I am very disappointed that 50 Shades is considered to be good.... I've read it and as a guy I can and have written better smut from a woman's point of view. I find that a bit sad and disturbing....... It is poorly written, stops ands stutters, and for being written by a woman who is an executive for a television production company, extremely lacking gramatic quality.
I read for enjoyment, I don't read to depress myself.... although truly good books can bring tears to the eyes and a heavy heart. I am a huge Clive Cussler fan especially his early works. Raise the Titanic, Night Probe, and all the others. But I lean towards sci-fi and some fantasy. Jim Butcher's assorted works are pure joy to read. GO HARRY! We ain't talking that wimpy magician Potter but a true mage in modern times.there are so many Great books and authors out there..... Also Steven Kings Dark Tower series with all its devious little twists and turns....The Classics.... well they are classics for a reason although with most I don't know why. William Shakespeare's collected works are great to read IF YOU ARE NOT LOOKING FOR HIDDEN MEANINGS THAT EDUCATOR"S INSIST ARE THERE. Sorry to disappoint them he wrote them in the way he did because they told amazing stories and had depth on their own and are relevant even today. The hidden meanings may be there (or not... I still have yet to see most of what my English and Literary teachers insist is there) but what do they mean to todays world?
Most of the books listed in this thread are at the worst good reads...

If I may add onto my father's post, the books based on video games like the Halo series(It's pretty big), Hellgate:London, Ghost Recon, Assassin's Creed, etc. are pretty good and have relevance to the story of the game. What I've read of them, I found them to be very good and enjoyable. Yes, there were a few teary-eyed moments and moments where I felt pissed-off at a character in the book.


That's all I got to add.

There are a lot of really great books. Since I'm into Hemingway, I would say The Old Man and the Sea and A Moveable Feast.

You may also want to check out a few plays like Hamlet and A Midsummer Nights' Dream.

"The Outsiders" by S.E. Hinton.

I know it's probably a book everyone had to read in school, but I genuinely liked it. It's my favorite book and if you actually get into it then it's more enjoyable. I suggest any of S.E. Hinton's books.

Also "Bound" (it's basically Chinese Cinderella) and "Hush" by Donna Jo Napoli.
