I think artsgeek deserves a shiny rep point for that brilliance. Considering he doesn't have one yet Sad

1984 is amazing.

Lolita is good but be prepared to be completely disturbed.

I did this a few years ago - compiled a massive list and circulated it to family and friends so I got them all as birthday/Christmas presents. Great way to get lots of books without it costing you much, and its also kind of an incentive to read them because people ask you about them.

Kerouac - On the Road is amazing
JD Salinger - Catcher in the Rye is fantastic.
Orwell - Animal Farm, def worth a look.
Sylvia Plath - The Bell Jar - my fave book.

I've been big into biographies of late - Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Tuhoe Isaacs, Anthony Kiedis, Motley Crue, Louise Nicholas, Anthony Rapp (of RENT fame).

Also, for witty/funny/light reading - Jenny Crusie writes great chicklit. Bet Me and Welcome to Temptation, both v v good.

I know I should read Animal Farm at some point ... but that would involve having some vague knowledge of the political climate which happens to be the point of the whole thing... and I cbf finding all that out... so it remains at the bottom of the list for another decade or so ^.^o

Her poems are absolute bollocks.

But her book, The Bell Jar, is a work of genius.

I told Liv Liv about how goth lolly was inspired by Lolita so she went out and bought the book, I might borow it from her when she done since our school library can't find it's copy anymore....

I'm quite into the histories, As The Waltz Was Ending was fantastic but that may be somewhat to do with the dance element to it. Eternal love for Jodi Picoult, particularly my Sister's Keeper.

I really want to read Jo's book, but I can't remember the title or her last name so kinda hard. I'll get to it sometime though... I assume.

You could always ask about it at the school library, I mean, you'd think they might know a thing or to about it, given the westlake connection...

Westlake connection perhaps, but not a very proud one!

But hey, I could just ask Ms Marshall, might be a little more helpful instead of going to the librarian, I want a specific book, it's just been published and the author's first name is Jo but I think she used er full name I just can't remember what it is...

I also have eternal love for Jodi Picoult... Change of Heart is beautiful but not quite as good, I felt, as Nineteen Minutes or Tenth Circle.

Well, slightly. I saw it in the bookstore and was like hey, thats the book Tam told me about and then I read the back and was like that sounds interesting.

This list could go on for a while because I have about 200 books I am yet to read. Go book sales.

- The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova (okay, I already read this but I want to read it again).
- The Boleyn Inheritance by Phillipa Gregory
- Lolita (haven't finished it yet)
- Daughter of the Forest/Son of the Shadows/Child of the Prophecy, by Juliet Marillier (read them too but want to again...)

oo yes, Nineteen minutes I got for Christmas, I liked it except that sometimes it seemed to almost cross a line with the homophobia but I put it down to plot detail and character developement rather thanthe author's personal views, though I really didn't like the description of the lesbian and the suggestion that her childhood 'game' had anything to do with her sexuality.

There's a lesbian in Nineteen Minutes? I haven't read it in a long time, so I don't remember much apart from the straight plot.
