Referring to Cider House Rules: Excellent book, excellent writing - one of Irving's best. A controversial subject that's relevent for today. One of my favorite books. The movie changed the story, leaving out the most critical part. It won an Oscar, but was a disapointment to me.

I did not know there were so many favorite books I had never heard of and I read alot. My favorites are "Snow Falling on Cedars", "Empire Falls" by Richard Russo, "Fair and Tender Ladies" and "Family Linen" by Jean Smith and my most recent favorite is "The Light Between Oceans" by ML Stedman. My list keeps growing.

I couldn't agree more. The characters in Cider House Rules were magnetic. Loved it!!!

Totally agree...One Hundred Years of Solitude is one of the few books I've read multiple times. With each read, the characters become richer, the allegory more meaningful.

Pride & Prejudice, The Secret Life of Bees, The Mirror, Room, Shanna, The Hunger Games Series, The Outlander Series; Lee Child Reacher Series, Nicholas Sparks for Love & Family stories & Jeffrey Deaver if you want a murder/serial killer mystery novel. I have A Tree Grows In Brooklyn & will read it based on many of the post read this evening......I also recently started reading Gillian Flynn - Although dark, her syntax and characters are something to study. I have not read The Fall of Giants & will add this to my list of "to do's." Thx for all the reading ideas....

I love to read the bible too; however the poetry of it in the King James version cannot be beaten. I have three others but that one is the one I come back to the most. I'm a reat lover of science fiction/fantasy also. My favs are Charles Stross (any and all titles), Sharon Lee and Steve Miller's Liaden space operas. David Weber's Honor Harrington series is as good as the Horatio Hornblower naval series of C. S. Forester. Love military books in general. Fiction, biography, Sun Tzu's, Art of War. Wonderful. I, too, love the Game of Thrones series. While I have reread some, the first books I mentioned are my go to for comfort reading. Some books like Gail Godwin's Jubilee Trail, Lord of the Rings trilogy and the The Hobbit, War and Peace or Anna Karenina I have reread at least every two years for the past 50+ years (or however long the newer ones were published).

The Chosen and Davita's Harp are also favorites by Chiam Potok. I recently reread his entire corpus. Another fav non-fiction is his Wanderings (History of the Jews). I used to get up at 5:00 a.m. to listen to him on PBS. Many years ago, of course. He died of cancer in 1972 or 73.

One of my favorite Chaim Potok's books, My Name is Asher Lev, is being shown as a play off-Broadway in New York. We are going to see it next week.

Agree. The Power of One is an excellent book. I've enjoyed many of Bryce Courtney's books. The Potato Factory is another good one.

Sorry--what was a really hard book to get through?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 29, 2012 5:50:51 PM PST
One of the best! Another one I thought was a best book was The Lovely Bones. It was made into a movie also.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 29, 2012 5:54:03 PM PST
Yes, Yes, Yes! Also loved The Lovely Bones.

I have not read The Source yet but I love Michener. Texas, Alaska and Hawaii are my favorites. Chesepeake is also a great book. Great stories and very educational.
The Source will be my next read.

i have read Atlas Shrugged several times and still think it is a work of genius. The Fountainhead is also very good.
