Some of the books I've read recently and loved are:

- A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
Anyone feeling a malenky bit poogly? I love dystopias.

- Pilgrim by Timothy Findley
An intriguing Jungian tale (hell, he's a chief character). Has Pilgrim really lived forever?

- The World According to Garp by John Irving
An absolute delight to read. Garp is an unforgettable character, and after seeing the movie will forever be remembered as Robin Williams.

- Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
It's hard not to feel sorry for poor Humbert Humbert. Nabokov's prose is lyrical and enthralling.

- 1984 by George Orwell
Did I mention I love dystopias? The finest of them all!

-The Trial by Franz Kafka
Poor, poor Joseph K. Imagine being arrested and not told the crime. My theory is that he's gay, but that's entirely an opinion call.

- Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Yes, I read it for school, but it was a good read nonetheless.

-The PowerBook by Jeannette Winterson
I'm not entirely sure I loved this book, but I certainly enjoyed it. The epitome of postmodern narrative forms.

Oh I see.

So do I! Hehe

The first one was very good, funny yet adventurous and exciting. Very clever.

I couldn't decide on my books of all time though, sorry!
 
My very favorite books are-
"Little Women" by Louisa May Alcott
"The Chronicles of Narnia" by C.S. Lewis

Other books I have re-read countless times-
"The Last Silk Dress" by Ann Rinaldi
"Black Beauty" by Anna Sewell
"The Little Princess" by Frances Burnett

I'm also a newly converted Tolkien addict :lol:

When I first saw and read the cover of the book I was like this is a Harry Potter Remake but it is so much different and it's style is way good. I can't wait for the other two to come out. Have you read any of the other books I have posted about?

I have read the five Harry Potters, although they're not too great in my opinion, the Amulet of Samarkand, Eragon and, err, that's it.

Did you know Eragon was written by a person who started on it when they were 14 :eek: they're 18 now though...

What did you think of Eragon? Yeah I knew he was that young and that is inspiring, but did you know he was a genius he graduated at 15.
