Top 5

Well someone in the top 5 movies suggested this and I agree... so what are your top five books?

Mine...

1. The Source by James A Mitchener
2. Decipher by Stel Pavlou (read this 2x already, really good historical/science fiction)
3. The Kent Family Chronicles by John Jakes
4. Atlantis Found by Clive Cussler
5. The Left Behind Series (sans the final book) by LaHaye/Jenkins


I would include the Bible as it is the most known and widely read story in history, but it's a little bigger and wholey controversial than the average novel!

My top 6 (sorry -- couldn't narrow it down):

Life of Pi
Catch 22
The Sirens of Titan (Kurt Vonnegut)
Choke (Chuck Palahniuk)
A Year in the Merde and its sequel Merde Actually (Hilarious)
anything by Marian Keyes


I met Chuck Palahniuk at one of his readings and he was as entertaining as his books!!

Oh my - I don't know if I can narrw it to 5 but I;; try.

Love Story - first movie I ever bought, both as a VHS and a DVD

That Darn Cat - original

Homeward Bound tho I prefer the book -The Incredible Journey (original. not the new one)

(Not the 2nd two have Siamese cats in them)

You'e Got Mail

Reds - tho it veers off from some of the reality

Exodus even if the book is also not accurate historically.

(I like old fashioned movies to be honest and feel good ones. I also like historical or biographical ones)

Offtopic, I was very disappointed with the movie about Black September (forget the name of the movie) since it too left out way too much and if one had not lived through that and knew some things, I do think you'd miss some of the point. you'd get the them, yes but it misses some key areas. More Golda would have been good. I lived on a kibbutz in Israel not too long after this plan had been hatched and so for me, it's possible that this movie never can be made into two hours.
