Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm looking for a good book to read. Name anything you thought was outstanding. I've tried googling this but only clickbait crap came up. Thanks.

  • A Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan (possibly the greatest modern literature EVER)
  • The Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss
  • The Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson
  • Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
  • Malazan Book of the Fallen by Steven Erikson
  • The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R Tolkien
  • + obligatory mention: A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin (mostly due to his intricate characters and story; writing is also really good)

Some of the best right there. None of them are romance books. ;)

If you want to read about a 1947 idea of what the future would be like then read "1984".

You want a hard book try Finnegans wake, 6 years, i have made it to the 2nd page, or comprehend the two pages. This one of the hardest books to read, just utter crazy talk.

Haunted: about writers who lock themselfs away underground for a month and well chaos ensues. Kinda only the strong survive mentally developes but, you do it to yourself mostly. Very good book, highly recommend.

Fierce invailds from hot climates: great fun read. All i will say is, send in the clowns.

To Kill A Mocking Bird by Haprper Lee 

The Little Prince by Saint-Euxeory ( God I can't spell his name ) 

 

Those are the books I've read . I know it's generic to some people but it's really good ... 


... Life is a game and the checkpoints are your birthday , you will face challenges where you may not get rewarded afterwords but those are the challenges that help you improve yourself . Always live for tomorrow because you may never know when your game will be over ... I'm totally not going insane in anyway , shape or form ... I just have broken English and an open mind ...

I you are intersted in music and/or subcultures, I can recommend Lords of Chaos and Choosing Death. Both of them are really well researched, and they are well written.

For fiction books I can recommend Cloud Atlas, 1984, A Clockwork Orange, The Brothers Karamazov, Lolita, and The Stranger.
