    • Kitchen Confidential

    • Survivor

    • The Third Policeman

    • The Count of Monte Cristo
  • By Michael Crichton
    • Prey

    • All Families Are Psychotic

    • Pattern Recognition

I highly recommend all of the above books. With the exception of The Third Policeman and The Count of Monte Cristo, all of these books are an easy read and easy to get into. The Third Policeman is totally whacked and is hard to get into, but if you've got a similarly warped mind to my own, you'll enjoy it. Whatever you do, do not read the preface until after you've read the book. The editors (of my edition, at least) should be shot. The Count of Monte Cristo is a fantastic work that you won't be able to put down once you get into it.
