Neither of the last 2 posts are actually novels. They're both autobiographies. Btw Tauro, I've read that book too, and it's fucken awesome. Really enjoyed that one. And MMA, you're lucky if you own a copy of that book, because it's worth a shitload of money. My brother is after it.

My favourite novels are all written by Stephen King...

Needful Things
The Shining
The Long Walk (Written under psuedonym "Richard Bachman")

is it really? I bought mine at the book store franchise called 'Chapters' for $13.99. Tell him to get a copy off Amazon.com........Maybe a specific 'edition' is worth $$$, this is what my copy looks like:

If you look on Amazon their are several editions. There are a few fairly recent ones, but they don't have stock of any of them, so I'm not sure what the deal is with that. There's only private sellers with old copies which are all priced quite highly. The one you've got appears to recent since it has the mention of the 'Hurricane' movie on the cover. But even that edition seems to be hard to locate.

Stephen King - The Dark Tower Series
Dean Koontz - From The Corner of His Eye


co-sign

It took me mad long to get into the Koontz one but once I did I liked it a lot. Plus, the Dark Tower series was amazing. A lot of his other books tie in with that shit.

1984 By George Orwell
This is one of the few novels I have read twice. Great book. Animal Farm is good too.
Stephen King - The Dark Tower Series
These are the only King books I haven't read. I just can't get into that fantasy shit. Although I did thoroughly enjoy The Talisman.

Well, gotta warn you, it's a VERY HARD READ. It's long, half of it is in french with captions and you may find it dissapointing. I would recommend reading Crime & Punishment by Dostoyevsky first, and see if u like that. If you do, you might like and enjoy War & Peace

Yeah, the French part is translated. By "dissapointed" I mean a lot of my friends actually read it from start to finish only to find out that they didn't like it. And it's very different from the Western novels

1984 By George Orwell

I'll go along with that.

Germinal by Emile Zola and The Man In The High Castle by Phillip K.Dick (and pretty much everything else I've read by PKD as well) are brilliant as well.
