Favorite Book?
Does anyone have a favorite book out there that they just couldn't put down until the end?

I honestly loved the book "Sahara" by Clive Cussler. Clive Cussler has to be one of my favorite authors out there.

What about you guys? I'm interested to know.

Robert M. Pirsig: Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

Leslie J. MacFarlane: Bishop Elphinstone and the Kingdom of Scotland 1431-1514. The Struggle for Order
A sort of history you don't see these days in an academic atmosphere of publish or perish. This was a genuine life's work on the subject.

RE: Favorite Book?
I've not read since my school days, there's just no time for the simpler things in life.. back then my favourite book was 

 You know I can't even remember!? 20 years of life gone by blocking that memory.. I'll fill that last bit in if it comes to me.

Never read normal books, but one I never put down was "The CB PLL Data Book" by Louis M. Franklin (Author) Bought from the USA 1980 this was a loose leaf version where you could add updated pages.

Still out there !

RE: Favorite Book?
I listen to a lot of audiobooks while I'm driving. My all time favorite is The Lord of the Rings, I learned to read with J.R.R. Tolkien. As an audiobook, Rob Inglis is the best narrator for it by far. Don't even bother with other readers. 

Some other recent favorites: American Gods (Neil Gaiman), 11/22/63 (Stephen King), Good Omens (Gaiman and Pratchett), Dune (Frank Herbert, just don't even try the audiobook because they're all terrible), Lullaby (Chuck Palahniuk), Eragon (Christopher Paolini, though the later novels weren't as good as the first in the series), Carrie (Stephen King, never saw the movie but the audiobook was awesome). 

Most of my picks are fantasy, sci-fi, or horror. 

I also recently met an author at a Barnes and Noble book signing, who writes horror audiobooks and also directs audiobook performances of older stories by Edgar Allan Poe and similar classics, his name is Kevin Herren, really nice guy and great quality horror audio shows. I believe his company is called "Macabre Mansion" iirc.

Haven't sat down with a novel in quite a long time, but always enjoyed the Stephen King works.

Have you read the one about the cop in the middle of the desert that ends up taking over a whole town (or something like that) and he begins turning into this weird, mutant monster? I forgot the name. It was an INCREDIBLE Stephen King book.

"Desperation" was what the book was called. The Stand? I haven't read that one yet. I'll have to look into that.
