What is your most favourite book? As for me, I really enjoy If tomorrow comes by Sydney Seldon. I bet it's worth reading. So adventurous and atractive :!: How about yours?

If tomorrow comes is okay, but Sidney has better books than that. Master of the game, the naked face, tell me your dreams, stranger in the mirror are his best ones in my opinion.

My favorite book is a Chinese masterpiece <HongLouMeng> by ChaoXueQing, who was a talented writer. he died more than 300 years ago. :cry:

If he was still alive, I would have chased him desperately! In my eyes, he is NO 1 forever!

Hi DEMA, welcome your first post and welcome to the forums! :wink: I'm very happy to meet you here too. Reading novels is also one of my favourite hobbies but I don't have much time now to read.
I think I ever read The Lord of the Flies but in my mother tongue so the title maybe be transfered differently. I don't remember the author but the main character's name is Atho, right? :roll: He also has another fault name too? :roll:

Asking me what's my favorite book is just like asking me about my favorite song. There are so many I can't just pick one.

Two nights ago, for example, I came accross this novel I read in high school, and I loved it by then. I just took and read it non-stop. Went to bed at 2am :D

Hi,
I've just come back from my holidays, a period in which I usually read a lot and... what a difficult question!
Well, I cannot choose a favourite book too, but one of my favourite books is 'Possession' by Antonia Susan Byatt.
Has anyone read it?

Goethe's Faust is a great classic and a wonderful story.

Hello
i like serious book with philosophic and psychologic problems. that's why my favorite books are Dostoevskye 'Idiot' and Hesse 'Stepenwolf'.
And i like Tolkien very much espesially 'Lord of the rings'. Its my favorite fantazy writer. his heroes ase always noble and courageous, they doesnt afraid of evil and death.

My favourite book could be Nietzche's "Thus spoke Zaratustra", but actually I couldn't finnish it...

The message was so strong in the beginning that the rest of the book seemed to be very weak in comparison... and so I gave up reading it. :(
