Thread: what are your favorite novels???

    Nothing can ruin a good book like an essay.

    Hahaha. I know right. I feel like I would have enjoyed our assigned novels a LOT more if we didn't have to analyze them. It can be interesting, but normally, it just ruins the entire book.

    The Road-McCarthy

    Anything Palahniuk because he's never boring...well...I heard Tell-All is terrible.

    I'd vote for all of Jane Austen's novels and Possession by A.S. Byatt. A delicious book!

    I love Palahniuk. With that said Choke was horrible. It was dribble, and didn't really follow any line of thought, and Pygmy was non-sense as well.

    Favorites include Lullaby by Palahniuk, Harry potter (This series really pulled me into reading), Dune, and Journalism written by hunter thompson.

    I loved "Slaughterhouse Five" so much, I read it in like two days. Also "World War Z" was a quick, engaging read. Lastly, "Moby Dick." It was a very long read and I had to put it down for a break, but I eventually got it done and I actually liked it. The dialog was hard to follow, but the narration was awesome.

    I love Vonnegut. Cat's Cradle is one of my favorites. A Clockwork Orange, The Road, 1984...but my favorites change all the time. Just a few off the top of my head.

    I loved Slaugtherhouse five by Vonnegut. So, of course, I chose to read more from him, and to my displeasure, I was sorely disappointed by Breakfast of Champions. I was quickly turned off by his humor and random rambling. I also dislike, how the fourth wall was broken so much, and how the characters reacted to the situations they found themselves entwined in. Overall, I was really sad about the experience of the book. Maybe someday I will run my fingers through another Kurt book, but it may be awhile yet.
