    Default Favorite book?

    When I was young I used to read tons of books but the best one I've read has to be Diary of a Wimpy kid . What is your favorite book?

    Haruki Murakami - Kafka on the Shore, I definitely recommend this to everyone.


    Note: I actually recommend all his work, but let's start here.

    My favorite book as a kid was The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury.
    Then the Stand by Stephen King.
    Other favorites ~ pretty much anything by Lovecraft, I enjoy Wrath James White, Edward Lee, Brian Keene and Carlton Mellick III.
    Hard to pick favorites......

    I used to be a huge John Grisham fan - Runaway Jury is my favorite book. The movie was great, had an all star cast, but like so many other books-to-film, the book is so much better!

    Toretto, I have all Grisham's books.

    I can honestly say I have yet to see a film version of any of them that I would rate as even passable.

    That began with, arguably, his best book, 'The Firm' (I see you disagree!) where for some unknown reason Tom Bloody Cruise was (mis)cast as the hero and where the guy they cast as the evil guy on the firm Cruise's character went to work for radiated none of the malevolence that the book ascribed to him.

    Yep they screwed the ending of Runaway Jury too! As I said, all star cast, and it was good (I've seen it many times) but nothing compared to the book itself!

    I found his best book (but not my over all favorite) to be a his first non-legal piece of writing: A Painted House

    Yep, I liked one that, too.

    Grisham's books have a shelf all to themselves in my den's wall, ha.

    One of his books - The King Of Torts - I have twice.

    Tip: Do not, as a known Grisham fan, buy a new Grisham book until you have received that year's Chrissie present from folk who know you are a Grisham fan!

    I'd have my Top Three as:

    The Firm
    Bleachers
    The King Of Torts

    Does reading the threads count?

    All reading is good, The Mad One.

    Though prolonged exposure to Chat and Forums might have you beginning to believe that the English language comprises just six or seven expletives!




    Me, I am reading the card that tells you what each of the fillings is in the above chocolates.

    Any nutted ones go down the gullet of my darling wife.

    I get all the liquid ones.

    The others, we fight over tooth-and-nail...

    Chocolate, my favorite haha. If there's a piece that I'd really really want, we might have to cat fight? Nah just joking.

    I enjoy Pride and Prejudice. Both of Mark Lawrence's trilogies. I'm currently reading Kings of the Wyld and I'm loving it.
