I want to consider Tom Clancy, and Tolkein as some of the best ever....but for my money, the novle "Snow Crash" by Neal Stephonson is the best book ever. And one more thing.

FUCK HARRY POTTER

The Shining, Hearts in Atlantis, and Hannibal are all my favorite books I have read thus far. Because of damn college I don't have a chance to read anything good anymore...

ok, as I promised, now I'll go into some more details:

I already said I like Jules Verne, works like "fifteen year old captain", :the sons of captain Grant", "From the Earth to the moon", "2000 leagues of underwater vojage", "two years of vacations", "around the world in 80 days" and many more.

other I remember reading include the three musketeers, Moby dick, treasure island, the misterious island, Gulliver travels....

recent books?
the novelization of the movie "Spiderman", also XxX (Vin Diesel), "KIM", by rudyard kipling (this one is extremely good, makes you think about life and gives you a better understanding of our purpose here on earth, I strongly recomd you to find it and read it), some of the "goosebumps" series, and many more that I don't remember right now.

There are some excellent books out there, the Lord of the rings trilogy was good but its prelude the Silmarillion was way better in my thoughts. Andy Mcnab has a few good books out Bravo 2 Zero is awesome, so are most of Stephen Kings books but my fave of his has got to be The Dark Tower books there are 4 so far and i cant wait till the rest come out.

My favorite Book is:
"Lord Of the Dead" by: Tom Holland.

It suggests that Lord Byron (the poet) never really died, but lived on as a Vampire. It shows his trek from his humanity, through his savage years, to his current living quarters in New York.
Its a really good book, if your into vamps...

Well... Maybe all the people that had post here, had read the Harry Potter's books... and The lord of the rings books...

I was wondering if there's a crew or club about lord of the rings...

Well, all you should read: "The server of the bones" is a really good book, writed by Anne Rice, the same woman that wrote "Intervew with a vampire"

Mine is "Les Miserables" by Victor Hugo.....
I'm not sure, but that's the name the book goes by...
I mean, it was translated in Finland, making it "Kurjat", but some1 told me that if u want to read it in the U.S.A or practicly anywhere, it is "Les Miserables"...

But, perhaps u should check "The Miserables"

Just as a wonder has anyone actually read The Silmarillion bu John Ronald Ruel Tolkein as it is a master class. It was described as "The Bible for Middle-Earth", by The Daily Herald.

Stephen King(/Richard Bachman) and Dean Koontz are both good authors. I like the "Chronicles Of Thomas Covenant The Unbeliever", but the author's name escapes me right now. "Beaches" and "Of Mice and Men" are good for a cry. Hmmm... the Bible is actually a good read... especially the New Testament. And I really like the comic strip "Get Fuzzy" hehe.

Oops... forgot to mention the "Vampire Chronicles" series, by Anne Rice. A REALLY great sci-fi/fantasy book called "Weaveworld" that I read ages ago and would love to be able to find again. I like movies that could be B-flicks, with vampires and werewolves. Hmmm... me like to read.
