He has been described as one of the best modern writers, and if you haven’t read any of his books, you really should. He has won many awards for his novels, and many people around the world love his books.
His hobbies are listening to jazz, running, and watching movies. He said that when he is running, he prefers to listen to rock music though. He said this is because the rhythm of rock music is more suitable for running. When he is writing a new novel, he usually writes early in the morning. He then goes running and then listens to music. Perhaps this routine helps him write such amazing novels.
