whats the title of ur fav book?? (Page 2)
Metaphorguy: The Alchemist was the biggest waste of my time to read. It was so simplistic and it pandered to the bulging hope and dreams of people who dream and never act. I'm an intellectual and enjoy books that make me view things differently or question my beliefs. I've read Walden, Atlas Shrugged, and Alchemist, but these aren't part of my favorite books. I'd have to say one of my most favorite books that I've picked up is Guns, Germs, and Steel by Jared Diamond. He explains thousands of years of history in a very detailed manner and explains how Europeans came to dominate the Western world. It is one of the most enjoyable reads I've read and well worth a pulitzer prize. I've also gone on to read another one of his books. I won't list all the scientific, philosophical, historical, and other profound works I've read throughout my life since it would bore everyone to sleep, but I can say that I've read some of the best books ever written and my experience with novels has been nothing but fantastic.
anakim: Just one? Hmmm....I have to say every Harry Potter book ever written. Those books gave me an escape from reality, if only for a minute
Brit Chick: The Kite Runner. To Kill a Mocking Bird. Animal Farm. Anything by Stephen King before the 1990's (before he got complacent).
ISellBaitt: Here are a couple of my favorites (at the moment that is):
- Post Office by Charles Bukowski (Comedy)
- The Experiment by John Darnton (Science Fiction)
- Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan (Love/Adventure)
- White Oleander by Janet Fitch (Coming of Age)
- Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher (Coming of Age/Suicide)
- Lullabies for Little Criminals by Heather O'Neil (Coming of Age/Addiction).
These books are all wonderful ! I really hope you get the chance to read them sometime !
Metaphorguy: I just read my post and I sound like a complete asshole lol. Well at least everyone knows the truth now haha.
mountlife: i like all the works of nicholas sparks.. his 'the last song' just made me smile, tear, laugh n recall all my memories with my dad.. authors whom got my attention are plenty... rani manicka whom from the east is one of them. her rice mother, touching earth are intriguing..beautiful diversity!
XiNfAmOuSxInSaNiTyX: Hmm.. my favorite book keeps changing throughout the course of time so as of recently it's got to be Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. It's just wow and so different from other trilogies I've read!! But if you're going for more classic and less modern, definitely The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón!!
nanat_001: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey. A very interesting and eye opening read. If you are into symbolism in novels, this one is really great. Happy reading
vincent_hanna: I really enjoyed "Fight Club" and also all books by Hunter S. Thompson ( my favs are "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" and "The Rum Diary".
LovetheNight: I don't have a fav. I read too much. I really enjoyed the book called street love. It's a hip hop remade Romeo and Juliet. It's more of a rap than a poem book, but a more intertaning version of the classic love story.
Aryaa: From the previous posts....the books I have read are
1. The Alchemist - By Paulo Coelho---- I liked it.
2. The Secret- It is nice too...basically orient philosophy simplified for west to understand.
3. The Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen -- liked it very much....beautiful love story.
Few books I liked very very much...
1. Bhagwat Geeta ....For me, nothing in this world of literature compared to it.
2. All books by Mark Twain --- especially, The adventures of Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn...
3. The Stories of Real Men - Zori Balayan...an armenian writer.
4. Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte [love story]
5. Les Miserables - By VIctor Hugo
So many more....
