Well, there isnt much in this board, so I thought id kick off with a topic about books: Everyone, what's your favourite book and author? Mine is The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams.

Discuss.
I play City of Heroes. You should too.
Trust me. It rocks.

My FanFic, the Vercetti Gang, is awesome: Read it.

Yeah, I saw the theatre version of that last week.

Lol... in America, the first Harry Potter book is called Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone. Presumably only the rest of the world know what a philosopher is. God bless market research.

I'd have to say either the Godfather by Mario Puzo or the LOTR trilogy.

There is no "freedom of speech" in forums, yes you can say what you want but in the end what the mods say gos. This is not a democracy.

I don't like reading pretty much at all...

I have read all five Harry Potter books though...

I also read the Hobbit twice, an dI'm about halfway through the Fellowship of the Ring right now.


I don't really get into reading much though...

Ooh... I hate the LOTR books for too many reasons to list here... they're just so, so... so boring. And the Silmarillion... it justs exerts an air of boredom around it... I couldn't get past the first page, and even my dad, who is a huge LOTR fan, only lasted until page ten...

I loved that movie, never read the book, but the movie for The Time Machine was awesome!


And the only reason why the LoTR is boring (which I do agree with you) is because the author is trying to make you feel how the characters are feeling, like tired or exhausted, if it was just always fighting and action it wouldn't make it seem very realistic.

Well im intertested in both the world wars, and at the moment im reading "World war 2 in pictures". Which is a giant book filled with illustrated pictures, and the stories of the war, like how hitler built fake peace treaties, then assualted countries etc. Very good read. Some very mind-opening pictures in there as well.

The Time Machine has some really interesting ideas, like the fourth dimension and stuff. The actual story, though, gets a bit boring as you go on... it's good, but not great.
