    Probably one of Marcel Pagnol's books, "my father's glory" or "my mother's castle" maybe.

    That's not just books, that's a freaking time machine. Back to the beginning of this crazy 20th century, Provence, the sun on your face...wonderful.

How Phildickian is that?)
    That is nuts.

    Hi all, this is my first post on CBR. Apparently, according to Goodreads, my three favourite books are...

    The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury
    Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk
    High Fidelity by Nick Hornby

    This is pretty accurate although I'd be trying to find a way to fit The Beach by Alex Garland in there if I could.

    Two Trilogies:
    the Empire Trilogy (Daughter of the Empire, Servant of the Empire and Mistress of the Empire) by Raymond E. Feist and Janny Wurts
    the Deptford Mice Trilogy (the Dark Portal, the Crystal Prison and the Final Reckoning) by Robin Jarvis

    In both cases, I think the second novel is my favourite of the trilogies.

    I'm going to list two books because when written it was actually one long book that got split by the publisher.

    Hyperion and Fall of Hyperion by Dan Simmons.

    My favourite is 'Pobby and Dingan' by Ben Rice. It's a short story so very easy to get through, really nicely written though.

    "Watership Down" By Richard Adams. I've read that book so many times over the years. I liked it when I was 12 and I still like at 36.

    Really hard to pick one, but probably "Choke" by Chuck Palihniuk
    (probably butchered the spelling...)

I just bought the first season of the HBO series about a month ago and loved it. I couldn't stop watching it and went through all 10 episodes in like 3 days. What do you think of that book series? I've heard the first 3 books are outstanding but the last 2 seem to flounder, still plan on checking them out soon.
    ASOIAF is my favourite series. Id reccomend not reading it yet only on the grounds its not finished yet and once you start youll be addicted and itll ruin other fantasy for you (maybe).
