows I dislike reading usually as she thought it was weird or more sus that I ignored her for three days to read the first one (some reason I started with the second) and the last two.

    I miss my friend Matt McQuinn he touched so many lives, and in the end gave his life to protect someone that he loved. I am proud to have known him, and of the choices he made when it mattered. You were a true hero.

    Very interesting dynamic... just curious, do you feel peaceful when angry? (If that doesn't make sense ignore it, I'm not trying to insult you in any way).
