Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep: Hated it as a kid, read it about once a year now, fantastic book

Birdsong: For everyone who has family who made the ultimate sacrifice during wartime

Dispatches: As close as you'll get to being in 'Nam

Frankenstein: classic

The End of Eternity: Not a classic as such, but an amazing idea related to time travel and the consequences of it

Neuromancer: The atmosphere drips off the pages

Great thread.

Green Eggs and Ham. No lie. I read that book to all my nieces and nephews, and I've loved it since I was very little.

I'm going to check out some of the other books listed in this thread (for myself, not the kids)

Started reading 1984 after reading this thread. So far it is great and I will be reading more Orwell when I am done.

Also bought One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest. I have always wanted to see the movie, I figure I will read the book first and finally watch the movie. As always I am sure the book is better than the movie but I have a theory on that.

If I had to honestly say my favorite book... The DaVinci Code - Dan Brown and Angels and Demons by Dan Brown. the books just sucked me in. I read each in one night (all nighters). Great books.

Lords of Discipline

Had to read it for a grade 11 English class. Enjoyed it so much I went out and bought my own copy and read it probably a half dozen times by now.

Just read Metro 2033, it was awesome. Played the game first, it was great too but the book is amazing. Cant wait to get my hands on Metro 2034.

Finnish book "ammattina vankikarkuri" is my favorites too. It's written by Jan Jalutsin, he was the most wanted fugitive in northern europe for a while. It's basically his life story. Robbed banks, money transports etc. Really interesting book.

And last, Madventures books.

For me it has to be the two books that got me started as a fanatical reader.

Hitch hikers guide to the galaxy

Lord of the rings


Both of those books I have a crazy sweet spot for.

Need to add Anthony Beevor's books, Stalingrad, Berlin 1945 and World War 2.

Oh and Harry Potters. Because fuck, yer a wizard Harry.

Michael Moorcock has many fine series, see;

1. Dancers At The End of Time
2. Elric of Melnibone
3. The Runestaff

Most of his work was updated and reissued in large omnibus volumes, I didn't like them. Look for the single volume DAW issues. 160 pages of action. Good stuff.
