My 12 Top Fiction Novel List

shogun don sleep harry angels blood circle cross Histo Order taipan Partner

1) SHOGUN- (by James Clavell) The story took place in ancient japan about ass Kicking samurai and polital gobbling that could rival the modern day Philippine senate. simply Clavell at its best.

2) THE LAST DON (by Mario Puzo) The Master story teller of the novel Godfather is at the top of his game in this novel. Puzo knows how to end a good story.

3) THE SLEEPERS (by Lorenzo Carcaterra) The best novel out of Hell’s Kitchen. Carcaterra breaths life into the pages. A Count of Monte Cristo set up on modern day New York. A heavy theme written with the lightness of air.

4) HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS (by JK Rollings) The best Harry Potter so far. It gave an absolutely beautiful ending to this modern day Mythology.

5) ANGELS & DEMONS (by Dan Brown) A lot better that Da Vinci Code. More Original. Unlike the code where all facts were copied from other existing books such as Holy Blood Holy Grail, Templar Revelation, etc.

6) BLOOD CANTICLE (by Anne Rice) Anne Rice’s storytelling has never been this good. Marius is as good as it gets. Forget Lestat. This is story about how Marius the Wise came to be.

7) MATERESE CIRCLE (by Robert Ludlum) Vintage Ludlum. spinning, twisting the story like he always do on his other novels, only this one is better.

8 ) SIGN OF THE CROSS (by Chris Kuzneski) Conspiracy fans of Dan Brown would love this guy. The sign of the cross is a good sign for things to come. (a pity it never made it to the NY Times bestseller list)

9) THE HISTORIAN (by Elizabeth Kostova) Pure narrrative storyteller. Kostova shed a new light on the Count Dracula myth. historical and well research. Kostova is in a class of her own.

 10) EXECUTIVE ORDER  (by Tom Clancy) This novel is Jack Ryan on steroids. Fast pacing and power packed.

11) TAI-PAN (by James Clavell) A novel set on early Hong Kong. A story about man’s thirst for power and insatiable greed. A story about how the success story of Hong Kong as a British colony began

12) THE PARTNER (by John Grisham) Grisham out of his familiar (courtroom) turf but still pull out a winner. The one of the best roller coaster novel out of the legal thriller genre.

  1. i actually haven’t read shogun and tai-pan. but they were good movies/miniseries di ba? i started reading tai-pan din pala when i was in hs. just didn’t get to finish it. nakikibasa lang kse ako sa book ng tita ko, eh hindi pwede iuwi.
    pareho tayo na we love angels&demons better than the da vinci. actually, okei naman sana build-up ng davinci, semplang lang ang ending. nakornihan ako. unlike sa angels and demons.
    i sooo loved the partner also. the book is way better than the movie.baket kse binago pa nila yung sa movie.
    sleepers is one of the movies that truly touched me. ambigat sa damdamin di ba.
    i’ve read about more than half ata sa list mo. or about half.🙂
    i like stephen king’s books also. what about you?

  2. Antuken, I just love james clavell. I discovered his books just this year. He’s a master. I also don’t see movies serialized from books. they destroy everything. I haven’t seen da vinci movie yet hahaha. I also like the always romantic yet morbid Anne Rice. I have a lot of books (all fiction) maybe we’ll trade sometime, Hahaha

  3. i saw tai-pan elementary pa ata ako (or probably hs). basta remember ko miniseries sya sa gma. i enjoyed it kaya i tried reading the book. di ko na nga lang maalala. have you tried reading ann rice’s books na mejo may pagka-sekswal? i forgot na her pseudonym for those books eh. pero sobrang sekswal talaga. tipong ganito: si sleeping beauty bago pala nagising eh nirape pa or something. didn’t finish the book nga e. inosente pa kse ako wen i tried to read it. hmmn… pwede ko pala balikan yun ngayon na matanda na ako.🙂

  4. @Witchy… Salamat po sa pagdaan. Hey, I’m not saying those books are really that good. But they actually met my standards. (Paalala: Mababaw ako kaya mababa lang ang standard ko. hehehe)

  5. @Antuken…Hahaha. Yep I got the complete set ng Sleeping Beauty. The Taking of Sleeping beauty by AN Roquelaure… Morbid na ewan. yep pwede na siguro sa age mo. hehe. Kaso fetish masyado. Bondage. hahaha. di ko nagustuhan.

  6. hhmm, maganda tong listahan mo ha. pero di ko type si anne rice, ewan ko ba.. kasi laglag ako dun sa vampire series nya e. alam mo when i tried to click on your site from your comments in my blog, may lumalabas na ibang sites… kaya ngayon lang kita nadalaw e. pinaghahanap pa kita🙂

  7. i love your list except from anne rice. ewan ko ba, laglag ako dun sa vampire series nya e.

  8. @kengkay… oo nga, napansin ko nga yung tatlo hehehe. salamat sa pagdaan. Vampire chronicles? hindi lahat maganda. saka wag mo babasahin yung Pandora. Nakakasuka yung plot. parang isinulat nung bored yung writer hahaha.
