What's Your Favourite Book?

Ask a Question

I love reading books. Fiction, scifi, self help, biographies, parenting etc... all sortsπŸ˜‚ my favourite book changes with each book I read.. my latest was about Vivienne Westwood... it was interesting read. I didnt know she had plenty of struggles and started out in early 70's! What's your favourite book?

Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre. I read them over again, have watched the different films and tv adaptations numerous times, I just love them. I love the other Jane Austen books too.

Mine is a child's book I read when I was about 11, and I still read it maybe every couple of years.

Danny the Champion of the World, by Roald Dahl.

blacklabrador I think I read it with my son😁 from my childhood ones I absolutely love A.De Saint-Exupery "The Little Prince". It's kids book but it's very clever with hidden meaning for adults.

jurgita0712 I think it's nice to revisit those things that gave us pleasure as kids.

Roald Dahl is clever in that his childrens books are so readable that any one of any age can enjoy them.

blacklabrador indeed. We recently read George's marvellous medicine. It's so funny. I'm trying to instill the love for books to my son too. Rather than just xbox and computer games and all the technology which surrounds us daily.

'Rendezvous with Rama' probably as the subject matter I find very exciting encountering an alien civilisation and technology. There is meant to be a film coming of this but seems to be in a production limbo.

Impossible to choose one favourite. I only ever read books I cannot put down. The Sunne in Splendour by Sharon Penman about the war of the roses. A trilogy by her about Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine. Anything by Anne O'Brien or Elizabeth Chadwick. A series of books by David Gilman called Masters of War.

I cannot praise enough a set of 6 books by Maurice Druon under the heading of the Accursed Kings.

chelseaturpin I struggled too first time. But I was pregnant and started crying at the thought of kids getting killed... but then I gave it another go. First few chapters seems a bit dragging but after that you start getting into it. I liked the books. The films were made too commercialised and sexual. I started watching it but got boredπŸ˜‚
