The first book I read by Dick Francis was Break In with Kit Fielding and his sister Holly. I've truly loved the three books of Sid Haley. All of Dick Francis' characters make me want to know more about their lives. They're so vivid you want to know them as people.

Favorite: ALL but one
I was introduced to Dick Francis books by way of Reflex, I so enjoyed the writing that I activly searched for other books by Mr Francis. I now have all of his books except Second Wind, which I thought was not up to his usual standard, I did not like the book and I have since given my copy away. I will never part with the rest of the colection, which I tend to pick up and re-read as often as twice a year. In the story "Stright" Mr Francis writes a short blurb (if you will) that I have passed on to friends and family alike, dI wonder if it is in fact of his own devise, or whether he heard of, or copied it from another sorce.........May I deal with honour......
..............May I act with courage........
..............May I achieve humility........

I've been reading Dick Francis novels since I received "Proof" as a Christmas gift about 10 years ago. I really don't have a favorite book because they are all so good, but I picked "Proof" because it got me hooked on Dick Francis books. I always like his main characters so much that I often wish there would be more books with the same main characters in them.

I've learned about photography and other subjects other than horses and horse racing.
Thanks for the education.

Favorite: Bolt & Break In
I Love Christmas (Kit) Fielding in the Break in and Bolt. I specially love the way he can sense what others are thinking and feeling. Wish I could do that.

Favorite: Come to Grief
My favourite only because I've just finished re-reading it - again!! I have all of Dick's books, except Sport of Kings. Is this autobiographical? Would you know if it is currently available? I was sorry to read of Mary Francis death in 2001 (from this website). Is Dick still writing. We used to buy the latest Dick Francis every year for Christmas, and we really miss it. I'd love another Sid Halley.
All the best to all the world wide fans of Dick and horse-racing. See you at the Melbourne Cup!

I HAVE ALL OF DICK FRANCIS' BOOKS. I HAVE READ ALL OF THEM AT LEAST TWICE. I HAVE SPENT MANY HOURS SEARCHING BOOKSTORE SHELVES FOR OTHER AUTHORS WHO HAVE THE SAME SENSE OF CHARACTER AND STYLE. I FOUND A FEW, BUT THEY WROTE ONLY A FEW BOOKS, THEN STOPPED. I NEED HELP.

Thank you for such a nice site. I love Dick Francis's books. Is it true that he has retired? That's too bad, I wish he could write forever.

I have read every Dick Francis books I can get my hands on since I went to England in 1998 and purchased a book on a small book stall while coming out of Kew Gardens.I could not put it down while touring Europe.

Can anyone tell me which DF book was the first to become a best seller? Or which one made him famous internationally?

I have now finished reading all of Dick Francis' books. It took a year, and what a thrill. I saved his autobiography for last. What an amazing author and jockey. I also want to recommend his biography of Lester Piggott. Now...to start the books all over again! Thank you Dick Francis.

UK friends brought Dick Francis Books to Saudi Arabia where I was working and passed them on to me. I now have copies of all but 7 of the books and will be purchasing them as soon as I find them.
Excellent reading written by a master.
Thanks Dick Francis

It it hard for me to have a favorite. I have one that disturbs me and is not my favorite - Bolt. I collect Dick Francis' books and reread them over and over again.

I actually started with Mr. Francis' first novel, "Nerve" and have never looked back. I've read all of his books, anxiously awaiting each new one. No one has his feel for characters. Dick Francis is definitely irreplaceable! He retired once and came back, and I believe wrote some of his best books after that. Great man, great writer!

Whichever one I'm currently reading.
I hope this lovely man will write more. Not only because I wish him long health and productivity, but because I'm greedy.

There is another book by Dick Francis. It is nonfiction - A Jockey's Life: The Biography of Lester Piggott.

actually I was very pleased to find such a nice website about Dick Francis. It's really great that someone estblished something like this, because you offer a broad overview about his work, what is very useful.
As I'm thinking about writing some kind of Literature reseach essay about Dick Francis for a part of my A-Levels, I'm happy about any English information about his work, because I'm doing this in English.
After all Thanks a lot for this site.
