favourite book/writers (Page 2)
talis: i like books from E. M. Remarque, E. L. Doctorow, G.G.Márquez, E. B. Singer, also i was really obsessed by Robert Holdstock (Mythago Wood, Lavondyss, etc.) when i was younger
phoebeso: Moment in Peking by Lin Yutang; Waiting by Jin Ha; The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck(nobel prize winner). These three books are all about Chinese people, but are written in English originally. Very good ones!
Currently my favourite's Gone with the Wind.
There's an american historic romance named The Century, which kept me stay up till 4am.....really wonderful!
Rach74: I liked Flowers of Evil by Baudelaire and to go with it The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. These two books are about living a decadent or self indulgent life and how empty life can feel once youve exhausted your senses with too much beauty and pleasure. (I moved on from these ideas now that years have passed since 1)my discovery of these books and 2)the life experiences i went through which complemented my understanding of these books,) At the time I was dealing with depression in the fact that I was sorely disappointed time after time by the "prizes" i worked so hard for. in that way i got the things i wanted in this life and experienced the same feelings of boredom or "ennui" mentioned in baudelaire, and in small ways even turned to a more corruptive way of life due to a desperate need to FEEL!
igvy780: poems by allen ginsberg is what im reading now. the child prodigy to the bard, the man is a poetry genius. oh and had finished reading fear and loathing notes funny as hell. hunter s thompson is wierd but factually honest and humourous in the most wrong ways ever. love it
PerpetualDreamer: Favorite Authors. Well, this is a bit different from favorite books.
Jayne Ann Krentz
I can't think of anymore right now.
WukingPunNub73: Frank Herbert's original 6 books of Dune Chronicles, Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, James Clavell's Shogun and Taipan. My favorite authors by far, too bad they're all dead now. Such great stories and writing style, books to savour for all time.
RobynLee: i really enjoy jane green, easy reads and fun! Good chick lit!! Also a favorite is emily giffin
WubbleU: Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett, and H. G. Wells. All great authors, and when I've finished reading a book by Wells, I tend to speak and write more like I was around in the early 1900s, it's quite funny

MaryJane00: The best book ever written (in my opinion) is "Under The Dome" by Steven King, this book is amazing....the concept of cause and effect is everything in this book. The wide variety of characters both in number and personality make this book a really wonderfull read.
