Was it you who talked about Rene Barjavel's The Ice People several years back here?

I ended up convincing a friend to buy a second hand copy off some foreign Amazon site (they were not active in India then and still don't sell second hand books) and bring it to me the next time they came. I rather enjoyed it, although the ending was sad. So thanks a lot for the (much) earlier recommendation.

I also liked:
Clifford Simak - City.
Arthur C Clarke - Rendezvous with Rama.
Hal Clement - Mission of Gravity.
Cheers,
Vikram.
