The Best book Ever
The Best book ever are the ones we have chosen. The best seller list is just that; which publishing house sold the most copies. Literature is art, and as we should all know by now, ART IS SUBJECTIVE!

Just another thought...

My favorite book of all time would have to be Go Ask Alice by Anonymous. It is one of the most interesting and unputdownable books I have ever read. Razz

My choices at the moment:

EVELINA by Fanny Burney (200 years old and still full of surprises)
SISTER CARRIE by Theodore Dreiser (could be adapted as the worst or best musical or opera ever)
THE PRINCESS BRIDE by William Goldman (rollicking fun)
NATIVE SON by Richard Wright (brilliant and involving)
THE END OF THE ROAD by John Barth (big influence in college)

Thoreau's Walden is the quite possibly the best book I have read thus far.

It should be required reading on the eve of anyones 30th birthday.

Best Book!
This is the best book I've read in a long time!

"He Who Goes First"
By Kevin J. Curtis

ISBN: 1-4137-4190-8

Edit [Moderator]: Link removed

"This is the story of a Mongol warrior who lived during Jenghiz Khan's empire. It is a new look at a frequently misunderstood culture and history. The participants are not bound by ideals of what is good or bad. Like their ancestor the wolf, they do not act out of cruelty or mercy. They live by a natural law, which has been lost on modern society. To judge them in the midst of our politically correct, industrialized world is like trying to convince a caveman of the merits of having a personal computer. Jenghiz Khan was perhaps the most brilliant uneducated man in history. He was a master of human nature. The men who helped him create his empire, like He-Who-Goes-First, were making their lives from the "raw materials" of the times they lived in. The warrior in this story struggles with his spirituality and his role as a soldier."
