    I think the funniest book i've ever read was a walk in the woods by bill bryson. it's a travel book about the appalachian trail. Don't be discouraged by the genre it's really hilarious and informative too.

    for horror i reccomend stephen king not really unique but good. soem of the best imo are pet cemetary, the shining, and cujo. if your looking for something different clive barker has written imajica and weaveworld. (coldheart canyon is really sexually grhapic and you might not like it) You'll porbably read something like dean koontz's intensity or winter moon quickly. intensity is especially hard to put down. the action never slows

    hpe that helps

    Best Stephen King book, imho is It.

    Set in the small town of Derry, It is the story of an evil presence and the kids who fought it off.

    Years ago, a group of children discovered the existence of, and fought off, an evil creature that was preying on the children of Derry.
    The creature often took on the form of a clown, calling itself Pennywise.
    It also sometimes appeared as whatever it's victim was most afraid of.

    The children thought that they had killed Pennywise, but made a pact to return and finish the job if he ever returned.
    The children grew up and all but one left Derry and became a success in the world.

    Then the killings started again. Over the course of time, a kind of spell-like trance had taken their memories of what they had done and seen as children.
    With little more than the memory of the oath they had made so long ago, they must now return to Derry and stop Pennywise, stop It, once and for all.
    Great page turner... and it's a huge book.

    I can't stand Stephen King. He produced two, perhaps three, decent books. Now he's simply milking it (not that I really blame him).

    What genres do you like? I'd love to give you recommendations, but I don't want to recommend things you probably aren't looking for (comedic sci-fi, for example).

    The book you're referring to, however, is called "The Dogs of Babel." Interesting premise, but it's not executed entirely well. Although, for a debut novel, I suppose it's fairly decent.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    if the copyright date isn't 198_ it probably isn't very good

    Any of Stephen Donaldson's are must reads imo:

    Chronicles of Thomas Covenant
    The Gap Series


    Being the best.

    Brett Easton Ellis is one of my favourite authors as well. American Psycho being one of his better known works but The Informers is my personal favourite of his.

    i know but i like trash books sumtimes...anyone know or is it not avaible on the net?

    ______________

    wow thanks guys you know alot im 16 so i dont really read as much as i should .

    ok here are the books im gonna take so far:

    Stephen King - The Stand
    Irvine Welsh - Porno
    Mark Nillingham - Sleepyhead
    Micheal Moore - Dude, Wheres My County

    My taste?? Well its hard it like music and film i like anything really. I dont think im to keen on sci-fi but if there is a classic mabye Aliens id like it. Dont like romance they seem all the same to me but thats probily because i read crap ones.

    As you can see the books are very different thats why i like trying out different geners and stuff, i like books that are addicitve and you cant put down.

    LOL not really helpful is it . . .

    Helpful enough.

    I'd recommend Pilgrim by Timothy Findley. It centres around a man who can't die, even though he's tried multiple times. He's diagnosed a schizophrenic, and is put under the care of Carl Jung.

    The Truth Teller by Katherine Govier's also a decent read. I probably like the former better, though.

    Then there's always the newest hit, The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons, which isn't arguably a hit, but by the same authour and in the same vein as Code.

    If you've got a bit of time to kill, pick up Dumas' The Count of Monte Cristo. It's an excellent book, and I've even managed to get someone who doesn't read all that often hooked to it.
