My Favourite Writer (A. Marinina)

   Reading is one of my hobbies, and that's why I try to use every spare minute to read. I like different kinds of literature.
   I like Russian and foreign, classic and modern literature. I usually read different books: love stories, detective stories or historical novels.
   I want to tell you about my favourite writer, it is Alexandra Marinina. She is considered to be a Russian Queen of detective prose. The works of this author are really interesting.
   In all books there are the same characters and starting a new book you meet old friends. The author used to work as an investigator and she knows how to arouse the readers interest and at the same time writes the facts that could take place.
   Many detective novels by Marinina are translated into foreign languages and foreign readers can compare our writer with Agatha Christie. When I got acquainted with these books I was greatly impressed by the wit and humour.
   The main character, a slender and weak woman, doesn't need to fight with the criminals using judo or something like that. She is very clever and intelligent. Her brain works as a good computer.
   All the actions and characters are described so vividly that I had a feeling of our possible meeting when I visited Moscow last summer. Unfortunately I don't have complete works by Marinina, it's impossible, she's still writing. But I always recommend my friends to read these books.

Мой любимый писатель (А. Маринина)

   Чтение — одно из моих увлечений, и поэтому я стараюсь использовать каждую свободную минуту, чтобы почитать. Я люблю разные жанры литературы.
   Я люблю русскую и зарубежную, классическую и современную литературу. Конечно, я читаю разные книги: любовные рассказы, детективы или исторические романы.
   Я хочу рассказать вам о моей любимой писательнице. Это Александра Маринина. Ее считают королевой русской детективной прозы. Произведения этой писательницы по-настоящему интересны.
   Во всех книгах те же персонажи, и, начиная новую книгу, вы как будто встречаете старых друзей. Писательница раньше работала следователем, и она знает, как вызвать интерес читателя, и в то же время описывает события, которые могут происходить в действительности.
   Многие детективные романы, написанные Марининой, переведены на иностранные языки, и иностранные читатели могут сравнить нашу писательницу с Агатой Кристи. Когда я познакомилась с этими книгами, я была глубоко потрясена их юмором.
   Главному персонажу, утонченной и слабой женщине, не нужно драться с преступниками, используя дзюдо или что-либо подобное. Она очень умна и интеллектуальна. Ее мозг работает, как хороший компьютер.
   Все действия и персонажи описываются так живо, что я ощущала возможность нашей встречи, когда была в Москве прошлым летом. К сожалению, у меня нет полного собрания произведений Марининой, да это не возможно, ведь она все еще пишет. Но я всегда рекомендую моим друзьям почитать эти книги.
