I'm a huge fan of Darren Shan, and have read all of his books that were released in the United States. I first read Cirque du Freak when I was in the Sixth Grade, after my friend Robert and History teacher Mr. Nicalosi recommened it. My friend Franklin and I both then borrowed the first two books from the library. After that, I set myself to collecting all of Darren's books, and even got most of my collection signed two years ago when he visited New York! I'll put a picture of one of them up if I have time.
Not sure yet.
