Best book you ever read?
A Constellation of Vital Phenomena
A Thousand Splendid Suns
For me it was the kite runner
Not the best but among the best ones for me
I consider it the best because when I read it as a teen it completely blew my mind… And that’s a very hard thing to do! 😉
It’s my favorite, as well!
That’s among my top 2-3 favorites.
What are your others?
Crime and Punishment, Mere Christianity, Pride and Prejudice, Emma. That’s more than 2-3, lol. I have a hard time choosing a short list.
Mine too, reading it again now. Just lost Jake
Pride and Prejudice. Alice in Wonderland was the first great book I ever read.
“BEST?!” oh boy… OK. That actually takes some consideration. “Best” as opposed to “favorite”… best as in couldn’t put down, irresistible and impossible to do anything else until I’d finished it would have to be “Rebecca” by Daphne duMaurier.
Samarkand by Amin Maalouf
The Night Circus and Around the World in 80 days
Really? The Night Circus? I have it but haven’t read it yet.
From page 1 i couldnt put it down.
@Jamesray, maybe I should read it next!
I would highly recommend it. You read throw 2 main characters and 1 side character you keep asking whats his real role.
I can’t decide between Jane Eyre & The Good Earth.
Both excellent choices, Sarah! After reading Th Good Earth when I was in 5th grade, I became infatuated with the Chinese culture. Maybe I should get back to Pearl S. Buck reads.😗
The Count of Monte Cristo
This is really an impossible one to answer, but if I HAD to I think I’d go with TheOnceand Future King. Not necessarily my absolute favorite, but maybe the “best”. It’s profound, yet entertaining. And since I first read it 50 years ago, I have re- read it numerous times and to this day, I still find something new every time. Beautiful book.
Interview with the Vampire
The best? The Shining or Harvest Home
Harvest Home was well done. I couldn’t say it was the best book I ever read, but I thought it was good.
To Kill a Mockingbird
THE LAST AMERICAN MAN by Elizabeth Gilbert. Loved this biography of Eustis Conway.
The Help- the first book I read as an adult a few years ago and hooked me on reading. Before I would claim to hate reading. As a teacher, this always broke my heart. Now I read all the time and love it.
Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson
