David Benioff is probably best known for his work as a screenplay writer (25th Hour, Stay, Troy [yes, that one’s not to his honour], The Kite Runner and the upcoming Wolverine). But 25th Hour is actually based upon a novel written by him and that’s what I read. [He’s not at all known for his looks but he should be… see.]
The novel is rather short and a quick read. The film is rather literal in it’s making (I think, it’s been a while since I’ve seen it), I like that. I read it in German and the translation is very good. There wasn’t even one time that I thought “god dammit, where’s the editor?”.
To get a glimpse of the style you can have a look at K.’s.
I like his characters and the book made me cry. (I didn’t expect that, as I knew the ending. Obviously, that didn’t matter.)
I would like Benioff to write another novel. I would definitely read it.
