This is a thread to discuss books that you have enjoyed reading and those that can be left on the shelf. Discuss all your favorites, not just Star Wars books.

Some of my personal favorites have been LOTR (naturally), Wicked and all of Brian Lumley's works. As for Star Wars, the usual suspects, Shadows of the Empire, the Thrawn books, X Wing series and now all of the Republic Commando books.
And before anyone says anything, yes I spelled favorites the American way :D

Evo if you enjoy that series by Diana Wynne Jones, I recommend trying her Moving Castle series - Studio Ghibli filmed the first one (Howl's Moving Castle, see http://www.newearthonline.co.uk/article/628 for a review) and the outcome was really good.

Little Brother by Cory Doctorow is the last book I read. It also happens to be the best thing I have read for about 10 years and the only book ever to make me contact the author and thell them how much I enjoyed it.

Ironically, considering the origin of this forum, I thought Outbound Flight was the dullest Star Wars book I've come across so far. lol

Also, stay well away from the Amtrak Wars saga. I think Grey_Paladin_Dez will back me up on how massive a waste of time that whole thing was.

Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit have to be the longest and slowest read of my life

good films but the books seemed to drag.

still when you have 6 months in Bosnia plenty of time to read em..... :lol:

Ok.... In my honest opinion i've read some awesome books..

"Chickenhawk" by Robert Mason. A truly brilliant autobiography of a Chopper pilot in Vietnam. Read it and weep!

"Hunt for Red October" by Tom Clancy. WAY better than the movie!

"Sniper one" by Dan Mills. First hand account of a SNIPER unit in Affghanistan holding Terry Taliban at bay! http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sniper-One-Blis ... 0718149947

"APACHE" by Ed Mason. The Army Air Corps first contacts and heroic rescues in Affghanistan of British forces!
(I thouroughly recommend this book! Read this one and truly Know what OUR boys are really doing in the name of our Country!)

"MEG" by Steve Alten. By FAR the Best shark stories you will ever read....and he has written sequels that are even better!
Chech out..http://www.stevealten.com/

anyone who likes science fiction books I recommend reading Larry Niven's novels... probably best to start with Ringworld.
