These are the ones I read on there:

To Kill a Mockingbird-Great book
The Catcher in the Rye (one of my favorite books ever, and the author died today :'( )
The Great Gatsby-Great book :y:
Animal Farm-A great metaphorical book
Lord of the Flies-Worth the read
Count of Monte Cristo-Great book about a prison break in old times
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn-Eh it was alright
War and Peace-Interesting but kinda boring
Atlas Shrugged-Great book, pretty much amazing
A Clockwork Orange-Great great book
Fahrenheit 451-Great short read, really shows the danger of censorship
Frankenstein-Kind of boring cause it's old horror
One Flew over the Cuckoo's nest- eh the movies worth it, books good but not great
The Stranger-Nothing special
The Da Vinci Code-Worth reading, I'm sure most have lol
The Stand-AMAZING book, long as fuck but amazing
Fight Club-Just as good as the movie
The Trial-Great novel, kafka is an amazing writer, I suggest his short stories
Angels and Demons-Another good read, movies good too

Btw there is another list, this I think is the "readers" choice of 100 best, there is another like "intellectual" picks, or something like that, maybe professors, idk, but I know there is another top 100 list.

go for Ender's Game. i was suprised cause there was alot about Poland, it seemed quite random for me.. and there's also another part of it, it's in the same book, but it takes place in Poland.. really, really random, but nice at the same time. :smoking:

Enders game is one of my favorite books of all time. Aside from Ender himself I thought the political situation one earth with peter and valentine was pretty interesting too.

:o wtf?

I mean the beggining was slow but with an ending like that


What ending? Him getting tortured and shot(?) i still don't know if he was really shot in the end or not. That book didn't have nearly enough action to entertain my childish mind :shakehead:
