    Well, Fountainhead isn't that bad when you compare it to all her other work.

    I mean, has anybody ever finished Atlas Shrugged with out even skiping a chapter or two?
    ...And does Mr. Goddanm Batman says so much as ''Thanks''? OF COURSE not. That'd hardly be GRIM AND GRITTY, would it?

    I managed to get thru The Fountainhead last year; bits I liked, bits I didn't, and overall a tough slog of a read. I got Atlas Shrugged on my nook, so physically at least it'll be easier to get through; but I admit I'm in no hurry to start.

    "On the Road" by Jack Kerouac: I've read this book to completion at least 3 times not to mention all the times I've flipped through it just to reread my fav quotes from it.

    Samuel R. Delany's "Babel-17": I would love to see this accurately made into a movie.

    "The Left Hand of Darkness" by Ursula K. Le Guin :

    Isaac Asimov's original "Foundation" trilogy: Before he added two sequels & two prequels to the series.

    I have this collection called The Hugo Winners: Volumes 1 & 2: 1955-1970; edited by Asimov which contains works by Harlan Ellison, Poul Anderson, Robert Bloch, Arther C. Clarke, to name my most fav authors from the collection. There is this short story by Daniel Keyes called "Flowers for Algernon", that I challenge anyone to read and not be deeply moved by.

    Has anyone read "Ultimate World" by Hugo Gernsback? Pretty graphic descriptions of sex in zero gravity

    Babel-17, Foundation, and the Hugo Winners are all great books. On the Road I thought was interesting but it never really drew me in. I haven't read the others you mentioned.

    The Inheritors and Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner are both excellent. King's It is one of the many by him I haven't read.

    This thread has sorted out my reading for the weekend. Memoirs will definitely be a reread. The Inheritors was probably the first book I ever really loved. Thanks Scottish school curriculum!

    I'd give It a whirl. I'm not a huge King fan if I'm honest, but I've went back to that book at least four times.

    Definitely check out "The Left Hand of Darkness" then, it won both Hugo and a Nebula award. Ursula K. Le Guin is an amazing writer Also check out "Ultimate World", Gernback's best book. Its about an alien invasion of Earth and the author is the guy the Hugo Awards are named after.
