    I haven't read too many novels apart from the famed Harry Potter series, Halo series and Gears of War series.

    Halo and Gears of war novels are amazing. Only thing is that you should have played a few of the videogames to understand them better from Characters point of view.

    Dan Brown has some good novels beyond The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons. I have heard about a few though I don't remember. Search on Google. One is Deception point or something by Dan Brown.

    Once, me and my father were going in our Jet. I had my Walkman plugged in. Suddenly my father looked at the MID and exclaimed "What's wrong with the car? The MID is showing "Stop For A Minute". :eek:

    It made me burst into laughter as "Stop For A Minute" displayed was actually title of a song being played!!! :lol:

    VW and Suzuki bicker over Suzuki decision to buy Fiat engines

    Suzuki seeks 'Divorce' from Volkswagen

    Suzuki denies breaking agreement with Volkswagen

    Suzuki Motor Corp. said it didn‘t break a cooperation agreement with Volkswagen AG (VOW), after the German car maker said the Japanese company violated terms by deciding to buy engines from Fiat SpA.

    Suzuki definitely didn‘t break the partnership agreement, Hideki Taguchi, a spokesman for the Hamamatsu City, Japan-based automaker, said today by phone. Suzuki decided in June to buy diesel engines from Fiat for cars built in Hungary, expanding its partnership with the Italian car maker.

    Osamu Suzuki, the Japanese carmaker‘s chairman, said in an interview on Aug. 10 that the company sees no reason why Volkswagen would be upset about Suzuki expanding its purchase of engines from Fiat.
    Suzuki formed an alliance with Fiat to make diesel engines in Asia in 2005. In June this year, it expanded the agreement to buy engines from Fiat in Hungary.

    When the deal was signed in December 2009, with VW taking about a 20 percent Suzuki stake, the companies said they intended to cooperate on technology, including hybrids and electric cars, and expansion in emerging markets. Almost two years later, no joint projects have begun.

    If you like the books by Dan Brown, try to get Foucault's Pendulum and The name of the Rose by Umberto Eco - you may like them. Personally, I never found Dan Brows books much entertaining - I consider them in same level of books by Chetan Bhagat. They are good for one read, but not really good for keeps.




    Some suspense\thriller books I like:

    Millennium series by Stieg Larsson (includes The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest)

    By Desmond Bagley
    Fly away
    Windfall
    The Spoilers

    By Robert Ludlum:

    The Bourne Identity
    The bourne supremacy
    The bourne ultimatum
    The Scarlatti Inheritance
    Trevayne
    The Chancellor Manuscript
    The Parsifal Mosaic
    The Prometheus Deception

    By Tom Clancy:
    The Hunt for Red October
    Red Storm Rising
    Patriot Games
    The Cardinal of the Kremlin
    Clear and Present Danger
    The Sum of All Fears
    Without Remorse
    Debt of Honor
    Executive Orders
    Rainbow Six
    The Bear and the Dragon
    Red Rabbit
    The Teeth of the Tiger

    By Frederick Forsyth:
    The Day of the Jackal
    The Odessa File
    The Dogs of War
    The Devil's Alternative
    The Fourth Protocol
    The Negotiator
