The Book Thief by Markus Zusak is what I always recommend to people
User avatar #60 to #11 - crazyolitis (07/27/2013) [-]
The Deltora series. I really liked those books.

As others have said, a Song of Ice and Fire is good.
The Stand by Stephen King is also one of my favorites, and is widely regarded as one if his best works.

Do you like sci-fi or fantasy?

Four off the top of my head
A Song of Ice and Fire (A Game of Thrones is the first book, if you were interested you most likely would already have read them though)
The Sword of Truth series. Awesome fantasy wizards magic and the like.
The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. ****************** sci-fi comedy.
Enders Game is another great sci-fi, with some kinda meh sequels.

and if those genres don't tickle your fancy, there are some classics like Of Mice and Men, or Lord of the Flies, or To Kill A Mocking Bird.

Hopefully one of those is something you'd enjoy.

I like a wide variety of genres. I read all of the Harry Potter books so I guess I like fantasy. I really don't care as long as the story's great. But than you, Haven't read any of those.

I think you might enjoy The Forever War, it's a rather short sci-fi novel, but it's great all the way through and it never slows down.

If you like time travel stories then The Accidental Time Machine would be perfect, it's also one of those books that'll make your head spin if you think about it too much, and it does have an interesting outlook on the future.

I haven't read it myself actually, but I watched the TV-series of Under the Dome and I will get the book soon, if it's anywhere near the series then it's definitely worth checking out, it's full of mystery and filled with dark twists.

Red Planet is also a very old and classic sci-fi novel, it's rather simple in a way, but that doesn't stop it from being very enjoyable and well-written.

Retardedboss, some of these might go for you too.

Well if you don't mind long, I would definitely recommend A Game of Thrones. If you like it, read the rest of the series. If not, I gave a pretty good variety of books, so take your pick. Can't say you'll like all of them, but most are critically acclaimed.

"A Thousand Splendid Suns"
User avatar #44 to #23 - TarnRazor (07/27/2013) [-]
If you enjoy this book then I recommend "The Kite Runner". Same author.
#67 to #44 - livinglegacy (07/27/2013) [-]
Kite Runner is probably one of the only books I had to read for a class that I enjoyed(other than "read a book of your choice and report on it" assignments) Is A Thousand Splendid Suns worth reading if I liked Kite Runner? (If so, I'm going to look for a PDF or something of the book, so if you have one by the time you see this, that'd be nice, but just a yes or no as to whether or not the book would be worth reading is enough for me)
User avatar #83 to #67 - TarnRazor (07/27/2013) [-]
Definitely. If you truly enjoyed The Kite Runner, you'll enjoy this too. Here.

Thanks, dude. Surprising how friend FJ community can be when books are involved.
User avatar #48 to #44 - soflyy (07/27/2013) [-]
whats the story line like?

yes I enjoy it! its actually one of my favorite books. It's up there with "Ten Little Indians"
User avatar #49 to #48 - TarnRazor (07/27/2013) [-]
Same setting. Same genre. Way different story. It's hard to explain. Just the life of a traumatized kid as he grows up.
User avatar #50 to #49 - soflyy (07/27/2013) [-]
well with the tittle I feel I already might be hooked, because he likes to name his books something sort of opposite of the story.

So thank you for the recommendation! if you have any more, I am always taking recommendations
User avatar #51 to #50 - TarnRazor (07/27/2013) [-]
Kites are part of the story. Not an integral part of the story at first glance. But I think at the end, if you think about it hard enough, you'll get why he called the book "The Kite Runner".
User avatar #52 to #51 - soflyy (07/27/2013) [-]
well I always like books with twists,like how Miriam ended up following a man's order right to the end.

and seems like it will have me thinking, which is always a plus

Yeah I'm going to have to go with bobthedilder
User avatar #80 to #12 - suiker (07/27/2013) [-]
I think Robocunt and the Rug ******* of Afrophanactstan is better
User avatar #74 to #12 - visiting (07/27/2013) [-]
I might actually buy that
#66 to #12 - livinglegacy (07/27/2013) [-]
God dammit, I logged in just to see this link and it's apparently not even a serious book. I'll still read it, because I'm a desperate **** who wants words crammed into every orifice, but still...

**** you.” Lucifer elbowed the ******** into
traffic, waited for it to pick itself off the tires of a giant
dick-shaped bus with an advert for Baby Jesus’ brand
baglecunt ass sandwiches plastered on the side.
“Look, I’m sorry man. That was a ****** up thing
to do.”
“No worries.” Said the sack of ******** . “I had it
“No **** .” Said the bus driver, then waved. “You
***** be careful, okay! Playing grab ass in the street
with a sack of ******** is about the most dangerous
******* thing any retarded gimp brained cuntblast
could do.”
