    Post Your Favorite Books?

    This is sort of a companion to the Authors thread, but since it's rare to like every single book an author writes, I thought perhaps we could list our favorite books/stories, including *one-hit wonders* so to speak?

    Mine would be:
    East of Eden (Steinbeck)
    Frankenstein (Shelley)
    Gulliver's Travels (Swift)
    Tess of the D'Urbervilles (Hardy)
    The Mysterious Stranger (Twain)
    The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (Twain)
    Call of the Wild and White Fang (London)
    The Great Gatsby (Fitzgerald)
    The Catcher in the Rye (Salinger)
    1984 (Orwell)
    Brave New World (Huxley)
    Crime and Punishment (Dostoevskii)

    I don't read much fiction, but let's see.

    "Watership Down" - Richard Adams
    "The Great and Secret Show" - Clive Barker
    "Everville" - Clive Barker
    "Lord of the Rings" (Fellowship/Two Towers/Return of the King) - J.R.R. Tolkien
    "Paradise Lost" - John Milton

    Wow, that's all I could come up with.

    This is a hard one, but here's my start:

    Charlotte's Web by E.B. White
    Around The World in 80 Days by Jules Verne
    Master and Commander by Patrick O'Brian
    The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
    Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
    Red Odyssey by Marat Akchurin
    The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner
    The Stone Bull by Phyllis Whitney
    A Man in Full by Tom Wolfe
    Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt
    The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain
    The Little Sister by Raymond Chandler
    The A to Z Encyclopedia of Serial Killers by Harold Schechter
    The Black Arts by Richard Cavendish


    I prefer fiction to non-fiction.

    Edit: I can't believe I forgot Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte...

    Go Ask Alice — Anonymous (It's based on an actual real-life diary of a girl from the 1970's who became a drug addict when one of her "friends" slipped LSD into her drink without her knowing it. A very sad occurance indeed.)

    I have a thing for dystopian fiction...
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream at night, in the dusky recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams, with open eyes, to make it possible.

    Everyone seems to agree that Brave New World is a great book. I read it back in high school and I was blown away.

    I thought this was a thread about 'stories' rather than non-fiction. doh.

    Here are some non-fiction books I like.
    "The Tarantula Keepers Guide" - Stanely A. Schultz
    "Scorpions" - Manny Rubio
    "A Synopsis of the North American Centipedes of the Order Scolopendramorpha (Chilopoda) - Dr. Rowland M. Shelley
    "The Last Victim" - Jason Moss
    "The Aryan Race" - Charles Morris
    "In Search of the Indo-Europeans" - J.P. Mallory
    "The Holotropic Mind" - Dr. Stanislav Grof
    "Transformation" - Whitley Strieber
    "The Book of Thoth" - Aleister Crowley
    "Magick Without Tears" - Aleister Crowley
    "Pacts with the Devil" - S. Jason Black
    "The Golden Dawn" - Israel Regardie (editor)
    "Animal Speak" - Ted Andrews
    "Animal Wise" - Ted Andrews

    And to fiction, add anything by H.P. Lovecraft, but especially the following:

    "The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath"
    "The Colour Out of Space"
    "The Dunwich Horror"
    "The Dreams in the Witch House"
    "The Shadow Over Innsmouth"
    "The Whisperer in Darkness"

    I was thinking of Dickens, Scathach, but of the ones I had in mind, he just didn't make my cut. Sorry.
