Anything by Stephen King.

And for the Fantasy lovers: the Deathgate-series (not quite sure whether that's the right translation) by Weis&Hickman.

Asking a writer what he thinks about critics

Alright, I'm a HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE nerd, to just get that out of the way, and I love sharing my obsession of literature with the world, so, here are a few must reads, in my mind. It's up to you to actually do so.


1984 - George Orwell

Dragonlance Chronicles - Weiss and Hickman (if you like fantasy you will enjoy these HUGE books).

Invisible Monsters - Chuck Palaniuk

Ready, Okay! - Adam Cadre

and...

One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest - Ken Kesey

Thanks.  What a nice recommendation. 

  I noticed 1984 at my library the other day, so I'll try to check that one out.

Haven't read any of those.. i'll look for them..
Well, if you like novels about France and England royalty, I highly recommend you to read:
- The 3 musketeers (all 3 books)  - Alexandre Dumas
- The 3 crowns - Jean Plaidy

Also The Count of Monte Cristo of Dumas (what can I say? I'm a huge fan of Alexandre Dumas)

None reads the recommendations anyway...at least no one ever responded to any of the books I read. 

Very nice classics though! I like them all. Exept the fantasy, I never read fantasy, except for Tolkien

Well, the book is much better! I saw the movie first than reading the book, and then I kind of disliked the movie coz they change a lot of things.. Of course, how could they do a movie in 2 hours and a half of a book of almost 1000 pages??
I higly recommend the book.. It's much funnier and definitely much better! You get to understand things you didnt on the movie.. Lol.. you see? I'm talking too much... It's just I can't help it..
