I love Murakami! The Elephant Vanishes is awesome.

My favourite book at the moment is "Sophie's World" by Jostein Gaarder, it covers the history of western philosophical thought in easy to read, entertaining form. ^ ah, someone's got there before me...

I also like;
Solzhenisyn - One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich
Lee - To Kill a Mockingbird
Roy - The God of Small Things
Gladwell - The Tipping Point
Ramachandran - Phantoms in the Brain
and
Douglas Adams - The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (A Trilogy in Five Parts)

My latest favorite is Harry Potter. J.K. Rowling has such an amazing imagination.

I also enjoyed Eragon - Christopher Paolini

I've been reading a lot of books by various authors from my library.. Christian-Romance/Historical series'. Too many read at this point to name a favorite of them.

Forgive me, i really don't read at all. Any recommendations for a 14 year old kid with a short attention span?


You might enjoy either Harry Potter or Eragon, if you haven't already read them at all. Hope that helps.

These lists made me feel feel so nostalgic, especially the Redwall and Watership Down ones.

Lord of the Flies is my fav. Followed by The Giver, Catcher In the Rye, Anthem, The Great Gatsby, and all those classics that keep it real.(don't always have happy-go-lucky stories)

I saw the "1984" movie and it was awesome. So did the Dune movies.

Lord of the Flies just makes me sick... Theres nothing wrong with the book, I just had to read it in school, twice, where we over analyzed it to death. And had to watch both movie versions, and do several essays and presentations on it. The concept was interesting, I disagreed with the moral book, but it was an interesting read.

I also like Fahrenheit 451 and 1984, the twists in reality. Its always enjoyable to read a book that makes you think.
