    Absolutely. Love them all. Twenty Years After, Vicomte de Bragelonne, Louise de Valliere, and the Man in the Iron Mask. Of the 5 books (Originally just 3) I thought LdV was a tad tedious, but all together they are freakin fantastic. Highly recommended.

    Forgot to mention, there was this paperback I found in my dad's drawer when I was 13, The Night Nurse, man I had a hard time putting that book down...

    Yeah, I found The Happy Hooker when I was about 13 or 14. It scared and excited me at the same time...

    Cannery Row and East of Eden by Steinbeck are great, any of the Sherlocks are good too.

    Without a doubt, The Holy Bible. I would say that it changed my life but that would be such an understatement that it would almost be a lie. Almost every aspect of my life is unrecognizable from before

    I love reading when I get the time. Fantasy is probably my favorite genre and what I read the most of.

    I'm in the processes of reading R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" and it's been absolutely amazing so far.

    Another great series (or trilogy if you're reading the newly published versions) is the Riyria Revelations by Michael J. Sullivan.

    For me, there is no best book. I have read hundreds of books, most were okay, some were lousy and a fair number were really, really good and I loved them, but there is no one book that I can say was the best I ever read. I recommend the following two books because they are stand outs for me. The first is an outstanding dark comedy and the second is simply a great story!
