If I had to only pick 1, it would be Steven King's "Different Seasons." 4 novellas, 3 made into films. The Shawshank Redemption, Lean on Me, and the forgettable Apt Pupil.

Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Nietzsche and A Happy Death by Camus

Very tough question.

One that has always stood out as a work of fiction is Perfume by Patrick Suskind as well as The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury.

But there's also Fear and Trembling by Kierkegaard, On the genealogy of Morality and Thus Spake Zarathustra by Nietzsche.

Argh!

I can't choose just one book. I've read a lot, b ut not near enough to make such a decision.

Thats my answer too. Robert Doherty is a great writer and I own all the Area51 books.

The "Area 51" series are great. I started a few months ago and am on The Grail right now.

Some of my favorites are "Where's Joe Merchant?", "The Shining", "Mystic River", "Fharenite 451" and "1984".

Farenheit 451 and Brave New World, possibly the two greatest literary works written in the past century.

Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy Trilogy by Douglas Adams. Very entertaining.... That book cracked me open, great introduction in the first 2 pages. jokes are insanely hillarious.

Hitchhikers Guide is an awesome book. Marvin the Robot cracked me up beyond b elief.

Fahrenheit 451 and Brave New World are both awesome reads.

Too many good books.

The divine comedy of Dante, I still have the copy I bought for school 25 years ago.

Yes to Dante, from whence Milton and Nietschze derived their narratives.

Dead Souls, Nikolai Gogol is funnier comedy still.

well, my favorite book would have to be, wait no... umm... it would be the game??? no... umm... well, i'm kinda partial to the one i've been working on lately... it's a Romance novel... it's called, "The Aroma of Love". that's my favorite i guess... i'm not done yet... if i had to choose one i didn't write... it'd have to be "The 10th Kingdom, the book released two months after the movie... good book, better movie... and yet i also enjoyed the Hitchiker's QUARTET (you've gotta read the latest book, it's the best of the four...)

I liked the Douglas Adam's "Hitchhiker" series, "Fahrenheit 451", awesome read, "1984" good but depressing. Of my own interest, are "Encyclopedia Of Amazons,"by Jessica Amanda Salmonson; "Falcon Feather and Valkyrie Sword,"
DJ Conway; "Women's History Of The World," Rosalind Miles; "History Of The Danes," Grammaticus Saxo, as well as the "Noroenna", also by Saxo. "Halldor Laxness," Translated form Icelandic, by Magnus Magnusson. "Living Between Two Worlds," Edited by Chas S. Clifton; "Wicca For Men," A.J. Drew, and several others I could name off the top of my head. Recently, "Pattern Recognition", a novel by William Gibson; and of course, "The Da Vinci Code."

These are just a few....

Of course, been a little disappointed at the lack of response to my posts and threads lately, but I've been calm in the face of it....I'm a little more understanding and patient than most...
