true, i hate when books are like super popular and lack information. I really honestly read non fiction, science and metaphysical books.. thats the section i go straight to when im at the book stores!

1984 is actually quite disturbing but good nevertheless. Animal Farm is good too. As is Fear and Loathing...

On a side note, fucking Nietzsche's still on page 40. :-\

I remember the last 15 pages. It's weird because I don't like the ending itself, yet I find it to be the best ending ever.

Eh, I'm average. Nothing special.

So I don't know what to read after Fear and Loathing. I want a fiction book, great details, not boring, etc...should I read Misery?

No you don't want to read Stephen King... Stephen King was an 90's author... Now he should be burried !

Maybe you should try Palanihuk's Fight Club if you didn't read it...



If ignorance is bliss, then knock the smile off my face.

  • Think for yourself, question authority.
Tad Williams "Otherworld" series is well worth a look.

Crichton's "Jurassic Park" and "The Lost World". Fictional, detailed and keeps you at it. Best books I've ever read.

why not read stepehn king?  so what if he is a '90's writer', dickens is a 19th century writer and yet people still read him.  most of king's best work came out in the 70's and 80's, not the 90's.

i'd recommend misery for sure, as well as carrie, the shining, green mile, pet semetary, salems lot and laods others.

if a book is popular it automatically isn't good?

Is there such thing as following a trend when it comes to reading a certain book? Hell, I think the fact that a book is popular means that it is actually pretty good.
