    American Gods

    Harry Potter (POA)

  • Hello, speaking about my favorite books. I would say it's an original trilogy Lord of the Rings. I can always read it when I have free after I finish working on my task.

  • I'm not used to re read. i'm kind a slow rader, soo...

    but I can see we love Tolkien here, of course The Hobbit is my favorite child book, I just love it and read it from time to time. I have recently tacled The Silmarillion with the help and gidance on ThePrancingPonyPodcast and just lost my mind with the depth of this mitology.

    On a most real and cientific, but lot of adventure too, I'll recomend El Kon-Tiki. It's the diary of an expedition trying to prove the movement of people from South America to Oceania on an aborigin raft.

  • We have here on the latest Amapiano updates on by Ntokzin - Lockdown 21

  • My three would be:

    1. The Wasp Factory by Iain Banks

    2. Resurrection Dreams by Richard Laymon

    3. How to Draw by Scott Robertson

  • @JuRM: I should also point out that as a historical document, and because it's interesting, Little Wars by H. G. Wells is well worth a read.

  • My favourite books are The Lord of the Rings series, I just love them. All these books are written by a brilliant man. It often happens that I use for my college tasks. I write various book essays and other papers, analyzing books all the time. And more often I like to write about my favourite books.

    1. The Alchemist: It is my favourite. It is a classic with inspiration, drama, mystery and adventure. I have read Paulo's other work but none matches the Alchemist. Now, I feel like reading it again.
    2. The Fountainhead: I liked this book. I read this book when I was confused and undetermined few years back. The interesting part of the book is its philosophy.
      Everything and every character says some or more about the world. Ayn Rand taught me that there is no substitute of personal dignity, there is no standard of personal dignity except independence. She taught how mountains and oceans do not prove that man is small but look at the skyscrapers and you will know the greatness of the mankind.
    3. The Great Gatsby: I saw movie first unfortunately and was left curious about the character Daisy. She was one of my motive to read this book. I couldn't find the book for months. Then my boyfriend (who was an acquaintance back then) gifted me that book as a birthday gift. Now that I think, it was an impressive move.
