Amazing isn't the right word, but it's the first one that comes to mind. Actually I'd say it was pretty damn cool, maybe not amazing, but you know, that's, like, just my opinion, man.ebyworx said:Choke by Chuck Palahniuk was amazing, I read it in about 8 hours.

I especially enjoyed the reverse dichotome (sp?) in that book b/t light and darkness.Bortaz said:Moby Dick, by Herman Melville
Heart Of Darkness, by Josef Conrad
The Invisible Man was a pretty great bookRius666 said:I especially enjoyed the reverse dichotome (sp?) in that book b/t light and darkness.
As for my nominations I liked Lord of the FLIES by William Golding, Band of Brothers by Stephen Ambrose, ALL of the fictional Michael Crichton books I've read so far (Rising Sun, all the Jurassic Parks, Sphere, Congo, Terminal Man, Airframe, Disclosure), Fahrenheit 451, The Invisible Man (not the orsen wells book, which is just titled Invisible Man), Animal Farm, 1984, and some others that I can't think of at the moment.
I read it three times and loved it. The way he changes the style to create symbolism always leaves me in awe. I'm the only guy I know who actually likes that book.Necrolestes said:The horror, the horror! How could you even get THROUGH that book (it was the hardest 80+ pages I ever had to read...on the flip side, it took me three days to read through Lord of the Rings). As difficult as it was for me to get through the book, I happen to agree with you Bortaz that Heart of Darkness has a terrific message for the world and overall is a good read.
*cries* That is such a good selection.Ev_ said:My top 3:
Lord of the Rings (trilogy)
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (series)
Absolutely. I couldn't put it down. I've got "Tales From Watership Down" in my stack of books to read. Have you read that?Savage said:I'm so glad someone else loves Watership down, it's such a fantastic book.
