Which book is best book?

Which book is best book?
I wanted to know what was your favourite book, and I'm going to start with my opinion.

My favourite book is The Hitchiker's Guide to Galaxy (H2G2), by Douglas Adams.

Being a big fan of sci-fi helped me to discover Adams's work and soon H2G2, I immediately loved his style and the absurdity of the stories he writes.

You really have the feeling that he's speaking about the random shit that comes to his mind, and everything connects, and it's completely hilarious because of what happens to the characters.

I can't make a real summary of this book since the character are desperate and have no goals, so I'd have to count all the story from the beginning to the end, and it's quite long to do.

So it's my favourite book because it's hilarious.

What's yours?

Errrrmmm...

One of the latest books I've read and really liked was The Handmaid's Tale because it combines two of my favourite things: Distopia and Feminism
I'm a sucker for Distopian novels anyway and I guess my favourite books are the Hunger Games trilogy currently...

I'm so Mainstream D:

Well, I am now reading "Les Misérables" and find it really good (even though it's hard to understand sometimes) so I don't really know, but I have to read the H2G2 books, they really interest me !

The opposite to an utopia, it's a society in which pretty much everything is fucked up.
Often in connection with dictatorship, 24/7 surveillance, forbidding of gaining knowledge, a very powerful and brutal police and a huge difference in inome and life standard between certain social classes.
It is normally set in the future and often in the same geographical world as ours, it's supposed to reflect what could happen if humans chose to live the same way as they have.
Often they are scientifically more advanced and things like cloning or drugs are common too, that's why they are often in the genre of sci-fi.

RE: Which book is best book?
A good dystopian book (imo one of the best) is 1984 by George Orwell. Actually, all of his books are very good.
I don't really have a single favourite book or series, but among my favourites are The Hitchhikers Books, The Dark Tower by Stephen King, The Nightside Series by Simon R. Green, The Lord of the Rings and the Bartimaeus Books by Jonathan Strout.

I also really like The Long Walk, by Stephen Jing, and a quick glance at wikipedia says it's also a dystopia

Well I really liked the series "L'Autre" and "Les Mondes d'Ewilan" by Pierre Bottero (R.I.P), a french writer who wrote Fantasy books, and are really amazing !

1984, Brave New World and Fahrenheit 451 are probably the most classic go to Dystopian.

My best friend told me about the long walk and it seemed very interesting.

I forgot about Kai Meyer, I really love his books, especially "Die fliessende Königin"-trilogy has so many nostalgic feels to it and I have been lucky enough to have attended a few of his readings and he's such a nice person too.

@Lena: I've only read his Seide Und Schwert trilogy, but I really like these books.
I can recommend Fahrenheit 451 and Brave New World aswell. A Clockwerk Orange is a good book too, but it's a bit hard to read.

RE: Which book is best book?
Hoh boy. Fliessende Königin was the shit.
Seide und Schwert... iiiit was pretty boring.

But... you guys! YOU GUYS!
If you want kickass fantasy read the Abhorsen Trilogy by Garth Nix.
Found it in the bookshelf of my mother and read it. Afterwards I couldn't even


Huedit: Brave New World is one of my favs too. Never made it through 1984... wonder where that book went.
Mistbron trilogy is also worth a read.
Here's my 2 cents

Elfen Lied!

All the other books I read I liked, but none really stood so much that I'd say it's my favorite...

RE: Which book is best book?
Elfen Lied, really ?! IMO I think there are many other mangas that have à better storY than EL's....

But this being your favourite, you must really like Gore....

I enjoyed reading Cloud Atlas, though seeing the movie first helped me to understand the book. I'm not sure I'd have understood everything.

DAMMIT Chloe, we're running out of time!

RE: Which book is best book?
Wait manga counts?
Then my list will be too long, my favourite thouvh must be After School Nightmare. Best plot twist I have ever seen/read/witnessed hands down.

From all the reading I have done in my life I'm used to pretty much being able to guess any plot line, but it just left me speechless.

Another would be Fullmoon wo Sagashite, again so many nostalgic feels.
And skip beat and ouran high school host club are the best comedic mangas I've read.

Elfen lied is fine, I liked it well enough, the story is good and I didn't find the gore being simple for showing gore, but being necessary for the story (unlike stories like Cupcakes or similar)
