Books, actually: The Border Trilogy by Cormack McCarthy - enjoyed them more than his more heralded and cinematized works.
I second McCarthys books. His 'unheralded' earlier novels are also fantastic: Suttree and Blood Meridian. Also No Country for Old Men. He has a very spare writing style that I greatly enjoy.Another author that I find mesmerizing, with fantastically intriguing stories is David Mitchell; Cloud Atlas, the Bone Clocks, and The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet. The above encompass all of the best books I have ever read. Thanks for starting this thread, Duaty. It has produced a wealth of great ideas for future reads.
Yeah , Cormack McCarthy wrote some great stuff . Anyone here familiar with Jack Chalker ? Dusty
Appropriately enough, given the date, I'll throw out a recommendation for Buddy Holly Is Alive and Well on Ganymede by Bradley Denton. It's an odd but compelling story, set primarily in southern Kansas and northern Oklahoma, so you'll recognize a lot of the places described. Considerable British motorcycle content, too.
"The Amazing Adventures Of Gladys Stoatpamphlet and her intrepid spaniel Stig, amongst the giant pygmies of Beccles; Part 2". By Charles Dikkkens. Well known Dutch author.
For light reading, Douglas Adams' Hitchiker's Guide series.2 Years Before the Mast. It'll give you a completely different insight into sailing and California's early history. Also, author Dana's history is sad and interesting.As mentioned before, not unheralded but what good books are?Dusty, if you are interested in WWII Submarine stories, I have a nice little library I'd share.
James Hall (for the person who liked Randy Wayne White)Stoner - John WilliamsAnything by Harry Bingham (interesting female protagonist)Ken Follett's early works around WWI
We need to discuss that . One of my favorite books was written by Richard Bach , Illusions , the Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah . Dusty
I just finished A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman. I'm not sure if it would qualify as unheralded. A terrific read though. Briefly it's about a curmudgeonly older man interacting with and recoiling from society as it changed around him, and, indeed, became involved with him despite his best efforts. It was surprisingly enticing, regardless of my crappy description. That and I didn't want to give too much away. http://www.amazon.com/dp/1476738025/?tag=googhydr-20&hvadid=96686193989&hvpos=1t1&hvexid=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=9222740365729229205&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=b&hvdev=t&ref=pd_sl_75uptx860o_b
