Yes, I am repetetive but my favourite book is The Catcher in the Rye. It's helped me quite a bit - read it especially if you're a teenager.

Read Russian literature! It's beautiful! Most of it, anyhow..

Even though we have a thread like this I'll post again, just because i love literature


The Little Prince - Exupery
Master and Margarita - Bulgakov
The Fall - Camus
The Unbearable Lightness of Being - Kundera
Immortality - Kundera
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - Thompson
Catcher in the Rye - Salinger

These are the absolute faves, tier 2 is much bigger

I've never read this..Actually I've never read any Grishkovec, ahh, shame on me. But I'll improve!

Master and Margarita by Bulgakov is absolutely brilliant. I don't understand how some people find it really difficult to read though.

I've got to add Burgees' A Clockwork Orange for the quirky style of writing..

"Into Thin Air" by John Krakauer - its an account of the May 1996 or 1997 ( cant remember offhand!) disaster on Everest when a massive storm hit the top of the mountain and at least eight people were killed on the same day. Sounds a little gloomy perhaps but it is an amazing account and deals a lot with the ethics of mountain climbing and what drives people to climb mountains and go into the "death zone".

I also really liked The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold and The Perfrect Storm by Sebastian Junger - much better that the George Clooney film honest.

I found that book a bit overrated. I could go on and on about how intially I thought the book was good/average and came to loathe it, but I won't. :innnocent:
