  • 5 Favorite Books of All Time

    I saw the Movies and Video Games version, so I felt a book thread was worthy.

    2) "Make Love! The Bruce Campbell Way" by Bruce Campbell
    3) "The Prince" by Niccolo Machiavelli
    4) "A People's History of the United States" by Howard Zinn

    1) Moneyball by Michael Lewis
    2) Catcher In The Rye by JD Salinger
    3) Basketcase by Carl Hiaasen
    4) Texas by James Michener (it took me a year and a half but if any novel can keep me interested for that long than bring it on)
    5) Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostervsky

      Redwall by Jaques something something.
      Sword of Shannara was another one i liked back in the day
      Right now i'm reading Walden by Henry David Thoreau, i actually like it.
      and of course the entire goosebumps series.
      1984 by George Orwell

      I never read a lot in high school.. but the stuff i did read i usually liked.. The Great Gatsby, The Crucible and Of Mice and Men. I haven't read enuff to the point of making a good top five though.

              1. Under the Banner of Heaven by Jon Krakaeur
              2. The Draft by Pete Williams
              3. Bloody Sundays by Mike Freeman
              4. The Kid Who Only Hit Homers by Matt Christopher

              I probably have books that I would consider to be more favored over #3 and 4, but I can not remember them.

              I highly suggest everyone read Under the Banner of Heaven just from a knowledge standpoint. It truly blew me away and I learned a lot (not going to go deeper than that).

                    They basically already did. Cast Away is pretty much the same premise except for it happens in a tropical island instead of a forest.

                        I knew that when I mentioned making a movie for Hatchet, but the story is really different.
