Thread: Any questions?
Following my interrogation of a completely innocent person in the chat room last night I thought it might be a good idea to start a thread where you can ask all those questions (maybe not *all*) you always wanted to or even just trivial questions.
Ask a question of a particular member.
If that person answers the question they then ask another question of someone else, who answers that and asks a question of someone else ..... and so on.
If the person doesn't answer the question within 2 days then it becomes a 'wild card' and someone else can leap in and ask a question of anyone they choose.
I start! I'll be gentle......
Lord_aelric: What is your favourite book, apart from any Tolkien) and why?
Alrighty, favourite book apart from Tolkien...(tricky) well i dont have a favourite book, film, album or any such thing really, i rate them in terms of "favourite thing at the moment" as time changes IMHO folks tastes. But i suppose in respect to books i always find myself re-reading, aside from Tolkien, i love the works of Steinbeck, "Of Mice and Men and Grapes of Wrath" in particular, I have a thing for 19thC Gothic literature, Poe, Lovecraft, Shelley, Stoker et al..., and the Arthurian Cycle (Mallory, Vulgate, Mabinnogion etc...), Greek Tragedies, Medea, Homer's Iliad, oh crap... i just dont know. Err;
If i was cornered i'd have to say the books that have had the biggest influence on me were either Brave New World or Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance (being a biker meself)
hope that kinda answers your question?
I wish i could be concise, but i'm a gemini, and therefore its not my fault
what about your good self m'lady?
I agree with Steinbeck - Grapes of Wrath was a very moving book. 1984 also. I am not keen on Lovecraft although I have played Cthulululullu. I agree with about favourite being a difficult concept for books. Currently I would recommend Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card to everyone. That and The Little Book of Wrong Shui.
Enough of me
Now you have to ask someone else a question. A different person.
Miruvor, why didnt you post a different question then?
