What’s the best book you’ve ever read?
Fiction: it’s a tie between Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia. Nonfiction :the Bible
The Brothers Karamazov
Have you read The double by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
A question that is impossible to answer.
Hopefully, I haven’t read it yet.
Oooooo a hard one! I have soooooo soooo many
Agree with all 3 responses above.
. . . And ladies of the club by Helen Hooven Santmyer. Epic!
Found this one boring.one of the very few books I started, but did not finish.
Fixtion: Into the Wild
Non-Fiction: I am Legend
You got that backwards. “Into the Wild” is nonfiction (true story, in other words) and “I Am Legend” is fiction (made up).
The Bible as non fiction and necessary;. All of Madeleine L’Engle’s books, her classic “A Wrinkle in Time” and her non fiction as well.
To kill a mocking bird or lord of the flies
The Count of Monte Cristo.
The Hungry Tide by Amitav Gosh
My favourite is The Shadow Lines by Amitav Ghosh
I haven’t read that yet…
I have many the only one I read twice was Prince of Tides.
Utopia by Sir Thomas More
Well, technically, all the books I’ve read are good in their own little way, but my favorite book is Utopia, I personally think everyone should read it and maybe the world would be kinder.
All great answers. Thank you as I’ve added many to my list.
A Gathering of Old Men
Well, I liked…. no, no….. I really liked…. no… Oh, my all time favorite is…. okay, I can’t choose just one. I’ll have to think about it.
I am happy to see several said the Bible. The King James Version has beautiful writing. The Book of Mormon is also a great book. I loved the Lord of the Rings, which has a lot of religious symbolism.
This is like asking a mom which one of her kids is her ABSOLUTE favorite. Seriously. (for me is a three way tie between The Long Walk, Hemlock Grove and The Vampire Chronicles)
An impossible question. But, The Old Man and the Sea comes to mind.
The two best books I think I’ve ever read have been The Book Thief by Markus Zusak and The Count of Monte Cristo by Dumas.
Read both of those in the last year, and loved them both!
@Robert I’m hoping my kids will come to read them when they get a bit older. I remember CoMC was a bit intimidating when I picked it up, but the story was just incredible!
“A bit intimidating” is a good way to describe THCOMC. It sounds like your kids have a great mom!
I personally think the Bible is fiction. Not to mention The Book of Mormon
However you think, the writing is beautiful.
Hard to pin it down. Too many titles come to mind.
Catcher in the rye. Hands down.
For me, this changes all the time. Today, thinking back, I’d say “The Republic,” by Plato.
A thousand splendid suns
I really liked Lady Chatterly’s Lover & The Bell Jar.
The Count of Monte Cristo
The Book Thief ???
Can`t pick one
War and Peace
or At The Back Of The North Wind
A Confederacy of Dunces
Either The Stand or The Dark Tower series by Stephen King ??
Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier
Too many …
