    Favourite book? Thats a tough one...too many to pick from!

    I think for now I'll say Monsoon by Wilbur Smith, cause that was just...wow.

    Theres tons of other amazing books I've read though...so I'll probably change my mind in about 5 seconds

    Not much blows up, and not too many people die, but after page 50 or so it held my interest to the very end. I believe I read most of it in a day. It's part of a trilogy...The Magic Journey and The Nirvana Blues are also good.

    Pretty much any book by Terry Pratchett. I must've read nearly every book in the discworld series. :) At the moment, i'm readin "all quiet on the western front", which is really something else. People should be made to read it. it really changes your views.

    Either one of the Sherlock Holmes books or Kensuke's Kingdom, but I've read so many books that I've forgotten a lot of them, so I really don't have one favorite book.

    Anything by Neil Gaiman or Terry Pratchett. Good Omens, by both of them, is one of the funniest things I've ever read in my entire life.
    Um, and the Kushiel's Legacy trilogy by Jacqueline Carey is my guilty pleasure. >>;

    Reaper Man by Terry Pratchett.

    That, or, maybe Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. Sure, it's a tough read, but it's worth every page.

    Either The Once Future King or Hound of the Baskervilles. Those are 2 of only 5 books I own and I read them the most often, which still isn't very often :p

    Some of the books in the Wheel of time series or The divene comedy ( Nots sure of the titel in english) by Dante Alighieri, though it's pretty hard too read I still thinks it's very good.

    The Romance of the Three Kingdomes its really long so mabye its not for every one. I just read the abridged version (I couldn't find all three books). Also The Tales of the Otori Trillogy. These books kick ass plus they've ninjas and Samurai warfare. Even my mom liked them you should defanitly check these ones out. Also... The Foot Book by Dr. Seuss. lol

    In my opinion the best book I've read was Crime and Punishment by Dostoieviski, and The Art of War.
