That's what I thought, too!

List away, I need to fill the shelves, or atleast the kindle.

I'm getting ready to read Fahrenheit 451 ( again)

Smokin whatever man. Title, synopsis, just share what you want.

Just as long as it's the really good ones, those books that stand out from all the others

The books you think others should read, classics, To Kill A Mockingbird, Hitchhikers Guide, Lord of the Flies, Harry Potter.

The ones that are the best, in your opinion.

If you can read Les Miserables in French, it's highly recommended.

RE: Favorite fiction titles- the good stuff
Some of my favorites growing up, first two were middle school, last two were high school:

And Then There Were None Agatha Christie

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Mark Twain

Animal Farm George Orwell

Pride and Prejudice Jane Austen




I'm too embarrassed to list what I read now.. I almost didn't list pride and prejudice - guilty pleasure.

I have read and enjoyed the middle two. As for Jane Austen, I haven't read any of her stuff, but she is highly regarded by literary critics, so I would say no need for guilt on that score.

Gladiator (1930)

It's a sloppily written book, but it was ahead of its time. The story follows the life of Hugo Danner, a man given super strength and bullet proof skin by his scientist father. He uses his abilities to become a college football star and a legendary hero of WWI. One of the more interesting parts of the book involves him wondering the battlefield killing German soldiers, whose bodies collect on barbed wire trailing behind him. (Could you imagine being a German soldier and seeing an unstoppable man dragging the bodies of your comrades behind him?)

The novel was an obvious influence on the comic book character Superman. In fact, if you read the book and then read early Superman comics, you will see that Siegel and Shuster plagiarized a lot of their early material.
