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 really love the Harry Potter series as well as Dan Brown's books. They stir my curiosity and get the juices in my brain working!

I like the book called " My sister's keeper".
It's really a special story plot I have ever seen.
And I also like reading " Harry Potter" series books.

My favourite book is Harry Potter.
Harry Potter was written by J.K.Rowling.
The content stimulates splendidly very much.

My favourite book is Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. I'd like to read it again.

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.

I love Anne Frank...I just cannot imagine the situations she went through but writing at the same time. Was her father who kept the Diary?
