Thread: what are your favorite novels???

  1. #41
    If I had a favourite novel then based on Oscar Wilde's observation I would have read it more than once, but I don't recollect reading any novel more than once although I do harbour intentions in respect of some which so far I've not fulfilled. Maybe I just haven't read my favourite novel at all yet. One day I'll find it. I don't have a scale against which to rate the rest.

    'There has to be some give and take.' If I can take my time I'm willing to give it.
    'The most difficult criticism that a writer has to comprehend is silence.' So speak up.

    If it isn't by Poe, Doyle, Hammett, Chandler, MacDonald, Connolly, Leonard, Silva, or the like, I probably haven't read it. However, since I've been on this site I have been branching out into other genres. Historical fiction/fantasy intrigues me the most. Favorite? Probably the Maltese Falcon.

    If I had to pick a favorite, I'd have to say The Dark Tower series by Stephen King. It was interesting to read something that what written over the span of so many years, and tied into so many other stories.

    A Tale of Two Cities
    White Fang
    The Sea Wolf
    Jane Eyre
    Mutiny on the Bounty
    The Gulag Archipelago
    ...Huckleberry Finn
    Red October
    The Onion Field
    Hobbit & LOTR

    I could keep going, so many favorites, the list would likely differ an hour from now

    How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank!
    Here will we sit, and let the sounds of music
    Creep into our ears: soft stillness and the night
    Become the touches of sweet harmony.

    Sorry about how I've just written the above. I don't know why it's done that. (Ignore this, I've just edited it so it looks good now)

    I really enjoyed reading Patricia Cornwell's series of books about her heroine Kay Scarpetta. It seemed like there was no case she couldn't solve or anything she couldn't do.
