"The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by Douglas Adams. The best Sci-fi novel I've ever read. It has four sequels, and they'll keep you busy for at least three months.

P.S.: I know that this is an old thread, but it's still listed as important, so I figured that it would be ok to post on it (besides I've used the term "groundbreaking" to describe this book a couple of times.)

this thread is exempt from the "let it die" rule so are a bunch of others (should actually state that in them); else the "groundbreaking" rule applies hehe

Magic the gathering series,

They are a take off of the cards and the stories a brilliant. If you like that cards or like interesting stories i found these to be entertaining and page turning. The dan brown books aswell are excellent. And a bit of topic but the computer magazine PC extreme is good reading aswell.

Looking for reverse enginearing systems in rare/obscure/old programming languages, also I'm not smart enough to read the rules and now my post has been edited by Infinite I suppose I'll go read them now before I get banned.

The Blue Nowhere - Jefferey Deaver (may remember him from The Bone Collector)
awesome book. all about a white hat hacker and cracker who... mmm, maybe il try this out in the review section.

Also, Dean Koontz wrote a Book called Fear Nothing. The sequel to this was Seize the Night. There was supposed to be a sequel to Seize the Night (these three books were known as the Christopher Snow Trilogy)
However, this was about 3 years ago.
Iv searched online in vain for word of the third unknown book. Dean Koontz has, of course, published many books since Seize the Night so i was just wondering if anyone on the boards knew or heard of him finishing the Christopher Snow Trilogy.
(the books fall under the science fiction genre)
