One that readily comes to.mind for me Sometimes A Great Notion
I, Claudius, Roman soap opera, Robert Graves
Okay, I'll be the illiterate moron here. I like Ray Bradbury. I said it and I don't regret it. Pretty much any of his books, but I like The Illustrated Man very much.
The Rebel by Albert Camus - I could read it over and over and it will always seem fresh because I don't understand most of it.
A Confederacy of Dunces (Toole)
In cold blood - Truman Capote
Deliverance ( James Dickey)
I think I’ve read Lonesome Dove more than any other. Maybe ‘Point of Impact’ the first book with Bob Lee Swagger. I can reread both of these over and over for some reason.
For classics? If I’m in an adventurous mood I’ll take Hemingway or London. Something deeper? I’ve read David Copperfield at least a dozen times and it never gets old. For modern, contemporary writers, it’s really, really hard for me to like anybody as much I like Christopher Moore. That dude is just a beast of a storyteller.
But if I could only have one, forever, it would be To Kill a Mockingbird.
Wuthering Heights, Emily Brontë
Modern choice: It, Stephen King
le Rouge et le Noir - Stendhal
Tess of the d’Ubervilles
I’ve read it more than any other. Although, lately I’ve been on a real Sherlock Holmes kick...
Over the last two months or so, I’ve read the entire canon in chronological order, as well as all four of the Nicholas Meyer pastiches. I really enjoyed reading all the stories. Great stuff!
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close - Jonathan Safran Foer
Jonathan Livingston seagull
"Travers Corner" by Scott Waldie. I can read it again and again, about the fictional flyfishing/boat making story. The trilogy is great.
East of Eden, Steinbeck.
I’ve read and reread it many times.
I’m a big fan of Steinbeck having read most of his books, but its hard to pick a favorite.
