    What's the Best Book You've Ever Read?

    Post by Kyouri Kai on Sat 03 Nov 2007, 3:21 am

    I've read so many books, mostly non-fiction, but as for fiction, I'd say it was Harry Potter, Angels & Demons, The Rule of Four.

    Well, I don't like to read much but I've read some great books. I'd say that my favourite is "Tartuffe" by Molire.

    Amazed at how many people have read Angels & Demons, as most people are more familiar with Dan Brown's Da Vince Code. After reading Angels & Demons, The Da Vinci Code was a tad bit disappointing, although still a very good read.

    @ CSD.. I've heard of the Alchemist, but haven't read it. How good is it?

    Nicholas Flamel was the first person that popped into my mind, but wasn't sure, as he has rarely been used in fiction (Harry Potter an exception, of course). I thought it may be more like Eragon or something on those lines. Cool, I'll check it out. Thanks. :

    I read Da Vinci Code before Angels & Demons. Hmm.. but I have to agree, Angels & Demons is wayyy better.

    The Alchemist is one, good book too! How could I possibly forget about that? :/

    The Historian is awesome, too.

    Oooh! By the way, I love this book too: Gates of Fire by Steven Pressfield. It's a more detailed book version of the '300' movie. It's really, really good.

    I've contemplated buying that.. Digital Fortress.. but haven't yet. I figured if I like the other two I've read of Dan Brown's then this one should be pretty good, too. Is it?

    I'd say it's ok, it's about cryptography and NSA. I just started so I don't know how good it is.

    You should try Deception Point, I think it was great.

    Yes, Deception Point and Digital Fortress are good books of Dan Brown, too.. Pretty awesome, since I'm into cryptography and all that stuff.

    Right now I'm reading Paradise Lost. So far it's really good, but at the same time confusing.

    Stardust is a really good book. Have you read american gods and neverwhere? Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles are also pretty good.

    My top 5 would be:
    1. Dracula - Bram Stoker
    2. The Godfather- Mario Puzo
    3.The Client - John Grisham
    4.Patriot Games - Tom Clancy
    5.Harry Potter Series

    Yes, it is! I love it! Nope, I haven't read American Gods and Neverwhere yet. :/ Neil Gaiman's Sandman is pretty good, too! And Anansi Boys. Wink

    How could I forget Dracula and The Godfather!? I have to buy those books sometime.. I don't have a copy of it, I just borrowed it from a friend. o-o

    You should read neverwhere and american gods. They are different but really good.

    i borrowed Neverwhere from a friend. He recommended it...haven't read it yet. I'm in the process of rereading Stephenie Meyers' Twilight, after which i will reread the sequel New Moon and then will finally read the third one, Eclipse (which i've been putting off since september >.

    I haven't read any of the books I've been planning to read, too. :/ I'm supposed to read One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garca Mrquez for this book report, and yet I ended up reading Love in the Time of Cholera instead (same author.) Lol.

    Wicked isn't that bad, either.

    I've heard of Wicked, its about the witch from the wizard of oz right? I find with some books for school that I have to read I either really like them or despise them with a passion. Love one flew over the cuckoo's nest hated stone angel by margeret lawerence
