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....
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.
My favourite book would have to be either "Eye Of The Storm" by Jack Higgins or "Red Storm Rising" by Tom Clancy.

Now I have read a lot of books, my favorites: (Try to think that maybe the names are diferent at your country, I'm just making a translation of the names)
The servent of the bones, Ivanhoe, The horse of Troya (J.J. Benitez) The house of Uncle Tom, Resurrection, Death Souls (Gogool), The Harry Potter Saga and the Lord of the rings Saga.
How about yours?
I used to like the asterix books when i was little...and those lion adventure etc. books but lately ive just been reading band autobiographies for some reason.
And silence of the lambs and red dragon but hannibal sucked. Lord of the rings was good too just a little bit long.
Sorry bout 2 posts...
Oh! I almos forgot my favorite writer : Gabriel Garcia Marquez. He won the nobel award on literature...
The first book that I had of him was: "Cien años de soledad" (One hundre years of lonlyness)
Is very big this book, I really enjoi the 5 months that take me to read it...
The Amber Spyglass - Phillip Pullman
Pretty much everything he has ever done - Terry Pratchet
Everything he has done - Douglas Addams
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.
well i really love harry potter books, also lord of the rings trilogy, last but not the least i also like the novel The Godfather (my father brought it to me just last year)
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"

I have read it... in spanish the name is "Los miserables" and infact, is a great Book...
Have you ever read "The picture of Dorian Grey" (I think this is the name on english) Writed by Oscar Wylde?
HARRY POTTER BOOKS SUCKS THEY ARENT LITERATURE THEY ARE SHIT!!!!!!!!!!
FUCK HARRY POTTER AND FUCK JK ROWLING
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.
I read the back of shampoo bottles in the bathroom. And I always read the cereal boxes. YES, this is my last post on the topic.
my favortie is Curious Goerge drinks the stuff under the sink, and we all can;t forget about the classic, Mr Ed takes a trip to the glue factory
