Man I really dislike DeLillo. So full of himself and so convinced he's writing something "important" all the time.

Just read Haruki Murakami's The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle. Amazing. I could not put it down. I read all 600 pages over the course of a Sunday. Anyone read anything else by him?

Like a boss,
check my post earlier in this thread - he is my favorite author. If you liked The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle try Hardboiled Wonderland and the End of the World. Love that book.
South of the Border, West of the Sun is a beautiful story. Read it several times.
Hated, absolutely hated the ending of Kafka on the Shore. Threw it across the room. Bollocks.
Dance Dance Dance and A Wild Sheep Chase are brilliant I think.
*edit* I realized I only mentioned him, but none of his books that I like.パウダーバカ！！

Ismael, My Ishmael & The Story of B

Two great authors and four books that had paradigm altering effects for me.

I think that my favorite author is Dan Brown. All of his books that I read were real good.
