This book, but the movie made me lose all respect.

But in all seriousness:



The Thief of Always. And this gives me an idea for a thread.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

The Stand is awesome, I read the unabridged version. 1300 pages, but good.

Divine Comedy - Amazing
House of Seven Gables also great.
Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.

Pretty much any of Stephen King's books. I also really liked The Damnation Game by Clive Barker. And for anyone who enjoys reading books like that, I STRONGLY suggest getting Carrion Comfort by Dan Simmons, or Children of the Night. Both very great books.

You know a music scene is fucked up when it becomes difficult to keep track of who killed who, who committed suicide and who alledgedly engaged in cannibalism.

It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.

Franny and Zooey (which I'm finishing up now), Nine Stories, and Catcher in the Rye. All of which are by J.D. Salinger. I totally dig his writing.

I really like Poe's short stories too, and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. The first time I read it right after eighth grade, I thought it was crap cuz I didn't really understand it. But once I had to reread it again for English, it was totally different.

Bound for glory
Watchmen (A MUST READ)

I couldnt stand catcher in the Rye, I read it a few months back and found it very overrated.

I was gonna read some of the Dark Tower series (Stephen King right?) But I only have the 4th one :/ seems a bit daft to start there lol. So I've just started reading Star Maker by Olaf Stapledon instead. Oh and btw, Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy ftw. And Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy was fantastic.

A friend of mine is reading that, and it freaks him out so much that he keeps waking up in the night with horrible thoughts. He's also measured his room because of it.

Anyway, for me it would be Wizards First Rule and Das Parfum.

^^ Duno, he just said it was really creepy, the different ways that the book was written, and for some reason it just had a big impact on him. I don't think he's finished with it yet.

The Hobbit or anything else by Tolkien. Tom Bombadill and Beorn are just too cool for school!

Far too many to name, but one recently read one - Uriel's Machine - Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas.

Very interesting read indeed.

On The Road and anything by JK, anything by Hunter S Thomson, any Ginsberg poetry, Naked Lunch by Bill Burroughs etc. King of the Beats and all his followers. Also Acid Test.

Naked Lunch by Bill Burroughs etc.



If you managed to read that book from beginning to end, you're cool enough to hang with me. Most people I know just read a few pages and go "what the f*** is this"?

Harry Potter!
Wheel of Time
His Dark Materials trilogy
And the Dark Tower series, although books 5-7 were TERRIBLE. I just had to know how it ended.

I started reading the Lost Leaves of the Necronomicon and Book 1 of the Greater Key of Solomon not long ago.

does anyone know any book that has been released just recently, and has the capability to make the reader shit bricks?
