Favourite Authors

Who are you favourite authors ?

This morning I started to read Haruki Murakami's "Kafka on the Shore". It is a great book. I started to read the book this morning and then I finished it around 7pm this evening. It is a seriously good book and difficult to put down.

I like Murakami's style of writing and he certainly seems to have a good deal of insight into the darker side of things (though it has to be said that this is probably the least dark of the his books that I have read). Anyway, whilst reading the book I came to the conclusion that this is quite possibly the best book I have ever read (of course it could just be that I have forgotten the other great books that I have read - DH Lawrence's "The Rainbow" definitely also ranks very highly)!

In addition to Murakami, Paul Auster is another of my favourite authors. If you haven't read either of these authors' works then I can heartily recommend that you do so. If you have any favourite works/authors that you think I should read then please let me know!

In terms of non-fiction I recently came across this funky literary work. It describes why especially in this day and age that the customer experience is the most important thing for a business to get right. The moral of the story is "make sure you don't have any customer facing idiots" - the risk is just too high that they will do more harm than any salary savings you may make.

You must try reading it in its original text, as it is excellent!
