Who is your fav. author? What is your fav. book? Why are these your favs?

My fav. author would have to be Nora Roberts or JD Robb. Her books, be it the romances that she writes as Nora or the futureistic suspense that she writes as JD, just pull me in unlike any other that I've read. I've always been able to get a picture of the story that an author is telling but with Nora or JD it's like I am a character. I not only see everything in my mind but also almost feel as I'm living what the characters are living.

As far as my fav. book goes, there's just toooo many out there.

Favorite author: Roald Dahl
Favorite book: LOTR trilogy and Roald Dahl's books. Though I don't feel like putting these books on pedestals.

I've adored Roald Dahl's books since childhood. I've read most of them (Charlie and the Chocolate Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, the BFG). I love to come home from school, curl up near the furnace with a cup of tea and a Roald Dahl book. It's just the book to enhance a child's imagination. And they all have happy endings (I can't read about depressing endings when I come home from school). They're preposterous and fantastic all at the same time. I like to keep my inner child alive.

I love books...where do I start???
Some of my favorite books are: Spindle's End, Drowning in Secrets, Troubling A Star, Troy: from Adele Geras, Looking at the moon, Hollow Tree, Feelin sorry for Celia, North Side of the Tree, The Night I Disppeared, The Catcher In the Rye, The Curious Incident About The Dog In The Night-time, Blindness, Slaves Of The Mastery, The Coram Boy.
Another book I loved was the Sky Stone. It's about 600-700 pages, so if your willing to take alot of you spare time reading-it's worth it!

Yeh, I'm such a book worm!

Stephen King- his books make no sense until you read them out loud, but then when you do, they actually are good. "Dreamcatcher" is my favorite- deals with the structure of the human mind and, more importantly, how to get out of it.

Favorite author - Chuck Palahniuk (writer of fight club)
- Chuck is an AMAZING writer, his words just totally immerse you in the world he is talking about, or the person he is describing. It is INSANE. Hubert Selby Jr is also one of my favorites, he has the ability to really make you think.

Favorite books - Ah, there are a lot. First off the ones by Chuck - Choke, Invisible Monsters, Diary, Lullaby ALL great books. And as for Hubert Selby Jr....one book (also a FANTASTIC movie), Requiem For A Dream. This book is probably the best book I have ever read. It is brutaly honest in its story telling, and makes you feel real emotion. It is an interesting read though, no quotations when people talk, no new paragraphs. Just periods and comma's. Great books though, all of them.

Some of my favorite authors are Kurt Vonnegut, Hunter Thompson, Dan Brown, Margaret Weis, and Tracy Hickman.

I'd say right now my favorite book is Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter Thompson. It's just so ridiculous.

rancidkitty, have you read the Daren Shan chronicles of Crique Du Freak? They're pretty cool but theres so many of them!

My favorite book right now is Dr. Neruda's Cure For Evil by Rafael Yglesias. It's about a therapist and psycologically analzing people and himself and trying to 'cure evil'. It's a crazy book. I love it.

I'm currently reading The Face Of Another by Kobo Abe. It talkes about a scientist who got his face wiped out by a lab accident, and now he has a horribly disfigured face so he tries to reconstruct it and during that time, he comes to certain realizations on the importance that people have put on face. It's really good and it explores identity, self worth, and social contact.
