    Muriel Spark I love her cold way of writing. Agatha Christie is definitely up there, and Margaret Atwood.

    Ohh Hardy's great but always makes me feel reaaaally depressed lol!
    Yeah, same with Victorian, mostly early nineteenth cent. though, but Vanity Fair's a big favourite

    BYATT BYATT BYATT etc. And Murdoch and Eliot when she's not being irritating and decides to get some fun, ungood characters (eg Gwen).

    Quite a lot of Attwood is rather sexist both ways, which put me off rather.
    As for Austen, I prefer the films - we get Knightley and nicer dresses than reality.

    Gotta say Jodi Picoult too - I've been devouring her books ever since I stumbled across "My sisters keeper" a few years back. They're more 'holiday books' though - the easy-reading, don't require too much thought type. Other than her it'd be good old Charlotte Bronte, Malorie Blackman, Margaret Atwood etc etc
