The Best Book You Ever Read - Page 25

Hmm, it's hard to say what constitutes the best book I've ever read since I've read so many stories that have been considered as "The best book" at the time of reading it. However what was my favorite book at my teenage years is not my favorite book today, but does that mean I should relegate the old favorite to a lower position? Rather I think the best solution is to mention my favorite books throughout the ages. So I'll list them by my age range when it was my favorite.

Favorite book/series as a child - Animorphs

Favorite book/series as a teen - Harry Potter

Favorite book/series in the military - Sword of Truth Series

Favorite book/series in college - Drizzt the Drow Elf/Forgotten Realms series

Favorite book/series post college - The Magicians series by Lev Grossman

Favorite book/series currently - Coiling Dragon (Chinese fantasy novel).

Read You Book The

My favorites have changed as I grew up. As a child the first book I checked out of the school library was Where The Sidewalk Ends. I devoured it over the weekend and asked for it as my birthday gift.

Then there was the Wizard and Warrior choose your own adventure books. Then Where The Red Fern Grows, The Jack London books and anything Cryptizoological in nature.
When I was 10 my mom put a King book in my hands and I was hooked. It opened up the horror genre and I found Barker, Lovecraft, Poe and others. I read my first Forgotten Realms book at 17 and fell in love with the Drow and Menzoberronzan.
Then came Milton, Dante', Nietzsche, Voltaire, Socrates and Twain.
I love literature. Can't pick a favorite.

Just about anything by Terry Pratchett. But I think "Guards, Guards", "Lords and Ladies", "Fifth Elephant", "Interesting Times", and "Small Gods" give a great overview of the mix of humor, insight into human society, and love and sympathy for people that Pratchett displayed. They are the most self-aware books, without being pretentious, that I have ever read. And they are often truly laugh out loud hilarious.

It's always very difficult to chose one book to carry that title! But if I had to chose only one, considering one that really impact me, is a Brazilian one called "Meu Pé de Laranja-Lima".

I believe its name in English was translated to "My Sweet Orange Tree".

It tells the story of a very imaginative boy and how he handles the fact that his family needs him to start wondering around and face the "Real world". It's very sad, but beautiful.

Most recent book I finished reading was “ Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind” by Yuval Hariri. It gives an view of humankind as Homo Sapiens compared to the rest of the other species.

The Best Book You Ever Read

Well seeing how I'm a huge fantasy fan, I would have to go with Wizards First Rule (1st book of sword of truth series) by Terry Goodkind. It really sucks you in with an amazing story and great characters. I recommend anyone interested in fantasy books to read it.
