Surprise of 2008: Terry Pratchett's Discworld series. I hadn't heard much of Discworld before I read this book, but I was immediately hooked. In the near future I forsee many more Discworld books.
Disappointement of 2008: The Cauldron by Colin Forbes. What a load of bullocks. There isn't a thing about this book that I would recommend.

Surprise of 2009: The Roaches have no King. Funny, adventurous and with a few life lessons to spare!
Disappointement of 2009: The Va Dinci Cod. It seems as if the write knew only one joke he thought was funny and repeated it endlessly.

Surprise of 2010: Doomsday book. I really enjoyed reading it. The book reminded me of Crusade in Jeans (Kruistocht in spijkerbroek) by Thea Beckman, which I loved reading when I was a teenager. (Honorary mentions go to Night Watch and Anansi Boys.)Disappointement of 2010: I had high hopes for The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, but these high hopes weren't met. It could have been so much better and now that I've read it I don't understand the hype.
