My favorite book by Coelho is The Alchemist , as you might have figured 8) But I always enjoy reading his books. I can't do it without a pencil on the other hand. There are so many interesting quotes in all his work.

They are two books:
Harry Potter and the deathly hallows
The Alchamist

those were the kind of books that gives you a pleasant feelings when you remember the time you read them. Well, at least for me .
They are the best for me ( maybe because of the twists sometimes in the plot)
Also, there is something about these two: It made me have like " aha, so that what the author meant , that was smart" kinda thinking. I like it when an author provokes the reader towards anticipating and thinking and having a positive role.

I enjoy reading short stories. My favorite author of these is Saki (H.H. Munro). They are masterpieces of dry humor.

This is a really difficult question, but I'll say The Catcher in the Rye, if only for sentimental value. This is a book that I read first when I was 19, after having hearing some people saying how good it was, how the book changed their lives, etc. I think the book also changed my life, and at the moment of reading it I considered it the best I'd ever read. But hence I've read a lot of other books that arguably I could consider better, maybe some by Stephen King, others by Michael Crichton, Dean Koontz or Brian Keene, even the Harry Potter series. But in this case the heart wins over the brain and I give my kudos to Sailinger.

hi everybody, this is my first post here, so concerning my favoured book , I will say Emma by Jane Austen. By the way " Lord of the Flies " by William Golding depicts the life of a group if children after the crash of their plane in an unknown island. The main character is Ralph, also Piggy ,Jack and Simon (i've just get across one of your replies that you ask about this novel ) , bay {-:

I like Andrew Matthews's Books: Happiness Now, Follow Your Heart, Being a Happy Teen, Happiness in a Nutshell. I discover many interesting thing in these books, especially laws of life. They help me to discover my self too. Funny cartoon and story make me smile. Life is more lovely in my eyes whenever i read Andrew's books. Andrew helps me to balance life and work. I usually bring these books when i go on a travel. They are my close friends. Thank Andrew Matthews.
