put your favourite books and discription of them here, so others will read it
(One book per post for less confusion.)
and then you can comment on them later on, after you have read them or if you already have.

One of my very favorite novels is On the Road by Jack Kerouac. It was written in first-person during the "beatnik" period of the late 1950's-early 1960's and the content is a little mature for younger readers. However, it is not only believable and clever, it is timeless in its appeal and the characters are memorably unique. If you are into "slice of life"-type books, try this one on for size...but watch out, you may find yourself saying "Yassss" a lot...

WEll... I like TLOTr. SURPRISE SURPRISE!!! I guess you mean other than the Tolkien books.

I like Gaston Leroux's The Phantom of the OPera . I like PRide and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I like The Scarlet PImpernel a little. The movie is way better. I guess that's the extent of all my non-Tolkien favourites.

I am soooo sad.

Hello :o)

I'm reading 'There And Back Again' an actor's tale by Sean Astin. It does give a good insight as to how Sean got involved in LOTR (and his past involvement in other films) but he comes across as being very insecure but a very nice person. I think there is a similarity between Sean and Sam.

It's very good so far...

When I finish I'll get back to you.

my favourite book other than Tolkien would be 'The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant The Unbeliever'... long name, huh. but a very good book, more mature reading than LOTR but it earns S.D. the right to be shoulder2shoulder with Tolkien. there is also a second chronicles and each chronicles has three books. A lot of reading.
I am a fast reader and I am am almost finished the last book of the second chronicles. (around 3000 pages i think, i don't know.)

That's some good reading, Aragorn Jr! Perhaps sometime I'll get around to it myself. I adore the book [u]Eragon[/u] by Christopher Paolini. It's such a great book, I recommend it to a reader of any age! Well, it's graphic in the violence sometimes, so more mature readers =)

Les Miserables is one of my favorite books, and I am dead serious.
