    I love sci-fi.

    The Dune series especially the first two books are off the hook! (Frank Herbert)

    Rama series is great too. (Arthur C. Clark)

    Ender's Game...dope! (Orson Scott Card)

    I just finished reading the new Stephen Hawking too, The Grand Design, It is a really good book if you are interested in the universe, quantum physics and philosophy.

    Oh! Tom Clancy is the **** too if you like very long detailed books about war. Red Storm Rising is a sick book about the USA and USSR going to war in the 1980's.

    My favorite book has to be The Catcher in the Rye. I find Holden to be complex.
    I also loved 1984 and Animal Farm.

    Thomas Harris' Hannibal Lecter series was awesome. Picked 'em up cheap not expecting too much, and they were brilliant. The movies did them no justice as always.

    Mills & Boon are a 'throbbing read' as well.

    Catcher in the Rye is a really good book, was already mentioned above. I really like the stuff written by Nick Hornby. Hi Fidelity is great, a book about the private life of a record collector and dealer, I also love Fever Pitch which is about an Arsenal London fan and his biography.

    In the middle of reading World War Z...its a book about a global war against a zombie uprising that pushes humanity to the brink of extinction. It's really ****ing awesome!!!

    Good picks. Those are also my favorite, and I would like to add short stories from Edgar Allan Poe like The Cask of Amontillado or The Fall of the House of Usher. Also The Lottery by Shirley Jackson
