I used to read fiction but now I feel guilty spending that much time not working but not learning anything either, so for sheer entertainment value I watch movies instead. And of course most movies suffer from the same flaws you have pointed out in modern books. So we are in the same boat.
I do buy audio books for long car trips...I won't leave home without one! They keep me from getting too bored and falling asleep or just crashing into an overpass to end the boredom!
Mostly I read non fiction when I do read. The last book I read was a Photoshop book...hehe.
The only ficition book I can recommend off the top of my head is really five books by Douglas Adams. And you know which series I mean: Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Now that's imaginative writing!
Have you tried the Terry Pratchett audio books they are very good. The best ones are read by Nigel Planer. After listening to him read the storys all the other people who have done the same job seem some what lacking in emotion.
I have got the Douglas Adams books but havent got round to listening to them yet - thanks for the tip I'll dig them out and give 'em a go.
I'd also be interested in your list please post it. Thanks
Have you found any books that meet the grade yet?
