Best Book you have ever read?

Postby gillygooley » Fri Aug 26, 2011 6:13 pm

Hello ladies, my absolute favourite book of all time is Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett. Love :lvs Love :lvs Love :lvs this book. Refused to watch the mini series though as it might spoil my memory of the story. What's yours???

I loved two thirds of this book and then really didnt like the last third It just totally lost me. Maybe I'll go back and read it again.
My favourite book is "She's Come Undone" by Wally Lamb. Read it when I was about 20yrs old and it just really affected me.

Great thread to start gillygooley! I love to hear other people's thoughts on books. The best book I have ever read is The Island by Victoria Hislop. I have just finished the book When God was a Rabbit - anyone else read it? I found it very funny in places and very strange also??

I love books that years later I still think of so I loved Guilt by Association by Susan R. Sloan, Shawshank Redemption (short story) Stephen King and for a long time IT by Stephen King was a favorite.

American Gods by Neil Gaiman is definately up there, but I am terrible at picking favourites. Pride & Prejudice is also a classic and just going from the poll in the other thread, Lord of the Flies really moved me.

I really loved The other hand by Chris Cleave and The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, really good books.

We obviously have the same taste! I love both these books.

I'd also recommend "We Need To Talk About Kevin" by Lionel Shriver. I found it chilling I have to admit but it was brilliant. Think they've made it into a film.
