mans search for meaning, the little prince, da vinci code, a child called “it”, deltora quest series, the chrysalids, day of the triffids, and some others. why? they make me think.
Wheel of Time series because the world and characters are so developed that it doesnt need a theme because its just another world and ours doesnt have a theme so why should that one?
Stephen king!! Especially when he wrote as richard bachman. My total faves are the running man because i feel like, the world is turning into that sadly, too many reality shows etc. , exploitation. Also “the long walk”. & Thinner, i love those books.
I’m kinda obsessed with stephen king and i love almost all of his books except a few.
I love reading lobsang rampa as well. The dimension theories. Anddd Mein Kampf.
yes i love reading.
i liked that book where a man could travel through dimensions and time and ultimately meets a female version of himself lol anyone know what im talkin about?
Windsinger, its just epic, i love it :D
Jeez, 32 views and only 4 answers. I think this says something about how little people read.
Sebastian Faulks “Birdsong”.
I challenge anyone to read it and not be moved.
Gosh! This is impossible. I read so many different types of books I don’t know if I can name a favorite. I enjoy the classics. Though complex, they are so beautifully written. I love the Bronte sisters and also Jane Austin. Which is odd, because I hate current romance novels. Ugh! I suppose I like Austin’s work b/c most of her books deal with other issues besides, “is this girl going to get with this guy and at what point/how frequently are they gonna sleep together.” My favorite by Jane Austin is “Pride and Prejudice”. I like something that will challenge me in one way or another, and I never read the same type of book twice in a row. I guess I don’t have a favorite book, I just enjoy reading. :)

Good omens by terry prattchett and Neil gaimen (however you spell that) is one of my favourites. Most discworld books actually. Stephen fry - making history is bizarre but good.
You read just like me! I think I have every Pratchett book but there are so many it’s hard to tell since there are so many.
If you are interested in Terry Pratchett, I recommend listening to his fascinating lecture “Shaking Hands with Death”.
Here is a link to it on youtube. There are 6 parts in total I think…
It is very thought-provoking and gives a fascinating insight into his philosphy on life and death.
