Well my Dan Brown Sucks thread turned into a recommend some authors/books thread so I thought I would dedicate a thread to it.

I don't read much fiction anymore but Neil Gaiman stands out , American Gods and Anansi Boys I can recommend.

I read more non-fiction and one of the best is

Adam Hochschild , his King Leopold's Ghost is excellent.

Jared Diamond's books are educational and enjoyable, I suggest Guns Germs and Steel to start

For anyone interested in physics, Lee Smolin is an excellent science writer besides being a top notch physicist.

I suggest The Trouble with Physics.

Looking forward to your recommendations/
