My fav. novel(s) has to be the foundation series by Isaac Asimov. It's what got me into sci-fi when i was little, plus its a good series.

Troon Mcallister's Scratch is one of, if not my favorite book of all time. Although the tales of a golf hustler may not be interesting to all, its look into the psychological aspects of sports and life in general really makes you think. Plus it has a great ending, and who doesn't like those?

My favorite Novel is Welcome to the Monkey House by Kurt Vonnegut because of how imaginative he is. He can come up with any scenario and write a story that you'll get hooked on. Especially in All the King's Horses . That was my favorite story of the Book

One of my most favorite novels would have to be Murder on the Orient Express because I like to read mystery. This book has stood out in my opinion because the plot was well organized and fairly easy to follow.

I haven't written it yet.

Second Favorite: I really like Seabiscuit because horseracing is awesome. It was also an extremely detailed and interesting novel of how one horse could have so much heart and will to win. Seabiscuit reminds me of Tiger Woods because you know that they know that nobody is going to beat them in the end.

The reason I didn't pick Seabiscuit as my favorite is because I started going to the racetrack after reading it and lost a lot of what I earned working this summer.

I really enjoyed the novel In Cold Blood by Truman Capote, i find his writing very unique and CREEPY. There is something different that he brings out in his writing, because as i read it i felt like he was telling the story directly to me, which made everything in the novel so real and almost tangible. Also the fact that it was a true story made it alot more terrifying and got under my skin. I also like the fact the Capote kind of leads the reader to curiosity with his ambiguous writing.

I would say my favorite book would have to be The Lord of the Flys because the story seems very realistic if a group of boys were let loose on an island and that is scary. The movie was also an eye opener especialy when the kids start killing each other.

Johnathon Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach. No doubt. It's a short read, but it holds a lot of meaning in its 128 pages.

Also The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupery. It's the same deal. A short book, a lot of meaning.

This topic has been up for a while...I'm not sure if I should still post on these old ones.
I love everything by Chuck Palahniuk: Invisible Monsters, Fight Club, Diary.
I also loved The Great Gatsby and The Sun Also Rises.

The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath is a really great book. I read it freshman year and it's still one of my favorite novels. The metaphors in the novel were things I never would have thought of and the story itself was something that I had never read and it kept me reading which is one thing that I really love in a novel.

Hey guys!

I'm doing pretty good over here in Utah, but I miss you guys!

I'm currently finishing up "Death Comes for the Archbishop" by Willa Cather. It's a very good book, takes time to dig through it, but the descriptions are absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend it for a good read- it is less than 300 pages.

I wish the best for you guys, I hope to be talking to some of you soon.

Smile
