Talking Harlan Coben books - January 9th 2010, 10:18 PM

Has anyone else read anything by Harlan Coben?
They're my favourite books, full stop, especially the ones with Myron in them. I think the best one is Back Spin, the one with golf in it. I read it on holiday and it's totally unguessable!

If you haven't read them I suggest you do! They're thrillers, usually with a bit of tongue in cheek comedy thrown in, and usually this guy called Myron Bolitar and his friend Win solve the murder case.

(There should be a film made of them with Jude Law as Win because he's made for that role!!)

Anyone else got views on the books? Just curious x

I now have a blog!
please follow my adventures as I strive to find humour in life, the universe, and everything (;

I used to read them; I didn't love them all but some were great! And I loved Myron and Win. My dad is obsessed with them

I read Hold Tight and The Woods, but that's it. I really liked them though. Especially Hold Tight. It was so good. I finished and was like "NO! MORE!" haha

I have read some of his books. I love them actually. I wanted to read hold tight but I didn't have the money to buy it. I cannot wait to read more of his books though.

I cannot remember the names of the ones I read but I loved them. They were just non stop action and that is one thing I love in a book.
