I'm looking for a new book, and a few people have told me they like Anne Rice. I read the synopsis for some of her novels and didn't think they were my sort of thing. Are they books that have romance as a key element of there story? If they are, than I probably won't read them. Three of my all time favorites: - The Hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy 'Douglas Adams' - The Road 'Cormac McCarhty' - To Kill a Mocking Bird 'Harper Lee'
