Also if you haven't checked out Mark Danielewski's sprawling, claustrophobic fiction House of Leaves I HIGHLY recommend it. The style is something I've never seen before.

Just google it and look at images. The book literally is composed in such a way to make the reader feel closed in at times. With pages narrowing words down into single letters sometimes. It's crazy.

Truman Capote. The King of Gorgeous Prose.


Great choice, I'll go with Orwell - 1984 at a tender age was a real eye opener.

Currently reading R Scott Bakker, who I'll recommend to anyone that's enoyed George R R Martin.

E.L. James. The prose is scintillating.

Strange how Watchers is one of the best books ever and at the same time several of the worst films ever.

The book that I enjoyed the most was The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse by Robert Rankin. Surreal as hell and one of the most unexpected storylines ever.


Watchers is just terrific, I wish they would make a movie that does it justice.

Have you ever read Twilight Eyes? I like it as much as watchers.

As kinder, I really liked Mark Twain....Tom Sawyer was such a real kind of fantasy, with language and expressions I'd never heard of round my part of the woods, yes has to be one of my favourites....er, talking about favourites, this is the literary forum innit!

I'd have to say Maeve Binchy . Her novels are quirky , with interesting characters that seem to touch your heart.

Enid Blyton when I was a child.
Got hooked on Thomas Hardy and even Shakespeare in my teen's.
Then read Wythering Height's, which remain's in my top 5.
But my all time favourite is To Kill A Mockingbird ....no contest

Rainbows
Jane

Vonnegut, hands down. When I first read Slaughterhouse 5 when I was 13 I was shocked. I didn't know such writing existed. It was a revelation to me. He had hilarious plot lines, crazy sci-fi situations, and a deep social conscience. Unlike any other writer, he influenced my thinking. Tied for a strong second place would be Tolkien, Melville, and Shakespeare.

PS, Stephen King sucks. His books suck. His movies suck, except The Shinning which he hated anyhow. I don't understand why people like him. I just don't get it. JMO.

How many have you read? Or he just sucks on general principle?

The Shawshank Redemption sucked?

Vonnegut was the best.

Gotta disagree with you on King though, even though I love your user name.

The Mist sucked? The Green Mile? Apt Pupil? Stand By Me? Misery?

I read 5 or 6. The only one I moderately enjoyed was The Stand. The last one I read was Pet Cemetery and I loathed it so much that I couldn't read another. I did not read Shawshank.

I hated him so much that I stopped reading his stuff. Everything I read just sucked except The Stand. Sorry, just don't like his style and his endings are poop. Just my opinion, you obviously disagree.

Of those movies the only one I enjoyed was Stand By Me. I loathed Misery and did not like the Mist at all. The Green Mile was interesting but I found myself laughing at many parts that I don't think I was supposed to laugh at. I did not see nor have I ever heard of Apt Pupil.
