Favorite: Any, though I found 2nd Wind not as good??? Quiver at the one's featuring cruelty to horses.
We read quite a lot of DF's books during the eighties. In 1989 I caught a virus that caused some memory loss. In the nineties I have managed to collect most of his books and was able to re-read them, fresh, as it were. decided to keep this lot, for a random read now and again and have ordered my last three, published earlier.

Dick Francis is one of my favorite authors.I had the pleasure of meeting him at a book signing in Columbis,SC and he was just as charming in person as the heros in his books.I eagerly await his yearly offerings and I hope I can talk to him again someday.

Привет из России.Я считаю,что DF один из самых выдающихся писателей прошлого столетия. И не только как мастер детективного жанра,но и как выдающийся гуманист и психолог. Несмотря на явно коммерческий характер его произведений, стиль DF сродни Чехову. Его жизнь может служить примером для подрожания, как образец мужественности. Из того , что издавалось в России , я приобрел 23 книги DF, почти каждая- шедевр. Будь здоров дедушка Dick,счастья тебе и всей твоей семье.

I have read all of his books and love, love, love them. Can't begin to choose a favorite!

I admire the way Dick Francis write books for many years.

Favorite: all are favourites, in particular"STRAIGHT"
The books by Dick Francis are really good. The style of writing puts me right where the action is, so much so I can feel the horses breathing right down my neck! And to think that I have never been on a racecourse or seen a race horse except on TV, in the movies and books.They also have a subtle vein of humor running through them, that I have to take time off and laugh. I hope Dick Francis writes books as fast as I can read them. After reading his books, others fall far short in comparison.

It's my favorite because it was the first I read. I am searching for older books in hardback to complete my collection. Any word about reprinting the older, shorter books? I would love to attend a booksigning, let alone have a signed book!

Favorite: Longshot, Flying Finish
I like all Francis books. Only the last book - Field of Thirteen - is too melancholy! But I like it too. Most of that books I read again and again. There is much information, which I use in my life.

Along with painting pictures, Alexander paints the beautiful and harsh Scottish landscape with words. What a great story. It was my first and, after reading many others, still my favorite.
Feb 25, 2000 at 17:15
Favorite: All the books I've read, re-read, and haven't read yet!
I love the attitudes of hero in Dick Francis novels. So practical! They do what they have to do - if the consequence is danger, well, in the words of my dear departed mother - "So be it!" Get through it and get over it. Life goes on. I think it's a "horse/animal/nature" sort of thing.

Great read and great characters.

Favorite: All of them but probably Nerve
Have all of Dick Francis books and re-read them constantly, looking forward to the release of Second Wind in paper back in Australia.

Favorite: Hard to decide
I was fortunate to discover a close friend that also loved DIck Francis. It is still difficult to WAIT each year for the new book. The agreement with my friend is...whoever sees the book first buys two copies!!!

Enjoyed the site

I have been a Dick Francis fan for about 20 years, and wait each year for a new book to be published. I have a wonderful friend in Illinois who always sends me the book as soon as it is published. Much appreciated as I am an American living in Sweden, and not much Dick Francis interest here.

Favorite: Each & every one
I have been reading Dick Francis since the late 60's and I have never been disappointed! The early books are all papaerbacks (since that's all I could afford!); the last 10 or so are all hard covers! I try to re-read them every year or so, and the message is still fresh in every one!

The two Syd Halley novels
From the fist Dick Francis book I read , I was firmly hooked on this author. Hecombines two things I love to read about, horses & mystery. Can't wait till he has a new book out . Please write more Syd Halley books !!

Favorite: CAN'T DECIDE!!
LOVE THE MAN , HE'S ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT. HAS A LOT OF FANS IN MALAYSIA I BELIEVE , OUR PRIME MINISTER BEING ONE OF THEM. HAVE TO SAY I REALLY ENJOY HIS EXCELLENT, ECONOMICAL USE OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE AS WELL AS HIS CHARACTERISATIONS. I HAVEN'T MET A DF HERO(INE) I DON'T LIKE YET. 1 QUESTION THOUGH - WHY IS THE GUESTBOOK SO HEAVILY PATRONIZED BY THE FEMALE POPULATION?

I have truly enjoyed all of his books and started to collect them. I guess the one's i like best involve the father/son relationships then the single man relationships with siblings (whole, half, step or otherwise).

Favorite: KIt Fielding en Sid Halley stories, but often the last one I read
A friend I met in the library told me to read books of Dick Francis. Now I have all his novels, but not "Second Wind" which is not yet in the Dutch bookshops. And I read them repeatedly with pleasure.

Favorite: old: In the Frame - new: To the Hilt
I was very happy to find this great site and know there are other fans like me! Over the years I have collected all his books 1st edition HB - signed. My family makes a yearly pilgrimage to the Washington D.C. area to get the lastest book signed and to take a picture with him. His books are excellent - highly entertaining and just plain fun to read and re-read!

Favorite: Twice Shy
I am an avid Dick Francis fan, having read all his books and collected tapes of all the movies/TV series based on them. I especially like the fact that his protagonists are normal people (albeit with unique skills/knowledge) placed in extraordinary situations.

I have just found this site.I love all Dick Francis books,so it's hard to have a favorite. I have a lot on Audio tape.I look forward to the next one !.
Jun 3, 2000 at 14:58
My favorite because he explores some thoughtful adult themes in terms of the personal life of the narrator. Here's a guy who seemingly has the great family life and is successful on his own terms in his chosen profession. Yet the spark has gone out of his marriage and he's got to figure out what to do. I was more interested in the resolution of that situation than I was in the actual mystery.
Jun 10, 2000 at 17:05
Thank you for years of pleasure, beauty and compassion. Picking up a Dick Francis book is like settling in for a long visit with a favorite friend.

Favorite: All of them!
Although I have many authors that I make sure I read the latest from, DF is one of the few whose books I both buy and keep. Great character development; perfect in the eyes of others, yet modest :) I also enjoy the fact that I can find out little bits of esoteric information, ranging from antiques to wines. I'm sure a lot of research goes into those details.
Jun 20, 2000 at 14:20
Favorite: several, not just one!
Just found you all. Sounds like a great group. Of course, DF is one of my favorite topics.
