What is everyone's favorite book?

Post by Halifax » Thu Apr 07, 2005 8:39 pm

Here are my favorite books.

Terry Pratchett, Discworld! Yay!
Robert Jordan, The Wheel of Time
Terry Goodkind, The Sword of Truth
I found the Halo books to be quite good for adaptations
I also like to read about physics and astronomy. My favorite authors are probably also the most popular, Brian Greene and John Gribbin.

What are some of yours?

The only fantasies I like is ancient books like the odessy, Star Wars (well could be SF too.), and Myths.

Other than that I don't like fansties that much.

The Wheel of Time

without a doubt.

I like other books aswell, but TWOT just has fork everything.

Sci-Fi wise I love Asimov and Anne McCaffrey's Pern shit. I do like Harry Potter, but I hate everyone else who does, I like Hitch-hikers guide, and despise the people who talk about how funny it is and have only read a bit, I like the His Dark Materials trilogy too... But I don't really read books anymore, too much school... I've got Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Hitch Hikers, His Dark Materials and Hp on tape though, and I listen to them allot. Its funny, those four were all voted in the top five books by british authors last year...

GOD what a horribly disjointed response :oops:
