need books to read
give me some new ideas? What should I read next?
Im reading The Hobbit and Lord Of The Rings again(Iv read it 3-4 times),because I cant find anything new eater... What do you like to read?
I like to go to second hand book stores and charity shops and see what they have in, it's sometimes good to pick up something that you wouldn't normally think of reading. If you hate it you haven't wasted loads of cash on it=)
Onegin by Alexandr Poesjkin
I love it!
They made a movie from this book, also called Onegin, with Liv Tyler and Ralph Fiennes.
Have you read Alice's Adventures in Wonderland? I just started reading it yesterday, it's actually really good ^.^
Also, I just finished Let the Right One In (by John Ajvide Lindqvist), which is really DISTURBING! Yeah, but it was good though.
If you have a DS you should by the 100 Classics - its brilliant reading on your DS and I've read 5 books so far that way (2 Sherlock Holmes books, Dr Jeckyl & Mr Hyde, White Fang, The Secret Garden) and I'm just starting Call of the Wild.
AWW, I love Call of the Wild! Jack London was a god. Secret Garden is a fave of mine, too. Have you seen either of the film adapts? Neither one does the ending right! They have them grow up, and Dicken, who is the best character, and I've had a crush on him since I was like 9, died in the war!? And Mary marries stupid Colin. Lame. LOL.
Ok, to answer the first post....
It really depends on what you like. I am a fantasy junkie, and I love the Wheel of Time books. If you haven't read them, the first one is called The Eye of the World, by Robert Jordan. I love the main cast of characters as much as I love Harry, Ron, and Hermione.
The Chronicles of Prydain are good, too. On the not so fantastic side, there's The Lovely Bones, James Herriot's series-All creatures great and small, all things bright and beautiful, etc, etc, etc. The latter is fabulous. He was a country veterinarian in Yorkshire, from the 40s to the 70s. He wrote the various British dialects beautifully. Those books make you laugh, cry, hope, and feel all warm and fuzzy.
I've been really enjoying Chuck Palahniuk recently, but you have to like slightly more disturbing but intellectually stimulating stuff. Invisible Monsters and Survivor are my favourites to recommend, then probably Fight Club, then Haunted, then Lullaby, then Choke. Neil Gaiman is great if you want a more gentle style, but amazingly well written - his early teen book The Graveyard Book is NOT just for kids, it's a really good read.
great ideas guys, thanks
I love Sean Stewart too. You can't find his stuff over here in the UK but Canada will be no problem - the best one I think is Galvaston. He writes kind of sci fi/fantasy/futuristic stuff. He's hard to describe but I love his stuff.
I enjoyed reading "The Witch of Portobello" by Paulo Coelho and " A Handmaid's Tale" by Margaret Attwood. Both, in my opinion, are great reads!
I've been reading the north america's forgotten path series by michael gear and kathleen o'near gear. Kathleen O'near Gear's "in me" series is awesome too its like a historical fiction series.
