asherguy: Dear readers in wireclub
I have this opportunity where I can get as much books as I can read and I have got alot and I am still can get more but I can't think of more books that are good to read and this is where I need everyone's help.
I would really appreciate if anyone who reads this subject would write a title of a book that they read or just heard of one that is good and it can be anything from non-fiction to fiction or bioagraphy or anything.
Thanx a million
plain_pat: Well, my favorite books are 'The Catcher in the Rye' by J.D Salinger and 'Catch 22' by Joseph Heller, I hiiighly recomend you check them out
gsdfargo: Hi, I don't know if this is my "favorite book", but I recently completed "Eight White Nights" by Andre Aciman. This book was absolutely amazing. Let me preface this by saying...not much happens in this book...well, thats not exactly true, alot hapens but it does not take the form of "action". Like the previous works by Mr. Aciman that I have read the action that DOES take place is internal, in fact, there is very little dialogue in this book either. It is however a master work of prose. There are so many remarkable sentences in this book, that I found myself "highlighting" and "underlining" in a book of fiction! You might want to check out his memoir "Out of Egypt", also a fantastic read.
Hey...if you get a chance let me knoe some of YOUR favorite reads! I don't own a TV and am retired so pretty much all I do is read...I'd love to share book "reviews" with you. My name is Mike and my email is gsdfargo@y****.com . Hope to hear from you! Regards!
thx for ur nice subject and to me the book that I really loved it and definitely you will love it it's "The Pearl"
I think it's for John Steinbeck.
and as Bitter mentioned"The Secret" I heard some 1 said that it's brilliant.
okay bye bro...
Loremae: I have about a million favourite books... but if I had to name just one, I would say that the book "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand is a definite. Its a political book about Capitalism. Quite thought provoking, even if (like me) your not a political person at all.
It can be summed up in the title... what would happen if Atlas (meaning the creators, builders and doers) in our world shrugged and stopped creating, building and doing.
Its a massive read, and can sometimes be a bit difficult to find, but it is well worth it.
If your looking for something a bit more light hearted, Magician (and the follow on books) by Raymond E Feist is a must in any Fantasy readers bookcase.
Erde: Alchemist by Coelco (you can even found audio book in the Internet);
Jonathan The seagull; O.Wild Tales
pamelaarosee: The Spanish Duke's Virgin Bride by Chantelle Shaw is one of my favourite books. it's got romance with a little bit of comedy too.
The_Boot: If we're talking fiction then its got to be The Bible, its got everything, death, genocide, rape, talking snakes, incest, sodomy, supernatural beings and hobbits!
For non-fiction i liked 'How to make love like a Pornostar - the biography of Jenna Jameson'
beamer67ca: Confessions of an Economic Hit Man by John Perkins. Not my favorite book but an interesting read non the less. Definitely an eye opener.
kisskisscake: One book that has impressed me particularly of late is The Life of Pi. It is just such a wonderful book. I was sad to finish it. I really enjoy autobiographies and biographies and I've just finished reading Angelina Jolie's biography by Andrew Morton. It was well researched and very well written. I have always thought her a particularly beautiful woman ( as of course do most people ) but I had read nasty things about her. This book exposes her life and her faults and foibles, but wow! is she an incredible woman. I love her! She has done so much humanitarian work and yet she remains ever so humble. I don't care what the gossip rags say about this woman, I for one think she is the most amazing being. Another book I recently enjoyed was High Society by Ben Elton. He is so very funny and observant of human beings idiosyncracies . As is typical of Ben Elton's style, it is a little hard to get into at first because he builds the ground work and then weaves the story from there. It was absolutely delicious and for some reason the main character of the book to me, was Robbie Williams. That was how I pictured this guy and will do 'til the day I die. Loved it, loved it, loved it.
StuckInTheSixties: "The Lion's Paw" by Robb White.
It's sort of a children's book, an adventure story for young readers. It's about three runaway kids in Florida during the time of World War II.
I read it at 12 or 13, and it turned me into a book reader. It's the book that made me realize just how entertaining it could be to have your imagination stimulated by the printed word.
The book has a very devoted cult following of many people who had the same experience that I did. First printings in good condition fetch hundreds, even thousands of dollars. I just did a quick check of Amazon, and of ninety reviews, 88 were five-stars and one was four-stars. There was a single one-star review, but the "reviewer" was someone who hadn't read the book and was whining that none of the other reviewers had provided the kind of information he needed to decide on a purchase.
kisskisscake: thanks stuck in the 60's ( sometimes I suspect I am too! ) I am going to get that book. I have never even heard of it before....gee! how ignorant am I? Ciao for now, I'm off to try and find it. x
kisskisscake: The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupery. A beautiful yet simple book that one can reread time and time again.
daydreams: good question, i always sway with Thoreau's Walden . I learned a lot from Henry David " How vain is it to sit down and write when you have not stood up to live." he was just a decent man and decent thinker..
Erde: I read Little Prince constantly, in all languages I know 2 more books worth it is Paolo Coelcho " Alchemist " and R. Bach " Johanatan Livingston The Seagull" ...there are a lot of good books...like a lot of good music.
