Favorite: Every one of them ..maybe, no it's too difficult to decide.
I've enjoyed reading each book .. I've not read Rat Race, Nerve or the latest. I check out every second hand book stall at markets for the books not in my collection and enjoy re-reading each story like visiting an old friend. My sympathies to Mr Francis and his family on the loss of his wife. Your legacy is in your work together which has brought the joy and excitment of racing to all your fans. Come visit us again "down under".

I love all Dick Francis books! The first one I found was Banker, and I purchased it second hand at a store in a campsite. I purchased it because I had a horse on the front, I read the entire book that weekend and I have never looked back. I now own almost all of his books, unfortunately most of them are soft cover, but the latest 5 - 6 I managed to purchase in hard cover. I have re-read all of my collection atleast 3 times. I will always treasure Banker as the first Dick Francis book I ever purchased!!

As an ex-Librarian who purchased the books for the library, it was always my pleasure to get "first dibs" on the new Dick Francis. Now I search the web in July for the new title so that I can put in my request for the new title and still get "first dibs". I am about the read them all again in sequence.

Favorite: Break In and Bolt but I also really like the 3 with Sid Halley.
Who can pick a favorite. I have been collecting the hardbacks, and with the help of my husband I am getting some of the very early ones!!! I read and reread all of them. I wait anxiously for the next...

Ever sense I started reading Francis I can not seem to get enough. I become so involved with the characters that I find I discuss them with my husband.

Favorite: The Sid Halley ones are my faves but I love them all!
I was thrilled to discover a Dick Francis novel more than twenty years ago. As a horse crazy child and now adult I can never find enough good fiction that portrays horses accurately. The huge bonus is that the books are fabulous mysteries too. I love how his characters are everyday people doing extraordinary things. No matter how many he writes, the world will never have enough Dick Francis novels!

High Stakes
Although one of the older books, published in 1975 it is a great read and one I have enjoyed rereading.

My favorite fiction writer of all time! Dick Francis is unique in bringing to light the un- common in characters and occupations, by his singular gift of illuminating his heroes and villans with that special glow, who define with actions more than words, with endless variety in unique and tightly drawn plots, the facets of Good and Evil in human nature.

Just starting in to Dick Francis seriously after reading portions of books at various times. Starting with Longshot. All mysteries have indiscretions, certainly, but its nice to read something that treats indiscretions so discreetly. Having read reviews, and as I said, portions, I can see the validity in the comments about the lead character always being the same, despite the name and circumstance. Maybe its like 50s TV, the same ensemble cast but with a different story everyweek, a PLAYHOUSE 90 for mysteries. Very enjoyable.

Favorite: 10lb Penalty
When I am ill or a little blue; and need something to concentrate the mind. I loose myself again and again into my Dick Francis books. I freqently pick up 10lb Penalty and read it cover to cover. My husband never reads novels but has a little check that I am OK when he sees these books out. They are such fun to read. Thank you very much

Finally I have found a Dick Francis site. I have been a racing and reading fan for a long time. I used to compete in 3 day events and showjumping and owned a retired race horse in Germany before I came to the US 12 years ago. His books are great to read and even for people who have no knowledge of this field easy to understand and give good inside into the business. And of course they also big fun to read. My biggest thrill would be to meet Mr. Francis in person and have his autographed picture.

Favorite: Come to Grief
I have been a huge fan of Dick Francis since 1982. Eagerly awaiting my annual Christmas novel from my wife I was disappointed to learn that he would not have a book coming out this year. I only just found out that Mrs. Francis had passed away. With all that I picked up "Come to Grief" out of my collection and started reading it for the fourth time. Thank you this website information.

Looking for a new Mystery in 2001 or 2002. Unable to locate any autumn 2001. Understand there may be circumstances that impact Mr. Francis writing. So enjoy each mystery, I have collected them all.
