^ Though I've never read anything in that series, I do enjoy graphs, and that one is especially nice.

Best novel ever? Godfather! Maybe not best ever, but I really do enjoy it.

Either way could be considered "right" but I read them in this order (started between the time the original 3rd and 4th books were written) and I don't find it at all confusing.

OH MY HAT!!

The best book in my opinion is "Jock Of The Bushveld" a true classic!

Yes maybe I am a super biased just because it is a legendary South African book but it is a wonderful and true story.

It's about a true story... a Staffordshire Bull Terrier dog and his owner.

It is such a good book.

The staffy's name is "Jock" and it is about how things were back in SA when the 1st settlers arrived here in SA away from the chaos in Europe but that is not so important.

At one amazing and epic point in the book... Jock kills a Baboon... FOR REAL.

It is a true story.

No easy task for a little Staffy to kill a Chacma Baboon hey.

Sadly Jock got kicked in the head by I think it was a Kudu in the end??

Can't remember but then Jock lost his ability to hear because of getting kicked in the head... it was a quite a while ago that I read it but it was really good nonetheless.

It is really an awesome book.

Tells you what it was like back in the old days of SA when we 1st arrived... I really enjoyed it!

11 / 10

Jock of the Bushveld - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Chacma baboon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Kudu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

AMAZING book!

I will never forget it

That is such a good point. Whenever a book can make you forget you are reading and give you that physical reaction, whether its a faster heartbeat or a tear to your eye, just make you actually FEEL something, you know there's something there. I feel the same way about movies, when you can lose yourself like that its a rare and great thing.

That for me would be a 'great book'. Great literature can be a great book but it looks at the technicality of the writing style, the flow of the story etc that author uses. Any metaphors, similes that are use and hidden tones and messages of the story.

True. Enjoyable and technically well written are not necessarily the same thing. ( but can be)

yeah that is what I mean... because certain things make others like a book where as you may hate it... that is a good thing that everyone hates different things..

As I have gotton older I have began to read more and I love old stories and love love stories but like something magical too

To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee.
The book spins along in the easiest of manners, showing us everything that is terrible and wonderful about human beings. A classic.
Lord Valentine's Castle, By Robert Silverberg.
Magnificent fantasy teeming with great characters, brought to life by one of my favourite authors.

This is my vote too. It is such an amazing book (and series).

Of Mice and Men by Steinbeck and One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest by Kessy are two other fantastic books. I think A Clockwork Orange also gets overlooked, it is a very odd read to start, but is very good.

Best book I've ever read is Dune by Frank Herbert.

Second is probably Ring World by Larry Niven, or Foundation by Isaac Asimov.

I agree. One book that is both enjoyable and technically well written is Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children.

I read it because it was supposed to be good (Booker Prize winner) but what I didn't expect was for it to be enjoyable. Well it was great! I would never have guessed it was going to be so good a read. You've got kids born with superpowers! Like X-men in Bombay! (not quite... it is a literary novel, not an action adventure) Entertaining and well written, it also deals with real historical events and issues arising from the birth of India and Pakistan as nations. It's not called the "Booker of Bookers" for nothing. Brilliant. Magic realism at its best.

Lots of things, mostly by Stephen King come to mind. I loves me some King. Especially the Dark Tower series.

King says that all 7 books are all really parts of one long uber novel, so my vote goes to that.

I couldn't narrow it down.

During my teen years it would be Catcher in The Rye by Salinger. I've grown out of that though. I really love a book called The Dark Beyond The Stars by Frank M. Robinson...that may very well come in at number one.

I'm bouncing between J G Ballard and Kerouac this summer. Huge Vonnegut and Bukowski fan, though.

About halfway into Big Sur right now (rereading).

Definitely! Anything that impressed me at a younger age, teens or college (not that long ago), is still awesome to me.

#1: The Scarlet Letter

The imagery and the passion behind the words.
