What's your favorite book? Why?
Mine is probably Metro 2033.
Because of the characters and the world. It takes place in the metro of Moskva after a nuclear war. The character; Artiom develops as he travels the dark underground in search of help for his station that is being overrun by mutatns from the surface.

So what are you guys favorite books? Any one you would recommend?

lol, that totally counts. XD

One of my favorite books is The Phantom Tollbooth. Something about how it screws common sayings and then makes complete sense of them. I've read it probably five times by now.

And 'cause Eps put Waldo up there, I'll put this here:



There is simply something extraordinary about seeing landscapes created out of pencils, hotdogs, razors, mousetraps, beads, and oh so much more. I've even got a Look-Alikes puzzle hanging on my wall! :D

One of my fave books to read is the Percy Jackson series. Mainly cause I keep reading them over and over again lol. If I was to suggest any book, mine would be Terry Pratchett's I Shall Wear Midnight. happy.

My favorite book series so far is Pendragon by D.J. MacHale. I also loved the Percy Jackson series (hated the movie, though) and the Gatekeepers series by Anthony Horowitz.

A rough count suggests that I have read over 30 novels in general memory. My favourites include the following series': The Seventh Tower books, Abhorsen trilogy, Keys to the Kingdom series (all of which written by Garth Nix), The Scarecrow and Jack West books (Matthew Reilly), the increasingly inaccurately named Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Douglas Adams, with the exclusion of the last book), and the Inheritance series (Christopher Paolini).

Quite a lot, hey?

@Mitch95: I agree. The movie sucked as I could easily spot tons of mistakes. -_____-

They're also called the Inheritance Cycle. I don't really get it, it doesn't seem like a story that loops.

I've had to read a bunch of books for my English Class, like Animal Farm and The Importance of being Earnest. In fact, right now I'm supposed to read Romulus, My Father.

However, this is the only book so far which I enjoyed reading:



I don't think any of you have heard of it, though.

No, never heard of it. But Animal Farm scarred my older sister for life, you know, along with The War of the Worlds musical and other miscellaneous titles.

Which reminds me, I also enjoyed reading WOTW; it provided a different reading experience. It wasn't nearly as descriptive as I would have liked, and it was written in first person, so the greatest challenge was trying to keep up with what Wells was writing about. I think I missed a bit in the middle anyway. Reading the book made it easier to pick out plot holes in the second of two movies based on the book.

For whatever reason, Kitty's post reminded me of another one of my favorite books: The Giver. It was my introduction to utopian/dystopian societies, and it painted a very memorable world. It was also the first book that I couldn't put down; I read seventeen chapters the night that it was assigned.

Well I've read several novels too. Most favorable of the dystopians I've read is William Gibbsons Neuromancer, one of the first cyberpunk/dystopian novels.
I've also read the Inheritance, Percy Jackson and the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
I've also read HG Well's Timemachine, though not WOTW. And one made by Terry Pratchet, I have a friend that enjoys his books quite much.
I've pretty much read anything that have something to do with fantasy or sci-fi. Including Nick Perumov.
And Alistair Reynold's Terminal World. That's a really epic book.
But I refuse to read Twilight. I've tried and... Didn't like it. At all.

EDIT: Oh yeah... Any one read something from Lovecraft? You know Cthulhu...?

I want to read H.G Wells' The Island of Dr. Moreau, at some point. But right now I'm picking my way through Sherlock Holmes The House of Silk. And after that I've decided I would read A Series of Unfortunate Events.

Congo by Michael Crichton

Pretty much any Michael Crichton book is amazing. He even managed to make The Great Train Robbery exciting. Most of the time, I can't read more than twenty pages of a book without losing focus, but I read through the 400-page Congo in just one weekend. I highly recommend it.

Yes, do read the Hunger Games. It is oh so much better than "those Twilight books". They do pretty much everything right with all of the aspects of the story, and while a lot of people disliked the last book, it was my personal favorite.

I've only seen the Hunger Games movie, and to my own disgrace I was forced into watching Breaking Dawn part 1, and they are easily compared. Hunger Games gets points for being a good movie while Breaking Dawn made me laugh my head off at what it was trying to accomplish.

Watching the movie led me to believe that the Bella woman is indeed a necrophiliac. There was an uncomfortable necrophiliac scene, and all throughout the movie I was cracking jokes to my friends. Long before that, my family and I sat down and watched the entire first Twilight movie just to make fun of it and point out its flaws.

But the books would probably be terrible.

First, My family does that all the time. We make fun of everything, from King Kong to Wanted.
Except Inception. Don't dare to make fun of Inception. *add funny picture here*

Second, I ccan give you the short version of Twilight's first books. I didn't even have to read them.
Bella; Look he's a vampire, I'm in love with him Happy. . No, the vampire left. :(
Look he's a werewulf! I'm in love with him Happy. . The vampire came back, who should I be in love with? O_o
I chose the vampire.
The rest is just filler.

Unfortunately, during the movie Breaking Dawn, Bella did not die giving birth to vampire-human hybrid baby she foolishly conceives. My sister told me that in the book it ate its way out of her abdomen and killed her, but she lives on in the movie. This is probably how the director managed to pull another movie out of the series.
