    I enjoyed those, too. Sounds like our tastes are pretty similar. If you haven't already, check out The Kingdoms of Thorn and Bone series by Greg Keyes. First book is The Briar King.

    I'd have to go with Catch-22. I've never laughed out loud reading before reading that book, and I have yet to do so since reading that books. A very comedic read.

    Yes that Jekyll, its a book about the history Monetary system, and the secret meeting held on that island 100 yrs ago.
    Its a history book, but some chapters get text book on u. Some of the true stories are awesome.
    I read it 11 yrs ago, and it predicted all the bailouts, and how the tax payers end up
    footing the bill. The boom and bubble bursts too. Its no joke.

    No kidding.

    My family goes there on vacation every other year and I've head stories about the place and money.

    At one point in time 1/10 of the entire planets wealth owned property on Jekyll Island.

    I'm definitely going to be reading this book in the near future, thanks!

    The Hannibal series. Read all 4 books and they are much better than the movies. I really enjoyed Clockwork Orange also.

    Anyone interested in fantasy should read Patrick Rothfuss. His first book is, The Name of the Wind and he just released his second book, The Wise Man's Fear. My favorite author of all time when it comes to fantasy though is David Gemmell. Also from Britian is Brian Ruckley. And last but not least on my list is Jim Butcher. I really enjoyed his Codex Alera series.
