The Question Club
I wondered if anyone here could perhaps point me in the direction of a book, or even a whole series, of a certainish kind.|
Actually, all I'm really looking for is a Clive Cussler-ish kind of book, but better written. Action-adventure with a good sprinkling of mystery and comedy. A lead character, man or woman, with a friend who they're always getting into trouble with. They can be best friends, best friends with that little hint of subtext, or madly passionate lovers who have sex and go on crazy awesome adventures. And mad bonus points if the best friend or hero is captured by some force of evil and then either hero or best friend must rescue their other half.
I'm sure lots of books could meet these qualifications, but I'm hoping to find some with good dialogue, 3-D characters, and so on and so forth. I really enjoy Clive Cussler's crazy plots, but his actual writing makes me want to hurt things.
